cannot open links on websites

Hi all, I'm new here and have a problem opening links when I get on a website. I'm using a toshiba satellite laptop with W7 and IE9. The site I am talking about is Ebay. I am trying to sell some items and have to upload pictures to complete my listing and when I klick on the add photo tab, nothing happens. I have installed the latest flashplayer, hoping that it may have been the problem, but ,no, still nothing happens.I am not a expert in these matters,I have used the ebay site before and all went as it should but I have upgraded to IE9 and that's when the trouble started, so am hoping that there may be someone out there who can help me.??

Hello chipmunk. Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It may well be E-bay's website has incompatibily issues with IE9.

Some Web sites may not behave as expected in Internet Explorer

I'd be inclined to uninstall IE9 and use IE8 instead or choose another browser such as Firefox or Chrome.

You might also want to review the eBay help page for adding photos.

Thanks Lee, I have done that as well, or rather I have tried to do that but that too will not open for me, when I click on the help button nothing happens. As I said before, I have done a fair bit of work on Ebay and never had a problem like this before, so I will try to go back to IE8 and see what happens, thanks again.

Outlook won't open links if IE is open.
Well, I have searched and have not been able to find a solution to my particular issue: with IE9 set as default browser, when I click on a link in an Outlook message, the link will only open if IE is not already running. In other words, with IE closed if I click a link in Outlook, it will open, but...
