  • Hi,

    to debug a webpage or intranet webpage for blocked content issues (xss, tracking protection, ActiveX filtering) and security issues first go

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


    Advanced tab of Internet Options>check "Always record developer console messages". Save changes.

    Open IE at your website, Select the File>Properties menu to find out which IE Security zone your host is mapped to. 'local'/'localhost' maps to the Internet zone by default. Intranet sites (domain controlled), map to the Internet zone. Other external website hosts map to the internet zone.

    Press f12.

    >the Console tab, now lists any blocked content, security and markup errors.

    >the Network tab, can be started to see the response headers.

    >the Emulation tab, will tell you which IE version emulation is being used and how it was established. Depending on your dev/test/production environment setups, outcomes may be different.

    you should have enough information now to debug your page/site.

    Its not a good idea to link intranet sites with untrusted internet mapped sites.

    Server versions of windows run IE11 in an enhanced security setting. Include your windows and IE versions. is a good place to ask about website development questions using IE. If possible include links to your site with your questions.
