Windows 7: IE10 annoyances

IE10 annoyances

I have some delays accessing my router web interface. Sometimes straight in and other times long delays of waiting for reply. Also happens on mybook wd live web UI. It was fine on IE9. Strangely on advice from my routers forum in netgear starting 'in private' browsing makes the issue go away and all is fine. This seems a frustrating bug introduced by ie 10. Fiddling with the compatibility modes under developer tools makes no difference. Only in private browsing makes it run fine 100% of the time.

Also I read this on other forums and experienced myself. They have messed up FTP browsing in IE10. I often access my ftp drive and select option to open in explorer view. However launching a file of any type just opens up blank with zero bytes. Dragging/copying files between FTP still works ok but to be able to open an ftp file up it has to be copied locally now. So this is an annoying bug. Like I say it's been picked up by a number of people and see this on my own laptop plus the machine at work. Roll back to IE9 and all is fine again.

Why do they have to break things with new roll outs. Here's hoping IE11 is better. Actual external web browsing under IE10 seems fine, no better than ie9 and no worse. Seems a pain to lose features /gain bugs just to gain a few milliseconds on web page loading. Anyone know how far away IE11 public release might be?

In-Private browsing disables third party browser add-ons,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer
Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or itís located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.
If using ie10 the first link will apply to ie9 as well,

Where did ie 64 bit version go,

I wish it was the case about add ons but I still see the issue if I run IE without add ons. Only running inprivate consistently logs in to the web UI of my router. Others have same issue. Just disappointed IE10 breaks functionality here along with the FTP issues. As I like to be upto date I will endure it and hope IE11 is better. I don't care if ie 10 loads pages 0.00001 secs quicker than IE9 - just want reliable functionality. Mozilla has none of these issues and neither does IE9. I think a lot of the companies are the same now such as apple with IOS7, itunes11, MS with IE10 and windows 8 - change for the sake of change and in process losing features or creating bugs that would not of been there without the incessant tinkering. Just my two cents

What router do you have?

I have seen no issues with IE 10 using D-link DIR 836L nor with my Buffalo NAS.

It's a netgear 3700 older style Web UI. I know it works with some UIs as I have access points which the UI loads ok and another NAS. But there are these issues which on top of the FTP problems are very frustrating. Whilst IE9 worked fine it's annoying to be going backwards with IE10. I tried the mybook NAS on another PC/router combo using IE10 and same massive initial delay to load the UI. But under inprivate browsing no problems. It's bizarre!

I had a NetGear N300 without any issue,
Now I'm on a at&t U-verse without any issues,
Must be time to Upgrade your router/ why would you need to access the router so much ?

It's a new system and I'm still getting used to it but two things bug the devil out of me...first, I hate these over-sized icons. They use up maybe three times as much real estate as the icons in Xp. Is there anyway to make them smaller or swap them out? Second, I hate the gadget at the top...
