major issues with IE8
Ok first of all the fact I'm having to use CHROME just to post this is one
since when using IE8 nothing happens when I click "new thread". and that
wasn't even my issue.

My real issue is that maybe 15-20% of the sites I visit crash in IE8. The
tab get recovered, then it crashes again, recovers again, then crashes again
then I get a "can't return to website" page. Putting those sites in
compatibility mode does nothing. I've turned of all toolbars and add-ons.
Still get the problem. I've cleared cache, cookies etc ect.

I've always been a supporter of IE, but I can't have this. So until MS fixes
this crap I'll have to be using another browser. I will not be installing IE
8 on the other computers in the household and I will recommend to everyone I
know to NOT upgrade to IE8 until MS gets it's act in gear.

Some examples of sites with issue are jacksonsun.com, zdnet.com, pogo.com,
charter.com, speakeasy.net/speedtest, usatoday.com, cnet.com is fine until
you click a story link. Just to name a few.

Re: major issues with IE8
Brian, this information is incidental, but you'l find it easier to post
messages here if you use a news reader and log into news.microsoft.com. I
use neither IE8 nor Chrome to post here, but use a newsreader - Windows
Mail; it goes a lot easier. DH

(This particular newsgroup is microsoft.public.internetexplorer.general.)

You say you disabled all add-ons? I tried a few of the URLs and they all
appear to use Flash - and that would most likely be the cause of your
problems. I haven't had any crashing in IE8 as yet, but I've only been using
it for a few hours to test it out on a single PC here at work to evaluate
whether to allow it to be rolled out.

Re: major issues with IE8
[Yes, I've read all of your other replies to others' threads. You really
should have stuck to this one.]

Please state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) when
posting to this newsgroup.

In other threads, you've told us that accessing the sites in Compatibility
Mode doesn't help so I'll skip that now.

1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode? To start
IE in No Add-ons mode:

=> Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without
Add-ons; or

=> Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
Explorer (No add-ons).

Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode:
http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx

2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737 <= Read before using!

3. Does the behavior persist if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?
[Careful! Only remain in Safe Mode just long enough to test!]

4a. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
in the background when you installed IE8?

4b. Has a Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine
(e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?

5a. Had you installed any beta builds of IE8? If so, did you see the same
behavior? Did you uninstall the beta build manually before installing the
final release?

5b. Do you see the same behavior if you uninstall IE8 Final?
