New Blogger Internet Explorer Glitch

Cross-posted from Faultline USA

If you use Internet Explorer, there’s a good chance that 15-30 seconds after opening my blog you will get an “Operation Aborted” box pop up. Just close the box and hit the back button to read the blog.

I wasted most of yesterday trying to figure out what had happened to my blog. I deleted the last two posts, a sidebar poll, and turned off a third party add on that I thought might have caused the problem. But the problem persisted.

Later in the day it became evident that several, but not all, bloggers were encountering the same problem. See Blogger Help Group.

According to Known Issues for Blogger:

Some users are seeing an 'Operation Aborted' error message when trying to load their blogs from Internet Explorer. We're looking into this and will update this message when we have a fix.

We apologize for the inconvenience. — latest update on Thursday, May 21, 2009

Solution: Use Firefox (or Safari, for Macs). Screw Microsoft.

To ALL: Please put TAGS in the box marked LABELS, tags and labels are the same thing, and it takes less space in the body of a post...

Faultline: I have no issues with your blog opening other than it's SLOW, that's likely due to having a ton of stuff in the sidebar...

Actually, my blog opens immediately for most folks but I guess that would depend upon the browser you are using. The current IE Blogger glitch is something new effecting quite a few Bloggger blogs, but not all.

Dave using Firefox or Safari isn't a solution since over 90% of my readers are still using IE. It's only a solution for the blogger not the reader.

The glitch has absolutely NOTHING to do with IE, I use IE AND Firefox and your blog opens SLOW in both, as does ChicagoRay, but it opens, it ALL depends on how much stuff you have in the side bar(s)...

Everyone wants to blame IE and it's NOT IE, it's Blogger, it's FREE, and you get what you pay for...
