Certain security settings in IE (including IE8) maycause the browser to hang/restart when certain sections of VZW website are accessed. This is not a VZW website issue and can occur with other websites, especially those that offer mixed content within iframes and such. Resetting the security settings of your browser to default settings may fix the issue.

I agree with mdram4x4 - IE8 or even 9 is a better browser, and I believe the Verizon site is optimized for IE8 - though I think FF or Chrome beats IE hands down. Just my 2 cents....

If you are going to use IE, upgrade to the latest version.

My company only supports IE 7, you will find that most companies will not upgrade just to upgrade. Though this was working just a few days ago. I am not going to rule out that it might just be a bug in my browser or a reboot is in order. Just not able to reboot anytime I want while at work.

 

I do not even use IE on my computers, FF is the way to go.

microsoft doesnt even support ie7 anymore, your company is seriously behind the times and should update for security reasons alone, it is free

 

but if you wnat another browser on your work pc and cant install anything

look into firefox portable or chrome portable

no install needed
