can't do a 'view source' on web pages in IE

has anyone run into a problem 'viewing source' on a web page in IE (6.0.2600.0000)? i tried microsoft's suggestion of clearing the local cache to no avail. i'm certain i haven't run out of cache/storage space on my 80gb drive; nor do i have that much history stored locally.

system is windows 2000 pro, sp1 on a dell workstation 530, plenty of hard drive space and ram.

Does this problem occur on every web page? I run IE6 and can view source codes. (Is there a particular reason that you want to read the source code?)

It depends on where on the page you right click....some frames within a web page are actually animated .gifs (pictures) so you won't be able to read the code directly off it, but later in the script. Try clicking (right) on different areas of the pages to see what options come up for you.

Please post back with what you find, and also check back here for other responses.

Ps. Here's a good page that explains animated gifs, plus a great page to test your right click options: http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutors/animate.html

pretty much occurs on every page. i view source sometimes to see how some pages are generated- just curious i guess.

i do realize that framed pages will bring up the source for that frame- nothing happens when i view any part of the page. i'll try reinstalling ie6 to see if that clears up the problem. thanks.

self starter,

I just checked out the deal on Microsoft.com and it states that if your temporary internet folder is full it won't display the source code...go figure. Here's the link to the bulletin:

Maybe this will help.
