My only suggestion is to switch to a better browser; opting for Chrome or Firefox instead of Internet Explorer would make internet-browsing a lot less of a hassle.
Internet Explorer is incredibly problematic when opening new tabs, loading links, opening new windows. The overall stability of IE is horrible when compared with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox especially.
The countless add-ons that Google and Mozilla provide make for an unquestionably better internet experience than that of Internet Explorer’s.
Thanks for your comments about access to browsers others than Internet Explorer on library workstations. The Library is not at this moment offering browsers other than IE, but is planning to do so when a safe update mechanism for these browsers can be implemented in a networked environment. Our goal is to provide these browsers in the future.
