MSN Mail and IE7 Conflicts

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by jambalaya_crawfishpie, Apr 4, 2007.

  1. When I first log into MSN Mail everything with MSN works fine. The occurs
    when I launch IE7. While attempting to log into this discussion group using
    IE7, I was sent to the log in page. I tried to start typing my password and
    the MSN window would appear. I would click on the IE7 instance and attempt
    to log in and it would send me back to the MSN window. I closed the window
    it kept taking me to and it brought me to another MSN window. I was finally
    able to log into this discussion group, while still having one of my MSN
    windows up.

    This happens on various web sites. I think I first saw it happening on
    eBay. It sure gets annoying. I have had to close out the MSN instance, just
    to keep doing what I was attempting to do.

    I am not sure why this is happening, but I suspect certain web sites are
    doing things in the background causing releases or refreshes that cause MSN
    and IE7 to get confused about who is in control.

    Cant' duplicate it here..though I am seeing similar occurrences not in the confines of MSn software on Vista/IE7 and a few Msn sites redirecting to an additional password prompt in new or tabbed window from an existing window in the same area(Live Mail, Portfolio) and also Active X installation issues.

    Earlier this week I posted a response to another topic that server maintenance was occurring from Apr 2-7.

    I doesn't seem like yours is related but anything is possible when servers are down for upgrades.

    Possibly someone can add more concrete info.

    Since you also have the capability to run IE7 without MSn software, have you attempted that route to see if your problem is alleviated.

  5. When I get rid of all the MSN windows, the IE works fine. It just seems
    something is buggy in IE7 when used with MSN Explorer.

    Thank you for your responses!
