IE 8 is recognized as IE 6


(TheBigS) #1

I’ve just setup piwik and was testing the installation, just to see that the two Internet Explorer 8 visits are logged as Internet Explorer 6. Both machines running Windows XP. With Windows 7 and IE 8 it is recognized correctly. Why or how could it be?

That’s odd. Go to: http ://whatsmyuseragent.com/ and post the UserAgent strings from your XP boxes.

Hi vipsoft,
here are the requested infos.
1.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6.5; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
2.
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB0.0; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I think the problem lies in the two compatible statements.

Kind regards

Ah yes, the misbehaving addon is GTB (Google Tool Bar).

I’ll look into a workaround.

Thanks. This is now fixed in svn. http://dev.piwik.org/trac/changeset/2288

It’ll be included in the 0.6.3 release.
