You neglected to provide even one URL from those "various sites" so
nobody can test it with their copy of IE 8.
Experience has shown that virtually every problem attributed to Internet
Explorer (and to Firefox) is actually caused by one or more of:
1- incompatible browser add-ons;
2- inappropriate configuration settings;
3- incorrect installation procedures; and
To test for incompatible browser add-ons in Internet Explorer 7 and 8,
see if you have the same problem(s) when running Internet Explorer in
'no add-ons' mode:
If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
If you have Vista or 7: Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start
Search box > click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
To test for inappropriate configuration settings, see if you have the
same problem(s) after resetting Internet Explorer to its default settings:

Whenever you ask a question about Internet Explorer, please tell us:
* what version of Internet Explorer you are using;
* what version of Windows you are using (with the service pack number); and
* whether you are using a 32- or 64-bit version of Windows.
If you have not already done so, please be sure to include this
information with your next post.
