Accesskey attributes not working in IE 9 HTML

Q: Accesskey attributes not working in IE 9 HTML

Hello there,

Consider the following html tag:

HTML Code:
<input type="button" id="saveButton" value="Save" accesskey="s">
It works great on most computer, but on one in particular the accesskey is ignored. The computer runs Windows 7, freshly installed and using IE 9.
I already tried:Reset of Internet Explorer settings
Removal of all plugins

Any insight/help will be appreciated

Preferred Solution: Accesskey attributes not working in IE 9 HTML

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,My Avira keeps finding daily everytime I scan it.....HTML/Exploit.Mhtml HTML and HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen HTML script viruses. This has been going on a long time. The only thing I have noticed is high cpu 90-100% in task manager all the time, which does'nt seem to impact the speed of the computer. Occasionally, I pick up things in Malwarebytes and Spybot if I neglect to run a scan on Avira for a few days. I've also scanned Adaware and Avast but nothing shows up on them.

I'm currently designing a table based website in Dreamweaver, but am having a problem importing a drop down menu in the form of html. It gives me the error "The selected file is not the correct format. Please select a file which was exported from Fireworks".

The problem with this is that all the export options have been set correctly, and is being exported as Dreamweaver HTML, and obviously being exported from Fireworks - so what's the problem? Does anyone have an answer to my problem?

Hi all,
My problem started a few weeks ago! I caught a Virus and Dr. Web got rid of it as well as some trojan downloaders that Malwarebytes killed.
The virus ruined my Avast as well as Google Chrome - so I installed Avira and Zone Alarm Firewall as well as ZA Forcefield browser. Avira continues to tell me I have a virus and quarantines it. I contacted Avira and they say it looks like a Zone Alarm problem - I contacted ZA - and am still waiting - I also uploaded these to Avira to be checked for a false positive and have not heard back from them either.
I was wondering - if I still have a problem or if this is a false positive?
Here is what Avira's log says on the last catch:

A:HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen HTML script virus

A common attack against the web infrastructure can be the infection of harmless web pages. Some malware changes every HTML file stored on the disc and adds a link (very often an IFrame) to a site hosting malicious code. Other attacks can aim for the web servers and try to insert forwarding to the pages hosted there. The owner of these pages is advised to take them offline. Fix the hole (either on his own PC or on the server), check the pages for infections, clean them and go online again. Infected Web Pages often contain additional Iframe, Object or Script Tags. The Script Tags often contain encrypted Code.Special detection HTML/Infected.WebPage.GenSince Avira is making the detection and you submitted samples, I suggest you wait on a reply from them or follow up by contacting them again with a reminder.See this Avira link for a discussion of a similar report.

Good morning all, (at least here in EST) Im not sure if this is the proper forum, so ill see if it dies here before I try to post somewhere else.
Every Month, i need to send in a report on what i have done here at work (read: justify my existence). It generally takes me about an hour to do. What i would like to do is to create a HTML form, formatted the way they want it, with text boxes/pulldown menus, and fill in my information, and have the completed form either A)saved as an html form without the boxes; IE:the information gets added into the actual html OR B) All the information gets pushed into a word.doc.
Ultimately, i would like to have it save with something like this "Report-{date or month}.html (or doc).
Soooo, this being said, any of you code wizards out there know how to do this? Thanks alot for any imput you can give.

When saving an html document to any location e.g.; the
desktop the correct icon for an HTML document
does not appear (white page with blue 'e') ,all i get
is a default icon (white background with an Windows flag).

Right clicking and selecting 'properties' to change the icon is
not available as Change Button is greyed out.

Double clicking the file does open IE6 correctly.
Interestingly shortcuts to HTML sites do have the correct

Reinstalling IE6 has not fixed the fault.

A:missing icon for HTML documents; htm and html files

Directions for changing the icon for HTML files.

