Hi friends and visitors of hillybillyfarmgirl!
Over the past few days users of Internet Explorer might have dad difficulties reaching my blog or other peoples blogs (all over the world) and received following error message:
"internet explorer cannot open this website, operation aborted"
Users with Firefox or Safari were not affected.
It seems that no one really knows where the problem is, some say it occurs only with older versions of IE and that an update to IE 8 would help, but that was not the case with my PC.
I personally use an Apple Machine with Firefox and Safari as browsers, but we also have a PC in the house that had problems reaching my own blog with IE.
The update didn't have any effect.
So I don't think IE IS the problem at all.
I also read online that the problem is with Blogger.com and that they are working on fixing it...
That will probably take forever...
They recommend bloggers who's sites are unreachable to remove one or some of the Widgets in the sidebar like the "Followers" widget, because it might "solve" the problem.
That is what I just did and it seems to have worked.
It is not a satisfactory solution for me though because I like that widget, but I don't have any other choice right now it seems.
I hope Blogger.com will come up with a REAL solution soon, so I can put my widget back up again...
OR users could also change from IE to Firefox or Safari or other Browsers...!!
Please let me know IF and When you had problems...
I'd like to use this opportunity to thank all the kind people who come here and visit my blog on a regular basis!
It's great to have so many people from all over the world "here" and I am always happy if some of them take the time to leave a short comment. If not, it's OK too!
If time allows it I will visit your blogs and leave a note too, I promise!
Blogging is a fun thing to do, isn't it?!!
