A few minutes ago I was reading a hub in my feed. Internet explorer poped up with" IE prevented cross-site scripting on this page".
I do not know what this is or what HP was trying to do. Can anyone explain? thanks
I received the warning when reading "lizstevens" new article on sewing machines.
Here is a bit more about cross-site scripting.

It could have been an ad.
Are you still receiving the same error when you visit that page using Internet Explorer 8?
Internet Explorer 8 is an older browser and Microsoft does not support Windows XP in any later version of the browser, so you may want to try another browser like Firefox or Chrome in order to better protect your computer from malware, phishings, etc. as IE8 has many vulnerabilities.
If you still get the error, can you take a screenshot and share it?
That way we can determine if it is an ad.
It seems fine when I use Google chrome. I'm reluctant to switch to IE just to see what happens
When I used IE a bar popped up at the top with the warning.
If you need me to I'll risk it but it's fine with Google Chrome.
Thanks for your prompt response.

For the last several days if I wish to share a good hub from a HP author with my followers, it won't do it for some reason. Is anyone else having this problem?

All day today (9/24), I've been editing a hub, and every time I click Preview I get a blank Preview box with no text or images. My hub is http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3381417 . I use Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows XP.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!
