On this subject, one of the staff at Ancestry told me that anyone
using a proxy connection would continue to have problems with
any of the Ancestry web pages. She suggested that the only way
I could solve it was to NOT use a proxy.

Well, as any cable modem user knows, a proxy is REQUIRED.
And, anyone using other utilities, such as AdSubtract, also uses
a proxy. Having to turn off proxy settings every time one visits
an Ancestry page that uses Java Script is NOT satisfactory!!!!!

It's odd that with the same EXACT settings I can access and
browse through countless pages on other sites that use Java
Script. It's only at Ancestry where there is a conflict. That
tells me that it's Ancestry's fault.

BTW, I DID turn off AdSubtract, and reconfigure the settings
in MSIE to NOT use a proxy -- no change in performance was
observed. The same problems are still there.
