Ie8 Not Working


Until friday night ie8 was fine. Now it won't do anything. I've uninstalled, reinstalled, spybot scanned, ccleaned, uninstalled, reinstalled, followed numerous links to different 'help' pages on microsoft, tried a one care scan (but that won't work because my other browser is chrome). I can't do that run ie no add ons thing because it isn't there to click. I did get to the "cannot display this page. " Once in safe mode but that's all.

There is nothing wrong with my connection on virgin cable because every other program requiring internet works fine. I don't use any third party toolbars because my netbook screen would be impossible to use (it's hard enough now). Desperate for a solution as work on my websites is stacking up and i need to get into office live to update.

Win 7 64-bit Doesn't Distinguish Between Ie8 64-bit And Ie8 32-bit

Windows 7 64bit doesn't distinguish between ie8 64 bit and ie8 32 bit when attempting to set a default browser using the control panel default programs 'associate' utility. My new windows 7 64 bit pc (luv that i7 920 intel cpu) came installed with both ie8-64 bit and ie8-32 bit (nothing more need be said regarding the absurdity of having to deal with this in the first place - i should have gone with the imac).

Anyway, ie64 bit lacks the flash player cuz adobe hasn't released a 64 bit version yet, per their website. So i can't use ie64 with xm online music stream (et al). Ie32, on the other hand, supports flash player, but won't successfully link to various embedded hypertext links, such as those embedded in an email. My initial solution was to use firefox, which served me well until an application from a local vendor will only work with internet explorer. Sigh.

I've used windows since version 2 back in the 1980s, have become stoic, and can emotionally cope with having to use 3 browsers to get the job done.

However, just for fun, my current burning question is, with two different versions of ie8 (64 bit and 32 bit) installed into windows 7, why doesn't the control panel default applications utility seem to aware of the fact that there are indeed two different versions installed? It lists firefox and internet explorer, but does not differentiate between the two flavors of ie. My goal was to set ie8 64 bit as the default browser temporarily to accommodate the vendor's application.

Fyi, by setting the default, i refer to: control panel | default programs | associate a file type or protocol with a program. Then scroll down to 'http' and click on the change program button. So in my case, firefox and only one instance of internet explorer, with no bit distinction, display as selection options.

Flashing When Use Ie8

There appears to be some instability with ie8 when i browse since i have loaded windows 7 rc. I also think that the problem may have started when i did a deletion of temp files and old vista files. I really love the new windows 7 rc so far especially compared to windows vista ultimate. Also, what is available for the new windows touch as far a hardware and will i need anything else to accompany it that is not included in windows 7 rc? My computer is a dell lattitude 131l with a athelon 64 bit processor.

What is the real differences or advantages with the 32 bit and the processors and the 64 bit processor? Which should i really use? I have both rc copies on separate disks with their product key so either one can be installed.

Ie8 Will Not Start

I have installed ie8 two times and get the same experience, click on explorer to start and it does not even start, go to task manager and it says it is not responding, check process tab and there are multiple instances running of the following app dumpreg.exe, and the performance tab for cpu is at 100%. I am a dummy when it coes to these things, and everything i have read is about ie8 hanging up after it is in use, my problem is after tow installs and reinstalls it won't even open.

Ie8 Crashing Tabs

Im running windows 7 on a standard machine, with ie 8 obviously but just the last couple of days when i start up ie it closes and then says its recovered a tab and give the same code in the address-bar "res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#, " and it will do this every 5 seconds and then it will keep adding "res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#, " to what ever is in the address bar, so if ope ie 8 and i leave it for half a minute it gives me "res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#, res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#, about:blank" don't know what went wrong.

Ie8 Graphics Trails

After installing ie8 on several different pcs, i have notice after the installation, when moving or dragging an object on the desktop, it leaves a trail or solid sillohete of the object.

I didn't think much of it and thought it maybe an issue with the old pcs. But no. I just purchased the latest, brand new, asus eeepc 1002ha, logged straight on to the net and began updating, including ie8, as soon as it restarts the graphics trail begins.

This is really really annoying and i have not found a solution other then uninstalling ie8 all together, which fixes the problem straight away. This is ridiculous. With sp3 and windows 7 now, i thought these type of stupid issues were gone for good.

If anyone has any possible solution please inform me. All drivers and software are upto date. No third party software or non genuine installed. Brand new out of the box straight onto a wifi network and update causes the problem.

