Hi,

I have a wordpress site that uses a custom skin theme, I recently updated the theme and wordpress and now in internet explorer 8 my site doesn't seem to load unless I keep refreshing it. The status bar indicates : (2 items remaining) Downloading data Http://capoproductionsmusic.com/wp-content/themes/massimo/yanonekaffeesatz-regular-webfont.woff but the site won't load unless I refresh it.

This only seems to happen in IE8, 9 works well.

Thank you

a Google search using ie8 woff require refresh returns over 600,000 hits.  IE8 is known to be wonkie with custom fonts and it will be a contant headache if you can't support IE8 without them.

FCapo--You have not told us the version of Windows you use.  Any reason not to install IE9?

Have you tried Compatibility View in IE8?
