Microsoft Launches MySpace…Spaces…er…Error

I got the following error when clicking the Search button across the top search form on Microsoft Spaces in Mozilla Firefox:

Spaces Error

  2. Remember that there are other browsers out there, there really are! Did you forget those lawsuits already?
  3. You have enough money to create something different. Do #1 or do something different.

    I’ve actually got .NET framework loaded and running. I actually develop in .NET. If this is indeed, the issue, then a much better error message is in order. Or perhaps a script that tests the framework prior to loading the page.

    I’m going to try again in a couple days.

    when i load spaces.live.com i dont see a SEARCH link. Perhaps they took it down for repairs?

    Either way, did you report this bug to them like a responsible person? I doubt Microsoft’s team reads this blog.

    No, I did not report this bug to Microsoft. I don’t believe that end-users of software products should be the persons responsible to report bugs. I believe in robust testing and quality assurance programs. Given Microsoft’s profitability, I believe Microsoft can afford this.

    That said, I should say clearly that I am not a “Microsoft Basher”. Had this been Yahoo!, I would have posted the same exact message.

    Had it been open source, I would have reported the bug like a ‘responsible person’.
