Has anyone had trouble with this error?

"Uncaught Exception invisible node cannot be made current".

This particular error started popping up when I clicked on the browser button. It would stay locked with this message on the screen.

Looking back I think I caused this condition in one of two ways. I either messed up my registry by plugging my BB into my laptop prior to booting my laptop. I did realize this was a no-no because the laptop wouldn't finish the boot sequence. I had to shut the laptop down and unplug the BB and reboot the laptop to get it to start.

Another thing I did that may have caused a problem was to unplug my BB from the laptop while using PAM feature, without disconnecting the modem, at the modem control panel.

I did numerous hard reboots, to no avail. Finally I rebooted the BB, and then connected to desktop manager went to backup/restore and restored my BB to the last restore point in which it worked properly. Problem solved. Thank Goodness. I was really starting to think that I would have to do a complete wipe of the device. And the restore was a last ditch effort before that.

I hope this may help someone else that has had this missfortune.

Moral to the story

(1) Never connect your BB to your computer before it has completely booted up. Open the BB desktop manager then hook up the BB.

(2) Never unplug your BB when using it as a modem without disconnecting the connection in the modem console.

(3) At least back up your BB once a week or soon after adding new software or programs. That is after determining that the software will work properly.

1. I can boot my computer with the BB plugged in. I always plug in the BB then open desktop manager.

2. I've often unplugged the BB before closing out my modem connection.

3. This is always a GOOD idea!

Have you ever heard of this error before?

Now I think my analysis may be incorrect.

I just started having the same error!

Happened right after I clicked "allow javascript" and "allow javascript popups" in the browser settings.

Now I can't even open the browser to uncheck it, because I get "Uncaught exception: invisible node cannot be made current" and it just gets stuck there and I have to do a battery pull.

Any suggestions?

EDIT: I almost forgot I just did a backup like 30 mins ago, so im just restoring that now. Should work again then. Just dont try the "Allow Javascript" and "Allow JavaScript popups" in the browser setting, its evil! :P

It's not allowing JavaScript (at least not that in isolation) that's causing the problem. I turn JavaScript and popups on and off all the time depending on the sites that I'm visiting.

Two questions:

1) what theme are you using?

2) do you have any "push" weather applications installed?

Hmm, could it be "Allow Embedded Media" then? I almost forgot, I turned that on too.

Im just using the normal theme that comes with the phone, and as far as #2, no I do not.

I just did a full restore, now for some reason I dont have the "Internet Browser" anymore, only the SunCom Browser (which I had activiated at the time of the backup), but I always had options, now I dont anymore, dont tell me im stuck with the SunCom browser now, lol.

To restore your Browser, log into your BIS account and click the link to re-send your service books.

I guess I could of done that, but a Battery Pull did the trick ;) Thanks!

Now, Where would I log into my BIS account though? Im new to all of this, lol.

EDIT: the "Uncaight exception: invisible node cannot be made current" error came up again, this time I didn't do anything but change the browser back to Internet Browser (and was even browsing some sites, exited out of it, just tried to get back in, and got the error again)

Suncom's BIS site: https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html?brand=suncom

I should have asked, however, if you're on a work or personal device and, if it's work, if you or your IT department set up the email. If it's been set up for you by someone at your work then you may not have a BIS account set up.

Are you able to get far enough into the Browser to see/change the options right now?

I'm curious what you have for the following settings:

- Emulation Mode
- Start Page
- Home Page Address

It's really weird that it just started ...

Emulation mode is BlackBerry
What do you mean by start page and home page address? I didnt mess with it.

Im calling suncom right now, I do have a BIS account, they set me up when I got the phone, I guess I just forgot my username, lol.

What is the first thing that loads when you click on your Browser icon? Does it show a list of Bookmarks? Does it load a Startup Web page?

Here's my train of though ... You're on a Curve which, if I recall, ships with OS 4.2 so your Browser should be opening to the Bookmarks page.

The message that you're seeing seems to be associate with opening the Browser.

The message you're seeing is saying that you are trying to make current a node (an entry in a tree) which is currently invisible.

I'm wondering if there's a pre-loaded bookmark or a push-application from your carrier that is not formatted correctly and is causing the error.

Well I just decided not to even mess with it. I just got off the phone with SunComs Tech Support, told them about my errors etc. and I told him I had the phone for 8 days. He said If I have had it for less than 14 days, I can simply go to the store and replace it for a new one.

So I think im just going to do that tomorrow.

Should I manually backup my adress book and memopad etc., or should the backup I initially made (before the browser error came up, but I did restore that, but it gave me the same error even after restoring) work?

P.S.: yea when I always opened the browser it brought me to the bookmarks page

Okay, this may not be the right solution to the problem, but I recently experienced an "uncaught exception" error with my blackberry messenger. After trying a ton of things, including a complete removal of the OS and then a fresh install, it all came down to the database for my messenger being corrupt, hence the backup and restore feature bringing the problem right back.

To fix the problem, all that was needed was hooking up my BB to the computer, running desktop manager, selecting backup/restore and then advanced. From there, I selected blackberry messenger from the list on the right side and then clicked on clear. That cleared the database for my messenger and the problem was solved.

It might be worth doing the same thing on your phone except only clear the browser database. You'll lose your bookmarks and stuff, but the error should disappear. (Hopefully.)
