      When Microsoft Internet Explorer makes many requests for objects, it may appear to stop responding, or "hang". Requests to the current Web server do not complete, and the Internet Explorer window displays an arrow-hourglass pointer. When this problem occurs, images may not appear as expected, and a message may appear in the status bar at the bottom of the window stating that there are a certain number of "items remaining", or it may say "Done".
      This problem may occur if Internet Explorer sends many Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) requests, and then aborts many of those requests. When this problem occurs, HTTP requests to the same Web server do not succeed.

      Note: When you use other Web servers, HTTP requests work correctly.
