OK chaps and chapettes, I've done summat wrong wit me PC! PC runs Windoze XP Pro Sp2 & all the latest "must have" critical downloads from those jolly fine chaps in Redmond! I've got two problems with IE6 1. on these esteemed forums. I usually use the quick links to get to the "main list" of latest posts, and then select a thread to read. So far so good. If I then use the IE6 "back arrow" button to attempt to return to the main list of posts, nothing happens for the first and second clicks....the third will always return to the main list. I've noticed that during the first & second clicks, the status bar at the bottom flashes the loopback adress of 127.0.0.1...... 2. if I type www.<website> into the address box and hit either the return key or the "go" button, nothing happens. If I type http://www.<website> into the address box and hit either the return key or the "go" button then I immediately go to the desired website. I've checked the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windoze\CurrentVersion\URL\DefaultPrefix & HKLM\.....\Prefixes keys in the registry & they appear to be correct..... So what have I missed?
