I had a problem with IE 6 and having to hit refresh to be able to see the HFS webpages.

If you use HFS and go to any of the transfer screens and instead you get a blank white screen, the problem may be the coding in the html template.

I tried different templates until I ran into the grey one. It loaded everytime without error. The main difference was the below line. Just replace this line in the default template

 <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

with this line

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

Thats Western character encoding and will only work for English style character sites.

UTF-8 Unicode, is universal.

IE 6 supports UTF-8, i have no problems loading UTF-8 pages here in IE 6, Firefox and Opera.

Please don't tell me you use IE 6 as your main browser  :-\

I wouldn't say this is historical...

IE 6 is what most of my customers use so that is what I must use.

It was meant to be historical in the sense to not delete it. I did not see any other post on the subject and many other people must run into the same problem since I have seven computers here and all of them use IE 6 and they all had the same problem.

yes, several other people in the italian board pointed at this problem.
it's in my to-do-list.
sadly, the solution you suggest is not acceptable. HFS would stop working for a lot of non-western users. I will have to study the problem.

It was meant only for people with the problem, not as a default setting in the program.

Maybe you could have the program read the browser character set when it starts and act accordingly, or as a toggle in the program options.

No, i have never experienced this problem because of the character set. In any browser.

Nope, I don't recall ever encountering this issue with any browser.

I too, see this problem. Default template wouldn't load at all
untill I clicked refresh for each page change.
My template would load, but not a empty folder, untill I
clicked refresh. I noticed the address bar didn't show the
empty folder untill refresh. Changing the charset=UTF-8 to
something else solved both templates here. I know ie6 is
pretty substandard, but its also still widely used.
