Saving AVSIM pages with IE6?

Recommended Posts

There is definitely something broken with the way IE6 caches pages. With many pages (but not all) at AVSIM, when I click on "Back" , instead of instantly going back to the previously viewed page, IE6 redownloads the page. This also occurs when saving a page.I downloaded the page about the RCS/MAAM dispute -- which took a long time to dowwnload. So I saved it to read later while offline. It didn't exactly redownload ALL of the content -- but it still took quite a long time to save it and the lights on my external modem indicated that it was downloading something.The OPERA browser doesn't do this -- it goes back to the previous page instantly . But I hate the way in which OPERA saves pages - so I prefer to use IE .If only I could get the cache to work as it should!!Any ideas?Thanks Barry

Umm yea, don't use that abortion called IE. Use Mozilla, it saves pages just fine for me :)

Or you can go in and clear out your temporary internet files. It amazes me how so many people seem to have problems w IE6. Also, you are running the cumulative patch for IE6 correct?. Try these before beating something w a stick that isn't dead. LoL. Only thing nicer than IE is Netscape 7. Now if only I could remove IE without installing the dreaded SPK1.Bobby

Of course, I regularly clean out my temporary Internet files and have also downloaded the cumulative patch. The problem remains.Barry
