I would estimate about 10 % of the times I open Internet Explorer, the drop down menus : File, Edit, View, etc, are greyed out and unusable. I have tried changing my url page, and reloading the page, but neither will affect the menus. I have to exit Internet Explorer, then restart the program to clear the issue.
This is a separate issue, but I don't see any place else to put it. A few years ago when I was working at Apple Computers, a representative of some business organization came to lecture us on our most valuable customers - the ones who make complaints. Many companies go out of business without ever knowing why. The only way to find out what people think is to listen, and the only ones who bother to talk to you are the ones making complaints. Your company is insanely stupid about this. I really only went through this elaborate nightmare of signing up for this bug report so I could tell you this. The bug report is real enough, but there have been other problems that I have started to report in the past and ended up giving up because you make it so difficult. Yes, I understand that you are a big organization with many customers and that it is difficult to screen complaints from the public. Tough cookies, Microsoft, someday you are going to go out of business without ever knowing why.
