IE8 - Several Possibly Related Bugs/Issues
Just installed final version of IE8 and am experiencing the following:

1. Open in New Tab fails - get a new tab that just says "Connecting..."
2. Open in New Window fails to open any new window, only a new iexplore.exe
process.
3. Recent Pages Drop-Down Button does not show recent pages when clicked
(nothing drops down).
4. After installation, Windows Explorer opens all folders in new windows
even though the option to open in same window is selected.
5. My DVD Drive is labelled as a CD Drive in Windows Explorer.
6. C:\ Drive no longer has flag icon in Windows Explorer.

FYI, I am using Vista Ultimate SP1. As I had same problems with IE8 RC1, I
did the following as a precaution prior to installing:
1. Uninstalled Flash, Shockwave, Java and Google Toolbar.
2. Disabled Skype and Google Desktop.
3. Used msconfig to boot in minimal diagnostic mode.
4. Ran IE8 without add-ons.
5. Reset all IE8 security and advanced settings to defaults.

Unfortunately these didn't resolve the issues.

Others have same problems:

Visit the group that discusses the beta version. This group discusses
the released versions of Internet Explorer. To use Microsoft's
webnews-for-dummies interface (which demands that scripting be enabled)
to visit the Internet Explorer beta group, go to:


http://www.microsoft.com/communities...xplorer. beta

A much better solution is to use a newsreader (e.g., Outlook Express,
Thunderbird, Forte Agent, 40tude Dialog, XanaNews, Xnews). If you do
not have or do not want to use your own NNTP (Network News Transfer
Protocol) server, connect your newsreader to:

msnews.microsoft.com

Then go visit the Internet Explorer *BETA* group at:

microsoft.public.internetexplorer.beta

RE: IE8 - Several Possibly Related Bugs/Issues
Exactly the same problem here with Vista Business x64. I've removed IE8 and
now everything is working fine. Perhaps I'll install it again when these bugs
are resolved (i.e when it's out of beta.....)

The IE8 WAS already released on 03/19/09. So his question was right in this
group )

By the way: I have exactly the same Problem und Vista Business SP1. But only
on one PC. Another one running in a vm is just fine. But unfortunately I
have this issue on my working PC :-(

RE: IE8 - Several Possibly Related Bugs/Issues
I have exact the same problem with my 32 bit vista but OK on my other 64 bit
vista. For final release, this is very unacceptable. BAD job!

Another bug that might be related or not is that the drop down menu next to
left/right arrows before the address box would not open.

I've postet a solution for the new-tab-problem in the beta-forum. Uninstall
Flash and all Java-Versions and then reinstall them from their websites.
This helped for me. It also fixes the problem with the Windows Explorer
showin every folder in a new window.

Dennis, your suggestion solved all the problems.
I just needed to uninstall Flash.

Thanks a lot!
