IE blocks local content RRS feed

  • Question

  • For no apparent reason (I'm open to suggestions, why) the IE development team decided that opening local content in IE (11 and others) is DANGEROUS and therefor blocked.

    In order to allow your favourite web browser (IE)  to access content on localhost follow these simple and harmless steps .


    And IE is behaving normal again.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for sharing your solutions and experience here. It will be very beneficial for other community members

    who have similar questions.

     In addition, did you try to add http:// before localhost:port for IE? Unlike other browsers, IE needs to know what protocol is being used.

    Also please add to the list of trusted websites.
