IE8 Final Full of Bugs! Abhorred-I'm forced to post this from Mozi
This is unbelievable! I downloaded the "final" IE8 last night and it's like
an alpha preview!

Version 8.0.6001.18702 256bit
Vista Home Premium, SP1, 32bit, never had an IE8 beta installed as I had
this funny feeling that I should wait - now I'm afraid I'll need to re-format
to get completely rid of this sloppy code.

Windows Explorer now opens each window in new tab although explicitly told
not to, documented.

Trying to move data (preparing to format if needed) I can't right click/copy
within Windows Explorer or it hang and crashes.

Cannot open links from within Hotmail

Right clicking a link doesn't open a new tab or new window - perpetual green
tab "loading" - documented

"Down Arrow" to go back to recent pages (near address bar) doesn't function

This is all that I've found as I installed last night, used it for about 5
minutes as it was late, and realized within 10 minutes this morning that I've
made a terrible mistake with this install.

Had to use Firefox all day as I'm afraid that I will now need to re-format
to get rid of it and I had to wait until my wife was through with the PC for
the day.

I'm still somewhat shocked that this was released as final code - with the
current browser competition, this is a huge set back for MS.

I'm not interested in disabling add-ons like some have suggested - if this
needs to be done the browser should disable them during install.

Back to IE7 with it's bugs and probably off to Firefox land for the next 6
months until this all gets fixed.

there's no 256 bit version.

Version 8.0.6001.18702 256bit

Don't you mean 256 bit AES cipher.

Re: IE8 Final Full of Bugs! Abhorred-I'm forced to post this from Mozi
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?

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)?

IMHO Tips:

=> I would strongly recommend disabling your anti-virus application and any
anti-spyware application's "system protections" (other than Defender's)
before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade. If you're running a
third-party firewall, I would recommend disabling it and then enabling the
Windows Firewall before installing (or uninstalling) an IE upgrade.

=> Reboot twice after installing or uninstalling IE8.

=> For best chance of success with IE8, make certain that your anti-virus
application, any anti-spyware applications (other than Defender), and your
third-party firewall (if any) are supported in IE8 Final before you decide
install it.

Sure.

Back in IE7, all problems appear to be fixed.

Find it mildly amusing that the IE8 uninstall page,
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957700 , was updated on the 20th
"Article ID: 957700 - Last Review: March 20, 2009 - Revision: 6.0"

It's obvious that MS knows there's a huge issue with the release code!

***Possible - it's a Gateway and there was probably something on it that I
removed.***

***Regarding your tips - they certainly make sense, but why the absence of
warnings during install?***

***I'll try to re-install, disabling AVG and enabling Vista's firewall.***

Re: IE8 Final Full of Bugs! Abhorred-I'm forced to post this from
I give up. I did as you said. I turned off firewal and anti-virus even though
it's was One Care which SHOULDN'T cause any issues. Uninstalled IE8. Rebooted
TWICE. re-installed IE8 and re-booted twice. And still get the same issue
with certain websites crashing. Same error as before. I didn't have this
issue with RC1 so something happened between that version and the final one.
So unfortunately I'll be stuck with using another browser until MS can fix
this mess. And I'll certianly not be upgrading any other computers to IE8 and
I will recommentd to people I know to NOT upgrade to IE 8 until I'm 100% sure
MS has fixed this debacle.

RE: IE8 Final Full of Bugs! Abhorred-I'm forced to post this from Mozi
Took the advice of PA Bear:

Uninstalled AVG.

Installed IE8

Re-Booted twice.

Same as before

Back in IE7 again - at least the un-install works and is rather quick.

Re: IE8 Final Full of Bugs! Abhorred-I'm forced to post this from
I have jave 6 update 12 and have had it almost a month. Sites currently
giving me troubles that I know of are pogo.com, charter.com. usatoday.com,
jacksonsun.com, speakeasy.net. I don't want to hear about it being a flash
issue sicne pelnty of otehr site with flash work just fine. add-on no add-on
makes no difference. Everything worked fine with RC1. Only until I upadated
did I have problems. when I uninstall and go back to IE 7 the problems go
away. So obviously something changed between RC1 and this verison.

Hey Einstien I already tried that. It didn't do anything different. Same
problem. Still crashes. Some of these sites didn't have "compatitbility
issues" in RC1 to begin with.
