Hi List,

I finally "bit the bullet" and upgraded from IE 6 to IE 7 yesterday. I am using XP Home and JFW 9.0 with the latest update. I have Tab Browsing turned off and I have the Fishing Filter turned off.

   I am having two issues, but not consistently:

1. When I try to go to a web page, especially my Internet Banking site, JAWS seems to lose focus. All I get is one line, but, if I press Shift Tab, then the whole page, complete with links, comes into focus.

2. Sometimes, when I go to a secure web site, such as my Internet Banking site, I get a message telling me that there are both secure and insecure things here; then, it asks if I want to view the insecure ones as well. I can click on Yes or No, so I click on Yes. Then, I get another similar message with an OK button, which I click on. Is there a way to stop all of this?

   Thanks for any help,

Don --
