    Default Internet Explorer Problems

    I rarely use Internet Explorer. I usually use Firefox for my agent account and Chrome for my admin account.

    However, this morning on my computer, I opened IE. (Update Version 9.0.5.) For some reason the photos on my website would haphazardly display or show as hollow gray boxes, plus, I am unable to login to the backend. When I press the Sign In button, the button blinks but the browser doesn't start logging me in.

    I tested Internet Explorer on 2 other computers and those have no problem with IE. It's just my home computer. Do I have some settings wrong or something somewhere?

    IE has really become a "pig with wings"...watch me fly I know most folks out there use it. I don't know how to fix your problem but maybe try reducing your security settings until something changes. That is usually where I have see things go a bit weird.

    See if you are in Compatibility mode or not.

    I had Compatibility mode as a default for awhile and finally figured out it was messing me up on a lot of sites. Switched it off and my problems went away.

    Comparability mode is the devil. I'll go back to Firefox...

    I gave up on IE and went with Firefox. No problems and it actually works....and works fast. Our MLS will only work with IE so that is all I use it for. IE has really become bloated and I think all the "stuff" they add is to cause it to run slow so you go out and by a new computer. Good ole Micro$oft.

    Firefox is the win. Like it much better than IE.

    Chances are your website was produced and launched pre-IE 9 and you are now having compatibility issues (rendering) due to how IE handles your sites code differently than previous versions. Flash / CSS taht sort of thing all have their issues. You need to contact your vendor and have them update your site / diagnose / repair - because it is an IE caused issue, it would be something you should expect them to ask you to pay for unfortunately
