Re: IE8 tool bar color
I have XP Home SP3 and find that every once in a while I get the black
toolbar business described above. It seems that my theme Windows Classic has
ro be reset for the black to go away. My PC is new and has latest video
drivers etc. This only happens in IE8 but not when I had IE7.
Also I found that I had the sleeping tab problem and disabled JAVA from IE8
and new tabs works fine.
