IE 8 conflicting with internet advancement

Recommended Posts

I despise the powerhouse of Microsoft, and why it is that BSA's MyScouting page doesnt work properly with Firefox or Safari (which I prefer) is a wonder to me.

 

I get the 403 error with IE 8, and of courde, the advancement section needs to be done with IE and nothing else.

 

Anyone know a way around it or have a link for me to downgrade back to IE 7 for Vista?

 

arrrrgggg!

In Firefox, there is an addin called IETab. It renders everything in a selected tab as if it were coming from IE. I'm not sure if it might be worth a try. (unless it uses whatever version of IE happens to be installed)

It seems to work okay for me with IE8.

 

Perhaps there was something else going on that was causing the 403 error. I wouldn't rule out a PEBKAC considering how fast you jumped to the "It's MS's fault" conclusion.

Umm, no Jet. Didn't say it was MS's fault at all. Just hate not being able to use Safari or Firefox for advancement on the BSA page. Thanks for playing though.

 

Doesn't change the way I feel about Microsoft when a bug in the system can render mysocuting page useless when it comes to an upgrade in the product.

 

Don't know that the problem exists between keyboard and chair, but thanks for the lousy help on your part. At least I can count on you for helpful and cheerful service! yea! go you.

403 errors are peermissions issues, so it was likely something temporarily going wrong with user authentication system.
