    You went into Photoshop and edited an Internet Explorer error into Safari.

    Either that or you're going to a website that has this error as the page background.

    Are you at home or on a business network? The proxy server may return "clever" error messages.

    I'm at home... I recently installed a D-Link wireless adapter USB Stick onto my mum's Windows XP SP2 Desktop PC... I doubt that would be the problem though...

    What was the URL you tried to visit?

    (Also, if he did Ps the picture, it's a damn fine work from Ps)

    If I understand your question, you entered a non-existing web site and that is your browser's equivalent 404 Not Found message. You aren't getting that window with a legit web address, are you?

    or you've set your user agent to IE.

    And you've damaged the internet. :D

    WHAT? There is nothing wrong with the site h4xr.org!! It's just a site for quick image uploading via the dashboard! Don't think it's a hack, scam or malicious site!:eek::eek::eek:

    Well, tell us the website so we can try it out!

    Maybe then we'll have an answer. :)

    I got the standard

    "Safari can’t find the server.
    Safari can’t open the page “http://wtf/??/” because it can’t find the server “wtf”."

    I think you broke your internets, fix it quick, before your mac turns into a dell :eek:

    Use AppZap on Safari (deletes the app and any pref files that are related to it) then re-download Safari (http://www.apple.com/safari/download/) and hopefully tada, that should fix it.

    When I try to visit http://wtf/?? I get the OpenDNS guide page with some suggestions (looks like a google search results page) as that is where the DNS I use sends me when an address can't be resolved.

    anti-microsoft: What are your DNS servers? They could be returning the page instead of allowing your browser to simply display the standard error.

    I've tried it in Firefox 3, again, the same thing. So it must be something to do with what you are saying. How do I stop this?

    Thanks,

    Either...

    a.) You Photoshopped it in there.
    b.) The site has a custom 404 error page (and it's set to that nasty IE one).

    Look all you guys, why the hell would I take time and dedication in doing such a stupid thing? I mean, honestly. Who thinks that photoshopping an IE error message into Safari is a fun thing to do?

    Thanks,

    Well someone thought it was funny to post it on the site so people thought they had met an error message.

    Did it confuse you or amuse you?
