Lol, why are you suggesting such a lame browser such as FF, guys. I mean, you seriously have problems with your eyes if you think it's good.

Don't know how to solve the issue @ hand,
but if you also don't like the idea of having a 3rd browser then perhaps a visit to FF's add-on page might make it more interesting.

says the expert on web technologies who uses <font> tags and thinks that 3 column layouts are "totally not in"

btw frodo may have clicked the little invader button which collapses the chat perhaps

Russ, I didn't click on the wee invader button.
And this problem affects several websites, not just AB.

I guess no-one knows how to fix IE then?

Is javascript disabled? Or maybe your antivirus settings are blocking specific sites/types of code etc? Otherwise i dunno.

It may be due to Avast after all (I'm not saying that's likely or not).

http://www.google.es/search?q=avast+ie

To check this, disable the Avast "web shield" temporarily and see if the problem disappears.

Hey Japo, thanks for your suggestion.

Avast is gone now. But is seems no matter what I use now (AVG, CA Internet Security, ZoneAlarm, Bullguard, Webroot), the problem is still there. IE blocks a lot of sites that used to run perfectly, but ff can still get them.

I wonder if, when deleting Kaspersky, it removed something that it shouldn't have. But I don't know how I could check that.

Go to "Internet options", and click on every "reset" or "default" option you see on every tab, specially in "advanced", and "security"--repeating the procedure after selecting each security "zone"). Also in "security", after selecting the "restricted sites" zone, click on "sites", and see what's in the list.
