    opening multiple browser windows


    Hi,

    What controls whether a new browser window is opened or the same broswer window is re-launched? I used to be able to open multiple browser windows, but now all windows get re-launched in the same browser window preventing me from having two websites up at the same time. I have IE 5.5 on win98.

    Thanks.

    • f'lar agrees : win98? really? and you surf the web with it? You know that they're not even patching security flaws for it anymore?

    Hi I am a newbie and all thumbs about softwares. Please help. I use to be able to log in to multiple yahoo accounts at one time using IE but since I downloaded the latest version when I open Yahoo Mail or Hotmail all browser windows showed the same ID acct. How do I go back to the old version? thanks.

    What was "toilety" about it? The fact that windows is old in technology years, or that you can install .NET on windows 98?

    yes but HOW do you change the cookies settings. i tried deleting the cookies but the problems persist. it's even worse now. last time when the browser is closed the account is automatically closed & u have to re log in. now if u forget to LOG OUT. when u clicked hotmail the acct opens back.

    Heh, jdk was the guy that introduced me to Devshed in the first place. He was one of the first moderators on the PHP and Perl forum. Good kid, but boy did he have an awful taste in music.
