Today’s happening in the office was really interesting. One of my development SharePoint sites simply refuses to load on both IE and Firefox.

My manager said screw this do a full re-install. Upon hearing that I decided to try it one more time. As expected on IE it refuses to load and does not recognize my LDAP credentials. However on Firefox, it loads perfectly fine after keying in my LDAP credentials.

Fear of my manager’s instructions perhaps? The irony however is that an open source product managed to load a Microsoft application but a Microsoft application is unable to do so.

Not sure if this is a IIS issue but I am not complaining. At least I get to test my code now.
