“Show friendly HTTP error messages”

I’d just like to volunteer something: “Show friendly HTTP error messages” was one of the worst thought-out features ever added to IE.


The few times I’ve missed it on a new development workstation have been absurdly baffling (“give me some useful error information!!!”).  The many times a user has said “it doesn’t work” but had no more details and no error message have been all the more painful to track down.


Argh!


(at least the fix is scriptable, so I’ve just added it to my standard “prefs” scripts..)

    <br>And you feel doubly stupid when you find out what the &quot;problem&quot; is, because it’s so simple.
