Internet Explorer Weirdness

Some of you usuing Internet Explorer might come across some problems browsing this site, or you might not. Actually, I shouldn’t say problems, “minor defects” is more appropriate. Sometimes, when loading this site under IE, the navigation menu, everything from the “Search” on down, is pushed all the way to the bottom of the page. So, if you’re at the very top of the page, you probably won’t even see the menu until you scroll about halfway down.

I thought I had the issue tracked down at one point, but that’s obviously not true. Previously, I had a list showing the geographical locations of the last 5 visitors. The nav menu would go all the way to the bottom of the page each time I loaded in IE. I removed the recent visitors list from the page, cleared IE’s cache and refreshed. The nav menu looked normal, right up top where it should be.

Now, I can’t even get the menu to load at the bottom every time. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won’t. For example, I’m at the office right now and the menu looks fine on my PC in IE. If I move to another PC and load in IE, the menu will be at the bottom. All the PC’s here have IE 6.0 w/ SP2.

I can’t for the life of me figure this out, and it makes me very sad to say that. I’m gonna check it out while I’m here @ work so I can at least have a PC that the problem occurs on almost every time the page is loaded. If anyone’s got any suggestions, please let me know.

UPDATE: Well, maybe this isn’t linked at some of the sites mentioned. I have noticed that TrackBacks on some sites aren’t working properly, Basil has all the dirt on what’s up with that. Hopefully TypePad and HaloScan get that fixed up soon, it’s sorta annoying.


Well, now what?
