Running xp2, IE6 on a toshiba laptop. When trying to edit my bookmarks in "Organise favourites", the heading under the mouse disappears as I scroll down the list. The hint is still visible, but it's an annoying effect. It only happens in IE, as far as I have noticed. I can't relate the start of it happening to any particular event, so would by glad if anyone else has had it happen, and can advise on the cure.
I'm always amazed at the obscure shortcuts you seem to know. It certainly gives me another editing route, but I am still curious as to what is going on. I did have a look at the "add-ons" that are installed, wondering if any of them are producing the interference, but decided to let them alone. Some time ago a Java thingy appeared unbidden in my system tray, but it then disappeared just as mysteriously. I sometimes wonder what is going on, but then Matron pours me another gin, amd all is well again.
Sans le sou Thanks for link. Yes, I could see what the postings were about even though the details were a bit esoteric, but when I tried......
crx1600 (many thanks for the solution) I recognised the source of the problem. For reasons unclear, my laptop had decided that in this particular window I needed to have the selected text in white on a white background !
Have given the pc a poke where it hurts and told it who is the boss. All text now reads ok. Many thanks to you both.
