The first solution than I tried I use the method beginQuoteFileUnquoteUpload1 it created me a good boundary and good Content-Type but when I receive the file. The file is corrupted :(

var formData = new FormData();
formData.append('file', document.getElementById('file').files[0], document.getElementById('file').files[0].name);

function beginQuoteFileUnquoteUpload1(data)
{
// Define a boundary, I stole this from IE but you can use any string AFAIK
var boundary = "---------------------------7da24f2e50046";
var xhr = null;
if (window.XMLHttpRequest || window.ActiveXObject) {
if (window.ActiveXObject) {
try {
xhr = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
} catch(e) {
xhr = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
}
}else{
xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
}
}else{
alert("Votre navigateur ne supporte pas l'objet XMLHTTPRequest...");
return;
}
var body = '--' + boundary + '\r\n'
+ 'Content-Dis name="file";'
+ 'filename="'+document.getElementById('file').files[0].name+'"\r\n'
+ 'Content-type: application/pdf\r\n\r\n'
+ data + '\r\n'
+ '--'boundary + '--';

var url ="https://gedcreditor.mycloud.by/Myproject/ws/rest/sendemail/";
url+=document.getElementById('file').files[0].name;
url+="/a/a/a";
xhr.open("POST", url, true);
xhr.setRequestHeader(
"Content-type", "multipart/form-data; boundary="+boundary);
xhr.setRequestHeader('Authorization','Bearer ' + JWTtoken);//Our test server does not accept JWt, once we use AXA server, we will test the JWT
xhr.setRequestHeader('ApiKey','lRABmnmS_H1Ej9yaowxqwEsuBbkxkgrzx-C1Jji_HfnJyKywR8NeuSkIJbhutfNg');

xhr.onreadystatechange = function ()
{
if (xhr.readyState == 4 && xhr.status == 200)
alert("File uploaded!");
}
xhr.send(body);
}

beginQuoteFileUnquoteUpload1(formData);

******************************Result**********************************

-----------------------------7da24f2e50046 -----> Ok Content-Dis name="file";filename="servlet.pdf" Content-type: application/pdf

---------------------------7da24f2e50046-- Content-Type multipart/form-data; boundary=---------------------------7da24f2e50046 ----> OK

==================================================================================================================================================

The second Solution does work because the firewall blocked me because I don't have the same boundary below the method and results.

var formData = new FormData();
formData.append('file', document.getElementById('file').files[0], document.getElementById('file').files[0].name);

Preferred Solution: IE11 : Content-Type = false in IE11 it doesn't work

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently bought a new Win 8.1 PC. After a couple of days the icons for IE changed to a magnifying glass and is now called "Search". On opening it a totally empty browser window appears but when I type a URL nothing happens at all.
The IE tile in Metro seems to have disappeared as well.
I have tried turning it off and then on again in Uninstaller to no avail.
I ran sfc_/SCANNOW in a Command window but no problems were reported.
Has anyone experienced this problem?
I would be grateful for any advice on reactivating IE11.

Answer:Help - IE11 doesn't work

Also check programs and features, turn windows features on or off and check the box is ticked for Internet Explorer 11. Click ok.

Hello to all the Forum helpers here. I have a problem with Windows Update trying to install IE11. When I built the comp I had IE8 installed. Apparently Windows Update has tried to install IE11. I don't usually use IE for browsing, since it is usually slower and a clunker, so I didn't give much thought when it "Updated" and didn't know it was trying to update IE from 8 to 11. As I have been searching this issue, apparently, I didn't uncheck the "Automatically Update to newer version of Internet Explorer" in help/about. Apparently it was coming through updates as "Important Updates"? to automatically download & install? I would like to have IE working again as some websites do not work properly without it. Have had serious issues with IE in the distant past when running 98se. I'm new to this forum and haven't used mspaint in years to try and post screenshots. Please be patient with my responses. Thank you.

I'm starting to have a lot of problems with IE11 and O365... time for an update???  The latest one, and the most critical, is that I'm trying to insert or embed an O365 video from the video portal, and it isn't visible in IE11. Works great in Chrome,
but we just went through a long battle to get everyone to use IE11 as their default browser.  Now I feel like we have to tell them to use Chrome AGAIN, which isn't going to go over well. A couple of days ago, I was having problems with the new list interface,
adding text to a rich text field and the ribbon disappeared... again, works great in Chrome. IE11 definitely has bugs !

