IE 6 crashes with AW CSS scrollbar style
Further digging led to the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
The problem has presumably been fixed in Windows XP since I haven't encountered the problem there, but it has never been fixed in Windows 2000, despite the fact that the article claims the problem only occurs on XP machines.
Once I identified the cause of the crashes as the use of the scroll bar styles, I started looking for each possible scroll bar style in AW, and found that AW sets the "scrollbar-arrow-color" style in all of the aw.css files except for the xp skin. When I commented out that style in the aw.css files, the crash went away!
Now to some questions. I haven't actually seen any side-effects of commenting out that style, is it actually used anywhere? Is there a more effective way to disable that style to avoid the crash that doesn't involve editing the runtime files?
