OK. Here is the problem. In Gmail, the first that that catches the eye is the "Archive" button" which is in Bold (always is by default). But in the RC is seems to be blurred a bit. Secondly, when I reply to a mail, the font setting is very small. I have to go to the Font button to reset it to "normal" size. But it reverts back to the very small size the next time.

The same thing used to happen with the Beta but I fixed that by going into the compatibility setting and checking the option to use MS generated web lists. But that fix does not work in Gmail.

I did reinstall the RC, but the problem remains.[/QUOTE]

The Archive is the same ..:

Yes the font is set small in default ,

Thanks. But no, on my machine, the "Archive" button is not the same. You can make out the difference if you change the compatibility settings. If you do that you will see that the font size of the Archives button is regular bold and the messages have normal font size which gmail remembers.

No...I think there is a problem on the Gmail site. I asked a few of my colleagues and they seem to have the same problem.

The ActiveX Filter is helpful when you go to some website that loads a lot a players,
prevent the browser crashes.

Searching in googles now is very smooth,no delays
Personally still place the tab on the same level as the address bar,
becasue it gives me the biggest browser's area(not count F11 Fullscreen Mode)
That's because the 64bit IE 8 is no longer opening. If you pinned a shortcut to the taskbar for example like I did here for both and now have the RC on or browse directly to the "Program Files\Internat Explorer" folder to double click on the main exe file the IE 9 RC will still be what you see.

The Gmail issue disappears if I remove the Rich Text Formatting. As plain text it works fine - font sizes included. It's a shame that Rich Text Formatting does not seem to work on my set up.

Is there any way by which - as much as I don't want to - I can revert to the Beta version? The RC is disappointing in so far as Gmail is concerned and since I am on it all the time, this becomes an operational problem for me.

Additionally, I think there is also a problem with the DISQUS commenting system on various sites (the one I checked most recently is Wired (www.wired.com))

Oh Well...I guess it is back to Chrome for me (unfortunately).

because some of us actually use a vast number of sites that are IE only and chrome can't handle, so having an upgraded IE thats pretty much as fast as Chrome that works so far on every site I throw at it with all features. I'll take it.

SharePoint for example, try it on Chrome, it's dumbed down. IE9 you get full features in an upgraded fast browser.

I'm loving the RC, they fixed so far all my complaints I hated about beta. Most all my older admin sites woudln't work, and they all have worked so far! 2 thumbs up!
Have yet to encounter one of those sites. And I could use the IE tab extension for that anyway. Also, on my machine it's noticeably slower than Chrome.

I just got to getting the RC on here and right away it was noticably faster. I still have to get used to seeing the home page icon and favorites on the opposite side. Won't need the command bar displayed anymore however.

This might help those of you with limited bandwidth that need to install IE9 on more than one computer.

OK...here is what I find after testing Gmail out on IE9 RC.

Apparently, there is a problem with rendering Rich Formatting on IE9 on my machine. Two things are noticeable: (1) The slight blurring of the fonts and (2) the default setting of font-size being set to "small". You can change it manually every time you compose a mail, but the next time it will revert back to the default status.

One place where the problem with the Rich Formatting is very noticeable is when you go to the settings page of Gmail. If you have a signature which you have saved in Rich Formatting, it will appear in a "small" font size and there is no way to change it. This is because you cannot (or, at least, I cannot on the RC install on my machine) select the contents of the text box provided for custom signatures. If you change to Plain Text only, then everything works - both on the Settings page AND when creating or replying to an email.

Since I don't have the problem in either Chrome (which is the most recent and stable version - 9.xxx something) or on Opera (also the most recent and updated version), I think the problem is with IE9 RC. I also don't have a problem with how things are rendered on other sites with IE9 like - my Hotmail account etc.

But then again, only a very few of you have reported this problem - though quite a few of my colleagues are reporting the same problem.

I did file a report on this with MS. Btw, the DISQUS problem also remains.
