Partially figured out issue
Fri, 10-26-2012 - 6:26pm

I have Windows XP here at work and went back to try Explorer again and I can see replies on Explorer.  I have Explorer 8, as Explorer 9 is not available with Windows XP.  

Another interesting thing is on Explorer 8, I have a right side bar and headers, etc.  

On Google Chrome, I have no side bar and no headers.  I can't tell if I am on signed on, etc. etc.

Not sure why it matters, so I hope it eventually works for all browsers.

Hello Again Serenity,

Please follow these link in reguards to IE8 thank you Ed:

For more Google IE8 vulnerabilities 2012. Essentially IE explorer products are prime targets for hackers worldwide and that's a lot of hackers. Give Firefox a go it's much safer and has many great ad blockers plus other useful plugins. I strongely recommend you update your HOST FILE regularily too. What's a HOST FILE ;

Security issues

The hosts file represents an attack vector for malicious software. (It blocks these sites)

Where to get it:

Hi, Serenity. It sounds like Chrome might need to be zoomed out. If you set your zoom settings to about 75%, you should be able to see things normally. The shortcut in Chrome to zoom out is ctrl - (ctrl + to zoom back in). Please let me know if this helps.
