Works fine in FF3 but not in IE8.

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help me here.

This page works fine in FF3 but not in IE8.

The part I'm talking about is the countdown clock just below the navigation. Shows in FF3 but not in IE8

It's been there quite a while now (about 6 months) and I've only just noticed that it's not working. I'm sure it was.

What I do notice is that IE8 seems to be downloading one more item, according to the status bar. This is not the case in FF. Is there a way of finding out what that item might be? I'm stumped here.

Fixed

This is now fixed. There was a bit of extraneous code in there that is now removed.

I'm not able to reproduce the problem, the countdown bar displays in IE8 with out a problem, for me.

I tested on two separate computers running windows 7, I also changed to compatibility view and Quirks mode.

In all settings the countdown clock was displayed correctly.

Sorry Jason, we seem to have cross posted.

I downloaded the latest version of the script I'm using and compared the two with winmerge. There was an extra folder in my existing file for a link. When I removed it, it worked!

Still a mystery. I suppose FF is more forgiving than IE!

Anyway, alls well.

yes, FireFox is definitely more forgiving than IE.


Glad to hear it working again.
