Question ID: 782829
Some people using IE7 see an address bar with the URL at the top of
popup windows - for example when playing a Java game at Pogo.Com.  For
other people using IE7, the URL text overwrites what would normally be
in the window title.  On all 8 of my computers it has the former, but
many dozens of my customers experience the latter.  I can't make my
programs work properly unless I can get IE7 to show the URL in the
title bar.  How do I get the version of IE7 that shows the URL in the
title bar of Java popups at Pogo.Com?
I have two screenshots illustrating the difference I will
be happy to email to you.  Here are two other places on the net where
people are trying to get essentially the same question answered:;_ylt=AgQ1MEz7pdDOTZgb2kWp.anzy6IX?qid=20061114200040AAAMT0T

Please only answer the question if you can tell me how or where to get
a version of IE7 that shows the URL in the title bar of Java popups,
as opposed to having an edit box containing the URL at the top of the
Java popup.

The question is How Do I Get Such A Version Of IE7?

Hello rigel222,

Have you tried using the <title> your title here </title> tags in your
html pages?

Hello rigel222,

Thank you for your question.

Try using the "<title> your title here </title>" tags in your
HTML pages.  This should solve the problem.

The problem is not with your version of IE7, although IE7 does have
its problems. I advise  you use Mozilla Firefox instead-- it is a much
more reliable and safe browser and a more enjoyable browsing

Mozilla Firefox

If there is not <TITLE> tag, then it shows the URL by default. Take
out the <TITLE> tag.