I have 7 email accounts on our Exchange server for different business and personal roles.  I have always used OWA instead of Outlook to segregate accounts on my desktop.  For quick logins I have been using "Keyboard Express"
Macro program  to insert USER and PASSWORD into OWA.   With some update applied in December 2015, Keyboard Express no long works on most of my Macro hotkeys because the IE hotkeys have taken precedence.  Such as ALT-H and other.
This same think happened to IE11 when I ran the Windows 10 upgrade 2 months ago, so I restored Win7 with a disk image to get rid of Window 10.
Is there a way to assign precedence between a Macro Program and IE11 Hotkeys ?

anyone seen this one?
on booting up 8.1, lenovo z410, the first few attempts to use IE11 from the desktop fail. "cannot open page".
connection troubleshooter produces nothing.

go to APPS > IE and it works fine.

after using chrome and the tile app for awhile, IE11-Desktop will gain coherency and start working.

is there a way to reinstall the desktop side?

this is a clean install with little/nothing loaded on it, about to be deployed for real work so its important.
I've never seen this issue before on 7/8 so kinda lost/bewildered

Answer:IE11 Desktop fails connection. IE11 Tile App succeeds

Maybe can not get that page immediately, try setting blank page for start-up. (about:blank) and than as a start page.

Good Afternoon,

I am running into issues trying to upgrade to IE11. It looks like there are several issues in my CheckSUR Log, but I am not sure how to fix them. I have ran SFC /scannow a couple times and no errors have been identified. I have been having this problem for a couple months now and have just been using Chrome. I have also had several issues with the Aero Effects and Themes as I have to troubleshoot that multiple times a day.
I am receiving error code '3FD' from Windows Update regarding IE11.

Attached is my log.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Answer:IE11 Update/Install Issue - Trying to Upgrade to IE11

hello and welcome skohon now personally I would download IE11 Download Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 7 from Official Microsoft Download Center - it says on my machine I already have it if yours does the there is something quite wrong.

If it is not on your machine then you save the above to downloads and then do what is in this Install or uninstall Internet Explorer - Windows Help

I have done this myself on odd occasions and it saves you having to muck around with updates.

First you might like to run this though in safe mode if necessary
Disk Check and run the /f and /r switches if necessary.

I have tried to access or restore the content advisor in several different ways but it has not worked. I tried using regedit to type in the suggested 'RunDll32.exe msrating.dll,RatingSetupUI' but this did not work, and I found out on a few sites that this option does not work with windows 7 home editions. Then I tried opening the registry editor and going to 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main' to create a DWORD for ShowContentAdvisor. However I could only get as far as the Policies tab - Microsoft, and there was no option for Internet Explorer! Under Microsoft there was MRT, SystemCertificates, and Windows. Any other ways to do this??

I have a number of .mht files created some time ago (approx 2 years) with IE11 (.mht files are a specific IE format for saving a web page as a single file).
Now IE11 won't work with these files. IE just gives the message "Internet Explorer has stopped working".
But if I load the files onto an old XP machine (with IE7), they load absolutely fine.
I'm guessing that some (security) changes have been made to IE11 that have affected its workings.
I've googled for a solution / ideas, but no joy. Anyone here got any thoughts?

After IE11 is being installed by many teachers, they pull up yahoo or google and do a search. After the search results are displayed, we can no longer type in the search box now. Tried activating compatibility mode for the site. Also cannot select some drop
downs on certain sites. HELP! Have over 400 pc's we manage. Any thoughts?

