IE8 and IE9 freezes (DW preview browser)



7:59 pm on Feb 10, 2012 (gmt 0)


I have tried to find a solution, but unsuccessful.
For almost a week, The Interner explorer v8 and v9 freezes for about 30 seconds while I preview my website using dreamweaver.
I tested the v9 on 32 and 64bit and got the same problem.
I have also tested with Fireox, Chrome and Safari, and it is ok with them ?

From what I can understand it seems related to the java script downloading from the web. My website contains java script (AdSense, +1 and Analytics). If I remove all the java script links, it loads fine.

What I do not understand is the cause? Any clue ?

Thanks for your time!

Sometimes the Google servers are very slow to respond - the delay you are noticing may be nothing more than that.

Thanks, It is quite possible because if I remove all scripts. It loads fast. It was not like that before.
I also noticed something interesting. The Google Chrome will not freeze (like IE), BUT I can see something running as there is an icon (loop) top left like an hourglass running for a bout 15-15 seconds. So the problem is there too but won't freeze like IE.
To be continued!

I think I find the problem ... Google Plus One!
I knew it was something related to an external script.
I removed the javascript lines and the code to display the plusone icon and then IE loads normal as well as the other browsers.
