    Hi all,

    Just downloaded and installed IE7 and have noticed a few issues (only a few!, I thought this had been beta'ered to death).

    The "open a new link in a new tab" does not work automatically. You can still right click and select a new tab be used, but I'm led to believe this should happen on it's own.

    Also, a more annoying problem is a second tier menu display issue.
    When I open a first tier dropdown menu, I can see all the options, however if I go to a second tier menu (if one's available) a blank see-through box appears (you can just see the outline shadow). If I them move over the second menu, then the options appear as I pass over them.

    Has anybody else experienced these problems and has anybody got any solutions.

    This is a genuine copy of IE7 downloaded off Microsoft website today.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I haven't used IE 7 enough to experience any bugs but I'm sure you'll find plenty. Just keep your eyes on the Windows Update site.:D

    I've just tried something and it has cured my submenu problem.

    I'm running the Alienware XP Skin on my PC. (I know, I should grow up, but it makes the bland XP interface look great).

    Anyway, I've just reverted to XP classic on a whim and my submenu's have returned.

    Now the question is, do I put up with boring XP skin or revert back to alienware and put up with submenu issue.

    mmm..decisions, decisions decisions.............

    Do you mean that if you click a hyperlink, a new Window appears rather than a tab? If so, they might have carried this over from IE6 , althought most would prefer a tab.

    In regard to IE6 it depends on how the hyperlink is coded. It can open the link in the same window or a new window. Im not sure if there would be code you could use to open a new tab though. :blink
