Computer nerd halp plz! Gmail/MSIE FAIL

So I've been having a problem that's quite annoying...

When I go into my indiana.edu email (powered by Gmail, so it's the same interface) I've noticed that when I type anything, there's a serious lag in the typing...like letters randomly don't show up, and I have to backtrack and type more slowly to make sure that it doesn't look like I was wasted when I typed it. This is especially annoying when I have to email my students, which is pretty often. I've noticed that it only happens in IE7, and I've taken to switching to Firefox when I need to write a really long email. However, that gets annoying, because all my bookmarks are on IE (not the kind you can import into Firefox--I use the hotlinks tab provided by my popup blocker which is only on MSIE). I've also noticed this lag with facebook chat somewhat, so I think it's something that happens on java-intensive pages.

Is there a way to fix this so I don't look like I type like a drunken sailor, or am I stuck unless I switch browsers?

btw, I have windows vistaFAIL and a brand new HP laptop.

thanks!
