Working fine for me....
I use firefox (knocks IE into the stone age in my opinion) so that may be the reason.

a firefox is a genetically-finagled mutant creature made by the US Army for use in various 'overseas actions'. The FIreFox was first used in the Vietnam War, fired into enemy territory from the underside of jets. However, many were captured and to this day have yet to be released by the North Vietnamese forces. The US claimed that the first Gulf War was won mainly because of the use of 'Smart-Firefoxes'...footage from which many of us saw on the telebox news. These hybrid creatures...part animal/part missle were launched from submarines and could target to pinpoint accuracy the mole of the side of the face of an Iraqi generalisimo.

Rumours persist that the current model of firefox is being developed at a secret Skunkworks airfield in Nevada...but the US government says this is bunkum and they are simply testing hot air balloons shaped like porcupines.

Hope that explanation helps clear things up?
