Well, have tried all that has been suggested, but I am relegated to clicking "properties" for the link, copying the URL and pasting it for at least 40% of the links.
- (Studying them does not reveal any obvious commonality). - I had to do that last night on my Medicare account - clicked on a needed link - the tab popped up, as usual, and stayed forever on "connecting..", so HAD to cut-and-paste!
In fact - every non-working link DOES do exactly that and "cut and paste" does work, so it is internal to 7 (with any browser)
Sorry I've been away - not from a solution here. but from a procedure with another "solution" - the kind that takes drinking 4 liters of obnoxious stuff, if you get my drift..
