Javascript Error killing pull-down menu (WSS2)

  Asked By: Leonard    Date: Mar 12    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2754

This is a long shot...

I have a user, that when using IE7, and visiting a specific WSS2 site
encouters a javascript error. The error is generic and points to line
181 in the source code. When viewing the generated source code,
though, line 181, of course, is blank. But likely is something around
here:

======================

<SCRIPT> var MSOWebPartPageFormName = '_ctl12';</SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT language=javascript src="/_layouts/1033/ows.js"></SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT language=javascript src="/_layouts/1033/owsbrows.js"></SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT language=javascript src="/_layouts/1033/ie55up.js"></SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT language=javascript src="/_layouts/1033/msstring.js"></SCRIPT>
<LINK href="/_layouts/1033/styles/Menu.css" rel=stylesheet>
<STYLE type=text/css>.ms-SrvMenuUI {
BEHAVIOR: url("/_layouts/1033/Menu.htc")
}
</STYLE>

======================

The problem for this user is that one particular folder in one
particular document list disables all the pulldown menus for each
document (ie, check out/in, open with..., etc.)

It's only one folder, one list. And only for this user. The
folder/lists works fine for other folks using IE7 (including myself).

So, all that said, anyone have any potential theories? Some strange
setting in this persons IE?

We had a similar problem which was solved by backing out a patch to IE.
Microsoft later came out with a repatch that eliminated the problem. You
might look in that direction.

It turns out that he's using the exact same version of IE as I am, so
I guess that's not it. I have a hunch it's some odd security setting
in his particular browser set up.
