Default What's up with eBay?

I recently started having problems with eBay web pages, so I upgraded my browser from Microsoft IE6 to IE8. The upgrade made things even worse. I'm not having problems with any other sites. Does anyone know what's going on?

Ebay doesn't look any slower to me. It could be your ISP (service provider). Have you got another computer you can try, or get a friend to bring round a laptop?

I run Linux on my laptop and desktop PC and have no problems with eBay in Firefox despite the less popular OS I run.

I'd try Google Chrome or Firefox if you are running Windows XP.

What exactly is the problem you are having with eBay?

The computer I'm having eBay problems with is an XP machine. I have a laptop XP that's having the same problem. Ironically, I dusted off my old Win98 computer that has IE6, and it works fine on eBay.

Newsflash: I discovered that enabling "Compatibility View" and then disabling "Compatibility View" makes the problem go away on my XP machines. Go figure. Now I can put my Win98 machine back on the shelf.

I build websites for a living and can assure you kevinkr is providing good advice.

Yeah, but what's this "Compatibility View"? Is that an Internet Exploder thing?

Looks like it. Quote from Microsoft;

Compatibility View

Internet Explorer 8 is a new release and some websites may not yet be ready for the new browser. Click the Compatibility View toolbar button to display the website as viewed in Internet Explorer 7, which will correct display problems like misaligned text, images, or text boxes. This option is on a per site basis and all other sites will continue to display with Internet Explorer 8 functionality. When you click on the Compatibility View button for a site, you don’t need to do it again as the next time you visit that site the browser will show it in compatibility mode. If for some reason you’d like to go back to browsing with Internet Explorer 8 functionality on that site, simply click the Compatibility View button again.
