To add to the IE9 Mystery!

28 Dec

I was on the IE9 browser in response to Tom McNulty's email that no browser he has tried yet shows him any articles or photos of the EFB – and absently right clicked in the big grey blank space of the article page I was on and noticed I had Bing translator available so for kicks as Errol might say, I clicked on translate this page and damned if it didn't result in that page's articles and photos appearing! English was auto-detected for the page and translated into English, as well… if you view the two pages side by side, the first window shows the blank page until the translator finishes turning it into English, too! What is going on here is so weird… Just sayin'…

    Cool! It worked! I just hope that Microsoft will clear that problem soon!

    I had a lot of problems with Internet Explorer some years ago and I switched to Firefox and never had a problem since. I would never go back to IE, just in my humble opinion!

    I'm finally able to see Blog postings again by clicking on “Translate with Bing.” A few weeks ago, though, I was using IE9 (still am), and could also see Blog posts without using Bing. I wonder what has changed? Just asking the techies out there! Lynn

    It is the strangest thing! I have to use Bing to translate an English language page into ENGLISH to see all of the pages in IE9! I have no trouble in Firefox!

    It's Bing's fault, not Hope's. You see folks, they were on the road to Firefox together when your humble servant realized that he had downloaded the wrong version of Firefox. Dang it it don't work now. Of course that means that IE9 really sucks. They should rename it IEOOPS

    The funny thing is, you can use Bing's translator to make the pages appear normal in IE9 if you translate from English to, um, ENGLISH! This never happened on The Road to Firefox…

    I cannot see anything posted on IE9 for the blog. This is ridiculous but, I can see everything in Google Chrome, though.
