Google Maps – Operation Aborted – Crashing Internet Explorer (IE)


Integrated google maps code works when using FireFox, Opera, but it errors out when using IE giving the error:

“Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site: http://…”

Here’s basically what’s happening: IE doesn’t allow changing HTML tables via DOM until they are fully rendered. And since Google Maps code does just that the solution was to move the <script> to the end of the HTML while leaving the map <div> in the place where you want the map to show.

  1. Dan –

    If you’re coding a page, that is a solution. Just move the <script> tag to the bottom of the page, just before the </body> tag.

    If you are encountering this error on a site you are visiting, just try using a different browser.

    Hope this helps.
