I am having trouble following links on web pages. sometimes I get to the page I need, but most of the time it doesn't work. I then have to copy and paste the shortcut address into the address bar at the top of the page. Have I got something set up wrong? Any ideas?
Thanks for your response, difarn. I'm using IE9. I tried your link and had to access it by copy & paste. I ran the Reset Internet Explorer Setting Fix-it and restarted my PC. Your 'fix-it' link now responds when I click on it but I only get an empty new tab. Can you think of anything else I should do?
Hi difan, thanks for the suggestions, but none of them seem to work. I'm not running any add-ons; I can't load IE8 as I'm running Windows 7 (64-bit) and that's not one of the recommended versions for IE8; I've tried to download Firefox, but for some reason the 'Run or Save' pop-up doesn't appear, so it won't download it. You mention lots of articles about the same problem, would you point me to any of them, please.
You can run IE8 - you would have been running this before IE9. I too still have it with Win 7 64-bit. It maybe that your profile has somehow become corrupted. Most people are still using IE8 at present because of problems with IE9. It is strange that you cannot download Firefox - I don't suppose it appears in your downloads folder?
The first thing to try is to roll back to IE8.
As for links - if you type in "unable to open links in IE9" you will get many articles.
Many thanks for your help, difan. Now got IE8 (after a bit of trouble working out how to delete IE9, rather than turn it off), and have downloaded Firefox. Links still not quite right in IE8, but work a treat in Firefox. It's much faster that IE, pity I wasn't introduced to it earlier. I think I'll stay with it! Once again, thanks for your patience.