Ie8 Memory Leak

I recently upgraded to ie8 and after a few minutes of browsing i receive a message that my computer is low on memory. When i check task manager there are at least two instances of iexplorer running, although i have only one browser window open with multiple tabs. Each instance of iexplorer is using upwards of 40, 000 k, my computer then starts to act up slowing down everything. I do not get this problem when running other browsers (google chrome), and didn't have it with ie7. Any suggestions?

Memory Leak In Ie8

I'm on xp professional sp3. I have 2gb ram. I installed ie8 a couple of months ago, and love it, except for one thing. I watch video online at netflix. Since installing ie8, in as little as an hour, the video cuts off and i receive a message (from netflix) that there isn't enough memory to continue. I can close the browser and open a new session, and go back in, but that's a big pain right in the middle of everything.

After one such instance i looked in task manager, and saw that ie was using a ridiculous amount of memory, with 1, 403, 828k listed on one line, and 14, 320k on another, though only one browser window was open.

I have 249gb free on my hard drive, at present. I checked the virtual memory when this problem first occurred and switched it to allow the system to manage the size. It has 2045 mb allocated for the paging file (though the recommended amount is 3067 mb), and this does not seem to change, even with the out-of-memory errors on netflix; it remains at 2045.

The interesting thing is that i did not have this problem with ie7, though i hear it had more problems with memory leakage. I have also tried watching the netflix videos in firefox, and do not have memory problems there (after 2 hours, it only used ~150, 000k), so it isn't a netflix issue. Nor have i experienced any other problems with ie 8 or memory; only when watching videos online at netflix.

I've tried looking up info generally on the internet, but only find a lot of developer info on detecting leaks; nothing about how to fix this (at least that i can understand or am willing to do on my own).

Graphics Not Showing In Ie8

I just installed a laptop and a desktop for a client both have windows 7. The desktop has no problems, however the laptop does not show all pictures. I have checked the tools and advanced options and pictures are checked to be shown. For example from yahoo's main page , yahoo sites the text is shown but the none of the icons are shown.

Under the today section the picture is displayed correctly. If i goto advance options and remove the check box to show pictures, the picture is not shown (in other words this works as it is supposed to). Also all the boxes around each section are dark black where on the desktop they are a light grey. Any suggestions?

Flash Problem With Ie8

I have a problem with i.e. 8 on my vista ultimate 32bit pc, and the odd web site where the flash content is only partially interactive. By this i mean that some flash controls on the page will work, while others will not.

I have contacted the support team for the main site this is happening on (emusic.com) who have advised me to do the following:

1. Clear your cache and cookies
2. Try using a different web browser (internet explorer, firefox, safari)
3. Try connecting with a different computer (at work, a friend, another computer in the house)
4.connect directly to your cable modem if you are using a router (bypass the router)
5. Disable any firewall you may be using to see if it will go through

I have also tried adding the site to the trusted list, and ensuring that activex controls are allowed to run in the advanced section.

This problem has persisted through i.e. 7 and i.e. 8 on windows vista and windows xp pro sp3. All my machines are fully patched (i run secunia psi regularly). I don't know what else to try to fix this problem. If anyone has any suggestions i would very much like to hear them.

Ie8 Not Running Flashpayer 10

Flash player stopped working after installed a patch for ie 8. Ie 8 shows the flash player 10 as being installed into ie 8 on youtube. But not opening player. Also activex stopped working on down loads for flashplayer 10 and my hp printer stopped with ie 8 ? Had to down load a zip flash player 10 to load it. I removed all old flash payers before reinstalling new 10. I am using apple safari with no problem on the internet. So whats up with ie 8. I removed it and reinstalled it. With no fix. Also tried going back to and older back-up file. Windows vista 64 ultimate keeps saying missing files and never reloads to older windows program at start up ?

Iframe Errors With Ie8

We access a https site that uses extensive iframes. Since going to ie 8 we are finding that the iframes often will display the following error "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". Has anyone else out there had this problem?

Regardless, can anyone point me to a solution? I have do a lot of internet searches including technet and only find a lot of references to similar problems. Thus farwe have tried various comp modes, added it to trusted sites and we have fully patched ie.

