It is not a server issue...

Problem is "zones" in the privacy settings, some of the cookies from the banner ads are in a restricted or blocked zone.

When I am on certain parts of my corporate web, same thing happens. I'm stuck with IE6 at work (a technology company, go figure..) and can't modify my privacy settings so I'm in the same boat so to speak. Choices (firefox,etc) are great, if you have them.

Work around: CTRL + F5 and hope your refresh/reload has a different banner ad that is not blocked. If another blocked/restricted ad is shown, repeat CTRL + F5....

I am/was having the same trouble after downloading the latest version of IE. I took the plunge, and downloaded Firefox 8. Everything seems fine, except they asked me if I wanted all my favorites and things like that transfered over to FF...I clicked yes, and the download went smooth. Now, (not being FF wise) I cant find my favorites, or, it didnt transfer them. Any ideas ? Thanks.

Switched over to an Apple last week, which has Safari. Huge difference between that and IE. So I just DL'd Safari on my work laptop, again, huge difference over IE, plus no more of those dam certificate error bar codes anymore. US1 is a happy camper!

I have the same issues at work with IE, but none at all with Firefox at home.
