hello guys

i am facing a weired issue with ie9 rc

whenever i open the ie9 rc 64bit , after fiew second the browser crashes without any warning
but when i use the normal (i guess 32bit) it works fine

prior to this i was using the ie9 beta

i installed the rc offline
firstly i installed it over the beta
then i uninstalled it from updates

but no difference

This is probably an odd question to ask - but is there a place from where I could download and install the Beta version (not the RC)? I want to uninstall the RC, re-install the Beta and then install the RC over it. I actually uninstalled the Beta and then installed the RC, which may be the reason I have the gmail problem (the problem did not exist in the Beta). So, any links to the Beta version of IE9 would be most helpful.Thanks

Update1: Downloaded and installed IE9Beta and guess what Gmail works perfectly. So, I am going to install IE9 RC over this without uninstalling the Beta.
Update 2: Well I installed the RC over the Beta and the problem with Gmail's pages remain!!!! I think this is a problem with the RC!!!! But I can live with it - for the moment, that is!!!!

Returned to IE8 this AM with a sigh of relief. IE9 was great but seemed like an overtuned engine at times, a bit jumpy and high strung? Also it was really really slow on the first load but seemed fast after that. My big bug was the desktop refresh after IE9 exit. This probably happened 90% of the time. Annoying! I kinda wonder if this thing is a touch gooey in the center yet? Any way IE8 came back with no problems and is running perfectly as always........

I un-installed the beta before installing the RC. No problems that I know of yet. My only gripe is you still can't set the 64 Bit version as the default browser.

I too was suprised by this.Why develop a 64bit browser and not be able to set it as default.

Actually, you can use the 64-bit version as if it is default. First delete the IE icon on the task bar. The drag and drop the IE 64-bit icon from the start menu (you will probably have to dig into "All programs") to the task bar.

This only makes it default by user choice and doesnt make all programs open in 64bit mode
