IE7Beta2 randomly decides not to finish loading pages

    told to put it here instead, so here goes :)

    This is a pretty serious problem that I've noticed in IE7Beta2 (but only in
    Vista, not in XP)

    Basically, there is about a 20% chance that any given page will refuse to be
    loaded by IE7. It seems random. For example, www.netbeans.org simply does
    not want to load fully. I know the server connection is made, because the
    title bar is correctly updated, and if I go to "View Source", I can see the
    first five or so lines of the source, but it just hangs there indefinitely.
    Other sites, for example the HydraIRC homepage, will load about halfway
    through, and then the second half of the page will just be garbled HTML.

    I know this isn't a network problem because Firefox handles these pages just
    fine, in the same OS at the same time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. It's a very annoying problem having
    to load up Firefox for one fifth of the time because IE refuses to do it.


    Thanks!

    is the phishing filter causing the problem.

  3. Actually, I have disabled the phishing filter, so I don't think that is it
    (unless disabling it causes a problem, but that shouldn't happen either).
