Are there still reported problems with this site and IE7? Updates finally got around to dumping it on this computer, but I have not installed it yet.

Did you hit your head when you fell in the shower, FStein?


D&T - The only thing I've noticed is the TA links at your top right are on my top left, and my user name is buried under the TA logo (which is no problem at all). Otherwise, IE7 works fine, if you don't mind the IE restart and stop buttons being way over on the right, and you have to customize the top IE toolbar (which isn't as customizable as it is in IE 6). But I did have to go through the hassle of uninstalling and reinstalling Flash. This can be quite an ordeal that might require reading the troubleshooting stuff at Adobe, if Flash doesn't install correctly the first time.

You may want to double check all your software vs IE7. Older versions of QuickBooks have some issues with it. I have clients that are still using QuickBooks 2002. They don't want to upgrade because they've got other software that links well with it and I can't think of any reason to force them to upgrade.

I had all sorts of problems with IE7 and the screens not displaying text properly. I went back to 6. Gonna try Firefox

As I understand it, there were even issues with recent versions of QBs (2006), particularly the payroll and merchant services. I haven't heard if this has been worked out, but then again I have a bunch of QBs emails that I haven't read yet. Personally I'm going to wait a little longer to install 7.0 and let everyone else work out the bugs. I'm currently having issues with applets (something in java), and it's very frustrating.

Agreed - I usually am about six months behind on software. Let someone else be the unpaid beta tester. I don't have time.

QB is not a problem; I don't have a copy on this computer. For now it is just sitting there, this little yellow shield on my taskbar. Some day I'll screw up the courage to install it.

Well, I was just told to try using Firefox for my applet issue. I'm just hoping there are no other side effects regarding those applets.

I uninstalled IE7 because I didn't like it. Nothing to do with this site, just in general. It gives MS too much control over my computer. taxea

installed IE7 on one of our office machines and it was nothing but a problem so we've left all the others at IE6. I have firefox on my personal laptop and absolutely love it.

Jusducki:

I use Firefox as well. I've installed a number of "add-ons" which really help!

  • Mouse Gestures - Allows me to open multiple links in different tabs by "drawing" lines over them with the right mouse button
  • Clippings - I can save text which I use frequently and then right-mouse click and select which to add in forms. I use this for things I have to type all the time, like welcome messages, informing people that I moved their question to the forum, etc.
  • Foxy Tunes - allows me to control my music player (WinAmp) via little buttons right in the browser
