[EP-tech] Eprints being rendered with top of home page black in Internet Explorer but not Firefox


I have set up the latest version Eprints (3.3.10) on a server internal to our network. The problem is that when I view the home page in IE8, the top half of the page is blacked out.  This error is reported:

Errors on this webpage might cause it to work incorrectly.
'eprints_http_root' is undefined, auto.js, line 9732
Object doesn't support this property or method.
Auto-3.3.10.js, line 9854
Code: 0, char: 3

The same thing happens in SlimBrowser (6.01, build 069), but only when I go to the login page.

Both the home page and the login page render perfectly in Chrome and Firefox.

Any suggestions as to what is causing this most gratefully received.

Many thanks.
