So much for IE 7

October 18, 2006 9:14 pm

I installed the offical IE 7 release a few minutes ago, ran it, and it immediately started consuming 50% CPU time. The part of the UI where the Tabs get rendered (and the address bar / stop / refresh / search) was frozen and I couldn’t get the Favorites area to pop up.

Not good. Looks like I’m going to stick with IE 6 / Firefox for a long time.

Can you please tell me more about your experince? Are you running with any browser extensions, or add ins? Have you tried disabling any of your extensions? I really want to help, but I need to better understand what you are experiencing so I can make some recommendations.

Please feel free to contact me. [email address given, deleted for privacy]

Ok, it sounds like there is a problem with the extensions you have on your machine. Can you try adding them back in one at a time to isolate which one is causing the performance problem?

I disabled all add-ons and re-enabled them one by one. So far I’ve enabled all but the IE DOM Explorer and IE Developer toolbar add-ons and things seem to work well.

Thanks for the help. I’ll keep the IE related add-ons disabled for now. IE 7 is back on my box!
