I've never seen IE 9 behave this way - but, maybe the following link might help.

Inland, it's with IE10 that I do not get that dotted rectangle or border around a link.

Yes, I'm running 10 as well - but never recalled IE 9 behaving that way.

I also don't remember IE 9 having that feature. Only thing I remember, and it still occurs, is the color change from blue to purple when a link from a Google search was visited. Dashed lines around a visited link I've never seen.

Same here as Inland and Homer... a color change, but no "box" around a link and I'm still running IE9 on my Windows 7.

Drac, please go to Galore and click on any game.

Come back to Galore from the site of that game and tell me if, on your computer as it did on mine, you see a "box" around the game you just click on.

If you do not see that "box", then I Wonder why I had one.

And by the way, why are you all talking about colors?

OK. Let me boot up into my Windows 7 and I'll get back to you.

Chief, what's the actual website - I see a number of listings for "galore" in my search.

EDIT: Oops... I see you mean the Games Galore page here at Gameboomers.

Drack, it's our Free Games Galore. Click the link on top of this page.

When in there, click on any game you want.

Yes, it finally clicked in my brain. And, guess what, you are correct. There is a "box" around the name of the game when I come back. This must be something specific to how the link is set up here at Gameboomers. What we were talking about with the colors are links on the internet in general. For instance if I do a Google search for Galore, all the listings are blue. Once I click on a link, it turns sort of reddish purple color to indicate I've already clicked on that link.

I don't know why the links in the Free Games Galore page behave differently. I get the box in both IE 9 and in Firefox. I'm going to boot back up into Windows 8 now.

Drac, if you do the same in the Walkthrough section or in the Game Publishers & Developers section, you will get the same result.

That is why I'm asking if I can get this same effect with IE10 and how to install it if of course it is possible?

Now I'm in Windows 8 and IE 10. As you say, I do not get the box in either the Free Games Galore page or the Walkthrough page. However, I do get the change in color if I click on a link in a list of search results.

I still get the box in my Firefox on Windows 8.

Since IE 10 behaves like it's supposed to with the change in color in other links, I have no idea why the "box" doesn't show up in the links at Gameboomers.

If that feature is helpful to you, I'd suggest using Firefox for the time being. Maybe Inland or Jenny will have a clue about why this is.

Drac, thanks for the help.

I'll see what I can do about Firefox.

It's not something specific to IE. I see the same thing in Firefox. For example the 3rd entry in this screenshot of a Google search has the "box" around it after I select that entry and then use the "back" button to return to the Google page.

Yep, that's what I get at Galore.

I just tried to install Firefox and even come back to IE9. But I can't download them.

Is IE10 blocking them?

We certainly can finish this discussion tomorrow.

Getting late here.

EDIT: sorry, I got Firefox to install.
