    When I try the part number search, I get "Internet Explorer can not display page". I tried to refresh the screen & got a repeat message. Strange thing is, when I hit the back button, it showed the part search screen for a second & then gave the message again.  ???

    I had that same prob on another page (don't remember which).  Works fine in firefox, but for some reason IE won't show it.  One time I hit refresh like 50 times, on each reload I would see it and it would go away, 1 time it worked and stayed up.  IE bug?

    Hi Sam

    Still having problems with the parts datatbase...have tried several different ways to get into it to no avail. When you get some spare time also look at the edit part numbers feature, I believe that had an issue also.
    Thx-Stevo

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
       
       Most likely causes:
    You are not connected to the Internet.
    The website is encountering problems.
    There might be a typing error in the address.
     
       What you can try:
         Diagnose Connection Problems 
     
         More information

    This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

    Internet connectivity has been lost.
    The website is temporarily unavailable.
    The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
    The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
    If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

    I fixed the VIN decoder, but the part number database is stumping me.  It works fine in all browsers except Internet Explorer.  It actually does load in Internet Explorer, but it it immediately replaced with the cannot display page.

    So for now try using it in firefox, when I get some time I will probably have to recode the whole things which will take a while.

    Thanks for your upkeep and update on these issues.  If it helps any, I've tried IE 6 and 7, with and without patches.  It works better on 7 in that I can hit the "stop" or the "back" and occasionally get it to land on the correct page.

    i am not sure what they did when they messed up the newest updates to windows and IE but those 2 items are causing all kinds of havoc on lots of peoples computers.

    a lot of it has to do with the Active X files needed and windows no longer giving the little "bar" across the top of the page to let you know. so now your page will start to load and just set there forever and then finally after a few lifetimes a little box pops up saying that an item on the page may need an active x control and may not be viewable. sometimes you click ok and it works, others you click the ok and it kills the page.

    makes it even worse if you have any of the good pop up blockers as it wont even give the little window for you to decide if you want it or not.

    gets even more fun if you try the IE8 beta program. lol

    That is why I use firefox and Google Chrome to browse websites.  IE doesn't even follow the correct CSS standards, they are trying to force everyone else to use their standards.  IE is buggy and has too many security issues compared to Firefox.

    i havent really used chrome to much, i use firefox quite a bit, but if i am going to go to a fairly graphics intense site i use safari. firefox has been having issues of really choppy scrolling with graphics loaded pages.

    my personal opinion at the moment is none of the browsers offer everything they could or should. therefore we are almost forced to use multiple browsers.

    hmm, I haven't had those issues with firefox.  I wonder if cpu hardware affects that?

    dont know on the cpu hardware causing it or not, but if you do a search for firefox+choppy scrolling it brings back a ton of hits and various issues
