Another irritation has mysteriously cropped up while using this forum. I run Windows 7 Home, IE 9. I have a Favorite for this website, and several other forums set up on my Favorites Bar in IE. My usual practice with all the forums I follow, is to open IE, home page set to Google. I click on the Favorite Bar shortcut for the forum, which is set to the same url as the "New Posts" button on the forum controls. I look over the new posts list, and read what ever new posts interest me. When I'm finished with the forum, I click what ever button marks the forum 'Read' and go to the next forum. Lately when I do this on HMEM, I click the next forum Favorite Bar Link, and the IE window loads the new forum. As soon as the new forum is loaded, IE is launched in a new window to the HMEM page and it appears in front of the forum I had selected. This is an extreme irritation to me. It's not launching a new instance/window because HMEM is loading, not my home page Google. I have scanned my computer for malware,my antivirus is up to date, I've checked IE for addons, and launched each of my favorite bar links from each other and I cannot duplicate the issue except by following the procedure detailed above where I read and/mark HMEM read and move on. I cannot duplicate the problem with a second IE winstance running while I type this post. Bear in mind, I am a retired computer tech, and have worked in IT for 20+years, supporting OS from DOS to windows 7, and all major brands of computers including Desktops, Laptops Tablets and Servers. I have never seen anything like this that was not malware/webpage related. I have not had an adult beverage, yet! And I don't partake of any recreational chemicals extept burbon and old fashioned tobacco cigarettes... Any ideas?
