Web page/(1 item remaining) waiting for http://

This web page has a problem in IE7, but works find in Firefox:
http://www.CarrieKirkland.com

In IE7 this page works fine, but the spinning blue circle in the IE7 tab never stops spinning and in the status bar at the bottom of the IE7 window, this error message never goes away: (1 item remaining) Waiting for http://www.carriekirkland.com

In Firefox, this page works perfectly and does not have this problem.

Any ideas?

Thank you. That's interesting, that IE6 doesn't have the problem.

What's wrong when viewing the web page in IE7?

I am using Firefox and someone already tested in IE6 and the website looks fine. IE7 is known to have problems, but if there is a way to fix it yourself, that would be nice.

I would look at the method of displaying Flash in the web page or try to reduce or eliminate the use of Flash. Try removing just the flash code temporarily to see if your web page loads without any problems.

Also look at your DOCTYPE line to see if it is correct. You may need to change or remove that line. And try to get the table attributes into your external CSS file. You may need to edit the stylesheet line that mentions media. Try removing that line temporarily to see if your web page loads. I remember having a similar problem a while ago with one of my client's websites.

<link href="css/main.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all">

I received the error message using IE 7, but when I did a refresh the message went away. It also did not stay if I went to another page and then clicked the Back button. Not sure what it is trying load on the first pass.

I am suspicious of CSS or Javascript in these cases. Because I do not use IE7, I cannot see exactly what you are seeing. If the entire web page looks okay and the page appears to have loaded, perhaps your Javascript is the problem. It is not something that would be visible, but it would be loaded. And your Javascript appears to be related to the IE browser.

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