Internet Explorer 11 and Windows 10 issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have recently upgraded some desktops from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on our domain. .

    We are experiencing issues with certain websites when you go back a webpage on the site you get "this page can't be displayed" with IE11 and Windows 10 that we do not get with IE11 on Windows 7.

    Also, certain websites that prompt "would you like to store your password" actually do not store the password, even though autocomplete is set in the browser.

    For that matter, the problems exist with Microsoft Edge also. With Firefox,the sites work fine.

    I have verified by putting users in Active Directory Containers with no policies applied that I am not setting a Group Policy that is causing a problem.

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi Mike,

    The fist step in troubleshooting web browser issues is to test in noAddons mode (from a run prompt iexplore.exe -extoff [url to open].

    Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, check "Always record developer console messages"

    open IE11 or Edge at a blank page (about:blank) and display the developer tool>Console tab.... return to the browser without closing the dev tool and navigate to your website(s)...

    Observe the error messages and warnings in the dev tool console.... blocked content from Tracking Protection or ActiveX filtering is listed.

    On the Emulation tab of dev tools you can view the applied Emulation mode (documentMode) and how it was determined.

    On the Debug tab, you can search the web page code for javascript keywords that may be the cause of rendering code branching eg.

    The file>properties menu shows which IE security zone your site(s) are mapped to. Ensure that your company's default IE security policies are current (click "Reset all zones to default" on the Internet Options Security tab).
