Don't know if it's just me me but when I hover over a link with the mouse, the 'message' in the bottom left hand corner is different than it used to be.

If I hover hover a BBC link for example it would give me some information relating to the story, for example, the area that is involved . Now all it tells me is'shortcut to 4662002.stm' for example when I hover over the 'Three bid for Golden Wonder' click here story at the bottom left.

IE, Tools|Internet Options, Advanced tab. Untick 'Show friendly URLs'.

I just haven't got a clue how it got 'ticked' because I've never even been into that tab!
