Browser problem

  Chas49 22:56 01 Jan 2010

I am using Windows 7 OS and have a problem - alsmost certainly caused by something I did when I copied the PC Advisor address across from the address bar in Firefox 3.5.6 to the line beneath so that a simple click would get me to this site faster.

Now, when I click on that link PC Advisor appears in the left hand column of the browser leaving the home page on the larger right hand side. Clicking a link of that abbreviated PC Advisor makes the site appear on the right and you have to delete that in the leftg, whereupon the whole of page is shown properly.

A trivial problem, but annoying nevertheless!

I don't have Win 7, but perhaps you could do a System Restore back to before you made that change.

I thought that I would delete the link that I had copied across to the line beneath the address bar and then make the link a second time. It appears that my thinking that I had done something to cause the problem was correct. The deletion and then the remake has solved the problem I'm glad to say.

May I wish a belated 'Happy New Yaer' to all forumn members.
