If you host an Active Document server in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, Internet Explorer may stop responding when you resize the window. If you hide the Internet Explorer resize handle, Internet Explorer responds again.


This issue may occur if the following conditions are true:
  • Internet Explorer is set to hide the status bar.
  • The Active Document server displays scroll bars.
If these conditions are true, Windows continues to send the same mouse coordinates even though the mouse is no longer over the resize handle.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
