    I am running IE 11 on a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 server, which is part of a domain.

    When accessing sites from the internal network, I get a blank page. I noticed that it was due to the fact that these sites are not in the "Local intranet" zone, and when I add them manually it works.

    In Internet Options > Security > Local intranet, when I click on "Sites", I directly have the window with the advanced configuration, where I have to manually define a list of websites. I do not see the window with the "Automatically detect intranet network" checkbox (but I have it on other servers).

    If I manually add the IP and domain with wildcards, I can access my internal sites, but I would have to do that for every user connecting to the server. I'd prefer if it was automatic, as it is on other servers.

    Can you help me please ?

    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?

    We are using Outlook 2016 and Windows 10 (1607) and we are running into a weird problem.

    In internet explorer (11.576.14393.0) if we right-click on an image/e-mail picture. Outlook will open a new email but the attachment will be named: (2) without any extension. (see image) 

    We made some research and the file is actually an HTML file. If open the file with internet explorer, the image will show. If we change the extension  to .jpg the image will open correctly. 

    We are trying to figure out why is the image not attached correctly in Outlook. We tested on several computer that have the same version and they all have this issue.

    We also tested on a windows version 1511. On this version the problem does not occur. If you try to E-mail picture, attachment manager will pop-up and attach the email correctly to outlook. (see image)

    We are trying to figure out what changer on the version (1607) that would cause this issues.

    Our customer utilize O365 sharepoint intranet and Yammer is in use. Yammer is integraded inside first page view, and it does not authorize automatically. Even if user inputs email and password, marks "Remember me", after closing Edge and re-open it again, you still need to re-enter your credentials.

    I have no other place left than using this forum for this issue...

    - I can´t use Feedback app of Windows 10 because of telemetry
    - Edge uservoice is for developers...

    (or should I open a free ticket to Azure support team?)

    Please remember to mark my post as an answer, if I really helped you out, or vote if usefull. Thank you!

  • 02/02/17--10:23: Compatibility View Settings
  • We have a web-based application that uses IE9, with Display intranet sites in Compatibility View checkbox unchecked.  The problem is other web-based applications require that this checkbox be checked.  Is there a way to create an icon that will open this in IE with the checkbox unchecked, but still allow for it to remain checked in the other application?

    We are experiencing this error with a page we are trying to open from Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 32 bits that is not occurring on IE 11 on Windows 10 64 bits.

    This is happening in all machines that we tried. It worked in our development environment and in the Bank environment on 64 bit Win10, and it fails in both environments in 32 bits Win10.

    Also, we tried in physical and virtualized machines and the same happened.

    The versions of IE11 (as shown below) are:

    IE11 on 64Bit Win 10: 11.0.10240.16384

    IE11 on 32bit Win 10: 11.306.10586.0

    If we open the URL on IE11 on a Windows 10 64 bit, the pages displays fine:

    On Windows 10 32bits, using the same URL, IE tries to “recover” the page several times, until it displays an error:

    Disabling “recover mode” from IE settings also didn’t help, as IE hungs or shuts but nothing is displayed.

    I’m attaching:

    I want to use Content Advisor in Internet Explorer 11. I have found a few post that say to use Local Group Policy Editor. However "Content Page" folder does not exist. I have checked the following locations:

    Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Internet Explorer>Internet Control Panel>

    User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Internet Control Panel ->

    Internet Control Panel has only two folders "security page" and "advanced page". The "Content Page" folder does not exist.

  • 05/22/14--08:50: IE 11 Glitches
  • I've read through the other glitch questions that have been asked. I have noticed at least two specific things about IE 11 that haven't been discussed or covered......

    One - When I am in my webmail, both Comcast and RoadRunner, when I click the "Check All" box (to select all emails), nothing happens.

    I usually open Firefox at this point, and it allows me to Check All by clicking the box.

    Two - When I login to the BofA commercial card site, I get a message indicating their system may not be compatible with the browser. I login in anyway, and most everything works fine, until at one point I'm accessing one of their internal date choice menus, and nothing happens.

    I usually open Firefox at this point, and it allows me to access that menu.

    Both glitches were fully functioning in IE prior to the upgrade to 11.

    Please advise.

    Thanks, Michelle

    Whether I share a OneDrive link from Home OneDrive or Business OneDrive the users continually receive the following error:

    This page can’t be displayed

    Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in Advanced settings and try connecting to OneDrive . com   again. If this error persists, it is possible that this site uses an unsupported protocol or cipher suite such as RC4 (link for the details), which is not considered secure. Please contact your site administrator.

    And we have followed all the steps given by MS online advice and nothing resolves the issue?  Can any one help?

    Home laptop = Windows 10, 64bit, 8 gig Ram, Explorer 11

    Work laptop = Windows 7, 64bit, 8 gig Ram, Explorer 11

    Thank you in advance!

    I am running my applet application on JBoss which extract JRE version using deployJava.js

    It works fine when I run it with localhost but as soon as I map it with some other domain name it fails. but when I add my domain name in trusted sites or minimize the security from Medium-High security to medium security level it starts working fine.

    This was not the case till IE 10 but it starts giving problem in IE11 only.

    Is there any way to automatically add my domain name to trusted sites. Please help.

    Hello all.

    I'm having an issue with the Enterprise Mode Site List not working if the URL is not a FQDN. 

    Does the list support local names (http://<host> versus <a href="http://.<domain>.com">http://<host>.<domain>.com)?

    I know to leave the protocol off in the list.

    Thank you in advance for any insight into this.

    Hello all!

    I've been struggling with this a bit.  We are pushing IE 11 and would like to set the option under Internet options -> General -> Tabs, called "Open Links from other programs in" to "A new window" using Group Policy.

    There is a group policy setting under User Configuration -> Admin Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer, called "Prevent configuration of how windows open".  This looks like the right setting, but I set that, and I can verify through the RSOP console that it applied, but the setting in IE does not change.

    Can you help me with this?  I'm really stumped.

    If you know how to make the change using the registry I'm also open to pushing that out VIA logon script.  Please let me know that solution too if you know it.

    Thank you!
