    Default PLEASE HELP Unknown behavior with Netscape 4.05 PA

    Hi,<BR><BR>The scenario:<BR>User logs in the login page, get&#039s sent to a scripting page which just checks the user&#039s identity, places a session variable, then without even seeing that page he sees his profile. (the response.redirect file that verification page send you to if OKayed). that page opens a pop-up window.<BR><BR>The symptoms:<BR>In IE and Netscape 6 the whole process takes not even a second. <BR>In Netscape 4.05 Windows version, after login, you are left dangling for about 30-50 seconds before it logs you in and all is okay. But I have discovered that if just after login, I DON&#039T wait, and maximize another program&#039s window on the taskbar, THE PAGE LOADS!!!! Why does it do this???? It doesn&#039t make sense that say "answering an ICQ message" will make a page load faster. <BR>In Netscape 4.05/Linux it just won&#039t even load ever.<BR><BR>THE FACTS:<BR>Hardware: running AMD ATHLON 700, 256MB RAM, 7200RPM hard drive<BR>DB: sql Server 7.0<BR>OS: Windows 2000 (therefore IIS 5.0)<BR><BR>Since this is a development page, I&#039m running it off my own Cable modem line. but viewing from your own computer shouldn&#039t create this problem anyways right???<BR><BR>PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME.<BR><BR>I am wondering if it&#039s the verification page that&#039s buggy (I have removed it and just logged in to a simple helloworld.asp file and there was no lag). <BR><BR>Here&#039s my code for the verification script:<BR><BR>&#060;%@ Language=VBScript %&#062;<BR>&#060;% option explicit <BR><BR>dim theLogin, thePassword, liveDSN, RSV, RS, sqlContacts, status<BR>dim sqlTest, Con, result, sqlOnlineStatus, sqlString, theUser, thePswd<BR><BR>&#039Get the form data passed from the client<BR>theLogin = TRIM(Request ("username") )<BR>thePassword = TRIM(Request ("password") )<BR><BR>&#039open a connection to the database<BR>Set Con = Server.CreateObject( "ADODB.Connection" )<BR>liveDSN = "DSN=theProject;uid=XXXX;password=XXXX"<BR>Con.ope n liveDSN<BR><BR>&#039function to check up on the login<BR>FUNCTION validateLogin( theUser, thePswd )<BR>sqlTest = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE login = &#039" & theUser & "&#039 "<BR>Set RS = Con.Execute(sqlTest)<BR> IF RS.EOF THEN<BR> validateLogin = 1<BR> ELSE<BR> IF RS("password") &#060;&#062; thePswd THEN<BR> validateLogin = 2<BR> ELSE<BR> validateLogin = 0<BR> END IF<BR> END IF<BR>END FUNCTION<BR><BR>result = validateLogin( theLogin, thePassword )<BR><BR>IF theLogin = "" OR thePassword = "" THEN<BR> Response.Redirect "error100.asp"<BR>ELSEIF result = 1 THEN<BR> Response.Redirect "error101.asp"<BR>ELSEIF result = 2 THEN<BR> Response.Redirect "error101.asp"<BR>ELSE<BR><BR>&#039the user is valid, we now set his online status to ONLINE, 1.<BR>sqlOnlinestatus = "UPDATE users SET onlinestatus = 1 WHERE login = &#039" & theLogin & "&#039 "<BR>Set RSV = Con.Execute(sqlOnlinestatus)<BR><BR>sqlString = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE login &#060;&#062; &#039" & theLogin & "&#039 "<BR>Set RS = Con.Execute(sqlString)<BR><BR>&#039We assign session variables to maintain the login name throughout the session.<BR>&#039We first must clean the user&#039s session variables in case another person uses the computer of the user<BR>&#039and attempts to login, this is a double precaution, in case he forgot to logout.<BR>Session("login") = theLogin<BR>Session("theContacts") = RS("contacts")<BR>Response.Redirect "profile.asp"<BR><BR>END IF<BR>%&#062;

    I think the real problem comes from the AMD ATHLON processor, you really should thinking about getting some Intel here<BR><BR><BR>Esti-d&#039calice !

    Default Please, no AMD vs. Intel debate. My question plea

    Now how the heck would ATHLON be the cause of that? Give me some facts in my face please. It&#039s not a K6. Athlon&#039s are still pretty darn good chips. <BR><BR>Just give me facts to believe that, and not just "oh, it&#039s an AMD" thing. I don&#039t want to start on the Intel-AMD debate. Can anything else be the problem. <BR><BR>-Vadim

    Default Have you tried a netscape newsgroup or msg. board.

    ... just a thought that some folks there might know better than we.

    That was the most stupid reply I&#039ve ever read. Of course it&#039s not a processor issue (hell, I run a K6-2 at home and netscape runs fine)<BR><BR>Can you reproduce this error on another machine? Could be a buggy install. Then again it could be a rendering bug in 4.05, which would explain why they knocked out half a dozen 4.0x releases....<BR><BR>Dunc
