Can anyone help me to stop IE from doing this? Any favorites that it thinks I don't want to look at, because I haven't recently clicked them, it hides, or greys out. I went to tools, internet options, clicked the advanced tab, and UNchecked the box for "Close unused folders in history and favorites." But it still closes them, files and folders alike. For some strange reason, after I haven't gone to a site for a while, IE doesn't remember how many visits I've made. If I right click on the bookmark and click properties, it lists the "Number of visits" as "unknown," even if I've been to the site dozens of times. Could this be related to why it is hiding the favorites on me constantly? Any help you guys can give me would be much appreciated!
