Default PBW incompatible with IE 6 SP 1?

Ever since upgrading to SP 1 of IE 6, the PBW site has been acting kind of weird. Sometimes (such as right now), it wants to download menu.jsp instead of open it in the page. Very odd.

I am currently running IE6 and SP1, no problems there.

Must be something else.

It's just one of those oddities i guess, good old buggy Microsoft software

I am running the same Version as both of you and having no trouble with the site

Fyron, check with your school network's system administrator -- you may be experiencing your troubles not entirely because of what software you are using ... the school may be using a proxy, which isn't wroking well with downstream Users who have IE6SP1 installed. Or the proxy may be slightly java intolerant. OR somehting along those lines.

It doesn't happen consistantly, only occasionally.

Do you have any sort of download accelerators or download managers installed? Sometimes they'll try to download files that should be displayed...

No I don't.

The problem has gotten worse today. Now, I can't ever get the menu.jsp file to load in its frame. It keeps wanting me to download it.

Fyron,

I've no idea what's going on here, but it's obviously not IE6/SP1 as a general case. A couple of thoughts:

(1) Is this problem happening to you on any other pages that use both frames and JSP? (Or with any other dynamic content pages, for that matter).

(2) Did you install anything else other than IE6/SP1 at or near the same time?

(3) Did you recently change any settings (I'm thinking cookies here) in IE? Or did the installation change cookie settings for you?

(4) Have you tried clearing your Cache and history?

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Eric (PBW UI Guy)

Clearing the browser Cache has helped.

I only saw the problem with PBW. Sometimes, it tried to download mainbody.html instead. Most odd.

Likewise. Sometimes I have to hit reload on my dialup to get a PBW page to build right, but that's all it takes. Unless PBW is actually down. Maybe just a network slowdown, even if you're not using a modem.
