Hello all,
A very annoying thing...some web pages will display with text written almost on top of text, and often there will be a button that won't display, say a "Save" or a "Cancel" button...you can see where it's supposed to be, but either there is text on top of it that won't allow you to click on it, or the space where the button should be is blank.

This is esp. frustrating because ***AOL's own help pages*** all display this way for me and I can't change passwords or anything. So far no help from them.

This doesn't happen on the majority of pages, I would say maybe 20% of pages display this way but it is very annoying if it is a page you need to see, like from your credit card company or whatever.

These pages are the ones that won't display properly right now
Panda Activescan
Washington Mutual website
AOL help pages

I am running Xp SP 2 with IE 6

Any help would be appreciated greatly
thank you

Try this free browser to see if the problem exists in it. If it does, then the problem isn't IE - if it doesn't have the problem, then the problem is IE.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
