im using ie8 and back and forth it wont open links in other windows

or at times wont load the page from fav

or it may not open when it starts

shut it all down and try agan and its the same, shut it all done and try again and maybe the third or fouth time it works fine

no reason as it works fine like it does the now

is this a current issue or just me!

any ideas

Go to the tools menu and choose internet options on IE8 and then from the window that appears, check yours against the picture I have shown in the below link of my IE8.

no my one didnt have the third box ticked
"always switch to new tabs when they are created"

ive done it now and ill see if it helps

was that what you were looking for...?

Yeah I just wondered if altering yours to the same as mine would cure your problem, I don't know if it will though. Its just you mentioned,

'it wont open links in other windows' and I thought my Tabs settings might help you out : )

Or try Tools.Internet Options .Advanced and press reset.That sets IE8 back to its original settings.
