One website not being saved in history RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am on Win10, using IE11 instead of Edge. One website I frequent is a forum, with many subtopics. None of these subtopics I visited ever get saved in history; and so, of course, the links never change color. This also happens when I visit the site with Chrome. I have tried all the "solutions" for general history problems, with no success. This is unsurprising since the problem is limited to this one site. I have asked the administrator to pass along my issue to the websmaster, as I am convinced it has something to do with the site, but I keep getting told to "check cookies" (which I have of course). Any ideas?

  • Oh, sorry, guess I'm in the wrong forum. I am an IT professional, but retired; my question addresses my personal situation at home. What forum should I be in? TIA

  • Thanks Rob. I tried keying in the address, but I got an error saying that no links would be accepted until my account was verified. Say what? Anyway, here's the link as  broken text:

  • This one worked for History but before that it kicked me into the Script Debugger?  WTH?

    One difference I noticed is that there may be a trust issue on the forum page ("some content is blocked to help protect your privacy").  At least there is enough History kept that AutoComplete for Address bar can find the original URL again for me.

    Apparently it is ActiveX Filtering which is at least some of the problem.  I tried using InPrivate Browsing with that allowed but got the same result, so that would be inconclusive.  Edge likes it but of course Edge doesn't need ActiveX Filtering.

    FWIW
