Plugin and Upgrade Installations in Internet Explorer 8

After recently upgrading to Wordpress 3.0.3 and 3.0.4, I have noticed that whenever I use the automatic upgrade feature or whenever I install a plugin in Internet Explorer 8, I receive the dreaded "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" message.

It happens approximately 3 seconds after hitting the "Install Plugin" button or the "Upgrade Automatically" button.

I have tested this on 3 other computers all running Internet Explorer 8. The problem does not occur when using Firefox or Google Chrome.

The page that it is trying to access is:


This was not an issue with WordPress 3.0.2 or below.

After manually upgrading to 3.0.4, the problem still persists. Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Component changed from General to Upgrade/Install
  • Keywords reporter-feedback added; needs-testing removed

Nothing should've changed in the output functions in this case

Does the upgrade complete? Does it complete using a different browser? Has the server configuration changed recently (Such as caching, performance items, or other related items)?
