Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site

I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site .... Operation aborted"

That error is a known transient problem (worse on slower connections) with Internet Explorer version 5,6 and 7. Microsoft claims it is fixed in IE 8,

It does not occur in any other browser, e.g. Firefox, Safari or Google Chrome.

I made the changes for compatibility to IE8 but I still don't see a submit button to place my order. So I can't order anything from here.

There are two problems with IE listed in the FAQ under known problems. The first one is on older versions and the second one is on Version 8. See /book/lower-half-cartcheckout-screen-messed-internet-explorer-8
