JavaScript blocked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Being unable to log into Microsoft Skype I found it's a problem with JavaScript in Microsoft Internet Explorer.

    What possibilities are there that can block JavaScript?

    I've switched off security programs, downgraded to IE10, flushed all data and reset everything. I've manually switched JavaScript off, restarted and then manually switched it on just to make sure.

    I've re-registered both JS modules successfully. I've have asked in different places without any solutions being offered.

    There is no way I can enable JavaScript in Internet Explorer, while it's fine in other browsers.

    Any ideas?

  • Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, click  "Reset all zones to default".

    Trusted sites icon,'Sites' button... remove any domains that you have placed in the Trusted sites list.

    Use the File>Properties menu in IE to find out which IE Security zone a domain has been mapped to.

    As you have already tried, your Security program can also disable active scripting (for javascript and vbscript) (not Oracle Java JRT).

  • Hi Pleasechoose,

    What is your main purpose? Are you trying to login skype for web?
    If it is not available to login skype for web, we could install skype application then login.

    Based on your situation, please reset IE option and delete personal setting to have a try.
    If the issue persists, we could run "iexplore.exe –extoff” command to open IE without add-ons to have a test, this issue could be caused by some specific add-ons.

    If you suspect that it is caused by JavaScript blocked in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
