Internet Explorer and Blogger

by Nicole on June 19, 2009

Blogger has been having some issues with Internet Explorer in the past month and many of you have emailed me with your frustration at not being able to open my blog (and other blogs) at times. We were first told it had to do with the followers widget but I don’t even have that on my blog. I often get the error message (operation aborted) when I access other blogs off their feed in my google reader.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a solution to the problem though hitting the “back” button after getting the error message often corrects the issue for me. A more practical solution is to download and use Firefox as your default browser. I am definitely an IE girl but in the past month have been using Firefox (because of the issues with IE) and am thrilled with it. I don’t get the error messages and am impressed with its features. Best of all? It’s FREE to download.

I had these same issues with IE and haven't had a problem yet with FireFox. I suggest everyone switch because it's so not worth the hassle trying to keep IE.

I hate IE and go "grrrr" when a site makes me use it for downloads/access. Firefox is cool though my husband says it rots, lol. He's a diehard safari fan, which is also great and I've never had issues with it either.

I was wondering what was up. I thought it was just something you were doing, but then a whole bunch of blogs weren't working for me. I use IE on my pc, but I also have a mac and it wasn't working there either. I'm so glad to see whatever problems were going on seems to be fixed now. I couldn't comment or enter contests or anything. It was making me crazy!
