Good day to all,
And thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

I am running Windows XP.
I also have McAfee Security Center running.
And I usually use Firefox as my browser
but in this case I have the same problem
in Firefox, Opera and IE.

The problem I am having is
accessing a couple of web pages
on a website that I normally use all the time
and have used without a problem
for the past 6 years.

I use the website for our local library
to browse the catalog
and request books and other media
and to log into "my patron record"
to renew materials I have checked out.

About a week ago I became unable to
view the catalog search page or to log in.
I can access and view
all other pages on the local library website
and seemingly all other websites
and pages I have visited since.
Just these two pages seem to be the problem.

I tried to access these pages through
Firefox and Opera and IE
and I cannot access or view them
with any of the browsers I have
so it seems to be a system wide problem,
not a browser setting??

I contacted the library
thinking something had changed with them
but no, they just asked me if I have java enabled.
And I checked and indeed I do.
All their computers at the library
and other users I know
aren't having the same problem.

And I find these types of error messages
in my JavaScript Console in Firefox and
assume they are some how connected to my problem.

Error: Expected color but found '"#4f5d9a"'. Error in parsing value for property 'background-color'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://suncat.co.sarasota.fl.us/Include/Css/Site.css
Line: 34

Error: Expected color but found '"#FFFFFF"'. Error in parsing value for property 'color'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://suncat.co.sarasota.fl.us/Include/Css/Site.css
Line: 35

Error: Expected color but found '"#808080"'. Error in parsing value for property 'background-color'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://suncat.co.sarasota.fl.us/Include/Css/Site.css
Line: 45

Error: Unknown property 'align'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/includes/css.css
Line: 110

Error: Error in parsing value for property 'max-width'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/
Line: 0

There are many of these error messages,
and as you can see
not just for the library website
but for others as well.
But I only have trouble accessing and viewing
those two pages
the library catalog listings search page
and the patron log in page.
And I need to access them on a weekly basis.

I have Windows set up to do automatic updates
and I think the problem may have started right after
downloading and installing a recent update,
but I don't know if the two are related.

I also ran Ad-Aware and Spybot Search
around the same time as the problem started
and wonder if that could be related
to the start of this problem.

McAfee updates regularly as well
and might be having some effect
I am unaware of.

Other than that my system
has been unchanged.

Thank you again for any guidance, advice or help
anyone can provide.

Hello, dfirenze:

Try updating JAVA to see if that helps.

Updating Java:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.
  • Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )

    It should have next icon next to it: Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Then Download and install the newest version from here:http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
Let us know.
JC

Hi,
Thanks for your suggestion.
I did delete and update Java.
I was running Java update 6
and now I am at update 8.
I verified I am now using the latest version,
Went to the library site
and no change.
Still cannot access and view those pages.
What's next?
Thanks again.

just some thoughts, what firewall do you have? did you change any settings, or upgrade, around the time problems started. have you recently installed any new anti-spyware apps - check settings if you have, or temporarily disable for a few minutes just to check those sites. have you set your browser(s) to accept cookies, some sites require this? has your isp installed any updates, junk(!) that may have changed some settings?

regards

What version of Internet Explorer are you using?

You might want to turn off the popup blocker in Internet Explorer jsust to see if you can get to the sites and if you can then turn off the same in your other browsers.

>just some thoughts,

Thanks I appreciate any and all help.


>what firewall do you have?

McAfee

>did you change any settings, or upgrade, around the time problems started.

Yes - there was an automatic McAfee update that happened
along with a Windows XP update
and those are the only things I am aware of that happened
around the time of the problem starting.
I did not change any settings that I know of.

I have tried turning McAfee off to see
if that corrects the problem
but it does not.

I was wondering if there is some conflict between McAfee and Windows
security/firewall settings
How to check??

>have you recently installed any new anti-spyware apps -
check settings if you have,
or temporarily disable for a few minutes just to check those sites.

I run ad aware and spybot weekly or so
but I don't know what settings in there would
be effecting this one website

>have you set your browser(s) to accept cookies,
some sites require this?

Yes

> has your isp installed any updates, junk(!) that may have changed some settings?

I don't know.
I am in contact with my ISP to see if the problem could be with them.

Thanks.

Mostly I use Firefox version 1.5.0.6
then Opera version 8
and then only when something doesn't work IE version 6.029

I tired turning them off and I still cannot display those pages.

Thank you.

Hi folks,

I contacted my ISP to see if they had any info or insight for me
and they told me to contact the library webmaster because

"government sites have an issue of blocking your IP range."

I have sent off another email to the library webmaster
this time asking if they are blocking my IP.

But what does this mean?
Why would the public library block my IP.

Thanks for any info you can offer.

Have you attempted to access the library account from a different computer? If that doesn't work, try opening a new account.

hi, dfirenze,

i think if the library computer has been under attack they may have blocked a range of ip's they think are malicious! and may have inadvertantly picked a range that includes your ip.

are you still having trouble with other web sites? if so try buddy215's suggestion of using another computer for access to library and anyother sites, if you can access on another computer and the library hasn't put a block on your ip, then at least you know the fault is definately with your computer and further investigation is required.

does the macafee package you have include a firewall? if so ensure that the windows firewall is switched off.

good luck

Yes I can access the library account from other computers.
The account seems to be fine.
I can access interlibrary loan from my own computer
using my local library patron account.


>are you still having trouble with other web sites?

No trouble with any other websites.


>does the macafee package you have include a firewall?

Yes it does.

>if so ensure that the windows firewall is switched off.

I have done this.
But sometimes the McAfee firewall notifies me that it is turned off
and I find that the Windows firewall is turned on.
I would love to permanently stop Windows from doing this sort of thing.
Is there a way to permanently disable Windows security?

In addition the library webmaster has contacted me and
has asked for detailed info of the problem.

Tech support at my ISP has recontacted me
and is saying that they are talking to their engineers
because they think it is not something on my computer
that I can fix???

I will continue to post here
as I get more info.

Thank you all for your input, ideas and help.

By the way, not confuse this with your main issue here of not being able to access your site properly, but...

I also get several errors in my JavaScript Console similar to the one pasted below.(and you pasted in your earlier post)

sample of mine -
Error: Error in parsing value for property 'cursor'. Declaration dropped.
Source File: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/sty...mages/css_7.css
Line: 1370

I get these on a lot of the pages that I visit. I would assume that this is something that is normal with the frequency that these are coming in at. Not a web designer, but I believe that it just telling you that there is something in the code that caused an issue with Firefox/Javascript. Someone else may be able to explain it better than me.

Okay, keep us posted. Good-luck. :thumbsup:
