Arrow Unanswered: IE9 + WKN?! )':

Our computer, over the last few weeks is going absolutely stupid!!
I think it's been ever since we mysteriously ended up with IE9! I. Hate. IE9. Anyway.
Ok, since we have had IE9, funny things keep happening. Like, the page closes.. for no reason. When I log into WW, It will have a pop-up saying something like "Internet Explorer has stopped Working:
-Close Programme and search for issues
-Close Programme"

And Webkinz, isn't the same..

Sure it has some Positives like:
-Webkinz AP is way faster
-Gem Hunt is faster
-Star Hunt is faster

But I just don't like it!

Is it all to do with IE9, or is someone messing with our computer?!

Another question, doesn't WKN take much energy? Because I was on it for a while today, doing my PaN x4, 12 Treasure Hunts, ad's and floaties (I never got to do them all.) Later, my mum was watching something on eBay, and everything slowed down as soon as she went on (I had not been on during the 25 minutes prior to that time)
And she was really ticked, now she says it takes too much energy AND we are not allowed on WKN ever again! Otherwise... no computer... ever again! ...

Spoiler: show
IE9= Internet Explorer 9

Hi there, I'm sorry to hear that! I think the best thing for you to do is to use Google chrome which is really fast and rarely has problems. Also, it uses quite little energy. I hope you can use WKN again!

Good luck!

Default Re: IE9 + WKN?! )':

I have the same problem with IE and Webkinz.

If I use IE with webkinz I can only log in one way:
Go to webkinz front page, at the bottom click customer services tab and on that page toward the top left click log in, then log in from that page and the crashing of IE stops. Not sure why but it worked for me.

As for WKN taking much energy, I am not sure, sorry. Some days for me it runs faster than others.

Good luck, I hope it all works out for you and you can still continue enjoying WKN

What does your mom mean that it takes too much energy? Does she think that you are using too much electricity when the computer is on, because that's the only thing I can think that uses energy. And lots of people leave their computers on all the time and it's not good for the computer to be turning it off and on all the time. She may mean something else and iif yoiu had been doing lots of things on WKN it might be a good idea to clear your cache (but probably not cookies) after you are done.

fishypuffy is rcommending chrome, but that is glitchy if you want to load your dock in WW. Ganz recommends Mozilla Firefox for WW and that's what I use all the time and I don't have any problems with it. I always use this link to go directly to thw WW login screen Webkinz World - Come In and Play

I hope your mom can explain what she means by too much energy and you can let us know so that we might be able to help you better. And ask your mom if it's ok to install Mozilla Firefox for you to use as your browser to WW. I think it's much better than IE9.

Energy.
I can't really explain it. Im looking for the right word.
Bites? Does WKN take much energy/bites?
Does thhat make sense?
Am I on the same line, here?

I know what you mean about Google Chrome
When we had no screen, I plugged my laptop into one of the plugs, and then connected it to the internet, amd it ended with Google Chrome, and it worked alright

I use IE9, and WKN is a bit glitchy, but it still works .

Have you tried using another browser? Because it could be just your computer.
If all else fails, clearing your cache and cookies could help the situation.

And WKN takes up no more energy then other websites, sometimes browsing for a long period of time will cause your computer to load slow.

Hope I could help!!

When you are using the programs they take up memory, but that is freed up when you quit. The only thing that might cause problems is the things left in your cache and if you clear that then the "energy" you used is all available for something else.

I just had the exact same thing happen to me when I used IE and I'm sorry I didn't try it before I answered you. I don't know what's causing it but I almost always use Firefox and that works for me. You are absolutely right that something in IE has changed recently. You need to ask your mom to install Mozilla Firefox for you and you should not have that problem anymore.

I was able to get it to work by going to the customer service tab at the bottom and then logging in from there.

ie9 is said to have issues with flashplayer.
If other things are having problems with ie9, you can back out to an earlier version.
It is closing alot when we go in from the main login, but we have to do that to get the movie right now.
Once we've done all our accounts' movie visit, I then use the customer service method (above) for those using ie. (I usually have several accounts open at once, and use 2 or 3 different browsers).
The url with that one starts mci2.webkinz ...

We now have 5 browsers (ie, ff, Chrome, Safari & Opera), each is better at different sites.
What works for someone else may not work best for your computer setup (unfortunately).
So sometimes you need to test things out.

Your mom might be talking about bandwidth & mb from your provider - perhaps you have an
internet/cable package. If you have a monthly limit, lots of refreshing/paging can be a problem.
If you have lots of windows open, you can also be having alot of data traveling to your computer.
This can also be true with chats or sites that constantly update with ads.
Perhaps you can ask her to explain the issue better & try to work out a compromise.

Or perhaps there is a library you can visit and do some computer time there.

Good luck.

I just updated Adobe Flash Player for IE and now it is working, so I suggest you try that. Go to Adobe - Install Adobe Flash Player and follow the directions.
