Internet Explorer 8 Title Bar Displays Full URL Causing CRM Issues

One of my users pointed out that IE8 now shows the full URL in the title bar, which should be no big deal, right?

Except that in Microsoft CRM you get about a million windows poping up all over the place, and with the URL showing in the title bar, you can't see what is what by looking at your taskbar.

Here is the fix for this.

1.Click Start, type inetcpl.cpl in the Start Search box and press Enter.
2. Switch to Security tab and click choose the trusted sites. Click the custom level button (the CRM site needs to be listed as a trusted site for this to work, and it should be to resolve other issues)
3. Scroll down to find "Allow script-initiated windows without size or position constraints" under Miscellaneous.
4. Select Enabled and click OK.

You should now have useable title bars.

Thank you, sir!
I didn't think of that setting and I've been pondering on this for the past week or so.

Cheers!
