View Full Version : Homepage problems

I am having problems with my homepage which takes ages to open and when it eventually does, behind the homepage is an action cancelled message. Have retyped my homepage address www.nzherald.co.nz in the internet connections but has not worked. Help.

You say you retyped www.nzherald.co.nz in the internet connections, where exactly are you typing that.

Why don't you go to the NZHerald website, wait until the page has loaded then go to Tools>Options and under Home page click the "Use current" button. Click OK to exit, close Internet Explorer, reopen and see if it has worked.

This is assuming you are using Internet Explorer, of course.

Just tried that S,same story,when I reopen it says "about blank"
When I say tried,I mean on your instructions,did it twice to make sure.

Well I just fired up Internet Explorer (I currently use Opera) and tried it and it worked fine for me.

How about clearing out your Cookies and Temp Internet Files, restart IE and try again?

Did anyone say what version of IE they are using? Mine is IE 6.0.
