Having to use Google Chrome to access the Cafe - Internet Explorer tells me username doesn't exist! Anyone else getting similar issues?

IE is often glitchy, which is why I never use it.

Mind, for all I'm always extolling the virtues of firefox (I particularly value its ad-blocker, which more than offsets the fact that it can be a bit slow) I hit a problem the other day when buying an airline ticket. Firefox insisted I could only buy a ticket for someone under fifteen. That was the only tick-box available. I had to go into Opera before it allowed me to buy tickets for an adult. Very odd.

Having similar like problems elsewhere with safari. I think it has to do with the latest javascript updates as I have heard of a lot of issues.

Are you sure you're using the right user name, Del -- you recently changed it, back when we had that trouble with spambots, so your user name is no longer delboy. I'm guessing you're using the automatic login feature? Just a thought. Other than that, I don't have any ideas about what could be causing the problem. Maybe it would help to empty your browser cache? I used to find IE would get cranky if I didn't empty the cache every so often.

What Oz says about the latest js update is also true. I don't know what the answer is. Sorry undecided

Anyone on Windows 7 also needs to be wary of Service Pack 1. That's been causing horrendous problems for some people (but none at all for others).

The only probs I had with IE was slowness but now with IE8 it's faster than Opera and Firefox on my system. Firefox tended to crash during an online scrabble game I like at http://www.Itsyourturn.com

I started using Chrome a while back because IE was painfully slow, but Chrome's been steadily getting slower and slower and now Shockwave crashes within it every few minutes, so it's back to IE...

By the way, Ed, I think I was using my wrong name - I'll can't remember what I'm now called (but I did keep the email, so I can find out). Thanks for the reminder.

It did help some to do a defrag, clean caches, clear cookies and history...but it only somewhat helped. This latest java is kind of wonky at times and I anticipate a new version soon
