IE 8 Beta 2: Need clarfication on its functionality
Hello,

I just upgraded from IE7 to IE8 Beta2.

I noted that the performance is not as good as IE7 due to the following
reasoins and need futher clarification:

1. Whenever I launch IE8, my Norton Phising Protection is turn off and need
to fix it repeatedly. I still want the Norton protection. What must I do to
fix it ?

2. In IE7 when I click once at the V button after the URL,all my previous
URL would appear. This is not so in IE8. The responsiveness is very
uncertain, sometime I need to click up to 5 time only the previous URL would
appear. My I know how to get things right?

3 I noted that the font is very much thinner than IE7 and less clear. Is it
due to Beta Version?

I hope somebody could help on the above.

Thanks

Low

Hi,
Crossposted to microsoft.public.internetexplorer.beta and follow-up set.

You have been directed to this newsggroup by mistake (not your fault.)

IE8 Beta Newsgroup:

NNTP newsreader:
news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsof...texplorer.beta

Web Interface:
http://www.microsoft.com/communities...xplorer. beta
- - -
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,
Don
