Ie8 Link With Target Not Work


I have windows 7 running ie8. After i installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "a"links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new ie window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when i click that link, a new tab is created with caption "connecting to ". The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the url of the original page.

However, for those links which open the web page in the same ie window, seem working fine. I would like to repair the ie8 or windows 7. But i don’t know how. It’s greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.

Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target

I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?

Hot Link Buttons Dont Work

When i load some web sites the hot link buttons aren't working. The problem just appeared. I don't remember any changes to the system. Running windows vista) i am talking about buttons that you click on on a web site that call up pop-up windows. This one site i frequent has buttons that i have always clicked on to call up results pop-ups from bridge games.

All of a sudden when the site opens the outlines of the buttons are there but no filler and no functionality. What has changed and how can i fix it?  I've tried changing cookie settings, and tried to find answers in various help areas. I know the buttons work on the site because i have checked on other computers.

Ie8 Web Page Opening Zip File From Link

I have ie8, standard setup. I have an online ordering application i login to that i use to download and print invoices. The process:i login to website, go to invoices section then list my invoices, there is a print button that i click on for each or one invoice, when i click it it is supposed to open another window then automatically bring up the save/download/open dialogue box to open a zip file that contains the invoice in pdf format. What happens is that once this file is brought up on screen to select your option the ie window closes automatically.

My issue is that when i click the print button the second web page opens then the box comes up asking do i want to close the web page, no zip file shows up or downloads. I have java as i think it's a java app, i have disables and enabled java, updated to latest version, updated ie etc but without luck. I have a vm running ie7 and same issue, i also have other co-workers that don't have the issue and others that do. Ny ideas where to look?

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?

Igoogle Doesn't Work With Ie8

Ie will not open my igoogle home page correctly. Using firefox when i sign into igoogle i get the igoogle page that i have created. When using ie 8 i get a igoogle page but it is not the one that i have set up with my g mail address, it does have some of the igoogle things just not any that i have added. I never had this problem with ie 7. When i installed win 7 about a week or so ago i don't believe i had this problem, if i did something i can't figure out what it is. I do get bing and msn ok just not the igoogle home page i set up with the gadgets i put on that home page.

In addition on ie 8 it shows the sing in but will not let me sign out and doesn't show my google e mail id. When i click on that sign in it doesn't go anywhere, do anything like go to the igoogle sing in as it should. I just reset ie for the 2nd or 3rd time and tried to sign in to igoogle and i got a page that is somewhat like igoogle but isn't my page. I have 3 g mail addresses and i can sign in using firefox with all 3 and they display the igoogle home page correctly.

In addition ie 8 is a hog, slow and who knows what else but at times i need a separate browser and i paid for it and since it can not be deleted from win7 and i'm a stickler for getting what i paid for. In addition i cant install ie7 as it says that ie 7 is not supported on this system. I can't download a new copy of ie 8 as it says i already have it.

Ie8 Sort By Name Doesn't Work

I keep getting surprised about how the functionality of microsoft software keeps declining. Windows media player keeps getting worse with each version, and now ie8. I barely use it because i'm almost exclusively a firefox user, but firefox fails in scrolling some pages smoothly when zoomed in, and ie8 is better at that. So sometimes i use it only for that purpose, but now having re-installed windows 7 from scratch and having imported the bookmarks from firefox, i realize that in ie8 the "sort by name" functionality in favorites is broken.

When it imported the bookmarks from firefox, it placed all the bookmarks from firefox's bookmark bar into ie8's favorites bar, which is great, except that it placed them in reverse alphabetical order! Are you freaking kidding me? So i think, ok, this is really stupid, a multi-billion dollar corporation didn't have one person in the internet explorer team that saw this?But well, i figured i would just go to the favorites side bar, or the organize favorites box, right click on the "favorites bar" folder, and choose "sort by name". It doesn't work! It simply doesn't work.

It does nothing at all. And it doesn't work on the other folders in the favorites tree. And this is not an old, corrupted installation of windows, it's brand new from two days ago, from a reformatted hard drive, and it barely has any programs in it except for drivers. This is just pathetic, "sort by name" has been on ie since version 4 or 5, and now they took it away, but they are so lazy that they forgot to take it out of the context menu. Dded to this, ie is really ugly on the eyes, with that hideous baby blue color all over the interface, especially on the toolbars and tabs. Firefox at least has the anycolor and personas plugins to bring some decent visual taste to it.

Automatic Image Resizing Doesn't Work In Ie8

When i open an image in internet explorer, if it's larger than the window, it doesn't resize to fit the window. I've tried setting, unsetting and resetting the 'enable automatic image resizing' checkbox in internet options/advanced/multimedia , and it just doesn't work. This doesn't work, in two separate windows 7 machines, one of them an upgrade from xp, one of them a new windows 7 professional 64bit out of the box, so i don't think it's a hangover from an upgrade setting. Any clues on what else i need to do to make image resizing work in windows 7?

Save Target As Issue

From time to time i would like to be able to save pictures or mp3's, but the "save target as" feature is dull. What setting do i change to enable that "save target as" feature?

I can left-click on the link, but it will be opened directly by it's default program. If it's an mp3, i don't want to have to hunt for it on my hard drive. Ie8 is already optimized. I've already tried deleting everything in the browsing history. I've tried defaulting everything in the general, security, privacy, and advanced tabs. What's next to try?

