    new windows blank in IE6 (6.0)

    I'm running IE6 under Win2K Pro with SP 3 installed. The following problem developed today for no reason that U can ascertain.: IE has no trouble following links in the same window, but if I right-click and select "Open in a New Window", the new window comes up blank. I searched thru this list, found #109678, "New Window Not Displaying (IE 5.5/Win 98)", and tried the suggestions I found there, with no success. For the nonce, I'm making Mozilla my default browser with Opera as a backup, but I'd like to fix this if I can since we do a good deal of development here that's specific to IE (using SharePoint, etc.). Any suggestions will be most welcome. Thanks.

    Does this thread sound like the same underlying issue? Do Leif's links help?

    Jeff,
    Thanks very much. The first link did it (re-applying SP1). In retrospect, it even makes sense; I had farkled SP1 by installing a company-approved (customized) IE6 version and then forgetting to re-apply the service pack. And thanks, also, for your quick reply.
    John.
