What's happened to the web 'loading' indication?

  Charlie Babbage 22:11 29 Jun 2005

Until recently, most web pages that I viewed had at the bottom a small oval box inside of which were green dots that indicated how far the page had loaded. AS I still have a dial up PAYG internet connection, I found this very helpful. It also quickly showed if the page had stopped loading for some reason and I could try presseing the 'refresh' button'

This indicator now seems to have disappeared. I'm running IE v 6.0 and Windows XP Professional. Any suggestions as to how to get the indicator back will be appreciated.

1) With (only one) IE open, click View, select: Status Bar

2) Right-click on IE's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbars"

3) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

4) Open WINDOWS Explorer, click View, select: Status Bar

5) Right-click on Explorer's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbar"

6) Click Tools | Folder Options | View tab
7) Click the "Apply to all folders" button. (Click OK if this gives you another dialogue question)

8) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

9) Reopen IE to any page, right-click on a link and select: "Open in New Window" The Status Bar should remain visible.
