Problem: Using Internet Explorer 8 and Windows 7 - some buttons & links do not work.
Effect: The links are disabled and nothing happens when you click. If you have the browser set to open another tab instead of new windows, the tab activates but is blank.
It is a considerable annoyance and we are investigating. We will post the fix here when we find it, or Microsoft develops it. Why Microsoft allows this situation is hard to understand. In any case,here are two easy solutions.
There is no problem at all if you use the "Firefox" browser. You can download it at: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/personal.html
There is also no problem using the Google "Chrome" Browser. You can download it at: http://www.google.com/chrome/?brand=CHMB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-sk&utm_medium=ha
Our testing shows that this problem does not exist with IE6 or IE7. It does not exist with IE8 on an XP machine. It is only with IE8 running on Windows 7 machines. This is a good example why it is a good idea to have Firefox and/or Chrome on your computer in addition to Internet Explorer.
