Organize Bookmarks does not work in IE8

Post by costero » Thu Aug 21, 2008 3:39 pm

I installed the latest beta of IE8, and found that it disables to Avant's Organize Bookmarks function. When I click it in Avant, an empty window opens -- and just sits there, empty. When I uninstall IE8, the Organize Bookmarks function is restored.

I can't confirm the problem here.
Have you tried to install the latest version of Avant?
IE8(Pro), Microsoft Security Essentials

I am running 11.6 Build 20.

Are you saying that you can not replicate this problem?

The problem is IE 8 [beta] is the problem it is very buggy i tried it and i had the same crap. But it didnot affect my avant ver 11.6 Build 20. So as i thought IE is hopless. PS this is my opinion based on my experience with IE 8 [beta] says it all :mrgreen:

Beta software often tends to be buggy.

costero, are you using IE favorites or Avant bookmarks?

I am using IE favorites.

(And, I don't want to give that up, because I use Zinkmo to sync my favorites so that I can access them remotely, from any computer, even those that don't have Avant installed.)

The only thing I may suggest for now is to download the latest alpha version of Avant here.

I installed the Avant alpha 11.7, and it behaves the same way with IE8: I cannot Organize Bookmarks.

I hate IE even more now tranfered my faves back to avant 11.6 Build 20 and it works great except the back button so i am sticking with avant.Sory if i upset anyone i was just telling you guys what i went through with IE 8 . Does anyone know if i can delete or dissable IE altogether because sometimes it launches when avant is clearly the default browser ????????? I do know it is part of os but i hate it.

I am using Avant 11.7 and I can organize my bookmarks without a problem. So it might just be a problem with IE8 Beta2 and 11.6.

I encountered the same problem after installing IE8 Beta today [Sept. 13, 2008] with Avant 11.7 build 7 [on Vista Ultimate] already installed and working fine.

The bookmark bar would appear yet it was blank. The easiest fix was to uninstall IE8 and the bookmark bar worked fine after restarting.

For those that installed IE8 and want to uninstall, you'll need to open the Control Panel then Programs and Features. On the left pane, click 'show updates' and look for IE8, then uninstall and reboot.

Hope that helps.

P.S. IE8 also added RSS feeds to Outlook 2007. If you're using Outlook 2007 - click on tools, account settings, rss feeds and delete the new entries.

I don't think you're having the same problem being described here We No Speak. But, it does sound like the issues hornakapopolis described on his site here:

Look at the bottom under If You're Using Internet Explorer 8. I tihnk it's just a matter of a simple rename.

Hmmm...

Very possible, thanks. It's not unusual for me to confuse these things. Getting old is rough...

I was only using IE8 for a short time - too many of the web sites I visit regulary weren't compatible yet. When IE8 is stable and becomes a required Windows update, maybe the issue I had will disappear.

Maybe I should start another thread for this, but under View/Toolbars I have both SnagIt 9 and Acrobat 9. When I click SnagIt, the Acrobat toolbar appears and when I click on Acrobat, nothing happens - I can't get SnagIt to work. Weird...

[They both work fine in IE7]
