Q. Internet Explorer 6 stops responding when you resize an Active Document server window?

When you host an an Active Document server in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, IE may hang when you resize the window.

NOTE: If you hide the Internet Explorer resize handle, IE starts responding.

This behavior may occur if Internet Explorer is set to hide the status bar and the Active Document server displays scroll bars, because Windows sends the same mouse coordinates even though the mouse is no longer over the resize handle.
