VERY Strange IE6 problem...

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Mr. Sandog, Jan 30, 2010.

    I tried upgrading IE6 to IE7, then immediately reverted back because
    of the stupid static button placements.

    Now, I have a REALLY weird issue - I type an address into IE6's
    address bar, hit ENTER, then my FIREFOX browser goes to the address I
    just typed into IE6's address bar!!!

    If I close Firefox and do the same thing, Firefox will open, then go
    to the URL I just typed into IE6's address bar.

    WTF, over???

    Are you running WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    Is Internet Explorer selected as your default Browser in the CUSTOM section
    of Set Program Access and Computer Defaults?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed and/or uninstalled IE7?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    So you are choosing INSECURITY over some minor temporary annoyances of
    button placements?

    JEEEEEZE! No wonder the internet is awash with viruses when there are people
    as stupid as you...

    Nothing to do with being derogatory - just plain irritation at the
    consummate lack of understanding of computer security.....

    When "rob^_^" uses "derogatory" he's kind! :
    Some of us, internet users (especially those who visit pages with foreign
    languages written right-to-eft), just have no choice because
    website-developers do not care to check whether their nice pages fuction
    correctly when opened with browsers other than IE, likewise the browsers'
    developers do not perform enough checks.
    In the mean time, while waiting for better browsers and better pages, let's
    all cool down and unite forces and help each other.
    Thanks
