Morning Alan,

I'm behind a firewall, a proxy and the "thought police" here. When downloading, everything hangs while the proxy gets hold of whatever it was I requested, and the thought police scans it for nasties. In IE version 6 (don't ask, it's government work I do!) I see "starting ..." then a long delay - the bigger the download the bigger the delay - then "done".

I think the client IE session isn't getting updated on progress from the proxy which is doing the download?

I may be wrong of course, I'm not the worlds best networking/proxy/download guru!
