Am using XP Home SP3, IE8 browser, and have AVG Business Edition with integrated firewall.
When l click on some entries within my favorites list, nothing happens at all (never used to do this).
I know why it's happening, but not the cause and how to fix it.
If you hover the cursor over any of the favorites, it gives you the name and http address. You then click on it and it takes you to that site. Hover the cursor over that favorite name again, and the http info has been wiped out, hence it wont connect again.
It's even just happened to my favorite for your site, and l've had to google you to gain access that way.
Once in the site, l can add it to the favorite list again, but once l come out, the http details are wiped clean.
It's not happening on every site in favorites, seems to be random, but is pig annoying!
Any ideas?
