Problem with Street view on Google Maps

  john bunyan 17:29 PM 02 Jan 13

W7 64 bit, IE9 all up to date. Google maps street view worked fine until recently. Now if I drag and drop the little yellow man he disappears with no street view. He is greyed out in his home. Any suggestions? This seemed to aired some time ago but not recently. I have DNT+ and a couple of other anti trackers.

Seems to work in Chrome....

Hmmm - a Google product working better in Chrome than it does in IE - now there's a surprise. It's God's way of telling you to switch, jb... (Sorry, I haven't a clue about your question, I'm afraid... :-( )

No problem in IE9. Have you tried without the anti-trackers?

OK in FF as well with AB+ and DNT

I unticked "Active X Filtering" in IE9 Tools, Safety and that did the trick. Not sure why this was enabled?

This problem came back spasmodically. In the end I found that my old blue-tooth mouse was the problem - simple really! It worked ok except on this issue and a wired mouse gave a good result. I have now bought a new wireless keyboard and mouse as the old bluetooth? system that came with my old Evesham desktop seems obsolete.

Green tick seems to work at last - only if you post a reply.
