"Empty?" How did that get there? Almost universally that will say
Mozilla/4.0 instead. E.g. that is what the MSIE 8.0 is supposedly
compatible with. I have no idea what a host would think being
compatible with Empty might mean. Typically what happens
when a host can't parse a User-Agent string is that it just assumes
the worst and decides that your browser has 0 capabilities, such as
no script support (and certainly no ActiveX support), etc. Then, if other
components for that page do get included by making different assumptions
about the User-Agent it should be no wonder that the browser reports errors
from the resulting inconsistencies.
Fix your User-Agent string!
