“Seeing an 'Operation Aborted' error message when trying to load their blogs from Internet Explorer. We're looking into this and will update this message when we have a fix.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Update (May 26): We are still working on resolving this bug. This only affects viewers using IE to view the blog; for right now, blog owners can either move the Followers gadget lower in their sidebar, or remove it altogether. Either action will eliminate the pop-up dialog box in IE.
We will update this post when a fix has been made. — latest update on Thursday, May 21, 2009” – taken from “Known Blogger Issues”
Because of the above stated issue, I have moved my “Follower” widget to the bottom of my blog. I am hoping this fixes the problem. If not, please let me know so that I can remove it all together.
