IE8 Beta crash!

Filed under: Uncategorized — @ 3:18 pm

I have been using IE8 Beta for some time now, I really enjoy all the cool new features they have implemented in it. The Addon features for social networking was very good and I used them a lot. Anyway, the point I was getting at is the IE8 crashes. If you cut and past the URL text in to address bar, IE8 crashes.  One good news is IE8 is ability to restore to its last known state and that is also a very good feature I love. Since I wasn’t doing lot of URL pasting, I didn’t pay attention to it at all. I have safari (I know what you are thinking Safari???, I use Mac at home) so I was ok.

Yesterday I was doing some research and I had the same crash. So I decided to hunt down the problem that was causing the problem. I faithfully googled it and got the answer. In case you are facing the problem, here is what you need to do

1. Go to Tools –> Options

2. Under Content –> Choose Settings under AutoComplete

3. Check Web Address

That is it. No more crashes.

have fun.
