Blogger Problems with Internet Explorer

FYI..if you're having problems with Blogger stating "Unable to open and then aborting" apparently the problem is being caused by the Followers Gadget. Remove the Gadget from your blog and it should function normally again.

I don't usually post solutions on this blog, however, I have noticed I cannot get into MANY blogs because of this problem which included both of my blogs as well. I have tried to comment on others work and have been aborted out, very frustrating. There are also several challenge blogs that I cannot get into.

Once Blogger figures out the problem I plan on adding the Followers Gadget back on to both of my blogs.

Hope this information helps. - Kris

***MORE INFO: If you are also having problems with your Blog opening windows over and over again it apparently is also being caused by this gadget. I would save you the $$ I spent on anti-virus software just to find out that the Followers gadget was the culprit!

I remember this happening before with sitemeter. I use mozilla forefox, so I hadn't noticed the problem, but I'm glad I know about it as it will affect people visiting my blog

Thats been happening to me all day. I keep trying to leave people comments and then it says something about aborting. I feel bad because I can't leave some people comments. Thanks so much for this information.

mmmmmm, indeed. i will have to check that out and see if it doesn't solve the problem. that's been happening to me all week, also, when Blogger DOES open a page for me, half the time it opens it about 20 times and jams my computer. fun.

Thanks for the info!!

Thanks so much, couldnt figure out what the heck was going on. Question how or where do you keep the followers information so its not lost in blogland floating around some where?

Thanks SO much for that help - I've removed that gadget and it seems to have sorted it - now why can't Blogger update tell us that instead of just saying there are some issues with IE8 that they are trying to sort? Maybe they don't know?

Thanks for saving me the headache of troubleshooting! This happened to me right before I came here and I thought it was my computer.

I am not very computer term savvy, but is this why I am getting the blank page over and over when I am in a blog with the followers gadget? I do not have the gadget and I notice it does slow opening blogs down, but if this is a ongoing problem...why don't they fix it? Very frustrating! Thank you for your input.
