    HELLO IE TEAM... My laptop with Windows 7 has an IE folder in the file under programs. It does not have a .exe file that I can install IE with. SO I tried to uninstall and delete this folder... but my laptop will not do so and gives a message saying I do not have permission. When I try to download and then install the IE 11 for Windows 7, an error message comes up and says- can not install because a later version of IE is already installed. But there is no where the IE is showing on my latop, not in the programs and no exe file to install it with in the IE folder... HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS PROBLEM PLEASE?

    The issue is that if I go to a site that authenticates with SSO I am able to get in without needing to re-enter credentials.  But if I get a link in Outlook and I have signed into SSO but have closed IE, then IE doesn't authenticate me with my already entered credentials and asks me to do it again.  If IE is open and the link will work.

    If I sign into SSO with Chrome, Firefox or Edge and close the browser then click the link it will open successfully in those browsers without requesting a new sign in.  On IE11 this fails.  It worked on build 1709.

    Does anyone know what changed?  Is this something that we can work around?  We still have two products that require IE11 and they are about 1-2 years away from having a non-IE compatible version so I need to extend IE's life a little more.

    I am experiencing a issue with the IE11 browser specifically when trying to select from the address book/people picker within SharePoint 2013 and it is not bringing up the people pick box to select a user from. When I click on the address book it does nothing at all. The people picker is not working in IE, but working on my Chrome browser just fine so that made me believe it could possibly be a browser issue. I am trying to find a fix as majority of the users at my company use IE v11, so I was researching what could possibly be causing this for this browser only and being it is a sporadic occurrence. 

    I have tried setting the site within the 'Compatibility View Settings', and also modified the custom level security zone and cleared my cache. And nothing is seem to be helping me resolve this issue.

    Any help would be appreciated in advance!

    Good Afternoon,

    I'm having a hard time trying to find an answer for this.  If I enable a plug in Internet Explorer in the registry I can use 2 values in the Flags.

    0x00000000 = Enabled

    0x00000001 = Disabled

    what does this value mean in the flags value?

    0x00000400 (1024)

    I recently upgraded 2 of my workstations to Windows 10 to test before upgrading the rest of my workstation. Both workstations were running windows 7 pro. after upgrading the OS I am having issues accessing sites through IE11 and Edge, however I can get to the site via Chrome or Firefox without any issues. When I try to navigate to the sites not working in IE/Edge I get the TLS error message below. I have checked my TLS settings and have verified that all TLS options are enable. Why would I be able to get to these sites via other browsers but not via IE/Edge, and how to I resolve the issue?


    Can’t connect securely to this page

    This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings. If this keeps happening, try contacting the website’s owner.

  • 09/21/18--09:00: Keeping up with the times
  • Microsoft forces IE or Edge to be our default browser, but it recommends Google Chrome when using their products.  Why are they unable to keep their products up-to-date with new technologies so we can continue to use their products seamlessly?

    Our company website and many online software products are designed using HTML.  They are not functionally compatible with Edge or IE and must also use Google Chrome.  Perhaps they should get out of the browser business completely if they can't keep up with the times.

    Trying to be short but giving as much detail as possible.

    So we have to update to Windows 10.0.17134 as a corporation. When installing it on a few machines they all quickly experienced the same issue. IE 11 is not persisting cookies on the local intranet anymore. So nothing like saving what language a user is using, other user preferences. It does this in test, production and development environments. It is completely repeatable simply upgrade to Windows 10.0.17134, after the reboot, cookies are no longer persisted.

    Ok, so simple cookie. Written from site.

    Response.Cookies["AutoLogin"].Value = "true";
    Response.Cookies["AutoLogin"].Expires = DateTime.Now.AddDays(365);

    This site has been upgraded several time though out history originally a .net 1.1 site. But the above code has worked now for 18 years. Newer cookies I create the full cookie object and write it down in one response. Either way, this works in all windows versions prior to the one in the title and still works on all those.

    Now when I go to the site after upgrading the cookie is not there. No matter, if it is not there it will create the cookies again. I can see the cookies in the trace.axd file on the server and fiddler on the client after they have been created. They stay as long as the user has the browser open. The minute I close the browser and then reopen it. All cookies are gone. The are not in fiddler, they do not show up in the trace.axd on the server Cookies are completely blank.

    Now this is an intranet site. So the settings should be affected by the intranet zone. So I have messed with a ton of browser settings to see what I can do. If I do turn on protected mode in the local intranet zone. Cookies are persisted and saved just like before. However, I have other 3rd party internal sites that need to have this disabled so I can not leave it enabled. All prior versions of windows, IE etc protected mode is disabled. So something is off here. Something changed. 

    Now to muddy the waters a little more I am not sure why Microsoft does this. So Before the windows Update IE was version 11.611.16299.0 After the windows update, IE is back to 11.112.17134.0 so it seems upgrading windows actually downgraded IE.

    However, the Updated version is newer. When digging into what the difference is between version and updated version I did find that Updated version is security fixes only, where Version is functionality. No where can I find how to update the actual function version of IE to get back to the 11.611 of the prior version of windows. Windows Updates says I am up to date.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. I am not sure if it is the Version of IE that is the issue, if it is Cookie issue, like I said works in prior versions of windows, also works in Chrome and Netscape fine

    When using the same website on a freshly imaged Windows 10 machine, when I go to "Save picture as" from right-clicking a picture in IE11 and Edge, it only allows me to save the picture as a PNG and BMP, but the picture is really a JPG.  Both Firefox and Chrome allow me to save it as a JPG.

    Any idea why IE and Edge will not allow me to save the image in the format it actually is like every other browser I try?

    I am trying to create a logon script for Windows 8.1 using vaultcmd for a few users that will populate web credentials.

    The command I'm using is formatted like this:

    vaultcmd /addcreds:"Web Credentials"

    /credtype:"Windows Web Password Credential"

    / /authenticator:password

    /resource:""/savedBy:"Internet Explorer"

    It creates the credentials in the Credential Manager, but they do not populate when I surf to the website.

    When I save the credentials using IE11, a file for the credentials is created in the same location, and the credentials look identical to ones created by vaultcmd in the Credential Manager.

    However, when I create the credentials with IE, they populate on the site and everything works as intended.

    What might I be doing wrong?

    I work as part of a IT team within a organization that has 200+ Windows 8.1 devices, recently we have been experiencing a problem when downloading files using Internet Explorer 11.

    You click the file to download (word document,PDF etc) and you get the yellow bar at the bottom asking you to open save etc but when you select any of the options nothing happens and this is becoming increasingly more common.

    I cant believe we are the only people to have this issue but i have searched and cant find any answers.

    I hope somebody can help us.
