Also when I save a file it won't open from IE9x64, if I try to directly open it that doesn't work either. Have to save as, pick a location, then drill the folders to find the file and open it directly. Something in IE9x64 is preventing it from opening files with other programs. I tried turning off Smart Screen filter, no help.
Acrobat Pro uses a 32-bit plugin which won't work in the 64-bit version of IE

Thanks, is there something similiar as far as an add-on that would capture and save a webpage well on IE9x64? I guess I could print to pdf that would be as good I would think ?

Web page loading progress in status bar - Really Miss It!

Maybe something is missing in my beta IE9 but I really do miss the progress bar that would display in the status bar. i.e. I click on a website and kind of wait in the dark wondering if it's loading or just locked up. I hope progress status is in the next release.

The IE9x32 won't let me select it as the default browser, the selection is greyed out. Also I have to open IE9x64 before IE9x32 will work. Any ideas, or just beta stuff?

Yes, I miss the progress bar too. Haven't had one since, what? IE 6 or 7. . . It would be great if Microsoft brought it back!

it's probably something that the BETA does automatically..

if you have installed it, the 64-bit version of IE9 will essentially become the default..

when you think about it, that makes sense - as the 64-bit version is easily capable of handling 32-bit, if and when necessary..

If you open the 64 bit version of IE and go to the Programs tab and look under Default web browser, you will see that it says "Internet Explorer (64-bit) cannot be made the default browser". Also "Make Default" will be grayed out. If IE is the default browser "Make Default" will also be grayed out if you open the same menu in IE (32-bit). There have been several of us that have tried to make IE 9 (64-bit) the default browser and failed. If IE is not open and you click a link to a web site in an e-mail, IE 32 bit will open by default. I think there is a discussion on this in this thread.

- I have no knowledge of MS policy on this one, as I'm just the Average-Joe user, myself..
- but, it seems to me that is the way it should be during the BETA phase..
- after all, a good deal of the testing is done in the real world, using existing software technology
- and while many apps and add-ins are being updated, some developers are using this as an opportunity to upgrade their products' capabilities during the change-over,
- consequently some, like Adobe, are still BETA-testing their own updated 64-bit apps, etc..

- for the present, if a site requires 32-bit to function correctly, as many still do - to autodefault to that system would be the best solution..

- I haven't actually got a clue, but that's er, how it seems to me..
