Sharepoint 2007 Web Part Page

I'm using Sharepoint 2007.  I created a Web Part Page and assigned it to a Document Library.  Under this web part page, I Place a Content Editor Web Part,  "Page Viewer Web Part" and give the page viewer web part a URL to open a website.

However, when a user click on the Web Part Page under the Document Library.  The browser doesn't go to the Web Part Page.  It opens up The URL for Page Viewer Web Part directly.

 I want the user to go to Web Part Page instead of going to the URL directly.  It works fine under my Administor account, which I use it to create this Web Part Page.   It just doesn't work for the other users.

Is there anything i do wrong?  How do I resolve this problem?

How come "Page Viewer Web Part" works fine on the Default page of the site, it seems doesn't work on newly created Web Part Page?

Thank you!

Can you give your pages and URL's some names?  I'm confused as to what is being laid out.

Site
  doclib
      web part page.aspx
          Page View Webpart -> pointing to an external site
          CWEP with something in it

 I assume you want to "frame" another website in an iframe (hence the page viewer web part) in a page that has other web parts (like the CEWP).

When the user is on the homepage, and they navigate to the web part page.aspx, you state that they don't see the web part page.aspx, but rather they go right to the external site?

Yes. the users is taken to the External site, instead of staying on WebPartPage.aspx.  To be precisely, I see the browser direct the user to WebPartPage.aspx, then immediate go to External Site.( all these happened in 1 second)  The final URL is showing External site's url, instead of WebPartPage.aspx.

Site

 - DocLib
   
    - WebPartPage.aspx


WebPartPage.aspx consists of the following:

1. Description - Content Editor Web Part

2. External Web Site (Mail.Yahoo.com )  -  Page Viewer Web Part.


When a user click on WebPartPage.aspx, the should see the Description and Mail.Yahoo.com right under it.  However, now the browser take the user directly to Mail.Yahoo.com directly.

But,

When I (the Administrator ) log in, and click on WebPartPage.aspx, I am viewing WebPartPage.aspx content just fine.  I see the Description and Exteral Web Site right underneath.

So, What's going on with this problem?

When you are swapping between admin and user, are you logging all the way out of windows?  Try clearing IE's cache and try again. Sharepoint doesn't do what you describe unless you feed a little meta-refresh via a cewp or javascript.
Try making a brand new page with a new name, does the behavior persist?

I cleaned IE's cache and restarted the worksation and make a new page.  It's  still the same.

I found out.  It may have someting to do with the IE or Windows Operating System.

The user workstation is Windows XP. IE 8.  When I login with my administrator accoun on this machine.  It has the same problem.

Any idea how I can adjust IE8 settings or Windows XP settings to make this page beheave normally?

Thank you!
