Eclipse:Java EE perspective crashes with Internet explorer unspecified error.Why?

Hi Folks
I'm using eclipse version 3.6.1's Java EE perspective for web development . I'm a relative newbie in this area. Eclipse works well , except when it throws a few tantrums like the one in the question . Often I have eclipse crashing with default browser which I believe is IE , saying there is a unspecified script error. Any idea why this could be happening?
Is is it a bug or am I missing something here that I could do to prevent it

I don't have any idea regarding the error you mention, but what I would do is either use the internal browser built into Eclipse or configure Eclipse to use another browser, such as Firefox or Chrome. If you do so, there is nothing that says you can't open IE separately to check out how the app's UI works in IE.

Hi Peter,
I'm referring to the error occurring while using the internal browser.
I've attached a screenshot , have a look and let me know what you guys think could be causing the issue.
Thanks.
Vivek

The web browser built into Eclipse is not what I'd classify as "Industrial Strength". I only use it in specialized cases where it's convenient. When I need full browser capabilities, I use an external browser such as Firefox, Chrome or IE.
