    When trying to search pages on some web sites in Internet Explorer using ctrl + F, I get an error message stating, “An error has occurred in this dialog. Error: 239. Object doesn’t support this property or method.” I often get this message when searching for some text on an Amazon.com page.

    I think it is because the page I am searching has frames, but I am not sure. Is there anything I can do? Is the problem related to my computer or to the web page? Is it out of my hands?

    Regards,

    JMT

    First thing I would try is turning off Script debugging by check marking...
    "Disable Script Debugging" in Tools | Options | Advanced (tab).

    1.) What version of IE?
    2.) Many IE problems are because of addons. Have you tried running without addons?

    I have IE 7.0.6001.18000.

    I tried turning off Script debugging by check marking "Disable Script Debugging (Internet Explorer)" and "Disable Script Debugging (Other)," but I got the same error message.

    I then tried running IE without add-ons by going to Start and typing in “Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)," I then got an IE window into whose address bar I put this address, but I still got the same problem when performing ctrl + F searches.

    Have you tried IE8?

    Is a search different from a "Find" and if so, how do I do a search?

    NO, a search is the same as a find.
    Just type in a work even though you get the error.

    I tried downloading IE 8 and got an error message stating that my system (32/64 bit) was not supported.

    Also, the search/find still does not work. Whatever word I type in causes the 239 Error message to appear.

    Make sure that you download the correct version for your computer - see Internet Explorer 8: Worldwide sites.

    It worked! IE8 can now explore that page and others!
