Format error?
Authored by: Stu on Apr 18, '01 12:20:12AM

IE5 has a bug that results in an immediate shutdown at startup when it's own "Favorites.html" file is used as the "home page" AND that "Favorites.html" contains certain HTML code. Sounds like that bug is still there in the 5.1 Carbon build. I have only experienced this once myself in OS9. No idea what causes the problem. Wonder if MS even knows?

BTW, the format is "file:///" I set my OS9 IE "Favorites.html" as the "home page" in OS X and have been using it with IE, iCab and OmniWeb for a couple weeks now with zero problems.
