This is a bizarre question, but has anybody recently done anything to the template/sharedcode that would limit the number of links on a page in IE but not in other browsers?
Today we realized that our A-to-Z grad areas of study page, one of our biggest & most-viewed pages, in IE is slow and pops up a vague error message: "Stop running this script? A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive. [Yes] [No]". If you say Yes to stop it, the page seems complete except the footer feedback thing has a drop-down instead of stars.
This is the page: http://www.unl.edu/gradstudies/prospect ... atoz.shtml
. It seems fine in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera (once you get past the Opera-must-be-mobile bug). We haven't come across any other pages that have this problem.
I've spent hours trying different things. If I take it out of the template, the page loads fine & fast in IE. In the template, if I remove the part that creates all the "# A B C ... X Y Z" shortcut link lines, the page is still a little slow in IE but it loads without the script error popup. If I put in just the first 4 (# A B C) it works, but then it errors if I go one letter more. It seems like IE is just giving up because I've got too many links. 24x24 alpha shortcuts + hundreds of links to grad programs does turn into a huge number of links for just one page, but we've had it like this for quite a while and we've never run into this problem before.
Got any ideas? Or a tool that could diagnose this alleged script problem?
