iframes issue with query string

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

All, I have an iFrame that is querying an outside URL. This URL has a
query string at the end of it.

For example: http://www.bob.com/bob.aspx?blahblahblah

Anyway, when using firefox or opera, everything works fine.

But if I'm using IE (6 or 7) or Windows Safari, the query string does
not take. It's almost as if the query string is stripped off before
accessing the 3rd party site.

However, I can paste the URL with the query string directly into the
IE browser address bar and it works fine.

Any thoughts?

thanks in advance,
