Access "http://online.wsj.com/home-page", Download File

Post by tomrausch » Thu May 21, 2009 2:52 pm

When I access the site "http://online.wsj.com/home-page", Avant Brower apparently attempts to download the file "blocker.swf" from the local host, but cannot. The following windows appear:

1) File Download - Getting File Information: blocker.swf from localhost (the file does not download)
2) Microsoft Internet Explorer - Internet Explorer cannot download blocker.swf from localhost./Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unvavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.

This does not occur in Internet Explorer. As I recall, this problem started in Avant Browser 11.7 Build 28; it did not occur in Avant Browser 11.7 Build 26 and earlier.

Avant Browser Version 11.7 build 31
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.5512.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236

I think I need to upgrade, too, but this is a work computer, and they control the level of IE on the machine, and there is no upgrade planned.

This problem does not occur on my home computer, which has the same level of Avant Browser, but is running IE 8.0.7100.0.

Sorry dude i didnot know it was a work computer. Is there anyway you could suggest that you fellow workers need to update IE- 7 or IE- 8. You could say it is best it has more features that would benaffit for all . PS just a suggestion. :) :wave:

This problem is no longer occurring even though I remain at the same levels of IE and Avant Browser. wsj.com must have made a change to their Web page which corrected the problem.

I'm using avant browser 11.7 and IE 7. I'm getting this problem too. If I upgrade to IE 8 will it fix this problem?

Thanks

Hayley
