Using check marks (ticks) when browsing a site

    I have repeatedly experienced an issue in that when asked to accept terms and
    conditions by checking a box I have done as asked and pressed the button to
    move forward to the next page but I get a message telling me I have not
    accepted the terms and conditions. I use the go back button to find that sure
    enough the check mark has disappeared so I re-enter it and my frustrations
    mount as I get the same result. I am using IE8 and reset all setting s to
    default which made no difference and ran my virus checker (just in case)
    which came back negative. I am using a Microsoft Wireless Laser Keyboard and
    Mouse 6000 v.2.0. The site in particular is an airline (Ryanair.com) and the
    site was not experiencing any difficulties at the time as my neighbour
    accessed the page I could not access using IE 7. I am not savvy enough to
    understand the likely cause of the problem but would like to solve it.

    Then start by running IE without all the toolbars that you may have
    installed over time.

    I use IE8 under Win XP Pro, SP3, and I went to Ryanair.com and had no
    trouble with the checkbox for accepting the terms and conditions.

    Hi Trader,

    What is the web site address where this occurs. (sounds like ebay or another
    online auction site).

    Try

    Tools>Compatibility View Settings, check "Include updated website lists from
    Microsoft"
    or
    Add the web site address to the list of sites that require compatibility
    view.

    Also
    Tools>Internet Options, Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"

    Your keyboard is probably not at fault.... more than likely it is the way
    the web site is designed. The above settings will enable IE8 to correct that
    issue.

    Regards.

    Ryanair !!

    You will probably have to pay extra charges, before they will
    allow you to use their website. Couldn't you find a more
    customer friendly airline?

    Seriously. There are no problems from here with the Ryanair
    site, using Win XP(SP3) and IE8.

    If you are having problems (and you are sure you want to fly with
    Ryanair), you could download and install an additional browser
    (such as Mozilla Firefox). It can be very useful to have access
    to an alternative browser on your computer, because some web
    pages do not display properly in IE8 (display problems are not
    always caused by IE8).

    One other think to check. IE8 may be configured to block some or
    all cookies. Some secure websites go into a 'loop', if they
    cannot save a cookie on your computer. Check the cookie
    settings.

    Also, is there a privacy report icon (looks like a red eye) at
    the bottom of the Ryanair page? If so, double click on the
    privacy report icon, to show the list of blocked cookies. You
    can permit individual cookies by right clicking on the name of
    the cookie, and selecting 'always accept cookies from this site'.

    BY THE WAY ...
    When you click the checkbox and Submit, then use the Back Button, the
    checkbox will be cleared. This is normal behavior.

    Some pages might gather the information you had entered, and then back-fill
    the boxes if you need to go backwards and revisit a page over again. But the
    writer has to take the effort to gather the information and store it, then
    call it again when you click the Back Button. Most writers will not go to
    the trouble. Some do. But whatever, it's not a bug of Internet Explorer.
