Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

"Error in writing scripts"

This is my second request for help. I have Internet Explorer. Am getting frequent yellow-box messages like: "An error has occurred in writing scripts to this page." An earlier Fixya response told me to load the latest version of Java. Did that. The yellow messages are still occuring, on web pages, name it. I always click "Continue Anyway" and sometimes they go away, sometimes they don't and I have to log out and start over. Anybody got any ideas? - Jeremy

Keep getting a box popping up talking about script errors. how do we stop that?

If you use Internet Explorer as your Web browser, chances are you have experienced, or will experience, popup script errors. Typically, a dialog box may appear stating "A Runtime Error has occurred. Do you wish to Debug?" or "Internet Explorer Script Error. An error has occurred in the script on line 1. Do you wish to continue running scripts on this page?" These errors can be distracting and interfere with your Web browsing experience. If you would like to stop receiving these error messages, you must modify your IE settings.

Open IE, select "Tools" and ten choose "Internet Options." The Internet Options dialog box will open. Click on the "Advanced" tab, scroll to the "Browsing" section and then select the "Disable Script Debugging" box.

Clear the "Display a notification about every script error" box under the same section if it has been selected. Click "Apply" and then choose "OK" to modify your IE settings. You will receive no more IE script error notifications. Hope this helps.

I keep getting a box on my screen every time i try to do anything. it says EvalInsandbox:SyntaxError:syntaxerror

Correct a Syntax Error Syntax errors are the most common problem for developers. A single syntax error can cripple even the best applications and websites. You can correct syntax errors easily once you find them. Typical errors include missing commas, semicolons and parenthesis. Debuggers are available in many software development kits to aid you in the location of syntax errors. However, you can find and correct syntax errors manually as well. Learning how to correct syntax errors is an essential part of being a software developer.

Locate the syntax error manually. Step through each section of your code. Most code will be sectioned off into groups or functions. Carefully proof your code. Be sure to pay close attention to how lines are grouped. A common syntax mistake is incorrect grouping.

For instance, if you have an If Else statement embedded in another If Else statement, be sure the embedded statement is surrounded by a separate set of parenthesis or brackets, depending on your language. Double-check notes sections. Notes are only for the developer to see. However, if the syntax isn't correct, the notes may become part of your application, which may not agree with existing code. Ensure the syntax around your notes is correct. Run a debugger if possible. This will make locating errors much easier. A debugger will be found under a menu such as Debug, Run or Tools or as part of your SDK's toolbar. Allow the debugger to run. Errors will be listed at the bottom or right side of your screen. Many debuggers will highlight possible errors in your code as well. A line number, along with the possible error, will be listed in the error message. Locate your syntax error if the debugger isn't correct. Sometimes a debugger will show you where your application stopped working correctly. The syntax error itself may be above or below the line listed in the debugger message. Check all syntax within the surrounding area, especially within the line's function. Run your application after correcting the syntax error. Check every possible function of your application to ensure it works correctly. If you find a problem, double-check the syntax in your code that surrounds the problem area. For instance, if your application has a log-in screen that isn't accepting passwords correctly, check the code for the log-in screen. Remove Syntax Error syntax error typically occurs when the Web page you are loading causes a script error in the browser. This is caused by incorrect code that displays an error message or results in a Web page that does not load correctly. You can remove a syntax error by making a change to the settings of your Web browser. Common Web browsers that can experience this type of error include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
Double-click the "Internet Explorer" icon to open the program. Click the "Tools" drop-down menu and select "Internet Options." This will display the Internet Options window. Go to the "Advanced" tab and scroll down to the "Browsing" section. Remove the check from the box for "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)," "Disable script debugging (Other)" and "Display a notification about every script error." Click the "Apply" button to save the changes. Click the "OK" button to close the Internet Options window. Close and restart the Internet Explorer browser for the changes you made to take effect. b> Mozilla Firefox b> Double-click the "Mozilla Firefox" icon to open the program. Type "about:config" into the address bar and press the "Enter" key. Type "dom.max_script_run_time" into the Filter text box and press the "Enter" key. Double-click "dom.max_script_run_time" to display the Enter Integer Value dialog box. Enter a value of "10" or "15" into the text box and click the "OK" button to save the change. Close and then restart the Firefox browser for the change to take effect. b> Safari b> Click the "Safari" icon to open the Web browser. Select the option for "Preferences" from the menu bar. Go to the Advanced tab and click the option for "Show Develop menu in menu bar." Click the option for "Develop" from the menu bar. Click the option for "Disable Runaway JavaScript Timer." Close and re-open the browser for the change to take effect. Hope this helps.

Script problem in Explorer 8

What should you do about Internet Explorer script errors?

In most cases, you can ignore them. Script error messages are displayed by Internet Explorer when there is a problem with the JavaScript or VBScript code on the website you are viewing. Occasionally a script error can be caused by an error in downloading a webpage, but more often it is an error in the webpage itself.

To be sure it isn't an error in downloading, click the Refresh button, or press F5.

If the error persists, and you are not a developer testing a website, you should click No to ignore the error.

To avoid script errors in the future, you can turn off script debugging and notifications in Internet Explorer. Script error debugging and notifications are turned off by default. If they have been turned on, follow these steps to turn them off again.

  1. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

2. Click the Advanced tab, select the Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) and Disable script debugging (Other) check boxes.

3. Clear the Display a notification about every script error check box, and then click OK.

Can anybody help me figure out why I get the below message and how I can fix it? Thank-you Webpage error details User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR...

Internet Explorer 7 cannot display a particular element on a Web page on that Web site.

Workaround 2 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); You can turn off friendly HTTP error messages in Internet Explorer. This workaround still lets the error message appear. However, Internet Explorer does not move away from the page after the error occurs. This workaround works only for Internet Explorer 6.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the Advanced tab, click to clear the Show friendly HTTP error messages check box under the Browsing section, and then click OK.
  3. Close the browser.

To resolve this issue:
  1. In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
  2. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. Click to clear the HTTP 1.1 check box, and then click OK.
  4. Test to determine if the issue is resolved. If the issue is resolved, do not complete the remaining steps. If the issue is not resolved, go to the next step.
  5. In Internet Explorer, click Internet Options on the Tools menu.
  6. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  7. Click to clear the Show friendly HTTP error messages check box.
  8. Try to view a Web page to reproduce the error message and to receive a new, more descriptive error message. This new error message may be similar to the following: HTTP version not supported by program name. Note the name of the program in this new error message.
  9. The program name that you noted in step 8 may be the cause of this issue. Either remove this program, or reinstall it.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
