As I said at LzD, that isn't IE9's fault.  Try compatibility view in IE9.  See Why are some webpages blank or incorrectly displayed in Internet Explorer 9?

If I have to use IE for some weird reason, I make sure I have compatibility view enabled so it renders more properly. But I totally understand Temmu's thoughts. I gave up on IE years ago!

It used to be that folks were designing more for IE, but I think they are waking up and creating them more as standards compliant now instead of favoring IE over other browsers. Now IE begins to suffer the same issues other browsers had when developers were favoring IE.

Funny how that works LOL!

BTW: IE has gotten much better at standards compliant too...just not enough yet.

Windows 7 keeps hustling me to install it but I won't and just have IE8 but I have never even used that on this install either. All the sites I need to use work just fine with FF on Iron so I just can not be bothered.  cool.gif

I would strongly suggest you install IE9 over IE8 or any earlier version. It is better than the others. And don't forget that if you have an older version which is more vulnerable, you just make it easier for your system to get hit by malware. You don't have to actually use IE to get hit. They can apparently check your system with scripting to see what Internet facing programs, plugins, etc. you have going on and tailor the attack for you. Isn't that just special?  rolleyes.gif

You don't want to uninstall IE8. You will need it for Windows Updates at the very least. I would never uninstall IE for that very reason.

Why do I need IE for updates ? I have 7 set up to inform me when updates are available and then choose which ones I want to install. You can use FF to download directly from the Microsoft site as I recall from my XP days.  unsure.gif

You don't actually...but there are times when you need IE for a given site. There are only a handful that I need it for, but for those, the only browser that works right on those sites is IE. But it's of course up to you.

I would suggest locking it down and disabling any plugins without your express permissions (you can do that in IE9) rather than deleting it.  But again, it's up to you.

However, that is only as a diagnostic.

See the conflicting stuff. Apparently you can disable it according to this article. But not remove it if it's a 64-bit Windows 7.

Hi thanks for the input that last link looks like the one for me. thumbsup.gif

I have not familiarized myself with 7 at all as I only have it installed for running games and would not even have it at all if mainstream games were GNU/Linux supported.  cool.gif

more ie 9 notes

well, ok, note - one other thing - i notice that on some sites, the "back" arrow doesn't seem particularly effective.
but on the same site, ff backs up just fine.
