Windows 7: IE8 acting stupid

IE8 acting stupid

My IE8 is acting dumb.


I like to check NBA box scores. The thing loads the score, and I see the current boxscore, than for some reason it reverts to an instance from 40 minutes ago.


I have to load firefox just to follow a boxscore?

There is nothing wrong with the computer or Win7, its just IE8



I load a boxscore from sports.yahoo.com, it loads up and it is current... but than after it finished laoding, it reverts to a box score that is not current. I can reload the page many times and see the current score for a few seconds, only to have IE8 re-draw the instance from 40 minutes ago.


I have to close IE8 and start firefox, just to fllowt the box score.

I don't understand why an older instance of the webpage is taking precedence over the new load.

Try it for yourself. I can reproduce this at will.


NBA - Atlanta Hawks/Memphis Grizzlies Box Score Wednesday October 14, 2009 - Yahoo! Sports

load the above up, and than go to another boxscore, without closing IE8, than go back to the original score. At first it will work, but if you leave it there it will go back to your original load. Even when you refresh, you can see the new load, and than the old load overwrites it.


(this is really annoying)

It's working fine for me. The score is auto updating and showing me the latest info. I clicked on your link, clicked on another link, clicked on the original box score again, and nothing has gone back to an older version.

I just had it happen to me again. It works at first, but the live update eventually screws up. Go back to it, and let is sit there for a bit. You will see it go back to an old instance.


(this has happend to me so many times this year, that i finally got frustrated and posted on this forum)

Yes but I have to do this everytime? That does not sound re-assuring. The live update is supposed to update the web page. It works fine with firefox... no issues.
