web address flashing in IE6

  lahorie 13:19 07 Dec 2004

Hi All
Just installed sp2 on xp pro.

I've noticed the address i type in IE6 continuously flashes even when the page is fully loaded. It is in the bottom left corner of the web page where it says done when a web page has finished loading. The page loads ok but there is this flashing of the actual web address.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Is this on all sites lahorie? when the page has fully loaded it should say "Done" in the bottom left as you say but there should not be an address on show flashing or static.

Its nothing to do with Accessibility Features is it?

Hi Guys

Djohn, yes this is on all sites. You are right when you say it should say "Done". I end up with this continuous flashing of the web page. Its OK going through AOL but not IE6.

Acolyte, i don'think it's anything to do with the accessibility features but i will check.

This doesn't stop the pages from loading but i would rather see this go away as it is a distraction.

Thanks Guys.

The only other think i can think of is if the page is trying to open popups and they are getting blocked.
