Internet Explorer confusion.

Right, this is becoming a challenge now!  It's got to be something to do with the cookie, or cache.  Try clearing the cookies and cache from IE and also from FF, Kate.  To clear from FF, go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies (Tab) > Clear Cookies Now (Button).  Restart FF and go to http://pc-pals.com/forum/index.php.  If that's not the link in your Bookmarks, then update your Bookmark entry, as it may have imported an older link from IE, but that's very doubtful, as you haven't been here that long.  You will also need to enable pop ups in FF for PC Pals, so that you can receive PM notifications.  To do this, go to Tools > Content where the Block Pop Up Windows box should be ticked.  Next to it, click the Allowed Sites button, and enter pc-pals.com, then click Allow.  By the way, you don't need the http://www part of the address, and this also applies to the allow cookies box, in case you didn't realise.  Might be best to check that, in case it's not saving the cookie like it should do.


Ok done all that and guess what it works.
But that has been the case before, the test will be when I try it again tommorrow. Maybe I should just reboot now and see if it is still working.

I also deleted the bookmarks I had for it and replaced them with the new one and I have rebooted and it's all good.
Thanks Simon :D

THIS is what the beta testers say about the new version Misty.  I had no difficulty logging in with FF but I prefer to use a relatively unknown browser called Avant.  It's based on IE but looks more like FF and Simon takes the p**s out of me for using it.   :wink:


Avant is probably safer than both of them Clive. :wink:

Are you the only one using Avant, Clive.?  I might give it a try.

How is it for privacy?

Surely, if Avant is using the IE engine, any vulnerabilities in IE would also be present in Avant?

umm, probably.. but the question is is it using the IE engine or just emulating it? Also the core of IE might be fine just the rest! lol

Simon is correct.  Avant is just a tarted up IE which must have all the same vulnerabilities.  :cry:

umm thats odd.. ebuyer normally works fine for me... though it is always rather slow.


You're correct Sam, it's only when I go to the checkout I have to change to IE. I always just use IE now when I go to ebuyer and it works much faster.


Is it a Paypal issue Lona, if so I came across this in the Mozilla Add-ons.
Might be useful. :wink:

No, Misty, I have no problems paying by paypal using Firefox.

I do have problems on Egg.com though and can only view my other bank accounts if I use IE.  

A message comes up on Egg saying to have access through Egg to your other accounts you require IE.
