Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

IE slowdown When navigating in a web site, THE NEW YORK TIMES, for example, IE has slowed down considerably. Used to shift almost immediately between windows but now it seems to go through a long loading process with each shift. I've cleaned the cache, eliminated cookies, etc, but nothing helps.

Firefox is a very popular web browser that enables you to search and navigate the web. It allows you to run a number of components, such as toolbars, download managers and video players, to enhance your browsing experience. However, you can run into occasional display problems and crashes that require some troubleshooting. With some simple guidelines, repair common Firefox problems and improve your browser.

Print or write these directions down before proceeding. Close down Firefox and click the Windows Start menu on the desktop. Select "All Programs" and navigate to the "Mozilla Firefox" folder. Click "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" in the folder. This launches Mozilla Firefox Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, you can repair Firefox issues. Select the areas you want to repair on the "Safe Mode" window. For example, select "Reset toolbars and controls" if you want to remove third-party toolbars. Select "Disable add-ons" if you want to disable plug-ins such as download managers. Click the "Make Changes and Restart" button to repair the web browser. Restart your web browser normally after you complete the repair process. Step 5. Uninstall and reinstall Firefox if you are still having problems with it. To do so, go to the Mozilla Firefox download page and click "Free Download" (see Below). http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ie.html When prompted, click "Save" and save the browser installation file on your desktop. Click the Windows Start menu and click "Control Panel." Double-click "Add or Remove Programs" to launch the programs list if you are using Windows XP. For Windows Vista and 7 users, launch the programs list by clicking "Programs" and clicking "Programs and Features." Click "Firefox" and click "Remove/Uninstall" to remove the web browser from your computer. Double-click the Firefox installation file you downloaded in Step 5 and click "Run" to reinstall the web browser on your computer.

Tip

Browse websites faster


Here are no-cost ways to fine-tune DNS for faster browsing.

There's a simple way you can get to Web sites faster, and it won't cost you a penny. You can change the way your PC uses the Domain Name System (DNS), the technology underlying all Web browsing.

Before you start, it's a good idea to get a basic understanding of how DNS works. When you type in a URL such as www.example.com, that URL needs to be translated into a numeric IP address that Web servers and Internet routers can understand. When you type in a URL, a DNS server does the translation, from www.example.com to 208.77.188.166, for example.

An often used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses. For example, www.example.com translates to 208.77.188.166.

DNS servers live on the Internet, and your computer contacts them with the request to do that translation, which is commonly called name resolution. When you use an ISP, your computer will automatically use the default DNS servers specified by your ISP; you typically don't need to set up DNS in any way. If you're on a corporate network, your systems administrator may have set you up to use specific DNS servers.

If there's a delay in contacting the DNS server, or if the DNS server takes too much time resolving the address, you'll face a delay in getting to a Web site. So even if you've got the world's fattest pipe, your Web surfing will be slowed down.

If you could speed up the name resolution in some way, you'd be able to speed up your Web surfing. And that's exactly what I'll show you how to do.

When I open Internet explorer or any web sites on IE they appear


TIPS:
The default behavior for IE is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed.
While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent.

Try the following workaround.
Open a single IE window to the smaller size.
Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen.
Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed,
and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar.
Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

What is XSS filter in IE 8 ??


XSS is Cross Site Scripting.
XSS vulnerabilities enable an attacker to control the relationship between a user and a web site or web application that they trust. Cross-site scripting can enable attacks such as:
  • Cookie theft, including the theft of sessions cookies that can lead to account hijacking

  • Monitoring keystrokes input to the victim web site / application

  • Performing actions on the victim web site on behalf of the victim user. For example, an XSS attack on Windows Live Mail might enable an attacker to read and forward e-mail messages, set new calendar appointments, etc.
IE 8's filter shuts down this vulnerability.

Performance problems/slowdown wtih Internet Explorer 8?!?


Hi,
IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.

To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.

You can also try Google Chrome browser which is one of the fastest browser. Download link: http://www.google.com/chrome

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO AOL, MSN, COMPUSERVE AND SBC ISP USERS:
If you are using the built-in browser provided by your ISP, you will NOT see My Mail Signature or your toolbar. They do not work with the built-in browser. Instead, you MUST:

1) Launch Internet Explorer 5.01 or above from your desktop. (Don't have it? Download here.)
2) Find your browser toolbar - it will have either a "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" logo.
To use My Mail Signature in email: My Mail Signature works with Outlook, Outlook Express, AOL Mail 9.0, IncrediMail (using IE 5.5 or above), and with most web-based email platforms (using IE 5.01 or above), including the rich-text Editor version of MSN Hotmail. (To learn more, click here.)

How do I know if my version of My Mail Signature is compatible with Outlook or Outlook Express?

To check that My Mail Signature is compatible with your Outlook or Outlook Express email platform, you will need to do the following:

1) Open a new browser (Internet Explorer 5.01 and above only).

2) Locate your browser toolbar - it will have either a "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" logo - and click the down arrow to the immediate right of the My Web Search/My Way Search logo (far left side of the toolbar).

3) Select "My Web Search Version" or "My Way Search Version". A small window should appear with the version of your toolbar. Check that it says Version: 1, 1, 1, 0 or higher. (Click here to see a picture)

I use Norton Internet Security, Zone Alarm, or similar firewall/proxy software and am having trouble downloading My Mail Signature. Why?

The most common problem when downloading or installing My Mail Signature occurs when running such software. If you are running one of these types of products, try temporarily disabling it, then go back to http://www.mymailsignature.com to try the download process again. You can reactivate your firewall/proxy software once the download and installation of the toolbar and My Mail Signature is complete.

Why can't I see My Mail Signature - or the toolbar - on my browser?


If you have downloaded My Mail Signature and are not seeing the My Signature button or the toolbar on your browser, you may need to enable the toolbar through your browser's menu. To do this:
1) Click on the "View" menu option.
2) Select "Toolbars".
3) You will see either "My Web Search" or "My Way Search" listed in the dropdown - make sure that there is a check mark next to it. If there is no check mark, click on the toolbar name in order to enable it.

If the toolbar DOES have a check mark but is not visible on your browser, clear the check mark by clicking on the name of the toolbar. Then repeat the steps above to re-enable it. The toolbar should now appear.

Firefox or IE I've been using IE for ever, lately I've been hearing a lot about Firefox, and thought I might try it, what are the main advantages of Firefox, over IE? What do you prefer Firefox or IE?...


The user interface on the two browser is very similar.

Firefox is considered 'more powerful' because is more customisable, and you can download many extensions, that are plugins with many functions.

Firefox suffer less from virus problem, as there are more viruses designed to attack IE, however majority of viruses do not make any difference between IE, Firefox, Opera etc.

Internet explorer is more unstable and crashes more easily.

Sometimes new plugins (extension) can make Firefox slower.

Sometimes new download updates can make IE slower.

The two browsers are both good, and both work fine on most situation. I personally use Firefox, as it gives me less troubles with Windows.

My suggestion is : download and install Firefox, if you do not like it, then switch back to IE.

You can use both browsers at the same time.
