The growth and power of mobile devices

The following is the recent statistics of my agriculture based website http://market.grassfield.org

It is amazing to see, Internet Explorer is in the fourth place, and the third place goes to mobile browsers.

The following graph shows the split up of the mobile devices.

The Data Area Passed to the System Call is Too Small


I got the following error in Firefox, while opening a new window with specified parameters, “the data area passed to the system call is too small”. there is some limitation in the length of the query string that is being passed (GET) request. automatically it gets screwed and the error is simply written in the browser. with Internet Explorer, we cant figure-out the error, since its error message is not at all helpful!!!

AJAX and window.location.href

see there is a html line like this
<a href=”javascript:void(0);” onClick=”javascript:deleteGroup();”>Delete</a>
the delete group function is written as

function deleteGroup()
{
selectAll(null);
if (groupNames==”” || groupNames==”,”)
{
alert (“No Groups selected”);
return;
}
var a = confirm(“Are you sure you want to delete the selected groups? This change is permanent and this cannot be recovered!”);

if(a)
{
alert(groupNames);
window.location.href=”/final/admin/Egconfiggroupp.jsp?deleteGroups=”+groupNames+”&mode=delete”;
return;
}
}

It is working fine in Firefox but not in IE. Actually the control has been transferred to configgroupp.jsp and what it need to do, has been done. but it is not getting reflected in UI. it is static 😦 but when you add ” window.event.returnValue=false;” after window.location.href it is workign fine.

function deleteGroup()
{
selectAll(null);
if (groupNames==”” || groupNames==”,”)
{
alert (“No Groups selected”);
return;
}
var a = confirm(“Are you sure you want to delete the selected groups? This change is permanent and this cannot be recovered!”);

if(a)
{
alert(groupNames);
window.location.href=”/final/admin/Egconfiggroupp.jsp?deleteGroups=”+groupNames+”&mode=delete”;
window.event.returnValue=false ;
return;
}
}

What MS site says is, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/190244/en-us ,
The onclick event is overwritten by href tag etc etc….. oops. oh MS associates, why your browser keep on bugging me, while firefox is working fine?

Firefox and Ajax: Permission denied to call method XMLHttpRequest.open


Hi,
I was trying to load an xml document from remote server using a html file saved in my hdd. it was working fine in IE, but not with firefox. Firefox says the permission is denied! later i found that Firefox dont allow remote connections to be opened by a local file. http:// or similar kind of things is compulsary to access remote content. Security!
