Helllo,
I have a browser problm with my website. On some pages of the site javascript works ok (Chrome and Firefox) but doesn't load on IE (XP). I'm talking about the scroll of listings. If you check with Firefox, you will see how it's suppose to work. Filters on the left and map on the right are fixed and are full page widith. IE8 (Windows 7) even crash and can't load the site at all! Is the problem in my site or in IE?
I'm desperate! My coder said that can't fix it and now i'm stuck with poor user experience. Here is an example page: http://toppages.co.uk/city/london/c-solicitors

P.S. : I'm not a coder so if some of you can fix the problem i'm happy to pay for the fix or atleast give me some directions so i can pass the info to my coder.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Which version of Internet Explorer has the problem? I guess it's an older version since you mentioned Windows XP.

Older versions of IE have many incompatibility issues. You really have to be a bit of an expert in the details of JavaScript, HTML, CSS and which version of IE supports what to really find out how to fix it. If you're not a programmer yourself, I think the best way to solve this is to find somebody in your neighbourhood who can debug and fix this for you.

Welcome to the Ranch.

Did you try with IE9+? It that works, then it's just a compatibility issue for IE8.

Add the line inside the html head should fix this

As money is being offered, I have moved this to the Jobs Offered forum.

But, to me, the solution is to simply not claim to support IE8 and tell anyone that uses the site to use a browser that is supported. There is no valid reason for anyone to be using Windows XP and IE8 in 2014. (This assumes, of course, that the site works fine on all modern browsers, including IE11).

Hi Bear Bibeault ,
IE 8 crashes on Windows 7 not on XP. I made some research and found that maybe 5% - 6% of all web users are still using IE8.....So that is important in my case.
 
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
