Whenever I try and open a hyperlink that opens in a new window (a popup) the window that opens remains white and blank seemingly "loading" for eternity. The weird thing is that if I "stop" the popup window loading and then refresh it loads normally. Too bad this solution won't work as the user is a) not technically inclined and b) things like web messenger don't have stop or refresh buttons.
On the subject of messenger, what usually is one window appearing as your contact list turns into 5 or more all "blank" popups.
For system I am running dell d 6-10 with windows xp SP2. The IE version is 6.0.2900 (compliant) and security zone settings have been matched to a working computer of the same type.
this problem does not occur in firefox, but some of our programs do not work in that browser so it isn't an ideal answer either. We are behind a firewall and using a proxy to access the net.
