Jacky,
This is more an admin issue than moderator but I have found myself and I'm thinking a lot of folk would agree that Firefox or Google Chrome are better browsers than IE.
I'm certainly having zero problems with Firefox.
Regards
Andrew

I got that the other day too... despite it saying there were twenty-something 'new posts'... (on my office PC)

One thing you might try (to isolate/disprove IE as the source of the problem) would be to download firefox or chrome and see if the same thing happens. All these browsers seem to present the site somewhat differently from the other. If this issue is persistent and only since you 'upgraded' then it (IE) may well be the cause and if so admin will want to investigate.

It was really slow and timed out a few time earlier today with firefox and IE! IIRC 10-11AM or there abouts pacific time. Then once it cleared up, posts would come up.

For the IT folks, take this for what it might be worth, not that one paid much for it!

IE9 problems?

I use IE8 in one computer, and recently 'upgraded' to IE9 in another.

On logging in, when I click on "new posts," IE8 brings me all new posts since my last login.

Now, on the 'upgraded' IE9 selecting New Posts bring me an empty search. But the IE8 computer continues to act the same (good) way as before.

So there must have been some internal Internet Options setting that must have been changed in the upgrade from IE8 to IE9. (Although, the problem seems to be limited to the SailNet Web site...doesn't happen on other sites.) I've been running the two versions of Internet Explorer side by side, looking into all the detailed settings, trying to find out what switch had been flipped. So far, I haven't found anything.

If I do, I'll post it here. Maybe someone more expert in Internet details has an answer? ...

I've had this problem since upgrading to IE9 a couple of months ago; I asked o the technical forum at http://www.sailnet.com/forums/sailne...new-posts.html but without a solution.

Sounds like IE is the problem. Better to run FireFox, Chrome or Opera, anyway. Because they don't support ActiveX (referred-to as "ActiveTrojan" by some IT geeks), they're marginally safer than IE, anyway.

Other than poorly-designed web sites that require ActiveTrojan support, and there are few of those, there's no reason to use it. It's less standard than the others and, as of a few months ago, no longer hold the dominant position in browser use.

SEMIJim - you realize that you are advocating not using the most popular browser in the world - according to W3Counter - Global Web Stats IE still accounts for 37.7% of all browser use?

I'd rather have the problem in sailnet.com fixed rather than change my web browser. I've accepted the consequences and don't visit this site as much anymore but still hope that admin fixes it. All the other forums a BBoards that I use work just fine with IE.

But it's no longer the majority. And, yes, I realize it full well.

I don't use IE. (Wouldn't even if it did run on non-MS operating systems.) My wife doesn't use it, and hasn't ever. We don't use it at work, and never have. Not a single individual I know personally uses it. I don't think a single on-line colleague I know uses it.

I'm signed up to literally dozens of web boards. Boating of all kinds--power and sail. Firearms forums. Climbing forums. Home theater forums. Forums related to my avocation, which is all things computer and networking. Various other special interest forums. More run vBulletin than any other single web board sofware suite. But there are others represented, as well.

Of all the browser troubles I ever see reported, trouble on the part of IE users is reported more often than that by the users of all the other browsers combined. Added to that is the fact that IE has an extra exploit vector, that none of the other browsers have.

So keep using it if you want. My recommendation, based on what I believe to be sound reasoning, is to use something else.

Jim
