Internet Explorer consumes approx 1GB of memory to open HTML file of 45MB RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a HTML page contains normal paragraph text content of 45 MB size. When i try to open it in IE 11, it is consuming around 1GB  of memory and unable to open the file, crashes sometimes. Is the behavior is expected or is there any settings  in IE to open large HTML file.

  • Hi,

    to debug your websites use the f12 developer tool. On the emulation tab you will find out which emulation mode (aka documentMode) and how it was established. eg. IE7 - Display intranet sites in compatibility view.

    From the File>Properties menu in IE you can find out which IE security zone a domain maps to... eg. Intranet zone.

    IE has security restrictions on how content from domains and hosts is displayed. eg. Prevent navigation into a zone of lower integrity.

    If you are dynamically populating a web page with paragraph text, viz using scripted windows. ( then outcomes can be affected by your IE security zone settings, the origin of the scripted content, your IE popup blocker settings or other third party blocker settings. (eg. google toolbar popup blocker).

    If you are a website developer, post coding questions to stackoverflow....  Include with your questions a link to a test harness or jsfiddle that reproduces the issue. If you are developing for an intranet application mention as such.

    To debug your web pages for security, markup and xss issues, first go Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, check "Always record developer console messages".... Save changes.

    Without a link to your website or a test harness people can't debug YOUR CODE for you.
