IE8 Beta Newsgroup:
- - -
1. In Internet Explorer> Safety> SmartScreen Filter, is SmartScreen filter
turned on? It's common for third-party programs/add-ons/features to be
incompatible with a beta product (IE8.) I would disable the Norton Phishing
Filter and use IE8's SafetyScreen.
2. Is AutoComplete for web addresses enabled from Internet Options> Content>
AutoComplete? If it is, there's nothing more you can do. Try clicking once
and waiting. The slow, inconsistent operation of the Address Bar drop-down
list will probably be fixed in later releases.
3. Internet Options> Advanced> Multimedia, is Clear Type enabled? Some users
like it- some don't.
Hope this helps,
