Re: Curious Behavior with IE 7 Browsing history auto fill
Craigs list works fine for me at http://seattle.craigslist.org/hhh/
Craigs' list is continually updating their web sites (they have sub webs for
each city/location), and auto-complete uses a combination of web site
address and form name to store auto-complete entries for web pages.
Check Tools>Internet Options - General tab, Colors button to see if you have
set the visited and un-visited link colors to the same value. Web sites can
also style link colors.
