Hi.

I'm having a few problems viewing this forum, IE in OSX dosnt seem to want to display forum topics or muliple page markers so i can only get one page deep in a topic.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so and you found a solution please pass it on.

sometimes I find that the entire contents will not show up when I come to a new page either...

what I find works when IE starts freaking out is just relaunching it...

I wonder if IE, a Microcoughed-based browser, is going to cause so much problems on a Mac forums site...

There could be a conspiracy going around! :)

Reinstall the newest version of IE, that's the only thing I can think of. I'm running the same specs as you and it works fine, so something on the machine is screwy.

resm....yep I *was* using norton, with the privacy control turned on to filter out adds. Looks like it was filtering out the forum threads too :(

So with it turned off all is well again. I think i can set it up to ignore 'ads' from this site or domain, not sure if i can or how but i'll look into it.

Thanks all for you help

Not trying to sound cocky, but how are you viewing these suggestions if you cant view the forum?

Im assuming you are using a 3rd computer (PC), but wanted to ask just to be sure...........

:D

My suggestion: re-install IE

I wondered when someone might ask me that :D

Well i was using IE in classic, thankfully since finding Nortoin was the culprit i can now answer you using IE in 10.

Norton what??? Are you referring to the Firewall software??? I have NSW2 on my TiBook and the only active part of it is NAV. I have found that I didn't need the Firewall software, since I made my home network a closed/private one.

Sorry I should have been a little more precise - its norton internet security that's installed. The one with NAV and Norton Firewall, plus Privacy control.

Basically it was the Ad blocker in the Norton Privacy control part of the package that was causing the problems.

Hope that helps

Have you ever stopped to think that there are people here that DON'T want to use a different browser????

I just attempted to use the lastest non-beta copy (listed as freeware via versiontracker, NOT beta). It has improved some... but has crappy handling of sites with frames.

I will wait for them to get things right before I try again. Frames are a very important feature of web pages with many sites using them. I'd even venture to say that most sites have frames of some sort or another integrated into them. If a browser cannot handle them correctly, then it's not going to stay on any of my systems... That's all there is too it.

As for omniweb, I'm still waiting for them to get it right. I'll give almost any freeware version a shot, as long as it's not listing as a beta.

I had the same problem..

a few weeks ago. There is a old thread here about it. Same solution, turn off Norton Internet Security (add filter).
