Internet Explorer For Mac Problems
Posted 14 June 2007 - 12:09 PM
I seem to be having a problem with my IE for Mac where it seems to go straight to the MSN homepage for some reason but isn't able to download it which means I then have to force quit and go onto Sarafi instead
Tne fact that my homepage on IE is supposed to be Google rather than MSN is confusing but worst of all this unwanted change has made it impossible to use my IE altogther.
I also seem to have lost all of my bookmarks which have been mysteriously replaced by unwanted ones such as Apple, MSN websites and Microsoft websites - none of which I have ever bookmarked before.
Is there anything that I can do to fix this without losing my previous bookmark and scrapbook listings?
Many thanks in advance for any tips.

1. Make a new folder on your desktop
2. Open IE click on favorites tab on the left
3. select all of your favorites in the list
4. drag them to the folder on your desktop
5. quit IE and open up safari
6. click on the book logo in the upper left corner (to the left of your bookmarks bar)
7. Drag everything in your folder on the desktop onto the bookmarks bar, (or wherever you want your bookmarks)
8. laugh at how pitiful IE is and enjoy safari!

Thanks for your response and advice. I agree that Safari is much better than IE and it is only thanks to the fact that I also have Sarari that I am still able to surf the web but, importantly, I also have a lot of stuff in the IE scapbook (which is a facility Safari is sadly lacking) which I would still like to be able to access if at all possible.
Unfortunately, No.2 in your list is impossible since opening IE simply takes me to the MSN homepage...... which isn't able to download anyway and simply keeps me in 'e-limbo' waiting for it to finish.....which it never does. In the end, I have to Force Quit IE which leaves me with no way of getting into IE to carry-out steps 3 to 8.
But Oh how I would LOVE to get to No.8!!!!

Opera will even handle torrents. Not very well compared to dedicated programs like Azuerus, but still....

Thanks for the info, it is much appreciated.
Would you happen to know how I can overcome the IE problems that I am currently having and how I can save/restore the IE bookmarks that are on there right now? First I have to get into IE when it seems stuck on downloading the MSN page (which I have never bookmarked!) whenever I open it.
Any suggestions would be very welcome,

And you should definitely consider switching to a different browser after that. Either Firefox or Opera...both are quite nice. @unimatrix, I think Opera is the fastest on any OS...
Good luck. :-)

im afraid i dont think you can get ie on a mac with out parels or wm fusion , but if so, i recomend using Wine, (winehq.org ???) but if you are going to be using any type of virtual mech or thats know that it's always gonna lag,
if ms did make ie for mac well, idk , mayby its just a bad broswer that what i think
