I see that you called into Support last night. I would like to make sure that your issue was resolved.

No, the representative was unable to solve this problem, so I reinstalled Internet Explorer.  After I click on "Publish" the page will show in I.E.  Without I.E. the published page does not show.

Hello, I would like to investigate the matter further for you. After uninstalling IE which browser were you using? Also, can you please provide me with a few examples of pages and elements within those pages that do show within the editor but not the live site?

I was always using Google Chrome.  The only thing that used I.E. was Homestead when I published a page and checked the box to see the published page.  The only real problem I ran into was if I had uploaded a PDF file.  Then I.E. was not able to show it, so I would then go online with Google to see the file.  Since it was recommended to me to get rid of I.E., I thought Homestead would automatically open just published pages with Google Chrome instead.  It did not.  The page would publish okay, but not show it to me.  I reinstalled I.E. and Homestead uses it again to show the published page.  This happens with all pages, no matter what the content or how much content is on the page.  It just seems that Homestead only wants to show just published pages with I.E. and nothing else.  Website is: www.mid-atlantictrials.com

Hello, I do apologize about your experience. When SiteBuilder Desktop was created in the late 90's Internet Explorer was the default browser as at the time it was a great browser to use. You can still use Internet Explorer for SiteBuilder Desktop but you also have the option to manually open and view your site in other browsers as well. We do also have the online version of SiteBuilder Desktop called SiteBuilder Plus that does allow you to view after publishing using Chrome.
