Browser specific bug in Search

I just got a bug report about getting an error page on this site when trying to use the search feature. After looking into it, I cannot reproduce the problem using the latest Firefox browser, but with IE7 I get an error page 100% of the time.

I no longer have a machine running IE6 so I don't know if its just IE7 or not. If anyone out there has IE6 and can confirm if this error happens using it or not I would appreciate it. Anyone who finds this error does happen for them in Firefox please let me know, but so far it doesn't happen for me except in IE7.

Update: I also am not able to replicate this bug in IE7 using my local machine http://localhost/mojoportal/




Update Again: In IE7 the error happens I think partly because of the cross page postback from the SearchInput control to SearchResults.aspx. Even more odd, is if I go straight to the page and do a search with IE7 I get no error, but I also get no results.

Update Problem Solved:
It turns out that the cause of this was a little script I placed in my skin from Technorati that was supposed to just link to my technorati profile. Even though I saved my settings on technorati to not include their blog search button it was still doing it. Removing their script fixed the problem that was happening in IE when trying to do search on this site.

Yep, the search error happens in IE6 as well.  Your search works fine with Firefox.

I'm still running IE6 because IE7 crashes every time I close a browser window,  including pop-ups.
