Internet Explorer 10 won't go to sites I type in the address bar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My homepage is https://intranetsite/portal. If I click a link in the portal, IE will do NOTHING when I click the back button. It also won't go to an address I type in like https://intranetsite/newsite; I press enter on my keyboard after typing in the address and it does nothing. But, if I go to www.microsoft.com (or whatever public address), then IE starts working as expected and I can go back to the intranet site and click around in https://intranetsite/portal and go to https://intranetsite/newsite. Once I close IE, the issues returns. WTH? This is 100% repeatable for me. Running in no add-on mode doesn't help. I'm on Win7 64bit SP1.

  • Hi,

    In the first instance contact your company's help desk or system administrators when dealing with intranet site issues.

    Ie has security settings to prevent navigation into zones of lower integrity.... basically that means that you can't have an intranet site as your homepage if your network allows you to navigate to public websites.

    Your system administrators will need to alter their GPO settings or IEAK user Profiles to point to a different homepage... (a better solution is to distribute intranet site links as Start menu pinned sites)

  • Your "answer" wasn't even close, why is it marked answered? I am an IT Pro, and the system administrator. You didn't read my question either.

    Let me post a part of it again for you:

    "I type in like https://intranetsite/newsite; I press enter on my keyboard after typing in the address and it does nothing."

    You'll notice the part about how I'm browsing within THE SAME ZONE.

    I'm also the intranet developer......

  • f12>Networking tab, click 'Start Capturing'

    see what nothings are returned from your server responses.

    Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, Intranet Icon,'Sites' button....Advanced button.

    or

    Start>Run>gpedit.msc

    Regards.

  • Capture sees nothing but stuff from the intranet, no outside links. Clicking a link in the portal, and it looks to be nearly exactly the same. There's nothing in the StyleSheet.css pointing to anything outside the intranet (not even something that is http).

    RSoP shows nothing but prevent first run wizard and the homepage set (to the intranet).

    However, adding the site (which is https) to the trusted Local intranet sites, fixes the issue. Even though Automatically detect trusted sites is checked and the web server is on the same LAN as me. Never-the-less, I'm still browsing in the same zone. Plus, this wasn't an issue until I upgraded to IE10. Also.. if IE was preventing me from browsing to sites of lower integrity, wouldn't it tell me some way rather than just ignoring me pressing the back button?

  • I am having very similar issue, after last bulk of winows updates.

    Our home page is intranet site (wss 3.0), and I can't navigate to any other intranet website apart f rom other wss3.0 pages, no error no warning, nothing, IE just won't do anything. It works fine however if I enter any external address into the address bar.

    I can also navigate to any site from blank tab or from any other intranet site, problem is only occurring when I try to navigate from our wss3.0 site to another internal site.
