or just want to stir the pot? First off, I use Firefox and not IE. I'd wonder what happens when you just add it to your bookmarks...or "favorites" rather than that bar. Does it get lost as a favorite too? Make sure you just link to the simple url. Also make sure you aren't flushing your browsing history upon exit. I'll guess there's some tool setting that's causing this. You'll also be better off posting this in the browser forums. When you use the terms "liberal" or "conservative" here, all you'll get is grief. Good luck.
I have Windows XP sp3 with IE7. The only thing wrong with it is that my Fox News icon on the link bar in IE7 keeps losing it's link and won't work. I have to bring up Fox and redrag it to the link bar. Does that sound like a virus? It only happens to that one. Why won't it stay? I've had it a long time and just recently it stopped working.
