1. When in IE9 and I try and open an excel file, it won't open. I have tried all files (to make sure it isn't just 1 rogue file). The only way to open an excel file is to open Excel first, then through Excel itself, Open file. I can't even open an excel file from email.
2. I can't open URLs in my browser that are pdfs. Again, the only way I can view these pages is to save the page as a PDF and then I can open it via Adobe.
I have tried Mozilla and it is fine. So my long term solution is probably to move over to Mozilla (or Chrome).
However, for the timebeing I have all of my faves, passwords etc set up in IE9.
Any tips welcome - both on how to fix the 2 issues in IE9, as well as potentially importing my favourites into Mozilla or Chrome.
I had this problem too, but I'm sorry to say I don't recall the exact solution. It may have been firewall related. I seem to think that I was using ZoneAlarm and it was being a little over protective. I couldn't get to shared drives/printers either.
I use Comodo now.
Sorry I can't be more precise.
