You need to let us know ...

what Web Browser you are using and it would really be helpful when having problems such as this to post links to a few of the sites. The problem could well be the actual web page over which you have no control.

You might try installing another Web Browser (Opera, firefox, Chrome, etc.) to see if you have the same problems with one of them as you have with the browser you are currently using.

cant access few tabs ( part II )

(im using windows XP professional, service pack3, 32-bit version )

first of, ty edward odaniel for responding to my problem and i apologize for not gettin back to ya any my current problem so bad,i couldnt write back because whenever i tried to click on "reply" just wouldnt open anything!
and with frustration mounting as ever, i also tried to use " get expert support" tab and once again, it wouldnt leme go nowhere, as i would get stuck waitin for "leave the message" tab after typin name and email addy n stuff..message window just wouldnt open..

anyways, u asked me about wot browser im using,its IE8 at the moment..but as per
ur suggestion, i also tried to use "opera" and "firefox" but with same problem...some
tabs just wouldnt open.

and some video applications ask me to download "flash player"... i have installed and
then un install and then reinstalled adobe flash player 10.4 somethin quite a few times already..thinkin, perhaps there was some problem with download...

keep in mind some tabs would open just fine without any problem whereas some just wouldnt open at for example the current above mentioned incident with CNET while tryn to respond to ur msg..the "reply" tab just wouldnt open.

i think i have tried to explain my problem to best of my abilities..however, if u have any further question regarding that..please feel free to ask BUT I WANT THIS PROBLEM TO GET RESOLVED... jump in please anyone!

Still vague.

- Reply to a post here doesn't open a tab. It uses Ajax-technology inside the current tab. So middle-click to open a new tab won't work; only the normal left click works.
- I can't find any "get expert support" link at the moment, so I can't see how that should work. But, from your description, it doesn't look like a separate tab either.

Problems with Flash are unrelated.
