Default One thing that can be annoying in 64-bit IE 7

Well, as many already know, there is no flash plugin that one can nab for a 64-bit browser. On the upside, it can be good as flash ads get blocked (browser can't run flash) without the ad block plugin (which is available for Mozilla and Fire Fox, but not IE).

Well, the annoying bit, is that it wants to by default popup this stupid thing about installing it. OK, there is an option to block all software from Macromedia, which though I used, goes a bit too far. How about a simple "don't remind me again" without blocking the whole site. As in, I don't want to be bothered, because I already know that the plugin will not support a 64-bit browser. I can always use IE 32-bit to view it, but umm, well both browsers share much the same settings, browser history, and whatever. Not wanting to be bothered in IE 64-bit bit, does not mean one wants to block the plugin where it works in IE 32-bit

I noticed this as well. But I believe it was IE7 on Vista x64. Installing Opera solved it.

Using a 32-bit browser it doesn't come up, as 32-bit IE 7 it isn't an issue, nor is it an issue in Mozilla. I sorta loaded this site in IE 7 to see if that same double post issue (per my thread in the feedback forum) shows up there as well
