WFM using buildID 2002111108 on WinXPSP1

Reporter: could you try a more recent buildID and report back?

I'm guess the people who are seeing this dont have the java-plugin installed. Right?

Looks like this site really doesnt like browsers that dont have java enabled. 

The browser sniffing at http://stats.hitnet.net/jscript/bdetect.js
looks like this ... (slightly beautified for readability)

/*V1.1*/
if(parseInt(navigator.appVersion.substring(0,1)) < 4)
  {location.href = "";}
else if(!navigator.javaEnabled())
       {location.href = "";}
else {if (document.layers ||(!document.all && !document.layers))
        {if(!window.frames){location.href = "";}}
else if(document.all){if(!document.frames){location.href = "";}}}


So if you dont have java enabled you are out of luck, you will end up at 
location = ""

This bug may be kept open to consider whether we should be throwing an exception
if a script does location.href="".

But other than that, I guess you just have to evangelize the webmaster for
allowing in java-less browsers in.

Harshal, you are right. With java disabled I get a blank page, but with java
enabled the site works.

confirm bug and that the issue is java disabled/not installed with an infinite
direct due to the assignment of '' to location.
