Coldfusion error in Metatalk January 26, 2001 12:38 PM   Subscribe

I'm getting the following ColdFusion error whenever I attempt to
open any topic page in MetaTalk
(this is only when using AOL Mac 5.0's crappy internal pseudo-IE browser; big ugly error message hidden inside):

Error Occurred While Processing Request

Error Diagnostic Information

An error occurred while evaluating the expression: 
 BROWSER.mozillaVersion=GetToken(#USER_AGENT#, 2, "/ (")

Error near line 171, column 9.

Error resolving parameter USER_AGENT
ColdFusion was unable to determine the value of the parameter. This problem is very likely due to the fact that either: 

1.	You have misspelled the parameter name, or 
2.	You have not specified a QUERY attribute for a CFOUTPUT, CFMAIL, or CFTABLE tag.

Date/Time: 01/26/01 12:35:32
Remote Address:
Query String: category_ID=5
Please inform the site administrator that this error has occurred (be sure to include the contents of this page in your message to the administrator).

whoah. The IE browser has no user agent property? You can view a comment thread on MetaFilter ok? The same code is being called in both places.

Just checked, and yeah MetaFilter itself works fine. Attempting to load a MetaTalk thread directly (such as this one) works fine. It's just when trying to load a MetaTalk topic page in that one browser.
