Favorites Subfolders Won't Expand
After browsing various sites in Internet Explorer 7 for awhile, sometimes the
Favorites subfolders won't expand. Closing and reopening fixes it. Anyone
know why this happens? Could it be too many favorites in the subfolder?
Windows XP SP3
Thanks,

I'm able to reproduce it here, too (in IE7/WinXP SP3). Quite an usual bug
IMHO.

Is Outlook Express and/or are lots of other IE7 windows and/or is WMP also
open when this occurs?

Do you find that the IE7 window must be open for (quite) a while before this
happens?

Do you find that the behavior is not seen in another tab in the affected IE7
window nor in any other open IE7 windows and tabs?

Thanks for your quick reply.

-- Outlook 2003 is likely open, but I don't believe other IE windows or WMP
are open.
-- Yes, it seems to happen only after IE is open for awhile.
-- I'll make a note of whether or not Favorites will open after switching to
an alternate IE tab.
