    my specs:
    Dell Opti 760 (core 2 duo, 4gb ram, Geforce 9300 GE)
    Win 7 Ultimate x64 RTM, joined to domain

    Problem: We have two people in IT testing Win7, and we both love it. However, one of the problems we are both having is IE8's browser buttons (back, forward, stop, refresh) do not function when clicked. they depress correctly, but do nothing. I have to either use my keyboard's back/forward/refresh/stop, or manually hit Esc, F5, or hit the down arrow to show the tab's history, and select the page I want. Alt+left/right work fine as well.

    We have managed to find a temporary (as in about five minutes) fix by clearing the cache, but this shouldn't be happening, in any case.

    I've noticed this bug too and as you stated the only way to fix it is to either clear the cache or close all tabs and start again...

    Hopefully MS will get round to fixing this bug soon..
