View Full Version : !@#$%^ Internet Explorer

Ok, I normally use Firefox for my web browsing. However, once in awhile I run across something that requires IE. I'm trying to download a free song that I got for buying a pack of batteries at Walmart and, of course, the stupid site recognized that I was using Firefox and requested that I access it with IE. :banghead: I click on IE and a window pops up that says the page you requested cannot be viewed offline and asks if I want to connect or work offline.

First, I thought that was only a thing with dial-up. But I run dsl through a router. Plus, I have no problem getting online with Firefox. Even if I click the connect option (and yes, dsl is the type of connection that is selected under the drop down menu), I get nothing. Says dialing attempt unsuccessful. WTF? Anyone else ever have this problem?

Just hit connect and also check your Internet Options. Go to the Connections tab and see if you have a dial up connection and select the never dial a connection radio button.

Yep, already been through all that. Still nothing.

Nevermind, I figured it out on my own. For some strange reason, Zone Alarm was blocking IE. I didn't set it up to do that so I don't know how it ended up that way. Guess that should've been one of the first things I checked. lol Oh well, live and learn.

Not sure what the heck you guys are trying to say other than just being smartasses, NTTAWT. Funny thing is Zone Alarm in my kids PC decided to all of a sudden block their PC's IP address from accessing the wireless router. 2 different PCs and both the Zone Alarms changed things. That is weird. I've never had problems with ZA before.
