There is a particular site which is causing one of my clients no end of trouble. The site is www.collectorcartraderonline.com
and the problem is that when they click on any of the featured photo ads (and probably in a lot of other places as well), the browser window starts to load the page and then closes down.
Everything works fine on my machine.
His environment is Win XP Home running IE6 and all the latest critical and security patches are applied. It also fails in exactly the same way whe he uses FireFox.
My environment (for what it's worth) is Win2000pro with IE6 (but not necessarily all the latest patches) but I've also tried on various other machines on my network (XPpro/IE6, Win98/IE5) and got no failures.
I found that if I saved the source of the page in question (from my machine) and copied it to a file on his machine (test.htm) then double clicking on that file produced exactly the same problem. This at least gave me something I could try debugging and I found that the statement causing the problem was
<applet codebase="/applets/" Code="apPopupMenu" Archive="/applets/apPopupM
enu.jar" Width="636" Height="38" MAYSCRIPT>
It's OK before it (alert("got here");) but not after it.
I assume that there's probably some setting on his machine which could be causing this but have little idea where to look.
Has anybody any ideas? Indeed, is there a better topic to be seeking the answer to this question?