Open any folder.
Hit View->Folder options.
Choose the 'File Types' tab.
Find 'HTML Document' and click on it.
Click on 'edit'.
Click on 'change icon'.Find a good icon to use and close all the windows.
Shortcuts are a different type of file according to the computer, so it handles them differently.

I am using Windows XP SP3.

I am trying to add an "edit" action to the .html file type. I have .html associated with Firefox. I go to Tools>Folder Options>File Types> and .html isn't even listed! (Nor is .htm) So I click "New" and add the .html file type. Then I click "Advanced" and fill in the action info and hit "OK". Then I hit "Close".

It doesn't work, and then when I go back into "File Types", html is not listed anymore. Basically, Windows is ignoring my attempts to add the .html file type.

I created the .xxx file type and added actions to open with Firefox and Word. It worked perfectly.

So what is it with the .html file type that Windows won't create it or list it?

In the Floppy Disk Drive, R.click folder to go to properties-General, there are three options in the 'Attributes' Section at the bottom of the window. Those options are 'Read Only', 'Archive' and 'Hidden Archive'. I lost a file using the Hidden Archive and cannot find it anywhere. Can some one tell me if I can get back the lost file, and what the Archive option is for.



Go to Windows Explorer. From the menu, hit View-Options (or folder options if Win98). Select the View tab and make sure you have "show all files" selected, and no "hide..." options selected. Hit OK, the View-Refresh. You should see your file, dimmed. Select it and change its attribute.

I have four drives in my PC. One is a 3 year old Seagate 1TB ST31000528AS SATA II.

About a year ago, I was using an ASrock motherboard. I started having the drive vanish from Windows Explorer, and there were a lot of unexpected drive disconnect errors in Event Viewer. A new latching-type cable from Newegg solved my problem.

This afternoon, I happened to click the Health tab in Defraggler, and the pic below made my jaw drop.
Attribute 188 Command Timeout shouldn't be in the 34 billion range so far as I know.
Attribute 190 Airflow Temperature seems to be hotter than a thousand suns.
Attribute 199 CRC Error Count and Attribute 7 Read Error Rate are both known to me.. these were going up fast before I replaced my cable.

I tested my drive with SeaTools for Windows and it passed. Using CHKDSK comes up clean. Using a tool called DriveInfo shows the Command Timeout at 'green' and 100% okay. Windows Event Viewer hasn't shown any drive read or write errors since I got this new Gigabyte mobo and installed Win 7 fresh in June 2013.

I can't afford any data loss.. I've got over 700GB of movies, TV shows, and Macrium backup images on this thing and nowhere else to store it. My computer does run pretty much 24/7 for [email protected], but this particular drive is used for storage. Any input here? I'd appreciate it.

I downloaded a flash video from YouTube using 2 different programs, but both the same file.

One of the files has File Attribute A the other File Attribute AI

Can someone explain to me what these mean?


A:File Attributes

A = Archived, easy enough, I = Indexed, but I'm not sure what that means. Not Content-Indexed?

From TechGuy.org:

Marking a file or folder with this attribute indicates to Windows that it should be indexed. This means that its content is analysed and stored in an Index file, a lookup that Windows uses for File searches. Maintaining an index helps to ensure that searches are much faster, and indexing a file's content allows searches to realize that the file matches even if its title doesn't contain the search terms.

Best Wishes,

My Win XP changes attribute of a folder to system attribute when I
change its icon. For example, if I create New Folder right click mouse
and choose properties, both Read Only and Hidden are UNCHECKED. But if I
change the icon of that folder the Hidden box of properties is GREYED
OUT(unavailable) It is not hidden. It becomes system folder.

I can go to MS Dos and remove system attribute from that folder but then
it restores default icon.
It has never happened before. I used to customize icons all the time.

Can someone please help? I tried to look for solution everywhere. Thank

OK, since I've been preoccupied lately with getting a decent backup program working, I've been concerned about file attributes.

