IE8 'View Source' opens minimised

    Suddenly, after no previous problems, when I open 'Page / View Source' in IE8
    it flashes on screen then minimises immediately to the Taskbar.

    It can be viewed when maximised ok.
    It can be resized and I have then tried closing whilst holding down Ctrl.
    It only happens to 'View Source' not any other window.

    I am perplexed?

    Hi Bob,

    It is probably hidden from view behind the IE Window. Just move the IE
    Window down your screen to see the View Source window behind it.

    I have noticed the same issue since the last IE security update (last night
    my time)... It is also affecting all scripted popup windows..

    Here is the fix for view-source though.

    Press F12 to display the developer tool, Choose File>Customize Internet
    Explorer View Source>Notepad

    I am using Vista x86 SP2 with NIVIDA GForce. Can you please post back with
    your Windows and Graphics card details.

    Regards.

    Rob,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am using Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2, and NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE
    nForce 430 Graphics Card.

    I too noticed this happen subsequent to updates and it has happened on two
    PCs I use. Bit of an inconvenience rather than a problem. If I change the
    Registry Keys to 'Notepad' the window stays in view (not minimised) but as
    soon as I revert back to the Default Editor is minimises immediately?? What
    will the next Microsoft update bring??


    Cheers

    Its a low level patch, not so much to do with IE. Its a catchup game with
    the black hats. Slowly MS is gaining the upper hand. A new nail will be
    issued to hold the new Jell-O in place subsequently. Such is the SDLC. As a
    developer I know nothing is perfect and don't have expectations of such. The
    other browser vendors have the same issues, but we don't see their posts
    here.

    Regards.
