IE stack overflow - stack.bmp (0/1)

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by David Sherman, Jul 5, 2006.

  1. When I open up this page:

    http://www.mercurynews.com/mld/mercurynews/business/technology/

    I get this error
    ---------------------------
    Windows Internet Explorer
    ---------------------------
    Stack overflow at line: 458
    ---------------------------
    OK
    ---------------------------


    I am running IE 7, beta 3.

    Under Internet options, I have disabled both script degugging items.

    What is wrong?

    thanks

  2. I don't get any error.

    1. You might want to refresh your scripting engine:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/webdev.asp
    Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...43-7e4b-4622-86eb-95a22b832caa&DisplayLang=en

    Sometimes there's a corrupt file in the cache and one must go to Tools |
    Internet Options and click Delete Files.

    2a. Start>Run>Regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    2b. Start>Run>Regsvr32 jscript.dll

    3. Re-register all DLLs listed in http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=281679

    5a. IE Tools>Internet Options>Advanced>Browsing>Enable third-party browser
    extensions (uncheck & reboot).

    5b. Find the hijacker that caused 5a to be checked (or if none were checked,
    check for hijackware anyway):

    The "refresh script engine" suggestion/d/l link from Frank worked like a charm.

    No problem. It seems like every post/problem I'm curious about or have a
    problem with, you're the script guy. While I've got your attention, this
    one's makin' me nuts. One of those "forest for the trees" thingies.

    I agree the coding ain't according to Hoyle, but something's "askew" with
    the javascript handling by IE7B3. This page opens in Opera, NN, FF, etc., but
    NOT IE7B3.
    Thanks again

  6. IE7 is much less forgiving of coding that does not meet the standards. This
    is in response to all of the complaints over the years. I'm sure Ian and
    dndd1 know more about HTML coding than I do.
