message 1: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 175 comments I use microsoft internet explorer 7 and have started to get an object error pop up when I read reviews, view book blurb etc.


message 2: by Auntee (new)

Auntee | 46 comments Me too! What does that mean? It says "Type error: Object doesn't support this property or method"


message 3: by KarenH (new)

KarenH | 1 comments Adrienne & Auntee,
Hi. Does everything else seem to be working properly? You can still read reviews, etc.? If you just want to do away with the annoying message, in your browser:
Click on Tools
Click on Internet Options
At the top, select the Advanced tab.
Click to clear the check next to display a notification about every script error
Click OK

That should at least get rid of the message. Hope it helps.

Amanda J (amandasbooks) | 172 comments I recently got that error as well. I was looking at the new review graph on Otis' page when it happened.

Thanks KarenH. Yeah, everything else is okay. I just have to click 'OK' on the message and it disappears. Just a latest bug from GR. Doesn't seem to be happening on any other site I visit.

It means that either there's a error in a script running in the webpage that's open or that your browser failed to run the script correctly. There's a lot of things which could cause either one to happen, unfortunately. Here's some information from Microsoft about troubleshooting this in IE: How to troubleshoot script errors in Internet Explorer on Windows-based computers.

I think it's these mcdonalds ads. Investigating.


message 9: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 234 comments OMG, Otis you're right! I just notice that it happens every time that ad is there. *ROFL*


message 10: by Auntee (new)

Auntee | 46 comments It seems to pop up most for me whenever I check out someone's reviews. Really weird.


message 11: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 175 comments Same here Auntee:( do you get it when looking at book descriptions?

Hmm, I haven't noticed that--I'll have to pay attention. For me, I don't think it's directly connected to the McDonald's ad. So far I've noticed it when I click on a review. I'll try to keep track when it happens...maybe there's a common denominator.


message 13: by Kathrynn (new)

Kathrynn | 509 comments I got an error message when I previewed a group comment prior to posting. Then, the comment was gone and had to retype it. :-(


message 14: by Auntee (new)

Auntee | 46 comments So far it's still happening for me but only when I click on reviews or comments linked to reviews.


message 15: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 234 comments I think it's those active ads, it just happened to me with a Mr. Dash!LOL
Like Auntee mentioned, it only seems to happen when i look at reviews or comments linked to them.


message 16: by Melanie♥ (new)

Melanie♥ (MeliaAnn) | 343 comments I am getting an "object error" message, too.
Have not been able to connect it to anything specific, though. Will try to pay more attention.

Is anyone getting this message using any browser other than Internet Explorer?


message 18: by Melanie♥ (new)

Melanie♥ (MeliaAnn) | 343 comments I am using IE7.


message 19: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 234 comments Ok now am getting this error when am looking at certain books?

I'm using IE and the error appeared when i looked at this two books. UntamedSurrender, though i cannot recall which format it was.


message 20: by Melanie♥ (new)

Melanie♥ (MeliaAnn) | 343 comments I have been on the site a lot today and that error message box has been a frequent site.


message 21: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 234 comments Yes, i just noticed it's happening pretty frequently on many other books.


message 22: by Julie (new)

Julie (readerjules) | 437 comments I get it every time I look at a book. It doesn't matter which one.

Sheila  | 575 comments Ditto. Glad to see it's not just my computer. :o)


message 28: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 175 comments Rivka is there anything we can do to stop this? quite frankly it's becoming very irritating!

It WAS fixed, but it's clearly back. I've passed it along.

It does seem to be exclusive to IE, so there's always the option of Firefox! ;)


message 30: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 175 comments Thanks for getting back so quickly Rivka, will see what happens with the fix and keep firefox in mind:)

Not from my work computer there's not ;-(


message 32: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne | 175 comments I've opted for firefox, OEs all gone:) but my updates page no longer automatically updates I have to keep going to a different page then come back. Anyone know how to overcome this?


message 33: by Petra Eggs (new)

Petra Eggs (PetraX) | 5918 comments I'm not getting them on Chrome but I am on IE and GB


message 34: by Mary JL (new)

Mary JL (MaryJL) | 86 comments I am still getting object error--have for the past few days.

However, IE is the only option available for me at this time.


message 35: by Jackie (new)

Jackie (TheNightOwl) | 218 comments Same here and it's really getting annoying.


message 36: by Melanie♥ (new)

Melanie♥ (MeliaAnn) | 343 comments Ditto.

I believe it's connected to some of the ads, and the last I heard it was being worked on. Sorry, guys!


message 38: by Melanie♥ (new)

Melanie♥ (MeliaAnn) | 343 comments If they are working on it, we are in good hands. Thanks!


message 39: by MissJessie (new)

MissJessie | 1712 comments I have noticed that some of the video-clip ads are taking Forever to load, or don't at all until you hit refresh.


message 40: by Michael (new)

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) THe JS alert should be resolved.


message 41: by Michael (new)

Michael Economy (michaeleconomy) It was due to the new graph which is visible only in firefox/chrome/opera/safari.


message 42: by Rossy (new)

Rossy (naughtybookjunkie) | 234 comments Thanks Michael!
