is defective control menu in IE& fixed yet?

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by gardenerstouch, Sep 18, 2007.

  1. In IE 7, the control menu activated by clicking the upper left corner of
    each window frequently causes the program to crash. This menu is frequently
    used by voice recognition software and is the only way to close, minimize,
    maximize, or restore an IE 7 window. Has this bug been fixed yet?

    I've never heard such a bug being mentioned before.

    Windows version?

    I'm not aware of any such bug, and it doesn't crash on me.

    Do you have XP or Vista? (You need to include that basic information
    when you ask about IE 7, please.)

  5. Windows XPsp2. The bug has been a common complaint among Dragon users, and
    is the primary reason I still use IE6. I would upgrade if that bug were
    fixed.

    Then it must be a Dragon (whatever that is) issue. I don't use Dragon,
    and I don't have the issue...

  7. WinXPsp2. It's a common complaint among Dragon users. It's the main reason
    why I have not upgraded to 7 yet, and I don't want to have to go through the
    complete system reinstall if I have to uninstall 7 again.

  8. Dragon Naturally Speaking (DNR)... it's the leading voice recognition
    software on the market. It interprets voice commands and dictation for the
    typographically inept people like myself. Although I haven't tested it out
    for myself, other Dragon users claim to have tested IE7 (on WinXP) with and
    without DNR, and the bug does exist. The command that most often caused
    problems for me was the minimize window command. I'd estimate that one out
    of ten times I used that command, IE7 crashed (froze). It then required a
    three fingered salute to close it. If it were just a Dragon issue, then it
    would be doing it on IE6 too, and I have had no problems using the command
    there.

    So you don't suppose your version of DNR may have a problem with IE 7?

  12. It was from their own forums that I got the idea that this problem is MS's.
    It looks like I'm at a dead end here, so I plunked down my ten bucks for the
    right to send an email directly to their technical support. I'll let you
    know what they say when I hear back from them.

  13. DNR 9.5... period.

  14. Potentially yes, but all DNR does (for the most part) is simply issue
    keyboard shortcuts that you would be doing from the keyboard, but assigns a
    vocal command that executes it. I can't see how that could be the problem.

  15. Thanks for the feedback, come back and let us know if you get this resolved.

    Good luck,
