Buttons not displaying properly / not working

    Hello, I'm finding some odd problems since upgrading to IE 7. For example,
    on some websites there are buttons that work fine on computers running IE 6,
    but the buttons are cut off on IE 7 and therefore can't be used. Here's an
    example from the People.com website. If you try to do one of their pop
    quizzes, you can answer the first question, and the submit button works. But
    when it comes back with the answer, you can't use the Next Question button
    because it is cut off at the bottom. To illustrate, the URL is:


    Needless to say, it's not crucial that I get this particular button to work
    (LOL), but it's indicative of a problem and I'd like to figure out how to
    solve it before the same thing happens on an important (ahem!) site. I've
    duplicated the situation on a computer running IE 6 and it works just fine,
    but I actually like IE 7 overall, if I can just work out the bugs.

    Then why doesn't it happen when using IE 6? That's the part I don't

  4. IE7 sticks much closer to the specs for Internet sites than does IE6. This
    is causing some sites to need to update their code.

    I guess in the long run that's a good thing. :) One site at a time...
    Thanks for the replies!

  6. In the meantime you can try using the IE Developer Toolbar
    to Disable: All CSS. That may allow you to at least see all of a page's
    content even if the presentation is plainer than what was designed.

    There is a link to the toolbar here:


    Good luck
