Twitter is broken in IE8 (last 24 hours)


#1

Something broke in Twitter when viewing it in IE8 (soem time in the last 24 hours).

Basically you can no longer view a persons profile via their URL eg - http://twitter.com/deancollins

Error says Javascript problem

Is there nobody in Twitter that uses Internet explorer?

for the lst 24 hours you cant view a persons profile when logged in, basically unless you log out it is impossible to view profiles eg http://twitter.com/deancollins using internet explorer.

also i noticed the “send direct message” button on email is also broken so i’m assumign its the same Java problem.

will this get fixed or should i only use twitter clients instead of a browser?

Thanks for the report.

Hi, I’m from chile and I have the same problem (sorry for my english)

I am using IE8 but works fine in Chrome


#7

Thank you for the additional reports!


#8

Any recommendations for direct URL’s in the meantime?


#9

Resolved!! Thanks


#10

I’m still getting the same result here, basically can view user profiles when logged out but once you log in you cant see a users profile.

interestingly i did have a fluke yesterday evening where it started working but couldn’t recreate access a second time.


#11

BTW if you see a usersname within twitter then click on it from the sidepanel you can view their profile as the url fine.

close that browser and enter the url again…it fails.

I agree It works well in chrome and firefox but the report in ie8 is good to know. There’s also been a report of "force close "in mobile.twitter ever since the new android system update 3 days. A lot of changes.


#16

thanks for letting me search more than 2 hours for a solution twitter.com!! sigh…

Repair IE8 (IE7) and IE9
This script works for IE9 as well. In particular it seems to fix the problem that after a successful installation the IE launch “blinks away” without an error message. I suggest to also completely reset IE at Internet Options, advanced, in this case after running the script.

works now…


#17

edit: false alarm… still broken.
damned. can somebody help me?


#18

This needs to be resolved, no one in IE can follow on Twitter! …is anyone working on this!?!


#19

I’ve been having this exact problem for the past few days with IE9.

SCRIPT16389: Unspecified error.
twitter.com, line 1 character 1

Also, I’m not sure what happened but it didn’t look like I was able to submit this report in IE9 either. I had to use Firefox.

Would like to be able to view profiles guys. It’s kind of an important thing.
