Most of the grey menu tabs at the top of this page don't work like they should! What should I do?

I believe that Internet Explorer v.11 works appropriately
(September 20, 2013 - rpm)

I’m betting that you are using Internet Explorer version 10.  And I wish I knew how to make it work in that version. I had  the problem too, and when I tried to determine how to resolve it all the techies on the internet were suggesting one of two options:
  1. Uninstall Internet Explorer v.10 and fall back on Internet Explorer v.9
  2. Others suggest that Instead of using Internet Explorer you try Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome or Safari
  3. Keep you eye on Internet Explorer v.11. The menu option works in the installation I tested. However I had problems cutting and pasting in forms in this version. There may be a 'fix' to this issue.)
I tried both options. 
  1. When I uninstalled Internet Explorer v.10 it was automatically replaced by Internet Explorer v.9 and the menu options became available.
  2. I also have Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari on my computer.  The menu options are available in those Internet browsers.
Sorry that I have not found a more elegant solution to this problem.



How to find the version number of your Internet browser: If you are reading this your browser should be open. Click on "Help" (at the top of the screen. Then click on "About," usually at the bottom of the drop-down list.

For those who are reluctant to remove programs from their computer (option 1 above) my suggestion would be in install Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer will not conflict with each other when they are installed on one computer.
