Running Windows 7-64 and IE8-32. McAfee Internet Security. All up to date
After 5 months of IE8 working fine in the last 3 weeks IE8 acts weird when trying to open links.
On "some" pages links will open o.k. with a left click BUT even on the same page they will not open or will open with a "right" click BUT if you left click first you cannot use the right click but you have to go back a page then go back and right click. Then on some other pages right or left clicks don't work.
I have reset, lowered security, removed ad-ons, un blocked pop-ups, scanned my system for viruses, used a scripting program all to no avail.
I think this is just some sucky thing with IE8 and has no real solution BUT on the chance that someone has a fix I'm posting.

I am having the same problems. For example, the links within this website some work and some don't. I also have been unable to use the printing functions within ebay and paypal that seem similar to the other navigation problems. I have tried to Java suggestions but nothing works. I know this is no help to you but hope there is someone out there who could help us both.
You could try an IE8 reset: Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset. You could also try resetting all devices involved in providing internet access by powering down and rebooting. This includes your PC, router, and modem.
