I am having a problem when I respond to Arduino forum threads with I.E. 10.
While responding to a thread, if I go to a new tab and access a WEB site to get some information, then continue with some comments and then select Post, my screen goes blank rather than going back the thread.
If I don't go to another tab to get information, I can post my reply and it is accepted by the Arduino form software as normal.

Can someone please suggest a fix or setting change to I.E.?

Note: I had this problem with I.E. 9 also.
        FireFox does not have this problem.


The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!

Then the problem is not the website. It is InternetDestroyer.

That might be your personal opinion but it doesn't help the many IE users much.
All browsers are different and it's a web developer's task to make sure that their web sites work in the browsers they intend to support. If it doesn't work they can hardly say it's the browsers fault and that the browser will have to adapt to their web site.
They can say "go crap yourself if you're using IE because I hate IE users" or "Please don't use IE because we can't support it" but I haven't seen the Arduino forum say any of that.
Or is your ignorant comment about "InternetDestroyer" to be taken as an official Arduino statement?

No more so than your ignorant comments.

Resolved!
Thank you Tom Carpenter!

I got IE to work again.

In IE go to "forum.arduino.cc". When it fails to load with the funny tokens in the url, press F12 (it should open a window of strange code, but the code doesn't matter).
There should be a menu at the top of the window called "Cache"

In that menu click the following options one by one:

"Clear browser Cache"
"Clear browser Cache for this domain"
"Clear cookies for this domain"
"Clear session cookies"

If you refresh the page, the forum will load. You should be able to then log in to the forum and it will work. I found that if you are logged in to the forum and then visit the arduino.cc home page, when you come back to the forum it won't work, but if you repeat those steps, it starts working again.

Thanks!
Your procedure works for me as well. But this proves that the Arduino pages have a coding problem. That's independent of the personal like/dislike level against IE.

There's also the problem of being logged in, opening another instance of the website to look at the products page for example, and having the website log you out of the original instance.  That is really annoying.
