I’m using Internet Explorer 7.0 for general browsing and one of the things I use a lot is the tabbed browsing feature. I especially use it for this board as it has a tendency to hang from time to time so I just read another thread while it’s loading.
Lately (the past five or so days), though, about 60% of the time that I open up a new tab, the browser will freeze for maybe 4-5 seconds and the new tab will say “Connecting…” before it starts to load. Additionally, even when it doesn’t freeze for a few seconds, maybe about 10 seconds later, I’ll get the “Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.” error and the browser will shut down.
I’ve re-booted, I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the browser, and I still don’t know how to fix the problem (outside of using another browser, smartasses! )
