    The icons on my Favorites List are scrambled - some are correct but many
    have been switched. Is there a way to correct them? FavOrg used to do it
    with XP but I can't find something like this for Vista. Thanks.

  2. That gets a LOT better with IE8 - which is currently in BETA release.

    In IE7, I had to save the icons I wanted to use in their own folder,
    and when I set an icon for a Favorite item, I would make that item
    READ ONLY so it wouldn't change.

    Thank you - guess I'll have to wait for IE8 to get more stability and just
    ignore the scrambled icons until then. Any idea when IE8 will be released?

  4. It's pretty darned good in the BETA version!! There is an IE7
    Compatibility mode for those web pages that don't comply to its
    standards - and its standards are not proprietary, they are
    industry-wide standards and the browser is very picky.

    There has been NO official statement about release date.

    I would guess it will be after the end of the year.

    I think I'll give it a try - it is Beta 2. I can always return to IE&,
    right?! Thanks.

    Hello Ryka

    Deleting the IE Browsing History should clear the favicons for the I
    Favorites icons, and allow them to reload as you go back to the sites
    This tutorial will help show you how to if needed


    Hope this helps

  7. It will install as a Windows Update... you won't find it in Programs
    and Features. Like any other update, it can be uninstalled.

    I installed it successfully and like it! No need to return to IE7 I hope.
    And the icons corrected themselves for all but one.

  10. The only site I have problems with is Google Groups. When I first
    loaded one of the Vista groups, it automatically set itself (with a
    balloon message also) to Compatibility mode.

    However, when I select a thread in tree view, some of the functions on
    the page won't work at all. I've already submitted a bug report (I'm
    a registered beta tester).

    Otherwise, I'm quite happy with it.

  13. Go to any windows.vista. group.

    Click a thread.

    Make sure you use TREE view.

    Try to "Expand all" or "Collapse all".

    In any box showing a post try "More options".

    All three of those are dead here.

    I went to Windows.vista.support and had no problem seeing the posts. I'm not
    sure what you mean by "tree view". I was just given a notice that I may not
    post on the group because I am not a member and that the group is for
    computer professionals. I got nothing when I clicked options but that may be
    because I am not a member?
