View Full Version : Contractible Headers & Pop-Up blocker conflict

02-05-2006, 03:47 PM
I'm having some kind of conflict with IE pop-up blockers. The particular error is "Internet Explorer has restricted this file from showing active content that could access your computer."

All of my headers are open and this is messing with my CSS layout. Is there any way of remedying this, or is there another script that has the same effect as a contractible header?

My page is at www.unc.edu/~callie17/hirc/index2.html
if you have on your pop-up blocker, i think you should see the problem.

thanks very much.

That only happens locally as a security measure. As far as IE is concerned, javascript is ActiveX. Click on the bar and click on allow and click on yes. Once your page is live, this will not happen. You can also give your page 'the mark of the web'. That way (in most cases) it will not display the security bar locally either. Put this right after your <html> tag like so:

<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
<!-- this and above comment should be removed for live, non-demo use -->

But, navigating away from the page to another local page, or including another local page on it via a frame or an iframe can be problematical if said page does not also have 'the mark of the web' on it.
