Does that happen on different mailboxes and using different browsers?

If the issue persists, please refer to the following suggestions

1. Stop the Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. In the Open text box, type Installer , and then click OK.
4. Right-click the Name column header, and then click More..
5. Select Subject and Click OK
6. Search through the Subject field until you find "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x". The x's denote what version is installed on the server.
7. Right-click the cached Windows Installer file that has the "Microsoft Full Text Indexing Engine for Exchange Setup v8.x.xxx.x" subject, and then click Uninstall.
8. After the uninstall process has completed, quit the Installer.
9. Run msiexec /i msfte.msi TARGETDIR="c:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server" .The TargetDir can change, but this is the default one, change it to whatever you are using. MSFTE.msi will add the "\Bin" to the path. After this completes make sure Microsoft.Exchange.Search.ExSearch.exe and msfte.dll are in the same folder. MSFTE.MSI can be found on the Exchange 2007 Setup CD (file:///\\\\Setup\\ServerRoles\\Mailbox) directory
10. Start Microsoft Exchange Search Indexer and the Microsoft Search (Exchange) services.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
