IE6 and Blank Windows
BBATES Sep-08-01 12:57 PM
I had IE6 Beta and had no problems. But, now that I downloaded it since it became public I am having problems. If I click on a link that opens another window rather than changing the current window, the new window pops up but is blank. Is anyone else seeing the problem?

I have been using the relased version of IE 6 for about a week and have not seen this problem, just lots of IE errors going back to Microsoft and IE-related blue screens a couple of times a day. I figure that’s because my system is long overdue for it’s twice annual clean install and I installed IE 6 Beta on IE 5.5, went back to a Windows Me restore point that removed most of IE 6 Beta, but left problems behind, reinstalled IE 6 Beta, and then installed IE 6 top of the Beta… Before 6 Beta my system was very stable. That’s the last Beta I try from MS. Maybe in their rush, everything is a “Beta.”

There are known issues causing blank windows related to .pdf files and FirstAid98 (to find them just type mskb in your browser address box, select IE, and enter blank window), but this does not look like them… Also, I have been having problem that were present in older versions of IE (believe it was before IE 4), or maybe it was because I was on a dial-up then. I have to refresh the screen too often to get a display of all repeated images on page (it’s not displaying any of the copies of an image that is repeated many times on a page). That’s not being caused by a slow Internet pipe. I am using cable and the pages that are having the problem are coming-up fast. Larry
