Looking at the footer of my IE6 browser, it is happening now. Symptom: "Opening page http : //www ....." is being displayed Symptom: Gas gauge, all segments lit, still being displayed. Symptom: Upper right corner, Windows flag is still waiving. These symptoms are persisting. Toolbar 'STOP' has no effect. Toolbar 'Refresh' sometimes results in 'Done' indication in the footer. I have a few theories about this and I am trying to fix the blame on someone. I am a fossil, so my understanding has not progressed beyond HTML 3.0. It is my guess that IE6 (and I've seen this in IE7), cannot keep track of packets. Even when I force the browser to reload the entire page with each visit to the url, I see no change in the symptoms. Is any of this related to the firewall/internet security software? (Zone Alarm, AVG 7.5, SS&D 1.5) Is what is happening in the 'ether' causing some packets to be called out from the cache, but not properly slipped into the packet stream? Or is all this a necessary part of the internet strategy to treat this as an interactive session, and this preserves the linkage. Here at TS, this is merely an observation. However, encountering this with Yahoo!Finance is very aggravating when some of the hyperlinks are missing from the displayed page that are needed to move recursively within the portfolio section.
