So when I got home last night, I said "OK, they finally have a real 64-bit version so let's have fun". Bad decision!
At least on my AMD machine running Windows Server 2003 x64 edition, this puppy is an absolute "NO GO". Just trying to set Toolbar settings and common properties, the windows would freeze up and refuse to close, and I'd have to kill the sucker out of Task Manager. It didn't take me more than about 20 minutes of wasted time to realize I had made a big mistake, and it was "bye - bye, IE 7".
I'm not even going to take the time to put in bug reports on something this bad - I got work to do.
You know, I understand this is BETA software. But at a minimum, there is a certain presumption of basic functionality before you even release it to the public. I guess I'll just wait.
Somebody tell me they are running the 64-bit IE 7.0 on their AMD machine on Windows Server 2003 x64 and its fine, and that I am just an unlucky nerd who got a bad configuration.
N.B. 5/15/2006: After a week to calm down, and a few Registry tweaks, I reinstalled IE 7.0 Beta 2 64 bit and I'm happy to report that she is fine.
On eggheadcafe.com we have a searchbox on the upper right with a button to "Search Related". The code for it is pretty simple:
<input type=text onkeydown="searchRelated();" id=searchRelatedText
if(event!==null && event.keyCode!=13 )
Doesn't make much sense to me. Firefox is really a nice browser, but it's a bitch and a half to get it to do some of the simplest things with plain old script.
N.B. I finally did figure out a way to do it:
<input type=text onkeydown="searchRelated(event);"
name=searchRelatedText size="12" maxlength="50"><BR/>
<img src="http://blah/submit.jpg" border="0"></a>
if (!e) var e = window.event;
if (e.keyCode == 13)
