    IE 8

    any item: i click "add to cart"
    shoptemp shows me the message box above.
    --if i click cancel -- nothing happens. i can't load the item and skip the extra stuff, which is what i assume would happen.
    --if i click OK -- i get a new browser instance where i am forced to pick "NO" for a bunch of upgrades i don't want. (MSD, upgrade services, etc)

    this is really annoying. i don't like when people, stores, shops, etc, force product on me. it is a real turn off to buyers.

    is there some setting where i can disable this for good? each time i want to place an order I have to go through this, also it requires that active-x is turned on. i perfer to keep active-x off for obvious reasons.

    I don't get any message of the sort using Firefox 3.6 or IE8, with Active X disabled.

    Why use IE8 anyway?

    this only happens when you click "add to cart" from the category page...
    that means you don't even check the product description before buying it!?
    who does that anyway?

    when a product has options like this, the shopping cart software wont allow adding it directly to the cart...
    it just takes you one extra click [​IMG]

    option 2 (upgrade ak2i to fw1.4) - 3rd click
