I have the latest version of Ubuntu installed one week back. I installed Wine and used PlayOnLinux to install IE7.

It is successfully installed. It connects to Bing, Google and does the searches, but when I directly enter urls like and so on it gives message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

Has any one seen this error and resolved this?
