You got a new computer, means you probably got a new IE.. most likely IE 7. whatever.... I am not a fan, but we will have to get used to it.
Rick has a good point and on that I use in my IE 6 and in FireFox. I have a primary home page which is Rudi's Farmall Cubs
. One of the features in IE 6 and better is the FireFox style tabbed browsing. Follow the instructions in IE 7 to make each successive tab's homepage as part of your initialization routine for IE. Pretty simple.. Tool, - Internet Options, - Tabs -- follow the prompts. Then once that is open, I hit the Open All My Tabs button and the rest:
- Farmall Cub Forum Index,
- my eBay summary,
- then International House of Cubs,
- then a couple more like my on-line email account so I can eliminate all the spam and stuff before it gets downloaded to my Outlook Express client.
However, one of the reasons why you may be getting a problem with loading http://www.farmallcub.com
into IE and everything else is ok, is that there may be a problem with the cookies. To fix that, open IE and then
- In IE 6 or 7 Click Tools
- Internet Options
- Delete Cookies
- Delete Files
- Delete History
- Click OK.
- Close IE, then restart IE
This should clear all the corrupt data including that which is stored in the virtual ram area. When you reopen, start adding the tabbed data. It will make your browsing experience more enjoyable.
I have been using Tabs for about 2 or 3 years now.. I like it a lot...
