I have been having some unusual (for me) links appearing on web pages in IE 8 of late.
What is happening is that random words in post, in PM's and in any sort of text on a page have become links to other pages.
As an example, in a private message today, the word "male" is a link. It can be just about any noun, and as I try hard to not click the links, they sometimes get clicked all the same... It must be a setting in IE 8, but I can't find it. Anyone know how I might remove these links so I'll stop stumbling across them and having formatting screw ups that makes it more difficult to read?
On a side note, although I suspect that this is a screen reader issue, I keep ending up in the tabs area (restore tab, the tabs, search bar and address field, etc). It's all but impossible to get back out of the tabs and back to the website, but if someone out there knows a way that doesn't involve a mouse, I would be really grateful. The "Alt+D" and F6 key strokes don't work, nor does a simple escape or attempts to tab back out of it.
Oh... and while I seem to be on the topic, anyone know a good pop-up blocker that works with IE 8 and Windows XP? I'm suddenly getting random pop-ups for all sort sof sites.
