GAAARRRR....... Since yesterday, 80% of the blogs I visit I get an annoying loud "BONK" noise and then a window appears saying that Internet Explorer cannot open (insert blog name/url) ...Operation Aborted.
Thought it was just me, however according to a bunch of posts on the Blogger help forum it is a glitch with the blogger site, and probably connected to the Friend/follower widget. Hmmm, what has changed to make this just start? Whatever, indications are this is being looked into and will hopefully be fixed soon. Fingers crossed!
Hi Sue, thanks for the heads up...I just got on and will let you know if I'm having problems...I will keep my fingers crossed...I believe Blogger needs to upgrade their server! eeekkkk Have a great night!
That explains it!
I tend to have 20-40 comments a day.
Today - zilch.
I thought I had halitosis, and I've brushed my teeth ten times to get rid of it.
Glad it was blogger and not the onion and sardine sandwiches.
What I like (not) is when the window appears, it freezes the screen, unless you click the "ok" button - then the window disappears and for about 10 seconds (ya gotta read fast) the blog you are visiting stays, before you get "Internet Explorer can not display this page".
I have some of those problems... the Bonk noise for sure... it's weird in this world of blogs....
AND I DON'T LIKE IT!!!!
I have to ask-- why in pants are you using IE? Download Firefox or Opera-- I haven't had any problems with them and the blogness.
LOL "why in pants???" never heard that one before, love it! I know, I really should download Firefox, I just seem to keep sticking with IE.
The same thing happened to me all day.
lol I too like the 'why in pants.'
I use Firefox too--never IE unless I have to. Download it Sue...so much better :]. Plus, Firefox will spell check for you as you type in all these little text boxes.
Yes, I experienced the blogger glitch yesterday ... and I thought it was "just me" ... I could visit other people's blogs ... but not my own LOL, anyway, one of my friends suggested that I download Firefox - which I have - and I am not having any more problems with blogger!
Good I keep feeling like I should post to people why I am not answering them or visiting their blogs.
It is so annoying.
I love what you said about your Mom Sue that was so heartfelt. I felt it come off the page.
Love Renee xoxo
gah... I thought it was just me too! Good! Blogger get that SH*T fixed!
Hmm...I use Firefox too, and never haven't had anything happen either...so, maybe a good idea to switch?
LOL--oy poor Tristan, that comment cracked me up--as did "why in pants" :D
Sue I got them too yesterday and again this morning. I tried even copying the blog address into another window and still got it. I kept trying and finally got one to open. Thought it was just me!
Just checked the "known Issues" on Blogger Status, apparently Google is still working on this problem.
I hesitate to download Firefox on my own, however once hubby is home (my inhouse computer whiz), I'm going to have him do it for me.
thank you for posting this ... I thought it was just me! :) hopefully the fix is only moments away.
Sign me op...lol. Wondered what was going on...thanks for the info!
I got the same problem on my blog today. Googled around but couldn't figure out the problem. Then started playing around with the options and figured that if I turned off comments "Embedded below post" option (and chose "Full page" instead), the problem went away. So, this is a workaround to this problem.
Forgot to mention that the problem didn't hit the main blog page (http://deepfriedbrain.blogspot.com) but most 'post' pages.
