When looknig at ameritrades website, all kinds of information about the page
loads that shouldnt.  sometimes tables are displayed twice, or things dont load
at all

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. log into ameritrade
2. click account status

Actual Results:  items dont appear, source code is shown, serveral issues with
layout.  refreshing sometimes fixes a few of these but not all

Expected Results:  the page should of displayed with out issues

I relize not everyone has an ameritrade account, so i will try to make a
testcase and provide all the information i have, also please let me know what
other information you need.

Is the full page displayed as source ?
Or only a frame ?

If full page or frame (load this frame in a new single window) and type this in
the URL bar :

What do you get ?

sometimes i get an entire frame as source, others it is some source and some of
what should be displayed.

looking at it today i got the "stock order entry" frame as the following


//function assigns the symbol value of the order ticket form to the quote form
//and if the value of the form is not null then it changes the form action to
the //results page. This was done this way so if someone as javascript turned
off they will // go to the normal get a quote page function do_Submit_Quotes() {
document.quoteForm.symbol.value = document.ADVANCEDORDER.symbol.value; if
(document.quoteForm.symbol.value.length > 0) {
document.quoteForm.submit(); } else return false; } var popup; function
popbrowser(URL) { var popup; if (popup != null && !popup.closed) {
popup.close(); },"offsite","WIDTH=700,HEIGHT=350,resizable=1,scrollbars=1,status=1,toolbar=1");
} function pophelpcenter(URL) { var help_center; if (help_center != null &&
!help_center.closed) { help_center.close(); } help_center =
(URL,'HelpCenter','width=520,height=520,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes'); } var
message_window; function popmessage(URL) { //Message Popup if (message_window !=
null && !message_window.closed) { message_w


Opening this frame in a new window, and it displayed correctly.  
typing "javascript:alert(document.contentType)" gives me a popup box with Text\HTML

Other problems that some times occur are that text doesnt look like it was
formatted like the rest of the page (css issue?), and sometimes images or text
appear twice or in the wrong frame, other times not at all.

This also occurs on windows 2000

Can you save the page, remove all personal informations and attach it to this bug ?
(if you can reproduce it with the source)

CC because he has an account there (see bug 99511)

Here is one of the frames from the site's page.  I have removed all the links,
and information about my account.  There are other frames with similar problems
but have more personal information i will have to remove.  

Reloading corrects most of the display problems most of the time but not always.
 Also see this on 2002062804

One Attachment is what i see, and the other is what it should look like, for
some reason after saving these pages the "shadow" under the frame was enlarged,
i didnt see this when i am looking at the real site.  (I think this is because
of a spacer.gif that i did not download, and having that image in the table
would make it the correct size)

I am also including the css file

You can see that "welcome message" table is displayed twice, and there are bits
of source code all over the page.  Reloading the file i saved locally doesnt fix
the problem

I haven't seen this in a while, Im using the nightlies (currentally 
200291110), i dont know if this is a duplicate of another bug, and it was 
fixed, or if ameritrade changed the coding on the website, either way its 
fixed.  Marking Fixed due to other checkin or this was evangelism...
