Must be embarrassing for MS, eh? I had thought that IE8 had cured all former issues with the previous versions....even though I don't use it myself. Perhaps I was mistaken.

I've decided to start using Google Chrome, even after being a Firefox user for many years, and as of right now, I'm not regretting my decision.
