IE9-IE11 Encoding Authentication Failure (IE8 works) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I don't really understand what is going on, but we have a website in use at our company that many users need to use. They need to ability to right-click the page in Internet Explorer, go down to encoding, and then change the encoding to a different language (I think Japanese to be exact).

    It works fine in IE 8. However, when installing IE9, or 10 and 11, when you change the encoding, the page says: Authentication Failed.

    First, I'm not sure why authentication would fail, because why would changing the language need to authenticate? And what would it authenticate to? It's very bizarre. 

    Can anyone shed some light? It would be much appreciated.

  • Thank you for the reply Rob. Unfortunately the websites are internal sites to the company. I'll look at the W3C Internationalization site. At a first glance, I don't see much about authentication issues. Encoding must use some Microsoft encryption, or RSA keys. But there isn't really anything about it online.
