 +====== FirstSearch now supports Internet Explorer 7 ======
 +
 +On 12 February 2008, OCLC announced:
 +----
 +
 +
 +FirstSearch now supports IE6 and IE7.  OCLC has completed testing and
 +all problems discovered have been resolved.
 +
 +
 +However when using IE7, you will need to modify your pop-up settings. ​ You can update the pop-up blocker so that wanted sites are listed as trusted sites. For FirstSearch that would be the FirstSearch website and also RefWorks, if RefWorks is used for export.
 +
 +
 +To allow pop-ups from FirstSearch or from RefWorks (if you are using
 +RefWorks for exporting records) the following changes are needed:
 + 
 +  * In IE, go to: //Tools / Popup Blocker / Popup Blocker Settings//
 +  * Then in the area labeled "​Allowed Sites",​ enter "''​*.oclc.org''"​
 +  * If RefWorks is being used, add "''​*.refworks.com''"​ also
 +  * Make sure the \\ "​Require server verification (https: <​BLOCKED::​https:/​ />) for all sites in this zone" \\ is unchecked, otherwise you will get a warning \\ "Sites added to this zone must use the https:/ /<​BLOCKED::​https:/​ /> prefix"​
 +    * If you get that message, uncheck the required server verification and enter "''​*.oclc.org''"​ again.
 +  * Next click on //close// and //OK// to exit the menu and close the browser
 +
 +Now when you open your browser you will find export to RefWorks and other features work.
 +
 +
 +
 +You may also found it useful to set your security option lower. To do
 +this:
 +  * make sure all other active applications are shut down, such as Word or Outlook
 +  * go to //Tools / Internet Options / Security / Internet// and reset the custom setting to //Low// or //Medium Low//​. ​ The default level is //Medium//
 +  * Then exit out of the menu and close the browser
 +  * When you start it up again, the new security level will be set
 +
 +
 +
 +If you have any more questions please contact your network service
 +provider or OCLC Customer Support Department (1-800-848-5800 or
 +[[support@oclc.org]]).
