Today I am in a much better mood then yesterday. When problems accumulate, and you are therefore unable to do things you normally expect to be simple, I get in a rage.
google germany today will find a link if I search for "bes express 5.0.4 download". Thats fine.
But I stil stand to my other points:
The Blackberry.com site works with java script disabled, but, you cannot fill out the form.
I did not want to touch the security settings of the system, installing and removing firefox seemed a simpler method. Btw. IE Enhanced security settings was off.
The problem with adding the URL to the trusted zone sites is, that, since the download link is obfuscated with a java script, you will not know the link, the page you are landing in is not in the same domain as the link.
How could I add "downloads.blackberry.com" to my trusted zones if I can not see it ?
I dont complain about filling out the form, this takes less then 30 seconds. But the whole procedure from the beginning to the end took 20 minutes. 5 Minutes is what I expect. And If I had made the attempt to begin the download on a local PC, then make a note of the domain, then, add this to the trusted zone on the server, I would have been able to make it in that timeframe.
Or, if RIM had written "please add http://downloads.blackberry.com
to your trusted zone", that also would have been sufficent.