Homegroup Denies Update Privileges On Target Pc

I have two windows 7/64 pcs (home premium) with a homegroup established - can access files either way, but cannot update them. I have tried this with norton firewall on and off. I have tried with various file types but all access to save or save-as are denied. How do i fix this? I thought that home-groups were supposed to make things easier? Not sure how to paste an image of the folder permissions but in effect it says:

Moved Target All Programs Under Start Menu

I moved the target where "all programs" under the start menu points to. How do i restore it? I recently installed windows 7 professional over windows vista home premium. A windows. Old folder was created on my hard drive which stored all my previous files. Once the installation was complete, i moved all of my files back to where they should be. However, my program files (c:program files and c:program files (x86)) were not showing up in the "all programs" list under the start menu.

So in an attempt to remedy this, i opened the "all programs" folder by right-clicking on it, right-clicked the programs folder, then on the properties tab changed the location target to point to c:program files. Unfortunately, this did produce the desired results. Each program folder lists all sub-folders and files associated with that program (not just a shortcut to the program itself).

So how do i restore it back to the way it was? The original programs folder is no longer there. Also, if you know of the right way to have my programs appear in the "all programs" list under the start menu, that would be much appreciated.

Bug - Bsd On Target Host When Connecting To Win7 Shares

When connecting to a network share on a windows 7 professional host, the target host (server) immediately blue-screens. This behavior is repeatable and consistent.

Scenario:

Two windows 7 professional hosts were tested. One host had a fresh load using the hp standard image. The second host had a fresh load using the microsoft retail dvd. Both hosts are members of a windows server 2003 r2 hosted activedirectory domain running in native mode. Default network settings are used on both hosts, obtaining ipv4 addresses via dhcp. Domain administrative accounts were used in all scenarios.

Tests were performed in the following manner:

1) windows 7 professional client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
2) windows 7 professional client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.
3) windows xp client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
4) windows xp client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.

In all scenarios, the target windows 7 professional host immediately blue-screens. This behavior could be duplicated 100% of the time.

Problem Adding A Favorite Directly To Target Folder Selected

I just upgraded to ie 8, and i'm experiencing an irritating problem when having to add several websites to the same target sub-folder in my favorites. Maybe i've been spoiled by the convenience of an older version of internet explorer where the "add a favorite" pop-up would automatically be set to the subfolder that i had selected when adding another related website prior to the one at hand. I'm talking about the folder displayed where it says "create in".

That was a great function, because usually if i'm searching some information on a subject i want to add interesting websites one by one to the folder that i've specified for that subject. It's a time saver when the target folder is already set to the one that you've justset it towith your most recent add. Otherwise you have to go through all your folders and subfolders again to find the same target folder every time you want to add another website to that folder.

I know it doesn't matter to those people who just have a few folders. But if you use the internet as your own personal encyclopedia, creating folders and sub-folders for all the information that interests you, it's important to be able to navigate through it easily and save information easily in the right order and place. So my question is if there is any way i can enable that function by changing some settings perhaps? And how can i do that? Now it's just always set to the default folder"favorites".

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Tp-link Tl-wn951n 64-bit Issue

I have just purchased the tp-link wn951n wireless pci card to upgrade from my old adapter and have encountered a problem when trying to install the driver. I have been to the tp-link website and tried all of the available drivers that they have listed for windows 7, i have also tried installing an atheros driver as when i have been searching through google i found that it uses an atheros chipset.

The drivers that i have tried appear to install although i get a warning when first installing that it might not be compatible and the driver says that it is installed and working but i cannot see any wireless networks.

When i click on the diagnose button it goes through it's process and then tells me that there is a driver problem still. In the device manager it says that the device is working properly and in the network connections section if i double click on the icon it reports that it is connected at 412. 3gbps which is confusing in itself but when i click on the details tab to see the state of the connection both of the property and value tabs are blank also i have had no error codes that may help in the diagnosis so sorry about that.

Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab

The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?

D-link Wbr-2310 Wireless Will Not Connect

I have a new sony vaio with windows 7 installed. It will not connect with my home network. I can connect wireless to other networks (i've tried at wifi hotspots in coffee shops and at my work). I have checked that my router (d-link model wbr-2310) is compatible with windows 7 on the companies website and it says it is already compatible. I have updated both the atheros wireless network adapter and the ms virtual wifi miniport adapter. Another help forum suggested disabling the ms virtual miniport adapter, which i tried, and this does not work.

Error 734 - The Ppp Link Terminated

I am trying to connect to the net with my cellphone via usb with dun in win 7. I have used 3 different phones sony ericsson, samsung, htc and used 3 different sim cards from different operators on each of these phones. I have followed each of the operators config instructions to the t. But with all of them i keep getting the same error 734: ppp link terminated. Going through the forums, this seems to be a widespread problem with many users and although the ms tech kb has resolution for this error for xp, w23k etc, there seems to be n resolution for it in win7 so far. Most questions for win7 seem to have reached a dead end with every mvp support. Obviously it is something to do with win7 - a bug maybe? Pl ms can we have you look seriously into this issue and resolve it asap?
