YES!!! My eBay will not navigate any more using IE9 on Windows Vista--worked fine a week ago. Then eBay announced "doing maintenance" on 1/19 & 1/20. My pages are all locked up and won't update--stay outdated, cant bid, etc. In essence, I cannot navigate my eBay whatsoever. 5 calls to Tech Support who keep blaming my browser (IE9) and want me to download Google Chrome which I dont want to do! My browser works fine except now for eBay?? So I figure it's THEIR technical problem, but they say not?! Could it be that ongoing invasive "Browser Wars" (wiki that topic!) is overtaking IE (Microsoft) in a forced takeover attempt via eBay?? Dunno. Am waiting. Don't want to download Google Chrome!!

I just upgraded to IE 9 on Vista 32 bit and found this thread after experiencing similar issues. I have had some improvement by adding ebay.com to the list of compatibility view pages available through the "Compatibility View Settings" choice on the "Tools" menu. Good luck!

I HAD Soooooooooooooo MANY CRASHES I also UPGRADED to IE9 and GUESS WHAT, would only Allow me to see my ads, ship, float thru pages etc. BUT COULD NOT REVISE, EDIT, List NEW. GAVE UP, walked away, left the COMPUTER. Woke up next morning and reverted back to IE8. Oh, I still am crashing but at least I can Revise, Edit and List NEW. It used to take me an average time of 15 min's for a Brand new ad, if I was listing as Similar average was 5 min's. NOW am Lucky if I can do ONE FREAKING AD in less than 45 min's, more than half the time I END up LOSING ALL THE WORK and Uploaded variation Pictures, etc. A lot of times I have to cheat by listing the ad as is, then go back in, revise some more, save, go back in, revise some more, save, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. BEYONG ANNOYING, SO FUSTRATING, still considering, HOW DO I GET off this COMPUTER STUFF, retire??? or what???? I can no longer get angry, my mind has given up and that is the way it's been for at least 2-3 months. As far as eBay taking concern, bottom line, clean your cache, delete your browsing history. I feel on their end they are as frustrated as us sellers. Half the time now they have no answer. The Servers are so inundated with new programming that. frankly, it feels, LIKE THEY SIMPLY DON'T CARE. As long as they make the buyer happy with all this new Amazon type polices, that's it. Some care I suppose, but their product design people are OUT TO LUNCH, they are causing all this craziness

I found a fix to my issue. I installed Google Chrome and went to e-bay and it said that Silverlight had failed. I turned off the silverlight addin for IE and it fixed the issue.
I was having a crash when I went to the login page, it would instantly crash me. Hope this helps!

Thanks a million addisa, I was having the exact same problem as you. Google crome worked fine with ebay but IExplorer was crashing every time at login to my ebay account. It all started after microsoft send a bunch of updates to my win7 platform pc. I have been trouble shooting for a few hours. Did a search, found this thread & your post, uninstalled silverlight & its working great now. Must be a botched patch. For anyone else having this problem:.... Go to your startbar & click., then click on control panel. Then click: Uninstall a program. Scroll down, highlight microsoft silverlight or just silverlight, Now click uninstall. After doing that restart IExplorer & it should work fine. Many thanks to the help from the users on this thread. E.H

This works great, everybody!! Just uninstall Microsoft Silverlight!! Now, though -- for those of us that have automatic updates to Windows products -- how do we prevent pesky Microsoft from reinstalling Silverlight every time it detects that it's not there? I would like to keep the automatic updates. Is there a way to just block this one program from installing? Thanks so much!

if your ebay and internet explorer are crashing or keep closing out, this is what to do.
go to tools in explorer (or cogs icon)
reset internet explorer setings (at bottom right) (reset)
all should be fixed now
restart browser and enjoy!

After months of my Internet Explorer 11 crashing and absolute frustration, there is finally a solution! Disabling Microsoft Silverlight actually works!! Thank you very much, addisa!!!

I found out that Microsoft silverlight is the bandit for crashing my eBay, I uninstalled the silverlight and then my problem was solved.
Hope it can help others with the same problem.
