URGENT! how can i log onto website using IE?

Post by cupcake_love » Tue May 01, 2012 6:35 pm

dear anorak,
i have a superimportant and very urgent problem. i am currently trying to log onto a website using IE 8 (it says to only support IE 7 or higher) and it refuses to work. i have checked firewalls, cookies etc.
it won't let me access the page at all, but i get directly to "page can not be viewed". at first i thought it might be an incorrect address or the server was too busy, BUT firefox does let me enter, i just can't log on because the page doesn't support firefox!!!!!! i am going out of my mind. can someone please cast some light over this?

i'm sure it's not the actual website that's the problem (it's a government one). hopefully i'll be able to try on a different computer tomorrow, so until then i'll just have to wait :(. thanks though!

You have better faith in the competence of the government than I.

Are you using any filtering type add-ons in Firefox? EG. Noscript, Adblock Plus, Flashblock etc?
