Hi Everyone, be aware that at the moment explorer 9 will not allow you to add posts or send messages to members.
I loaded it last week and have not been able to do so since--David Clark has been helpful and says they will have a fix soon.
I am using Safari web browser for this post.

The 64 bit version of IE9 under Win 7 (64 bit) works for me as well ... BUT you have to be in compatability mode. (Click the little icon at the top .. Looks like a torn sheet of paper)

Thanks for that info, I have been having the same trouble as John.
It is working now after using compatability mode.

It is to the right hand side of the box where you enter the web address. (The first is a mag glass, compatability mode is the swecond, Refresh the thirs and a X the fourth)

Hi, you can actually make your web address bar longer by positioning the cursor at the right hand end of the bar, where a left/right arrow appears, and then left click and hold, and then drag to your desired position left or right, and then release the left hand button.
 
I have my right hand side of the web address bar about mid way.
 
I have a little drop down arrow between the magnifying glass icon and the blue torn sheet of paper icon, in mine.
 
If you hover your cursor over the icons in the bar, you should get a description of their function.
 
Regards Nick.

I personally wouldn't use IE9, and haven't used IE since about IE6, prefer to use Firefox, so don't have those sort of problems

Interesting how Microsoft manages to pass the blame for it's NEW browser not rendering properly on to existing websites not being written to conform to it!

Probably explains why Microsoft's share of the browser market is now down to about 50% (from a near monopoly a few years back) and shows signs of continuing to fall away.

A snip of some of the actual wording from the Microsoft website and the text continues with the ways the issue can be resolved.
 
***************
Some websites may not behave as expected in Windows Internet Explorer 8 or in Windows Internet Explorer 9. This problem does not occur in earlier versions of Internet Explorer, and the affected websites continue to be displayed correctly and to work correctly in Windows Internet Explorer 7.

For example, you may experience any of the following symptoms in Internet Explorer 8 or in Internet Explorer 9:
  • Menus, images, or text are in the wrong positions on some websites.
  • Some website features do not work.
  • You receive script error messages on some websites.
  • Internet Explorer stops working on some websites.
Some websites are designed for older browsers. You may experience compatibility issues on these sites until they are updated for Internet Explorer 8 or for Internet Explorer 9.
Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 include a Compatibility View feature that displays websites that were created for older browsers as they were designed to appear with Internet Explorer 7. You can enable Compatibility View in Internet Explorer or on the Web server...