Answer:Cannot type in search boxes on IE11

Hi, 
Firstly, we need to check the following:
1.  Do you mean the issue is only occurred on yahoo and google website?
2.  How about other browsers? Do they also meet the same issue?
Based on your description, I would like to suggest you try the following to check the issue:
1. To get the latest adobe flash player
Download and install the latest flash player on your computer by visiting the link below.
Install Adobe Flash Player
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
2.  Run Internet Explorer Performance Troubleshooter.
The Internet Explorer Performance Troubleshooter is an automated tool which will check for any performance issues which are common with the Internet Explorer on the computer and

provides the details on how to fix them. Follow these steps and run the troubleshooter.
a. Press ?Windows Logo? + ?W? keys from the keyboard.
b. Type ?Troubleshooting? in the search bar and press ?Enter?.
c. In the ?Troubleshooting? window, click on ?View All? on the left pane.
d. Click on ?Internet Explorer Performance?.
e. Click on ?Advanced? and then click on ?Run as Administrator?.
f. Click ?Next? and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the troubleshooting process.
3. Run IE with no add-ons as Rob said. Click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Internet Explorer (with no add-ons). 

4. Reset Internet Explorer settings

Hi,

I'm trying to troubleshoot an issue with Internet Explorer and they way it handles opening file from the Internet. Sometimes it gives a prompt like this:


Which is great, I want to turn this on for all common document types (e.g. PDF, Word Docs, Zips). What I've found is you have to either untick the option 'Always ask before opening this type of file', or delete a registry key in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute
When I check my PC I find I don't have that option and the registry keys aren't present.




Could someone clarify this for me? I'm running IE11 and Windows 7. 

Thanks
Dave

Answer:Always ask before opening this type of file - IE11

Hi,
In Windows 7, there is no the key AttachmentExecute by default. For this reason, Checkbox for "always ask before opening this type of file" is missing in the Download prompt window.
Actually, you can choose to add this key in your Registry by following txt, Copy them to notepad, then renamed as .reg file. After that, import to Registry.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]

I've built a VM in Hyper-V to deploy to five PCs, but when I go to my Office 365 admin page using IE11: I'm unable to see the page content:



As you can see, the page has loaded, but everything below the black header bar is not showing, neither is the tab bar that should run vertically down the left of the page.

I thought this was a Hyper-V problem, but going back to an earlier point in the build shows it's fine.  In fact it's okay up to the point just before running SysPrep. 


My next Checkpoint is after SysPrep and first OOBE boot, taken at the point where the 'Hi there' screen prompts you to confirm regional settings:



At this point, if instead of completing the OOBE set-up, I press Clt+Shift+F3 to enter Audit Mode once more, I'm logged on as the built-in Administrator account and the problem's not there. If, however, I do complete the OOBE set-up and log on as
my user account (admin), the problem's there.  So something's happening between the start of SysPrep and first user logon, but I don't know what it is or how to fix it.

I'm not sure that entering Audit Mode again after running SysPrep undoes any or all of the changes specified in my Answer File (it's a pretty simple one) so I don't know if it proves anything, but I've tried running Sysprep on a basic VM without the '/unattend'
switch to see if it's the same, but SysPrep failed.

Hi there

This post might be a bit "Geeky" so skip if you aren't interested.

I downloaded a FREE Laptop trial version of SAP (a great learning tool for perhaps one of the largest ERP companies out there) to test and learn a bit about the programming language used by SAP (Called ABAP). The software is FREE and the licence can be automatically renewed for 90 day extensions "ad Infinitum" so this is in NO way "Mickey Mouse" software.

Since some independent consultants who have any knowledge at all of this stuff can currently earn anything from 700 - 2,000 EUR a day it seems a good platform to do a bit of Home training on.

The download (ABAP 7.5 Netweaver) can only run on a Linux Host but it installs essentiallly with "1-click"

SAP Development Tools

Now you install the front end (or the GUI --SAPGUI) on a Windows system --no problem there either.

problem is when I use any application that requires launching the web browser - I get Certificate error --not a problem as you can skip that although strange that it regards my local intranet - i.e the Linux system where I've hosted the SAP system as having a potential security problem with the certificate.

OK you can click go to website -- no problem.

I have following add-ons installed for Tracking Protection in IE11. (Please see the image below.)

I have a question that do these multiple add-ons affect the speed and performance of IE in any way or they are here only for the good purpose and nothing bad.

I mean when we use adblock extension for Firefox/Chrome, it shows a impact on the browser's performance. Is it the same here for IE too?

Can I happily have these add-ons (as shown in image) in my IE? Please suggest.
 

Answer:Effect of Add-ons (Tracking Protection type) on speed of IE11.

