comment How to find who's dropping the connection?
@DavidPostill I'm assuming these commands basically show which node along the line is causing the problem? But sometimes nodes don't respond to the trace, even though they're working correctly, right? How can you tell whether a node is simply not providing info for the trace vs. not working entirely (or dropping the connection/packet)?

@JourneymanGeek Interesting, had never heard of pathping. I've used and tried tracert, however, the destination isn't reachable -- there are 10+ entries of "No response" up until the end.

But if the browser is still set as the system default browser, won't the OS still know where to find it?

comment How to diagnose unconnectable port from client side?
It's possible -- this is on a friend's machine. Is there any way to tell who/what is dropping/blocking the connection?

Wait, so are you confirming that compatibility view settings can be tweaked/changed in IE11 then?

comment Why does CTRL-click not open some links in a new tab?
Aha! Thanks. So I guess this means that the browser's status-bar display of the hovered-over URL displays the link "post-Javascript", but ctrl-clicking the link essentially executes as "pre-Javascript" (so to speak) -- does that sound right?

comment Why does CTRL-click not open some links in a new tab?
@imtheman Great point, however, it doesn't appear to be the case, at least in the examples I've seen. I know this because I always hover my mouse over the link beforehand to verify that it's showing a URL in the status bar. An example is here: nationaljournal.com/white-house/… In the lefthand column/bar, the links to other stories appear to be their own URLS, verified by even jumping to their location in the source, however, ctrl-clicking doesn't work, instead acting as if ctrl isn't being held.

Is there a way to undo this besides using "undo" (CTRL-Z)?
