What do you mean? You had a problem with IE. Did you post a message in the
MS newsgroup?

No? Why not?

Yes? Did you get a response that worked for you, maybe something other than
using compact mode?

Again:

Did you post a message in the MS newsgroup?

Go back to sleep.

You're not helping. You're incapable of helping so you ought not even try.

My issue isn't IE caused by IE. If it is caused by IE, and you're a computer
wiz like you claim, then tell me where the setting is that I need to change.

I'm actually pretty good at fixing this kind of stuff but can't find the
setting that I need. I suspect there is no setting, and that Yahoo! is
convinced they are doing me a favor by giving me information for no other
reason than my mouse is on top of a link in the Navigation Pane.

I have no confidence that you even understand what the feature is that I
want to turn off. I'm absolutely certain that you are completely clueless
about what I'm talking about. I'm sure you're clueless because your solution
is to stop using Yahoo.

I think Tegger gave the answer.

Yahoo home page

Right side....Page Options

Select Switch to Compact View

That fixed for me.

Obviously, the problem is not caused by IE, any more than pop-ups are
"caused" by whatever browser you use. But in order to stop the problem, you
will need to use either an option setting or some sort of add-in which
**IS** specifically designed for use with IE. Therefore, the MS newsgroup
would be the perfect place to post your question.

I under EXACTLY what you want to turn off. But I do NOT know what it's
called. If I needed to fix the problem, I would post a question in the
appropriate MS newsgroup, where people are much less likely to be guessing.

http://groups.google.com/group/micro...l/topics?pli=1


But you'd rather hang around here and bitch.

That removes the Navigation Pane. I don't want to do that. I only want to
stop the fly-over from opening the content that is on the Navigation Pane. I
want to click the Navigation Pane to invoke the content, I do not want it
invoked because the mouse happens to fly over.

You forgot to thank me for pointing out the most obvious source for finding
the answer you crave.

http://groups.google.com/group/micro...l/topics?pli=1


It's said that the real purpose of education is to teach you how to find
knowledge, so you don't have to go through life being spoon fed. You
obviously fell through the cracks.

I figured it out.

Yahoo calls the feature "See it before you click it" so you have a preview
of what you would get if you were to click on the link. The preview goes
away when you move the mouse to another point on the page.

To turn the feature off:

From the yahoo main page, click on the "My Yahoo" link near the upper left
corner of the page.

On the "My Yahoo" page, click on the "More Options" link.

In the box that comes up, click on the "Article Preview" link.

Select article preview off and then click "I'm done."

some of the pop-ups for the yahoo links still come up, but the other stuff
stops, including the ads.

Nice try. I already did that, it didn't work.

So, as of today, has anything worked? What about compact mode, which someone
else suggested?
