Problems with viewing Blogs

I've had some of you express concern that you are having problems viewing some digital scrapping blogs. The wonderful Linda over at Bon Scrapatit Designs has done a wonderful job explaining it and offering some suggestions. Apparently the problem is that the newest version of Internet Explorer is fighting with the Google Followers Feature on many of our blogs. The problem with this is that it's YOU who is losing!!!! :( For a better description check out Linda's Blog. I haven't heard of problems from any of the other major browsers, so the easiest solution may be to try a different browser. A couple of GREAT and FREE ones are Mozilla Firefox and Chrome by Google. Both of these are easy to use and are more secure than Internet Explorer.

In the meantime, if for whatever reason you are unable to download this kit due to these problems, please send me an email at flowerscrap@gmail.com and I will be happy to email you the direct links, or just send you a coupon for it once it is in the store.

I have the same problem and it is so annoying. I just go back a page and the blog opens up for me with no problems. Thanks for sharing -- just another think IE does wrong lol.

Thanks for mentioning this. I noticed that I had some trouble viewing certain blogs with IE. Google Chrome is a cool browser. I'm liking it so far, and haven't had any trouble.

Good deal Ms. Deanna!!! I just saw your note and I am more than happy that you did post as I did not like it when it was suggested that I remove the FOLLOW gadget to eliminate IE's trouble!

SO nice to see your readers are feeling the same way and have found alternatives!!!

Thanks Deanna and have a LOVELY day sweetie!

Hugs,
Linda :-D

Thanks Deanna, after reading Linda's blog yesterday, I downloaded and installed Firefox. So now I'm toggling between AOL, IE and Firefox. Sometime AOL and IE will let me on the specific blogs (yours, Lindas and Nicoles included) and other times,no go. Wonder if it has to do with if the blog user is on the Google Follower program or not.

I personally would not use internet explorer. last time I tried it, I ended up with a nasty virus, but using firefox I have had no problem.
