Hi,

Has anyone had any problems viewing source code in the past? I am using WinXP and IE 6, when I go to view > source, quite simply nothing happens!

Any fixes out there?

Cheers, Lee.

Try clearing your temporary internet files. This worked for me.

I get it occasionally - not sure why except once it starts it carries on until I reboot.

(when it happens I save the page as html and load it into an editor)

I used to get that, just play with the settings in the security and application menus until it works. I think there is some dodgy conflict somewhere but I never bothered to check.

Cheers guys, I deleted the temp internet files and it now works fine.

Thanks again, Lee

Sometimes that alone may not work for you - if so, sometimes by closing the browser, re-opening it and THEN clearing the temp files has been working for me.

It's really annoying, isn't it?!?

I had this problem "return" some time ago now.

I had been using the "clearing out the temporary files" trick but one day this appeared to stop working.

On further investigation I found that this started round about the time that I put a shortcut to Notepad on my desktop, called "Notepad" for obvious reasons.

I renamed the shortcut to Npad and "view source" worked again.

Strange but true!

Spook.

I read about this on another forum-- some user had to go so far as to reinstall IE.
It strikes me as a very, very weird little bug.
Oh well... If you "view source" in Mozilla it comes up with some of the tags colored for you. ;)
