    Internet Explorer 7

    Hello,

    I have recently moved from Firefox to IE7 and i like it. I have one problem.

    I play a browser-based game, new threads on the message-boards are bolded. Currently if i visit a new thread and press 'back' IE7 refreshes the page and i'm at a loss as to exactly which threads are new and which aren't.

    Why does IE7 do this? I'm sure with IE6 you could press the back button all day long and there was no forced refresh in place... (i could be wrong).

    How can i configure IE7 to prevent it from doing this.

    laze.

    I would use the new tab based browsing feature to open each thread in a new tab, or better still, upgrade a better web browser

    sounds like for some reason the board is timing our your session, so when IE reloads the page the board software thinks it is a new visit, and so doesn't show any new threads since your last visit.

    Not sure why this would be happening. IE7 works for me on all the boards i use.

    People used Firefox because it had features none of the previous IE did'nt have (ie tabs) and put up with some incompatibility problems when some sites did'nt properly support Firefox. Now that IE7 is out because of its support and compatibility I see no reason to revert back.

    Personaly I whould prefer not to catch the latest internet virus, so I use Firefox for most browsing. In general if a site does not render correctly in Firefox, then it is the site that is broken, not firefox, as firefox sticks to and enforces standards, where as MSIE tends to forgive all sorts of shoddy web coding.

    If there is a site I realy need to see, and only MSIE works, there is a firefox plugin avalable that will give you a 'view in IE' context menu item.

    it sounds like an intentional behaviour change to me - precisely *for* places like forums, so you can see what's new *now*, not an hour ago when you clicked a link

    i'd agree with the recommendation to browse forums by making judicious use of tabs

    as for ie7-versus-firefox, i don't like safari's ui and i don't like microsoft's copy of it either. at least the ie7 renderer is vastly improved over ie6
