User's IE displays after loading part of the source code from the bottom of the page
Posted on 2013-01-03
I have not been able to duplicate this behavior, except by viewing pages where I purposely cut off the top part of the HTML.
While this seems like a browser problem (since it hasn't happened to anyone else yet), my responsibility is to make sure that it never happens to anyone. So I have to essentially make sure that the code is telling the browser to wait until the whole page loads. The application was written in PHP.
To understand the problem, I'm trying to figure out the following:
1) Why does it only happen to this one user?
2) Is there some setting in IE that might cause it to display the page after just getting a little bit of source code from the bottom instead of waiting until it has the complete page?
3) Why is the user getting part of the page from the bottom instead of from the top?
4) How can I force the browser to not do this? I don't want it to display a blank page either, of course; but I do want it to at least try to display the entire page.
