Internet Explorer refuses to navigate RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since the mid-august Windows update, I have a really strange problem with IE: most of time, it refuses to navigate from a site to another, and on some sites (eg. bing.com) it refuses to navigate inside the site itself.

    Funny fact: if I opened an add-on panel which I wrote and does not interfare with navigation, then IE accepts to navigate, as long as the target is in the same page.

    If I try to open a page in another tab or another window, it never works.

    In all cases, it marks the hyperlink as navigated.

    Finally, if I copy the shortcut and enter it in the address bar, it works perfectly.

    I have already tried to uninstall/reinstall IE, use another account on the same machine, it does not change anything.

    Configuration=Windows 8.1, 100% up to date

    Thanks !

    What happens if you allow XSS?  (Disable the filter.  In Options, Security tab, Miscellaneous section.  Near bottom of list.)  In fact, you might already be getting some clues in the Developer Tools, Console tab.  F12, Ctrl-2.
