IE pop-up : not responding - How to disable ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are hosting an application on IE with around 1000 users logging in on daily basis. We recently shifted from Firefox to IE. From the very first day, we have started getting 'Server(domain name) not responding' pop-up, which comes with a recover web-page option. As there are multiple users, it's difficult to train them not to use 'recover web page' and wait until system becomes ready again , because of which application gets re-loaded for most of them and results in session already existing message. is there a way to disable these pop-ups at IE level ?

  • Hi,

    you need a programmer to debug your intranet website....

    you should be using enterprise site mode lists to manage the IE Emulation mode that is being used by legacy intranet sites.

    Probably, your intranet site is using legacy Flash (macromedia, adobe) or other plugins/ActiveX controls that are blocked by IE in IE 11 emulation. Use the f12 dev tool>Emulation tab, to discover which IE emulation is being used and how it was established. eg. IE8 - Enterprise site mode lists.

    I expect that your environment will show IE11 (Edge) default. You will need to use Enterprise site mode lists or meta x-ua headers to force IE11 to use a lower emulation mode... probably IE10 emulation mode will be sufficient. For testing purposes you can use the Emulation tab of the dev tool to change the Emulation mode 'on the fly' to determine which emulation mode for a legacy intranet application is appropriate.


    If the site is owned by your company and you have the developer resources, it should be modernised to modern standards... the benefits of this strategy is that it enables code and resource reuse and removes dependencies to legacy technology that may not be supported in the near future.