Edit Html In Ie8

I build a site with google sites, i am the owner of this site, the text, data, photo's. Are all uploaded. Now i'd like to edit the html but when i choose display source i get a non editable 'notepad like' screen. I tried to open the site by clicking the menu bar and choose edit/open with notepad. This way it opens notepad which i can edit but there are no line numbers, the html code seems editable but looks like there's no beginning and no and. Pasting code in this screen looks a bit of a lucky shot. I copied a bit code so you can see what i mean;

(C, 1);break}};h. Jot_removealllistenersforname=function(b){for(var c=0;c
My question is; how can i edit my html using notepad/ ie8 (i believe editing html in ie7 was possible using notepad)my os; windows vista build 6. 0, service pack 1 ie 8

Email Client In Ie8

I was wondering on a fresh clean install of windows 7 build 7100 with default settings (nothing altered or changed) ie: no other programs installed except the drivers for the hardware etc. How would someone go about choosing the email client. I will explain a little more. When clicking in a link in a website to sent them an email a box pops up with this message.

Could not perform this operation because the default email client is not properly installed.

Ie8 Freezes In Taskbar

When i start ie8 the icon opens in the bottom taskbar, but the window does not open. If i click with the left mouse on the icon that opened on the bottom task-bar the window still does not open. There is no error message. The right mouse click does not bring anything neither. When i want to close it with the task manager it tells me "program does not react* a check with ms fix it does not show any mistakes. I have reinstalled and installed ie8 several times with no improvement. I tried to reinstall ie7 but with no success.

Even i have thoroughly taken of ie8 with uninstaller it tells me ie7 can not be installed because there is a newer version installed. I'm using xp professional with service pack 3. The only browser working at the moment is safari. I tried opera which worked at the begin but after a few times opening and closing the same problem as with ie8 appeared.

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?

Ie8 Windows Update

Windows7; 32bit; ie8 today, 3/24/10, the windows update; "update for internet explorer 8 compatibility view list for w7 (kb980302)" was installed on my pc.

Many of the websites i go to on a regular basis following the install of this update display much larger than prior to the update. So much so that i must scroll left to right to view a page. I am using a 22" monitor with the resolution set at 1680x1050. Which is the highest setting i can select, and, its the recommended setting. I have turned off compatibility view and tried changing the text size. Which i have now set at smallest but the web-pages are still much larger than before the update was installed. Seems to me microsoft messed up this one big time.

This compatibility update of course did not affect anything else other than the browser display.
Anyone else notice this change after installing this update kb980302? I don't understand why microsoft would release a compatibility update which is supposed to enhance the display of web-pages under ie8 and yet this update really in my situation, made it worse. I guess i could use system restore to go back to a point prior to this install but is there just away to un-install a kb update?

Java Compatibility With Ie8

Suddenly when i access a chat forum that i've been using for some time it tells me that it "requires a java compatible web browser to run" i am not aware that any settings have changed. On the tools/internet options/advanced tab the java (sun) box is ticked as before. The tools/internet options/ security is set to medium as before. I have checked that java is still installed on my pc, and when i tried to download it again it told me that it was already installed. Any thoughts as to what i can try next?

Favorites Not Working In Ie8

I have an hp pavillion running vista. Recently the "favorites" feature stopped working. All my bookmarks are still listed but they do not work (and the little icons before the text are now just empty boxes). If i try and add a favorite, it won't be added. I have not added any new programs that i am aware of. Favorites just suddenly stopped working. The favorites folder still exists in my users directory. The registry address is %userprofile%. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled ie 8. I have reset it. I have run it without add ons. I have scanned the computer for viruses using norton 360. Nothing has worked.

Ie8 Is Not Working With Java

I have windows 7. My ie8 is not working on java enabled site. But while using firefox, java starts and work fine. At the same time, under 'manage add-on's java is listed and says enabled. I have the latest version of sun java installed. What i noticed is, java applet is not listed under this category. I could see many people written about this java applet problem in this forum.

So i doubt if that is the issue. I have done all other trouble shooting steps like, security, privacy options, uninstall and re install and even disable antivirus, user account control, windows firewall installed. But nothing helps. Since the site works with firefox, it is sure about ie 8 issue.

Ie8 - Cannot Email Hyperlink

I am in the process of trying to fix a problem with sounds on my home pc. I'm running w7 ultimate (32 bit) with all patches (including the infamous "bsod" one). In the course of diagnosing the problem, one suggestion was to reset ir8 to the defaults (tools/internet options/advanced). Most all the resulting changes i expected. However, one i can't get around. If i try to use the "send link via e-mail" function, i get the message:

"Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request. Please run microsoft office outlook and set it as the default" i checked and every place i can look, outlook is the default and the pop3 account is defaulted as the sender. Any ideas where to look? Is it ie or outlook?

