Problems with internet explorer 8

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I couldn't see this thread, if it has been asked before my apologies.

    I'm struggling to read and reply on arrse when using IE8. On the forum pages I have to be running not in "compatability mode" otherwise the advert banner at the bottom covers most of the last person's post.
    When replying I have to run in compatbility mode (or whatever its called) because once the textbox is full, although I can continue typing I can not see what has been typed. I can scroll down and read, but as soon as I start typing again the textbox has a fit and scrolls me back up to the top.

    Obviously the main answer is to use firefox (or chrome), which I usually do. However, I still have to use IE8 at times and was wondering if there was an easy fix?
  2. The same happens to me. I love it! :)
  3. Yes, Good CO has mentioned this, it's an IE8 thing, he's trying to sort out.

    There's no quick fix as far as I'm aware beyond what you've already identified (Firefox, Chrome etc). I have to use IE at work and get the same problem but am fine at home on Chrome.

    Good CO knows about the problem though.
  5. Excellent - thank you. I thought he must know about the problem, as it must be a few months old now, but I couldn't find a thread. Maybe my search skills need some work.
