Unable to display thejapanesepage.com with IE8

Postby chikara » Mon 11.01.2010 9:39 pm

I have been unable to display thejapanesepage.com with IE8 for a couple of days now. All I see is a blank page.

Yesterday the error was;

I'll have to reboot into windows and check it out for myself. That worldfriends stuff has been a big headache for awhile now, and was at fault for causing the page to take 30 to 45 seconds to load recently for people like Dustin and Humdinger etc. :(

I set the scripts to "deferred loading", so that the page would load everything else first and then load them, but it appears there are still further problems with the scripts themselves.

Let me see what I can do.

Sounds like it started at the exact same time as our issues too, what a PITA

Hope you can fix it phreadom :p

I’ve been having the same problem.
IE9(Beta) gives me only a blank page. Safari(5.0) didn’t work properly yesterday but it seems fine now. Google Chrome has been working fine.
Thank you, Phreadom-san. But I know you work very hard to maintain and improve this great website. Please don’t work too hard. Take care of yourself.
Cheers! :)

That actually happen to me too. It seems that IE8's update from Microsoft has some issues going on, of java script unable to open, connect, or display some web pages and sites.
So now I'm using Firefox 3.6.12. and I would use IE8 to use Wikipedia along with the Microsoft translator, Very useful, but slow on loading the websites sometimes

Joey, you might want to try Google Chrome, which also has built in translation (if it detects a page isn't in your native language, it offers you a bar along the top of the page to choose the languages to translate from→to). :) It loads a lot faster than IE8 for me, and has much better standards support etc.

Can everyone check again and let me know if everything is working OK now?

Since the deferred loading appeared to break other things, I moved the common js file to be local instead of remote, disabled deferred loading again, and changed a spot of the js so that the rotating images would work in Google Chrome again.

The code for that js file is terrible to work with, so as long as it works, that's all I'm doing with it for the moment. :)

It loads for me fine now in IE8, FireFox 3.6.12, Opera 10.51, Safari 5.x, and Google Chrome 8.x.

Let me know if you spot any other troubles. :) Thanks! :bow:

I've figured out that if a page was displaying correctly then suddenly starts showing a blank page after loading it is sometimes due to an error in the website certificate. When the browser goes to validate the website it will show a blank page. Turing off your browser's certificate verification to allow the page to display again. Just make sure you do it with trustworthy sites and turn it back on afterward. :D
