Problems with Internet Explorer

Posted on 04/13/2013 5:22:49 AM PDT by quintr

Am having trouble with Internet Explorer. Is anyone else experience problems with this browser. Return key won't work when typing emails and some attachments won't download with a note that there's a problem with IE. Any suggestions?

Clean your cookies and history and then close IE and restart.

Try Opera.com and use their web browser.
You'll be a lot happier.

Uninstall Exploder. Install Chrome.

That may not solve the problem, but then it might...good luck.

I prefer Firefox and Safari to IE. Both are excellent.

Use Chrome. Maybe Firefox.

Explorer should only ever be used to download a decent browser on a new PC.

I noticed this exact problem with the ‘enter’ key not working in some forums and some websites. It only happens with IE 10 and not the earlier 8 or 9 versions. I sent a message on a Microsoft forum but never heard a response to that issue. For something like the ‘enter’ key not working it seems more like IE10 is still a beta version and not ready for prime time. I also would recommend Chrome or Opera.

I noticed they released an update yesterday (I think).

Since I use Chrome, I spent 1/2 second saying “oh”, and then I promptly forgot all about it until your post.

You don’t indicate what version of Windows you’re on, or what version of IE you’re using. My browser of preference is Firefox. My experience with IE is that it’s a slow, bloated-pig of an app. And, as much as I like Chrome, I’m doing what I can to minimize my use of products from that bastion of leftists infecting Google.

Another Chrome user here.
Haven’t used IE in years on my personal computer.

I have a work computer that my employer has set up to use IE only for their network but if I’m surfing for something on that computer I’ll use Firefox or Chrome.

Hate! IE

Return key won't work when typing emails

You might have some pizza crust stuck under the key. Pull the key off the keyboard and clean it.......

Never use it. I either use Chrome or Firefox. IE breaks too often.

If you use the Firefox browser and the Greasemonkey addon then you can install the Replace Text script and rename Obama to Dummy.

You probably are infected with a virus. Google “eset online”, go to the eset site and run the eset scanner. After that, malwarebytes.org and run theirs.
