osC 2.3.1 with WinXP & IE8 problem(s)

I tried long ago to find a solution to this problem and was unsuccessful.

 

With WinXP SP3 and IE8 running XAMPP osC 2.3.1 seems to freeze while having page loads. Then after page loads it seems that links and buttons are inactive for a short while.

 

Is this the fix or a fix for some other glitch:

I realize that XP & IE8 are pretty much outdated, but it's all I have for now and I'm sure there are still others out there too.

The fix for Bug #134 is for something else. It still needs to be done for IE8 compatibility though.

 

I haven't been able to reproduce your bug using IE8 on WinXP using an external server, so I think it's an XAMPP issue.

Thank you Jim for the quick reply and clarifying it.

 

I remember quiet a few people having the freezing glitch long ago.

I think it was mostly with IE9 with a few having the problem with IE8.

Something seems to ring a bell about IE's java engine being the main culprit.

 

I have upgraded to the newest XAMPP version and it still has the glitch.

I do have the glitch when viewing other peoples osC 2.3.1 sites.

 

I'm still Googling... hopefully I'll turn something up.

I remember that now. Did you try updating all of the Javascript files? There's also a posted change to the Fancybox script that might help.

Thank you for the reply again Jim.

 

I will be working through that thread making the changes along with the JQuery files.

 

Just need to get the time away from the wife and kids. :'(
