    All, I have an iFrame that is querying an outside URL. This URL has a
    query string at the end of it.

    For example: http://www.bob.com/bob.aspx?blahblahblah

    Anyway, when using firefox or opera, everything works fine.

    But if I'm using IE (6 or 7) or Windows Safari, the query string does
    not take. It's almost as if the query string is stripped off before
    accessing the 3rd party site.

    However, I can paste the URL with the query string directly into the
    IE browser address bar and it works fine.

    Any thoughts?

    thanks in advance,
    Jeremy

    No, no javascript involved. The query string, after the question mark,
    is an encrypted query string which looks like this:

    fiJ2uLXpQOu1XiBvBlhyPMZlM8RMIHdPeZX5jwVOIoY8L1PeC3ZBSMIRpTkEol391hQqB7MNnCEoZ01USXHb1d0J11rsbH7yTfWRgjHHgXI=

    I've even tried it without the "=" at the end or changing it to the
    hex %3d, but that didn't work either.

    Again, this works in Firefox & Opera, but not in IE or Safari
    (windows)

    Fullquote including the sig - always a useful bogosity indicator.

    Which part of "Any URL involved?" did you fail to understand.

    Yet you refuse to reveal what "this" is.

    Wow, are you an asshole by nature or just in the forums?

    Please keep using the same anonymous "From" field as long as you remain a
    clueless coward who refuses to get free help with her or his problems. Thank
    you in advance.
