jQuery, IE6 crash on reloading page

FYI, the jQuery (1.3.2) that comes with Yii 1.03 don't work well with IE6 (and possibly IE7).

If the browser is configured "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins: Prompt",

IE will crash after a number of page reloads (e. g 3 times for my IE6).

I also noticed that sometimes the ActiveX prompt doesn't appear on every reload.

If the browser is configured "Run ActiveX Controls and Plugins: Enable",

the problem doesn't show up.

The following code is isolated from the blog demo. For testing, remember to add the jquery.js.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">


<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<meta name="language" content="en" />

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>


<body class="page">



I've seen similar behaviour at several sites for 1-2 years.

That is, if I respond to the ActiveX prompt to fast (e.g before ads finish loading),

IE will crash.

But this time the problem is more severe.

Working with the blog demo is almost impossible after the version upgrade.

I think I will switch to IE7 for daily browsing, since it's still of some value to detect the anomalies early.
