  • Hi,

     

    Twitter feed may have compatibility issue with IE. Please try to use both 32bit version and 64bit version for test.

     

    IE 64bit is located in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer,  IE 32bit path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe.

     

    Furthermore, you can try to restore IE9 advanced settings, or reset IE settings. Also delete IE temporary files, cookies for test.

  • This problem is a result of Microsoft changing IE9 security settings so it will only accept mimetypes of 'application/javascript', the twitter api uses 'application/JSON'...this is essentially a problem caused by microsoft. I assume they made the changes to plug security holes in IE9, no other browser has this problem. Microsoft should have sought to fix their security issues without destroying legitimate applications, every other browser maker has been able to do so.
