Lack of MSIE 6.0 support impeding mapping progress

Posted by daveemtb on 26 June 2009 in English (English)

Sigh, my work IT system is still stuck on MSIE 6, and isn't likely to move on any time soon, so now that the home page doesn't work with such an awful browser, I can't access any noname map (let alone an up to date one!) to plan my route home to pick up missing streets any more. :(

IE6 should be working again now.

Yes, it is now working. Thanks for such a swift resolution.

My work is also stuck on MSIE 6

Grand, it now works :)

Strangely, though, the noname layer isn't working (shows up blank white) so I still have the same problem. Not sure what's causing that though.

There's always Portable Firefox, so you can run it off a flash drive rather than having to install it.
I'm not sure if it'd comply with your IT departments usage policy, but here it is:

Heh, fat chance! Flash drives don't even work, let alone being able to run exe files from them! Thanks for the suggestion though.
