Internet Explorer 8

Post by Gloria E »

Starting Sunday I've been unable to sign in to Comcast email, using either IE or Firefox. I contacted Comcast and they changed my password which I was able to sign in with using Firefox but not IE. I was told that something must be wrong with my settings in IE because it worked with Firefox. :scratch:

Now I can't get my mail from Windows Live Mail or Mail Washer Pro with IE set as my default email client. Please don't ask me to just change to Firefox, because my favorite browser is IE8. I don't care for Firefox and have refused to get the beta version because of that. Is it possible to do a System Restore to set things right.

I need serious help fixing getting email from Comcast while using IE8, please help fix this problem.

Have you deleted your cookies for the Comcast mail site, and any saved passwords (saved by the browser or by an add-on)? Those may be interfering with your using your new password.

Where will I find Browser Saved Passwords, I've never see that? Cookes have been deleted.

If you select Tools | Internet Options... and press Delete in the Browsing History section, you see this dialog:

Tick the Passwords check box to delete saved passwords.

Thanks Hans,
I've followed your advice and I'm happy to report that the problem has now been fixed. I've signed in on Comcast and receiving mail from Live Mail.
