Hello everyone,

I keep getting screwed by the Timeout settings. Even if I am typing and doing something, I still get bit by the timeout settings! So how can I change them, If at all, for IE7 and IE8?

What do you mean by "timeout?" Is your connection timing out?

Hello,

Well, for an example; when I am on a website like this, where you can respond to topics, write a topic, or do searches for information or items, I will sometimes get a message saying to the affect: "the browser has timed out, and to refresh the screen or to resend the information if I was trying to buy something."

It happens when I switch from one website to another and back again. I listen to music from one website and then do whatever one the others. If I do not like the song, want to change the vol, or switch the type of music I am listening to, I will switch to the screen/window/webpage with music I am listening to and do what I need to do and then switch back right away. Sometimes I am only gone from the origional webpage for only a minute or two and then I get the "Timed out" message, other times it is over ten minutes or five minutes. So I do not know what is doing this. I asked the one website and they said it was the browser's timeout settings, because I thought I had a problem with their website and missing/losing my topic and information I typed and looked up.

I hope this helps.
