IE11 not working after latest Windows Updates when viewing Project Online sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since the latest Windows Updates rolled out a few weeks ago we cannot get Internet Explorer 11 to work with our Project Online sites at 365.  We tried putting it into compatibility mode but then it runs painfully slow.  Is Microsoft aware of this problem?  Our workaround is to use Chrome --- which is really ironic, right?  To access 365 Project Online sites we can't use Microsoft's own browser!  We have to use Google's --- you have to laugh or else you'd cry.

  • We tried putting it into compatibility mode but then it runs painfully slow.

    Sounds like the site is doing browser User-Agent sniffing.  Compatibility mode forces IE7 Quirks mode emulation.  So, you may need a more modern emulation (e.g. via the Developer Tools, Emulation tab, F12, Ctrl-8).  But the real fix would be to get the site to stop doing User-Agent sniffing and support all modern browsers.

    A usability problem with a Developer Tools override is that it has to be done each time and the DT window has to be left open for the duration of the session.  You can report compatibility issues here:

    Then one way or another you may eventually get better usability on that site with IE11.

  • Microsoft support for share point/project online/365 told me this is an internet explorer issue. I wish the left hand would talk to the right hand at Microsoft. They are just killing themselves with this kind of behavior.
