Outlook 2007 and Internet Explorer 9

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Hmmmm have noticed that since I've upgraded to IE9, Outlook is continually crashing (and restarting). You can also reproduce the fault by clicking Tools | Trust Center I've tested it on three machines (both 32 and 64 bit) and does it every time. I've done some searches but so far no one at Microsoft seems […]

IE-HTML Summer ’97 Contest

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

It’s Midsummer Night’s eve 2007 and it’s just hit me that it makes it ten years since we took part in the IE-HTML Summer 97 contest.  That was a big milestone for me work-wise – and for us as a family too!  Our eldest daughter was on ‘work experience’ with us in the run up […]

Turn off IE7’s own RSS Feed Page View

Friday, June 1st, 2007

I received an email today from a Vex Visitor who informed me that Yahoo! doesn’t like my Feedburner link and won’t allow him to add my feed to his MyYahoo! content page.  I’ve found various solutions for this one of which involves clicking on the MyYahoo! chicklet on Feedburner’s RSS page. However, if you use […]

IE7 – drag images to view

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

When I posted about how to drag off links to the desktop in IE7 I promised to post any more differences that came to my attention. Here's one ... Sometimes it's handy as a web designer to be able to see an image outside of the webpage in which it is displayed and one of […]

Hide Norton Phishing Filter in IE7

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

Since I’ve been trialing Norton Internet Security 2007 I've run with the phishing filter part of it switched off because it put a big banner across the top of my browser. The banner takes up a lot of screen real estate plus I don’t think I really need it.  (I don’t tend to click on […]

Question: Click to run an ActiveX control??

Friday, November 17th, 2006

A lot of people seem to be wondering what it means when they see "Click to run an ActiveX control on this webpage" or "Click to activate and use this control" being displayed by Internet Explorer on certain web pages: Most people believe that this is a security warning. And when we're confused about what […]

IE7 and Intranets

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Question: I have installed IE7 what happened to my Intranet? Internet Explorer 7 is a whole new ball of wax in many ways.  Some things which we took for granted before are now complex.  One of these, that I suspect is going to particularly irritate corporate users, is the change in how the browser looks […]

My IE7 ‘Bugged’ Day – Run once, Outlook conflict, Hide Search Box

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

Everything I’ve tried to do today has been hampered by Internet Explorer 7 bugs. OK some of them are features rather than bugs, but even so if it messes up your normal workflow it’s still a bug in your day!  And [please excuse my exasperation] it’s been a bugger of a day! IE7 & Outlook 2002 […]

IE 7 tips – Drag off Shortcuts & Opening Tabs at Startup

Friday, November 10th, 2006

This is one change in Internet Explorer 7 that keeps catching me out!  I prefer to store links to pages I’m reading online as shortcuts on my desktop rather than in my favorites, because that way I can keep the link in plain sight and so remember what the heck I was doing! In Internet […]

IE7 doesn’t show HTTP error pages

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

The new "friendly error pages" are something I really don't like about new Internet Explorer 7. My website Hacking GPS is currently down due to a catastrophic server problem (hopefully back sometime tonight) and I’ve been checking it throughout the day to see if it’s back up yet. The trouble with Internet Explorer 7 is […]
