  • Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 problems – and Adobe Flash updates

    Posted on November 15th, 2013 at 07:08 woody Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    This just in from EP:

    Adobe has released new security updates for Flash Player versions 11.7 and 11.9 for Windows in Adobe security bulletin APSB13-26: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb13-26.html

    There are some problems with Internet Explorer 11 under both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

    First problem – Google and Outlook Web Access don’t seem to work correctly with IE11 on Win8.1 as mentioned at The Register site: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/10/21/internet_explorer_11_breaks_google_outlook_web_access/

    Second problem – blurry fonts occurring on IE11 on Win7 SP1 as mentioned in this recent Softpedia.com article: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Internet-Explorer-11-for-Windows-7-Blurry-Font-Issues-398251.shtml

    In short, those using any version of Windows with Adobe Flash Player should install the most recent flash player security updates. And those using Windows 7 should be using either IE9 or IE10 but do not upgrade Internet Explorer to IE11 until the problems with IE11 get resolved.

     Thanks, as always, EP!
