On my Mango, MS seems to have replaced "Forward" in IE with "Recent". The "Recent" option in the menu keeps a history of all the pages you've visited in chronological order. So if you start at page A, browse to page B, then back to A, you'll see B just under A in recent and can use that to go "forward".
File upload functions in browsers assume you have full access to the file system. With WP you do not have unfettered access to the file system on the phone. Therefore, until IE9 allows you to choose from the locations on the phone where you do have access, this isn't possible. Perhaps in IE10? Those details aren't released yet IIRC.
Silverlight and Silverlight for Windows Phone are different, note that the former is meant to be ran on PC while the latter is meant to be ran on a Windows Phone. Note that the IE browser on the Windows Phone does not have an embedded Silverlight plugin. Only your phone itself can run Silverlight applications.
Well I Have found a software that can download videos for u which MediaDownloader Here is the link for that http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/media-downloader/d5484913-8bfd-477a-bc96-b3aa2e9dcee1
Now with Windows Phone 7.10.8XXXX u can even transfer files via Bluetooth.
You cannot download media files using the browser. The browser will only allow you to stream them and will not allow you to save them to your media library.
You can download Office files, text, images and Zip archives (as long as the archive contains supported types).

In portrait mode, the system tray (including the clock) will show while either the SIP/keyboard is visible or the menu is expanded. I'm not aware of any way to show the system tray all the time.
It's not possible to show the clock at all in landscape mode.
The browser is the same in all browsers regardless. You can get the results you want simply by installing the developer tools and using the emulator. No hardware required. The thing you want to watch out for is 7.0 (wp original), 7.1 sdk (wp75 mango) versus wp8.0.
From this post on MSDN Blogs:
The reading view button will appear in the address bar for pages that have “article-like” content. If you don’t see it, it means that the page doesn’t work well in reading view.
That's rather vague and unhelpful. Luckily, our friends at Stack Overflow have managed to narrow it down a bit:
You have to have a non-empty &...
Windows Phone appears to have trouble with non-fully qualified domain names (FQDN) such as http://intranet or http://server.
When setting up any kind of server for local or internal use, it's best to use a FQDN. For example...
Pop-ups are getting deprecated and when someone chooses to implement it in their site they are simply shooting themselves in their own foot for not being Browser and Device Independent; really, W3 discourages it and provides alternatives. Thus, don't expect these on a mobile browser.
It's the developer that has to adjust; not you, the user that has to ...
Yes, I have found a way to be able to do what you need to do.
Note: I have tried this on Windows Phone 7 and it should work in Windows Phone 8 too.
Start by removing all internet connectivity from your phone i.e. put your phone in airplane mode (no data plan / wifi ).
Now, go to Internet Explorer and type in the URL you want to pin. Because you have no ...
This is a Facebook web server misconfiguration. I had it to, like every other WP. it comes from the incompatibility of the web browser detection. Instead of getting the Site for "Mobile IE" most servers don't understand this Info when it gets from phone to the server.. I found no workaround except using the "Desktop Mode" which only "says": Hey there I'm not ...
Windows Phone 8.1 comes with Internet Explorer 11 Update (which has some additional changes over the desktop version).
For completeness, Windows 10 Mobile comes with Edge, whilst Windows Phone 8.0 came with Internet Explorer 10
The file upload capabilities have been extended with IE11 on WP 8.1, now allowing you to upload photos, videos, documents, music, ringtones and downloaded files.
Tabs that you've used stay in memory as long as Internet Explorer stays in memory (i.e. it shows in the list when pressing, and holding the back button). If the Internet Explorer falls off the list of running applications, the open tabs are preserved, but are refreshed the next time you use them - this is the same behaviour as the desktop version (and, for ...
Within Windows Phone 8.0, there is no control over the display size for text within Internet Explorer 10.
Windows Phone 8.1 updates the browser to Internet Explorer 11, which is now available as the Nokia Cyan update for your specific phone. These updates should make some improvements in how some websites render, but GDR1 is set to improve website ...
The following solution worked for me:
Clear the web history in Internet Explorer
Open Internet Explorer
Go to Settings
Tap "delete history"
Confirm deletion (passwords don't have to be deleted)
Remove/unpin all black tiles from start screen
Pin web pages again to start screen
I would go with Richards answer.
Just press the three dots at the right bottom corner and the clock will appear.
A quick tip that I use myself is to just start dragging the three dots, as soon as you start moving them the clock will appear. That way you can quickly show the clock without hiding the webpage itself :)
It works quite well for me on most non-mobile pages. When you first open a page it will sometimes be slightly zoomed out, but if you double-tap the screen it will do its best to show the main content with no horizontal scroll and at a readable size.
