Hello Everyone, I am having a problem opening new windows in IE 6.0, on a pc running XP Professional with SP2, but mine seems to be exclusive to my Yahoo email account. Prior to a week ago I had no problem opening multiple new windows (typically 10-12) when checking my email. Now, when I open new windows, all but the first opens back to the Yahoo welcome page of my email account. I've brought this problem to Yahoo's online support, but, naturally, they were of no assistance and referred me to IE Help. Is there something to be done about this? The latest update I have is the IE fix from the 5th of this month, number: 867282 Three weeks ago I installed Norton Internet Security 2005, could it be one of this software’s settings that I may have overlooked?
I’ve tried simply restoring IE defaults, including, under “Advanced Options” turning-off “Reuse windows for launching shortcuts”…neither resolved the issue.
Yesterday, I spent time with a Symantec Tech online, and they tried many adjustments, including having me dl 2 additional browsers to learn if the issue was created in those, as well. I dl both Netscape and Firefox, and the Yahoo issue was identical, still Yahoo ignores and refers me instead to Microsoft’s IE browser. I don’t really think it’s IE but, if anyone could assist, I’d appreciate it very much. Thank you, for your attention. CJ
