IE 8 update: 1 step forwards 2 steps back 2 steps forwards again.

Update on IE 8 standard support - IE will now render in standards mode by default, without any silly meta tag. [more inside]

Question formatting browser bug

A question about American Girl currently on AskMeFi's front page appears to be looking rather funky in MSIE6. (Yes, I know, use Firefox, but I'm on a Windoze machine at work, so that's where I'm noticing it.)

"Net Timeout" Error Loading Mefi in Firefox -- IE Fine

I can't load metafilter in Firefox. Internet Explorer loads it fine. Non-tabbed browsing is killing me. Help! (more inside)

Request to update MetaTalk posting page for IE.

Dear Matt: given that most people here use IE, when will you modernize the MetaTalk posting page? You've known for ages that anyone hitting the "Back" button to edit their post will lose everything because of IE browser settings.

When will it be as easy as the MetaFilter one? How is someone who knows no HTML supposed to post to MetaTalk with the appropriate links, bold and italic emphases and whatever?

Problem opening MeTa links in a new window in IE6.

IE6, running on Win98SE. I have "open links in a new window" selected in my profile customization, but they open in the same window anyway.

Browser problems

OK, assuming I'm not being banned by the Management, I can no longer use Mefi in Opera or IE 5.0. When logged in, all I see is a sea of blue or a sea of brown (Metatalk), on what appears to be a huge Web page. as I scroll down, single words appear very VERY far apart. Is this a cruel joke?

IE has a huge, gaping hole

IE has a huge, gaping hole that allows executable files to be downloaded and run on the computers of browsers.

Pynnonen revealed that the bug lies in IE's processing of Internet addresses and "header" information that tells the browser what type of file it is handling. The flaw is particularly dangerous because it can be exploited using ordinary Web page code, without help from JavaScript or other scripting programs, he said.

thanks to the wonder of non-disclosure agreements, we won't know the precise nature of the bug (yet), but this one sounds bad.

MeFi and MeTa should be standards-compliant.

How about a standards-compliant version of MetaFilter or MetaTalk?

Disclaimers: (1) ignominious self-link; (ii) tested in Internet Explorer 5.1 and Netscape 6, should work in all CSS-compliant browsers; (c) guaranteed to look hideous in Netscape 4 et al; (IV) XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS validated by W3C.

Cannot edit in IE 5.5

I recently switched to IE 5.5, and I've found that when I "go back to fix a problem" in a followup post, there's nothing there to edit. So I'm stuck with what I wrote the first time.

Oddly enough, I *can* go back to fix a problem on an original post. Is there a difference in how you're doing that on original posts and on followups?
