 9:55 am on Jun 26, 2010 (gmt 0)


When I am browsing my site on IE it is not showing properties, like type, size, created, modified etc for that pages (on browser right click -> properties).

Please guide me if you get my problem.

Thank you

Hi there shaid,

you can sometimes get problems with IE if the "Temporary Internet Files" are full.

To clear the folder..

  1. Click "Tools".
  2. Click "Internet Options".
  3. Under "Temporary Internet Files" click "Delete Files".
  4. Click "OK".
  5. Click "OK".

Hi birdbrain

Thanks for your reply.

Temporary files deleted but still problem persist.

To clear my problem suppose you are browsing webmasterworld.com and then mouse right click on this window and then click properties you will see the current page information with page size, created date, modified etc... but in my case it is showing
Not Available

Not getting where the problem may be here some html issue...

Presumably your page does display OK in IE? Is it a standard text/html page? All other sites appear to be OK in this respect? Do other browsers (Firefox, Opera, etc.) display the page properties OK?

Thanks for your reply.

display in both IE and FireFox ok.

Yes in Firefox properties ok

In IE it is undefined/not available

you can view it from here

[scienceniche.com...] here its given properties

But from here all inner pages like
[scienceniche.com...] not giving properties in IE. is it browse crashing or any html error?

Same for me on IE.

I don't know, but may be it's something to do with the response headers being sent back from the server. On the page that fails (displaying "Not Available" for Type, Size, Created and Modified properties) you are trying hard not to cache the page by sending these additional headers...

Expires:Thu, 19 Nov 1981 08:52:00 GMT
Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0
Set-Cookie: PHPSESSID=e82e3196dddb452c2f0dcc7c020be561; path=/

This is a guess however.

Hello Penders

not get you.
Excuse me, How do you get this additional headers information?

Can you please give me some more info...

Various browser plugins (eg. "Live HTTP headers" for Firefox) or various websites have tools that will display this information (although it's not too tricky to write your own in PHP for instance).

These are the response headers sent from your web server (from a page on your website) before the main body of the HTML page. They are controllable using whatever server-side scripting language you are using to create your website. When you set cookies you are setting a response header (ie. "Set-Cookie: " - see above).

To be honest, I'm not sure why these particular headers would cause a problem with IE (if indeed they are)? May be if the headers are malformed somehow? Like I say, I'm guessing.

Hello Boss

I made it :D

This clue works for me. Here it was session problem which makes this particular header.

Thank you Penders
