I-Explorer Blanked/ Blocked Only GMail

07/23/2011 2:26 PM

Is it war against Google through its user by Microsoft?

I opened this morning my GMail in I-Explorer and found the warning by browser that Google is not compatible and ...

Do this and that ...

It kept blocking and opened google chrome to check if the problem is with the mail client or IE.

It opened OK.

I tried to post this discussion on IE after entering some of my text the CR mis-behaving and not opening to add image:

This is a clip from my Google mail

While my other accounts open OK:

I am posting this through Google Chrome as IE is freezed when I try to post this discussion.

I downloaded IE9 last week because my wife uses IE. It looked like it sent little tentacles all through my computer. I deleted the download within ten minutes and she can stay with IE8.

Only reason a person use a Internet Explorer is to Download another better Browser.

I would see if one or other possibilities may have occurred... 1) See if a setting was changed. 2) Run a virus scan. 3) Run a Malware and Spy ware scan. 4) Download any MS Windows Update. What happens is where you uninstall a program a power outage, or someone as I witnessed a person who thinks they cut the power off to the PC instead of shutting down properly the Operating System files gets trashed. Also any programs like Kazza, Gator, these free crap ware programs allow all sorts of stuff to load onto a PC, there may be some white papers on this subject for research. Also check Microsoft Tech Net for any known issues and email support, I believe there is even a Forum on the MS website that may answer questions that I may be unaware of.

Thanks

It is what the IE asked me to change:

Have to remove google.com from:

Tools ==>> Compatible view setting Remove google.com

After removing google.com normal view enabled.

But by marking the 3rd button "Display all websites in compatibility view" in spite of removing google normal view remained disabled.

The only reason to use IE is for websites that still use ActiveX instead of Java.
Or to "download a better browser" like someone else already said!

"little tentacles" -- I like that too! It's quite true though. MS applications leverage access to the system level components unlike any other product because they can.

you must be on windows7

here's a decent IE clone Kramarat suggested a while ago

http://www.slimbrowser.net/en/dlpage.php

or there's always firefox

I use opera sometimes

it sounds like you need to uninstall IE 9 & go back to IE8 for windows updates

Totally works on my linux & XP boxes without a hitch

it's a IE9/W7 problem

I'll bet the EULA's are pretty exciting, you didn't really need that 1st born or your left nut did you?

I'm especially thankful for those subtle differences between Microsoft's 'End User License Agreement' and Debian's 'Social Contract'!
