IE 8 script errors with SharePoint 2007 enterprize edition RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using ie8 as my primary browser but for last few weeks i have been getting script errors when using ie8 and Win XP

    I get messages such as Element not found on line 1945 or Object does not support this property or method on line 213

    Also when I tried to amend site navigation, but I cannot as the areas are blank, no menus get displayed.

    In Firefox I can amend the navigation, but there are other issues with MOSS and firefox

    I have attached a word doc so you can see the messages, or screen grabs.

    I have uninstalled IE8 and reinstalled, but this made no difference.

    What else should I try. I think this is a local issue on my laptop, but dont really want to reinstall the OS

  • Hello,

    IE8 works with XP in following scenario's

    • Windows XP, 32-bit versions with Service Pack 2 (SP2) or a later version 
    • Windows XP Professional, 64-bit Edition

    Please verify you are on correct service pack of XP.

    Also please check this for details about IE8: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970310

  • Hi,

    Have you installed any video plugins like Divx? If yes then I would suggest you to remove it and try again.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu

  • Hi Direbus,

    Take a look at the "Plan Browser Support" document for 2007 and ensure your version of OS/IE/SP2007 meet the criteria for Level 1 support.
