We use a proxy server, with user login names & passwords, to connect to the internet. IE8 always comes up with a 'cannot display this web page' message on startup and we then have to hit the refresh button in the title bar to bring up the login box for the proxy server. The login box is not hiding behind the window - I have checked that. This only happens with IE8. IE7 & 6 bring up the login box straight away without the need for refresh. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this discrepancy with IE8 ?
