'style.display' is null or not an object

I have a user who has to access a secure website for downloading information. When she goes to the page and clicks on the link she gets "style.display is null or not an object". The page has worked in the past and works for other users. Just not her.

I had her empty her browser (IE) cache. No help.

Everything I can find about this error message is for programming, not end users.

I know the page works; I've used it myself. But it gives this message every time for her.

She needs this to work so she can do her job!

Thanks in advance.

Not enough information to help you.

There is obviously an error on the page which needs to be solved by a programmer.
You need to contact the site owners/webmasters and tell them.

Without looking at the page in question I cannot help you further

Well, the page has worked for months on this very computer. It works on every other computer. It works when this user logs into the site from another computer.

It doesn't sound like the error is in the page programming to me.

It sounds like there's a bad script loaded into the cache or something like that. Except I had her clear the cache and that didn't fix it.

Is there anywhere else a downloaded script from this page could be stored on this machine?

Did she click ctrl-f5 after closing, opening and navigating to the offending site?

Is her compatibility settings the same as the othe computers or dud she perhaps enable compatibility for all sites?

Thanks so much. Ctrl-F5 cleared it up.

Don't know about the compatibility mode suggestion.

That was just in case. Ctrl f5 is almost always a good idea when refreshing cashed data
