One reason for Serial Number Error with IE6
« on: April 08, 2004, 09:14:36 PM »
I have discovered one reason I get Serial Number Error when viewing some sites with IE6.
No matter what I enter into the address bar if there is not a www. as the first part of the address IE6 adds www. to the first part of the address.  Therefore a live page that was setup without the www. as part of the address will display Serial Number Error.  Mozilla does not have this problem.

That's interesting. I've not come across that before - can you give an example?

It happened several times on my other machine.  It may have had something to do with Ďauto completeí in IE.  I enabled auto complete, disabled auto complete, cleaned IE several times.  Right now it is not a problem.  I donít normally use that machine for web browsing.  I will pay more attention if I see Serial Number Error on that machine.  When it was happening it was very frustrating.
It would not have mattered except for the serial number being tied to the web address.

I've never had that problem myself but I think you're correct - it does sound like a history/auto complete problem.

I'm away now for a couple of days so apologies if queries don't get answered until I get back.
