Back IE7 Window grabbing focus.

  leedaz 15:30 03 Mar 2007

Got a very irritating problem I can't solve. If I have 2 IE7 windows open, and I'm reading the front one, the other just appears in front with the address bar highlighted in blue. Also the page refresh click noise accompanies this behaviour. I then need to click the taskbar to get my original window back. Also If I have just 1 window open, the turns blue as though the page was being refreshed. Any Ideas?

Is this for all sites or is it for sites which auto refresh, eg the BBC football results?

Also do you mean windows or tabs?

Hi anskyber, It's all sites and in the window not the tab, I've just been looking around internet options, and on General- Browsing History-Settings button there is an option to check for newer version of stored pages, Which was set to automatically, I've just changed it to 'every time I visit the webpage' see if that does anything. Will have a surf round and report back.

Still happening, it's the click in the background denoting that the page is refreshing its self although it doesn't actually refresh, it just pops up in my face! Will try a restart and see if that helps after changing that setting. Been full of cold last few days and feeling a bit lousy,so If I don't get back for a day or two, apologies, but any help greatly welcomed.
