    I just installed IE8. Pretty much no problems going to any sites other than
    when I try to go to gmail. Going to mail.google.com gives me a problem. The
    tab blinks the word connecting every couple of seconds and it appears that
    IE8 is attempting to connect but some error occurs and the cycle continues.
    Unless I close the tab it will go on forever. I never had this problem with
    IE7. SImply going to IE8 has caused the problem. What can I do?

    Hi,

    Add *.google.com and (optional) *.youtube.com to your Trusted sites zone
    (Tools>Internet Options-Security tab).

    Remove http://www.google.com or http://www.youtube.com if they are already
    in the list and replace them with the start(*) notation above.

    There have been problems with the GMail notifier. Disable it in your windows
    startup list (Start>Run>msconfig - Startup tab) and if you have not already
    done so update your Google toolbar from toolbar.google.com.

    Read the Google Toolbar options carefully, there are some options (like
    popup blocker) that are incompatible with IE8.

    Regards.
