    Hi,

    I started using Internet Explorer 8 (Vista Home 64-bit) some time ago.

    So far, so good, but now I have a problem; I cannot download my statements from the IB Account Management site.

    I open my statement as usual, click "Save page as..", click "OK" and everything seems fine.

    But when I look at the statement saved on my disk, it is just 1kb large and simply empty, contains only some HTML-tags.

    I tried different formats, options, no succcess: IE will only save empty statements.

    Does anyone have any idea?

    Many Thanks
     
  2. Dont you have to choose "full web page" in the type?
     
  3. W(hy)TF would you even consider running Microsoft shit before SP1? And yes, I have an idea...

    Thank you both, both your tips have helped me. I have used FireFox before and remembered what format I had used - this one does not work in IE.

    I had not tried all options - don't know what it is called in the English version of IE, but something like "html only" does the job.

    Have a nice weekend
