Grrrrr....Blogger Issues

Sorry if you are having issues viewing my blog lately. I know I've had issues with other bloggers blogs lately, and when someone emailed me today to tell me they had been getting the same message I was, I did a friendly google search on the matter.

Here's what I pulled from the Blogger Board:

Some users are seeing an 'Operation Aborted' error message when trying to load their blogs from Internet Explorer. We're looking into this and will update this message when we have a fix.We apologize for the inconvenience.Update (May 26): We are still working on resolving this bug. This only affects viewers using IE to view the blog; for right now, blog owners can either move the Followers gadget lower in their sidebar, or remove it altogether. Either action will eliminate the pop-up dialog box in IE.

BUT....I've read a few other things too, that say it has nothing to do with the Followers Widget that most bloggers are using on their blogs. I've also read that people are switching to FireFox as their web browser and this has eliminated the error message.

Just thought I'd pass along the information in case there are others frustrated with the issue.

Hey Lisa,
Have you tried using Firefox instead of IE? I used to have these same type of problems and then changed to Firefox (I actually heard about it on Oprah lol) and I have not had one issue since.
Here's a link to Firefox
Good luck! Love your blog BTW!

Firefox is much much better than IE! You may have to download an extra thing to listen to radio live, but I think that's the only issue I've had an it was real quick to fix!

And the really frustrating thing is that it appears to be totally random as to which blogger blogs it is effecting! Some can also be fixed by using the compatibiity viewer trick. I have noticed though that it happens most on blogs using the newer newtworked follower rather than the older Google followers widget. Luckily it hasn't been an issue for me with your blog (see what I mean - some are having issues according to your post and some aren't.) Very weird situation. I'm thinking about adding Firefox as a back up but I'm pretty set in my ways with IE. Besides Firefox is so much slower and has a few other glitches (at least when I use it on my uplines computer!).

Thanks for hanging in there and passing on the info.

Hugs - Jean
