    Often an "Alert Window" will appear with the statement:
    "This document contains no data"

    This is obviously wrong as it appears over the desired document. Once you close the alert window, the page can be read normally.

    How do I get rid of this annoying problem?

    Running a Mozilla product, I presume?

    That tripe appears on some Web pages that are not built to nominal Web standards.

    IE does not use these standards, and, as a result, if a particular page is 'optimized' for Internet Exploiter, it will not render properly in some other, standards-based browsers.

    Don't sweat it; it isn't on your end.

    If it becomes excessive, you can try reinstalling the Firefox or Mozilla Suite; make sure you also toss the folder it installed to before you reinstall it, though, as that will toss all your settings and plugins as well.

    fastvfr: You're correct..I am using Mozilla Firefox. This after removing (I hope) IE. However, if it should continue, and I were forced to do a reinstall, how would I protect my already bookmarked locations as your advice requires a prior deletion of Mozilla Firefox?

    You don’t need to delete Firefox, download and install the latest version into the same folder. To save your bookmarks go to Bookmarks – Manage Bookmarks ... File – Export.
