        For the last few days, myself and anyone else with Internet Explorer or IE9 anyway, had distorted pages. Accolades were missing and our account pages were not lined up. It was so confusing I almost stayed away entirely for the 2 days (and lost 2 profile points :-(   But we're good now!

          Yeah, I forgot to mention, before many people starting asking questions and before we started getting answers, I restored my computer like 3 times! Ha, what a moron.

            Yes, the world is not ending, though IE 9 may come to an end soon enough.

            From what I can see, all IE9 display problems (graphics and alignment) on HubPages are resolved. I had a guess that all the problems came from just one glitch regarding the loading of graphics. Now we get to try out the new interface!

            And the Mayan calendar rolled over to a new epoch, too. smile

              Everything HubPages-related is back to normal on my computer anyway. I have Google Chrome, but personally I prefer my IE, as I have been using it for 15 years or better. Maybe I ought consider switching things over at some point. I am sometimes a little resistant to change, if it's not broke; don't fix it. Okay, in this case it might be breaking :-)

          IE never worked well with HP in the beginning for me so I switched to firefox. It took a while to get use to because before I was very happy with my IE, but I don't have daily issues on HP anymore. Glad y'all are back up and running!

            Yeah, I feel the same way about IE; it's what I started using with my first computer and I'm just comfortable with it, but I probably will find less hassle in switching. I'm holding on as long as I can ;-)
            Thanks

      I have been using IE...tried Google Chrome but didn't like it...but once I updated it everything went back to working correctly with Hub Pages on IE...isn't technology grand.

        Hey buddddddy,
        I just installed Google Chrome a few months ago, but don't care for it either. I guess I'll stick with IE until it crashes? I couldn't agree with ya more! We're like two peas in bird's flock. <- That is how it goes right?

          Girl...we rock...we must have been seperated at birth or something. I know what you mean, Google Chrome sucks arse...what a shame.

          I love your sense of humor...can you teach me to be funnier...you can be like my Yoda.

            Well if that's a picture of you as a kid in the 80's then I'm sure you're my brother because that same picture is hung in my house 20 years ago!
            Yeah, I think we have a symbiotic relationship, I laugh at you, you laugh at me... the rest of the world scratches their head.

    hey there, Cantuhearmescream, if u want my opinion u'll dump both of them n' uze firefox, a. it is open source (nearly open source programs r wiked, eg: open office, foxit,  mozilla thunderbird, linux, etc,), b. it been around 4 year2, it used to be netscape one the very first browser'z but it evolved, c. extremely efficient, d. hundred of cool tips n'trick'z, e. very small about 16mb, once u uze thiz u will never want 2 go bak 2 any of the otherz, especially the yukkie i.e. I didn't think anyone was still uzin it
    so treat yourself, juz type in "firefox downlaod", n' make sure u choose custom n' it will import all ur  favourites and history.
    a well wishing newbie hubber, ;-/   {^_^}
    kind n' warm regardz

      jakkadan,
      Thanks, I appreciate it. I'll certainly check it out. I'm always afraid of doing much straying on my computer because I'm one of those people that says; "What'd I do"? Then spend 2 weeks trying to fix it. :-)
      But it sounds cool, thanks.
      Welcome and good luck

        Firefox is my favorite. I'm using IE temporarily for complicated reasons having to do with old computers and the time I need to set up my new one.

        I tried Chrome and it made a mess of everything. IE will always have trouble - Microsoft actually does it on purpose in the hopes of breaking the standard and getting people back to IE. (Though maybe they'll give up with IE 10 - every fifth version of a MS product seems to be a good one.)

        I only shifted away from FIrefox because there was a temporary mess with Firefox 17 and HubPages. That was a while back, and all good since.

        So, Hello, Firefox, Here I Come!

    i have been fixing computers for a livin 4 bout 18years and played around with for alot longer, so find 'system restore',
    it's under start
    ->acessories
    ->system tools
    ->system restore
    right click on it and choose 'copy'
    -> find a blank part of ur desktop n' choose 'paste',
    -> then double click on it u will be presented with an applet with two radio 'buttons',
    it defaults to "restore my computer to"an earlier time.
    but make sure u choose 'create' and a system restore point will be created. voila u now have a point u can go bak to at any time
    always do this before u let anything in2 ur computer; eg: updates, installin a program, etc.
    if u do choose the top one when u clik on next u will get a calender, the boldd dates are 'points'u can go bak to
    i don't have to hope this helps it juz will, maybe not today but when u need it most, it will there 4 u :-))   be lucky.;-/