Ie8 Refresh Trouble

I am using windows 7 and ie8, all currently updated. I've developed a website that works fine in firefox and worked fine in ie8 until a few days ago. Now when i open it in ie8, all i see is the html code, as though ie8 isn't handling the encoding appropriately. But, if i select view > refresh, the code goes away and my website appears, looking great! Also, if i select view > encoding, it is already set to unicode (utf-8), which is appropriate for my website.

But similar to "refresh", i can reclick the view > encoding > unicode (utf-8) - which is already selected - and the website appears. And no, it doesn't make a difference if the view > encoding > auto-select feature is checked or not. Please, can someone smarter than myself explain why a refresh is required to view the site?

Ie8 Start Up Error

Recently (as in the last 7-10 days) i receive the following message after boot up when launching ie8: "your last browsing session closed unexpectedly. I am given the choice of re-opening my last session or going to my home page. This only happens the first time i launch ie8 after booting up. I have tried most of the common fixes such as reset ie8, delete browsing history, delete hashed values from registry (.microsoft/internet explorer/recovery/active) all to no avail.

I also tried to disable all ie8 add-ons. When i went through tools/internet options/programs it didn't work. When i tried starting ie8 via start/all programs/accessories/ie (no add-ons), it worked like a champ. Clearly some add-on is still running but i can't see where.

I am running windows 7 on a fujitsu life book a1130, intel duel core, 4 gb of ram.

Office 2007
Norton internet security 2010
Norton utilities 14
Adobe reader 9
Adobe air
Adobe flash
Roxio creator
Cyberlink make disk
Cyberlink power director

As i mentioned, i tried disabling all add-on's but i think i am missing something.

Any ideas?

Error Installing Ie8

I used ie for years. Then, my computer started missing keystrokes when on a web page. I installed firefox and the problem disappeared. I would now like to try ie 8 to see if the problem still exists, but when i try to install, i get a message "newer version already installed" and it won't continue. I went to add/remove programs and it does not show up. Then i searched for "iexplore.exe and erased all occurrences, but the ie 8 installer still thinks ie is out there. How can i get back to ie without reformatting my system?

Ie8 Opening Tabs

I was recently installed ie8 on my laptop, which i had avoided due to my dislike of the tab group system, but since (to my knowledge) ie7 doesn't have browser recovery i was fed up with it crashing and causing me to lose my entire session. So i installed ie8, figuring i could probably disable tab groups in the settings or something, and i was pleasantly surprised that i could. However i found that once i had disabled tab groups, whenever i open a new tab it opens at the far end of the currently open tabs.

When i open a new tab with groups on though, it opens up any new tab at the far end of the group, which is only slightly less annoying. I liked how in ie7 any new tab was opened next to the tab it was opened from, instead of at the far end of all currently open tabs. So i want to know if it is possible to replicate these settings in ie8, or if i should just switch back to ie7.

Ie8 Opening Links

I upgraded to ie8 recently and links do not open in the same way as they did before for a website that i use frequently. On this website, i go to a page that has a bunch of stocks listed. Each listed stock is a link and, if you click on a listed stock, it opens a new page with a detailed quote that is displayed as a relatively small window (which you can enlarge to a full page if you want in the normal manner). Before installing ie8, if i clicked on another link (i.e. , A second link) from the list on the original webpage, the info would be displayed by replacing the first linked web page.

However, after installing ie8, every time a click on a new link it opens a new web page. Hence, if i keep clicking on the links on the original page that has the list of stocks, i will end up with more and more web pages being opened. How do i change the ie8 settings such that every time i click on a link on the original page (with the list of stock links) it replaces the previous linked page instead of adding a new web page?

Ie8 Does Not Allow Opening Links

I purchased my laptop with windows 7 and ie8 already loaded, i have not been able to access any link that's not on the same domain - ie8 refuses to do anything. Sometime a green bar at the bottom of the screen will make it look like it is doing something but the green bar disappears and i am still where i started. (Can't open in tab, can't open in new window, won't go in same window). Can keep clicking it but nothing happens. This includes links in my windows live e-mails.

I can copy the shortcut, paste it in the address bar, and continue, but is starting to get annoying. Any ideas?

Note: same domain everything seems to work fine, just when accessing other web-pages does this happen. (Or at least that's when i've noticed it)