Trivia question 1: What does the attribute "N" denote?

Defrag has some interesting command line switches, everyone who uses it should be aware of the '-w' switch which causes defrag to pay attention to fragments larger than 64KB. The default for Windows Ultimate x64, in the scheduled defrag has the command line: 'defrag -c -i -g'. '-c' is easy.

Question 2: What do the '-i' and '-g' switches do?

Now, in case you were thinking there was anything but rep at stake, there isn't. Nor do I know the answers. (Cute, huh?) But I would appreciate knowing the answers.

A:A little trivia for you (Attributes and Defrag)

Hi Hogtowner,

Answers for your trivia.

Question 1

The "N" attribute is set by the Search/Indexing component in Vista.

N = Non indexed file or folder.

You cannot add/delete/change this attribute in the normal way, ie: it cannot be changed using the attrib command.

To change this attribute, right click the folder/file and select 'Properties'. Click on the 'General' tab and then click 'Advanced...'. This opens the 'Advanced Attributes' dialogue box. For folders the option you require is under 'Archive and Index attributes' and is 'Index this folder for faster searching' whereas for files the option required is under 'File attributes' and is 'Index this file for faster searching'. These are checkboxes, and for either case, the procedure is the same. To remove the "N" attribute, click to place a tick in the relevant checkbox. To replace the "N" attribute, click to remove the tick from the relevant checkbox. In both cases, click 'OK' twice to apply changes.

Question 2

The following switches are undocumented.

-i This switch makes Defrag run in the background and operate only if the system is idle - as it does when run as a scheduled task.

-b This switch optimizes boot files and applications while leaving the rest of the drive undisturbed.

I have not been able, as yet, to find anything referring to a "-g" switch.

Hopefully, this should answer your questions.

I have put a program folder into c:\program files and when I look at its attributes, it Read only.
I uncheck this box and want to make this folder and all its files and sub-folders not read only, ie I want to be able to write into one of the sub-folders.
I have followed all the prompts and the change appears to work, ie there are no error messages or warnings but when I check back through Properties, all folders etc are still shown as Read only.
I am doing this as administrator in vista home premium 32.
Could someone help out please?

A:Resetting attributes of folders

Program Files is a restricted folder, and all sub folders will inherit permissions from Program Files.

Optimally, you should not use any folder in PF to store / manipulate data that any non user will need to edit. You should use either the public folders and / or the users profile folders.

However, for that *1* folder you should be able to take ownership of the folder and then remove the read only attribute.

I had a digicam's memory card connected to the PC to transfer some pictures. I noticed right Away that it was infected with some worms and viruses. so I scanned it with my Eset smart security and removed the Nude SSG sex scandal with wormblaster. then after that the folders appeared which is actually hidden (it is still hidden but I changed my view settings). So I tried to unhide the folders. But then the "hidden" checkbox is disabled so I can't do anything about it anymore. I thought I was infected by that time I opened the memcard without scanning first but ESS cannot detect anything at all. also I had this problem in another computer but can't seem to find a virus.

A:unchangeable folder attributes

There is a program called "unlocker" that should enable you to get rid of the offending folders. Available free at http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker. I have used it to get rid of the annoying and useless "xerox" folder under progam files.

I am still experiencing the dreaded Windows 7 "let us take control of your system" scenarios and I need some help if possible.

As usual, if I create a folder and attempt to save in it, I am denied access, though this is not such an issue, as I use Take Ownership to handle this.

My problem is all of the subfolder in the My Documents folder have Read Only as the attribute and I have tried everything I know to change it.

As a last resort I have used a command prompt and used the attrib command to do the job, but with no success trying various different combinations. I tried just running command normally and then tried it as an administrator, but again no success.

This was the final command I tried attrib -r +a "H:\My Documents\*.*" /S /D but still no success.

Does anyone know a way that will work to remove the read only attributes from all of my folders?
