    INTERNET EX TABS MISSBEHAVING ---- PLEASE HELP

    Can someone help - for days now IE wont let me open a second tab. It tries and fails and then crashes and closes the original tab! I don't know what to do.

    I was thinking about unistalling it and starting again via firefox.

    What do you think?

    Thanks in adavance

    P.s Sorry for SHOUTING!

    Try re installing...

    Should work!

    Not sure, I use firefox with an IE button for changing tabs to IE (only use occasionally for sites that run better on IE)

    Im worried about loosing my fav if i reinstall. I transfered them to my laptop and they were in a different order and so could find anything - sad face!

    sounds like a plan

    If you download firefox it will transfer your favourites over for you

    Thanks for the reassurance. Just had a thought, what would happen if I didn't unistall, and then downlad IX - would it just update what was already there without the risk of loosing everything?

    backup your favourites first via EXPORT command

    Gave up on IE and moved to Avant.

    Thanks for your advice guys. I tried to reinstall but with no luck! i think, with this and a few other problems, it maybe time to invest in a new pc - poor phd student - any ideas?

    Good idea - but - Oh very scared - I'm a 4th year phd student - couldn't bear the consequences of loosing more than 4 years research!

    TBH: Teh whole thing is soooooo noisey, it wont play any sound from youtube or most other sites - only thing it will play is from Windows media player! With the tabs situation, when it crashes, it aslo crashes any other IX window that are open - leaving me with a days worth of bits a pieces missing!

    Should I buiy a new P.C ?
