IE 8 BUGS !!

By sam.suren ·
I was using IE6 since long.. then i thought of upgrading IE and installed IE8 beta 1. The browser by default had no address bar or menu bar being shown into it, but by clicking "Emulate IE7" you can use it much like IE7- in my case the "IE7 emulate" button was also grayed.. So finally i resolved to use IE7. Hence Uninstalled IE8-restart-IE7 install - restart.. bt the new installed browser also did not have any address bar or menu bar...!! So finally rolled back to IE6..which by luck has the add. bar and menu bar. I guess this is a registry entry problem, and tried solving..-all in vein. THIS IS SURELY A BUG IN IE8 !! Please help me out.. Thanks a ton!!

Of course it has bugs; it's a beta.

by CharlieSpencer In reply to IE 8 BUGS !!

You do know that a 'beta' release means it is a test version and probably has bugs, don't you? No one is going to fix these for you. You're supposed to report the bugs to Microsoft so they can fix them in the final release (in theory).

Let's get this straight - if you don't know how to report bugs to M$, then what the **** are you doing running a beta version of M$ software? And why come bleating to TR?

Go back to the MS site page where you down loaded IE8

by CharlieSpencer In reply to ok.. if dats d case!!

Try looking there. Also, have you checked to see if there is a "report bugs" link on the help menu?

Your best bet is to use IE 7 until MS releases the final version of IE 8 and avoid beta software if you don't want to deal with reporting bugs.

I would never use a beta one anything

by DanLM In reply to IE 8 BUGS !!

MS, FireFox, or any other type of software... Just because of the experience your having. Yes, I do use beta's... ****, I'm on beta 5 right now of firefox... But, at least wait till beta 2 to install a product.
