IE8 & Firefox 3.0 jiggle & bounce RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason both IE8 and Firefox 3.0 will start to jiggle and bounce when opened. Both will switch from full screen (no title or task bars) to maximize several times a second. I have to close and open both multiple times before they stop doing the jitterbug. I'm running an ATI Radeon 4670 with the latest Win7 drivers on Win7 RTM.

  • Jiggle and bounce? Sounds like they're having fun! :D

    But srsly, no idea... What site are you trying to open? Javascript can change window size...

  • It's really weird…

     

    When the issue first occurred? Did it occur after installing certain software or update? If the issue did not occur before, use System Restore to restore the system to the date before the issue occurred first.

     

    If the issue persists, try Clean Boot to see if certain third party software is causing this issue. If the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

     

    In addition, you can also remove Firefox 3.0 and see if the issue occurs if we only use Internet Explorer (IE). If the issue still exists, try Resetting Internet Explorer settings.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • They may be having fun but I'm not. It doesn't matter which web site. Google, zoomtown, aol, yahoo, ars technica, infoworld, the register, they all do the shimmy shammy shimmy.

  • Okay, this is like taking your into the garage for that funny sound.  Neither have been funky since the 10th.
