    This issue does appear to be caused by a version of Flash 9.

    I disabled my Active X control Shockwave Flash 9 Object thru the IE settings and I didn't have any problems after that bringing up the MSNBC page.

    Flash9.ocx (Adobe) <---- argh!


     


    Ok thanks, not to be a complete dolt or anything, but how do I uninstall Flash?


    First run a little test to confirm it is Flash 9:

    1. In IE go to the Tools menu
    2. Internet Options
    3. go to Programs tab
    4. Select Manage Add-ons
    5. Select Shockwave Flash Object
    6. Choose 'Disable'
    7. Click 'OK'
    8. Try the MSNBC article again. Should work now.

    To uninstall Flash 9, go to Control Panel, choose Add/Remove Programs, Select Adobe Flash Player 9 ActiveX, Select 'Change/Remove'.



    Darn, still doesn't work.

    What the heck is wrong with my IE.

    Is there an IE doctor in the house?


    Did you restart IE after you disabled/uninstalled it?

    hehe, well no.
    I was following your instructions.

    I just restarted IE, and retried ...
    and it works!

    Thanks a bunch.

    But now I can't play Dj Fu?

    I've got 2 machines that will display the page & launch the chest scan video & the interactive lung cancer animation all without errors.

    Machine 1:

    XPSP2 w/IE7 & flash9.ocx ver 9.0.16.0

    Machine2:

    Win2K SP4 w/IE6 & flash9.ocx ver 9.0.16.0

    But strangely Firefox opens it without any problems...


    No need to get surprise... Firefox is really a better browser.

    FireFox is much worse at handling plugins --
    CPU% is very high for Flash on FF.
    QuickTime crashes FF frequently.

    Other than that, it's better than IE, I think.

    It looks like a shockwave issue. I'll get someone to look at it, probably not IEs fault, shockwave seems to be doing the navigation.

    I'm on the IEUX team. My petknep@MS account got nubbed and won't let me in, attempts to retrieve the password have been unsuccessful. Charles also hasn't given me an MS tag.

    I work in Bruce's team for Li (see team tour video). I'm the "new" guy on the UX team so while I do own a few features, I try to pick up all the loose ends to try to own more things [6]

    It's probably related to what was presenting here http://channel9.msdn.com/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=215369. I don't think <script> tags are allowed inside a table.

    Thanks for your hard-work and investigation into this matter Smiley

    So I am wondering, are you a C9 lurker, or does MS supply interns that patrol MS forums and feed possible bugs, glitches and feature enhancements into some type of queue that then gets routed appropriately?

    I'm a lurker. I don't get paid to read C9, I do UX coding. Interns don't have time to troll forums, they are too busy trying to finish their intern projects.