I haven't experienced any drawbacks of the performance and stability of the browser while using such addons. Indeed I used to face incomplete blocking of ads in certain webpages.

Hi,

I inadvertently deleted some files and folders in my user directory when attempting to clean up some temp files. I think that I restored all the deleted files, but I had to reinstall my smart-ups software and replace all the application icons on the quick launch and in the start menu.

The only issue I have left to resolve at this point is IE11 remembering website passwords. When I login to a website such as the Seven Forums, when I click in the user name box, my user name will appear, but when I click in the password box, the password doesn't appear as it used to. Now I have to manually retype the password each time I login. I do get the pop-up bar at the bottom of the page that asks if I want IE11 to remember the password each time, but for some reason the remembered password isn't there the next time I attempt a login.

Is there a fix for this issue?

Regards

Answer:IE11 doesn't remember passwords

I resolved this issue by completing a repair install of Win 7.

Hi. If I uninstall Internet Explorer 11 through control panel the uninstallation finishes but it doesn't fully remove IE11. It leaves the PC running IE9 but unable to reinstall IE11 because it thinks it is still installed. I can resolve this by using the
Microsoft Fixit site for problem installs and uninstalls, the tool finding IE11 still even though control panel doesn't. What I want to know though is what the fixit tool did to clean up the IE11 uninstallation so I can prepare a script to automate it on a

You need to check your settings in:

I have done that Joe. It makes no difference.

I've also tried to reset IE and get a window which says "Before you can reset Internet Explorer settings, you must first close all other open windows and programs." Which also makes no difference.

In IE11, Yahoo mail's list of folders is present down the left side of the browser window, but the major window for the mail is blank.

In Chrome there is no such problem, all mail is listed.

I've been forced to go back to Windows 8 to get the Internet and WinLiveMail to work consistently.

In Windows 8 they both work seamless using IE10. In 8.1 they are so inconsistent it is impractical to use this version of Windows, even after discussions with Microsoft tech support to sort out the problems with IE11.

Emails won't send, sometimes even after a reboot. WLM frequently can't connect to either Yahoo Mail or my ISP.

IE11 will open some sites some times, and all sites other times. FireFox is the same.

After weeks of experiments and reloads I've finally given up and will use 8 until 8.2 comes out.

Update: In another thread HERE, I explained how I had spoken to MS tech support and they gave me an alternate DNS address to use, but it didn't fix the problem.

Then in another thread, HERE, I discovered a different DNS address from the one I was given by MS.

I put the address in via this pathway:

Workaround: Go to --> Control Panel --> Network and Sharing Center --> Changer adaptor settings --> Right click: Ethernet icon --> Properties --> Networking tab --> Highlight: Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) --> Click: Properties.
Leave "Obtain an IP address" on auto.

Dot: Use the following DNS server address.

Type in the address:

Preferred DNS server: 208.67.222.222Alternative DNS server: 208.67.220.220

The new DNS seems to have fixed the problem and all web sites are opening normally, and very fast.

IE11 on my phone is just so awesome and every site just works perfect 'cept for my most used site FB which stutters when i'm scrolling and hit the suggestion pages and opens the suggestion page accidentally. this happens only on portrait mode. also, photos on portrait mode are not complete and just shows maybe 3/4th of the whole photo but when i switch to landscape the photos are all full and complete

Answer:FB on IE11 stutters and doesn't show full photos on portrait mode

I was doing reasonably well with Windows 10 after doing a clean installation. There have been some problems with third-party software, but that's not entirely unexpected.

However, since the 1511 update, IE11 and Chrome don't work very well. Chrome is slow and won't load some images, and IE11 often won't even load a page.

(To answer what is probably an obvious question, Edge has no trouble loading pages and does so quickly. However, it keeps downloading some kind of adware from various sites without permission, and that's unacceptable.)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:IE11 and Chrome don't work after the 1511 update

Reinstalling those two, specially Chrome can help a lot. Some even report that Chrome wouldn't work at all after that update.

I have been having issues with my windows 7 (64-bit) laptop for a few weeks. It seems the problems began when I downloaded Open Office and accidentally acquired a new toolbar. Removed that, but other problems have cropped up.

Most notable problems: Various control panel functions don't work, such as uninstall programs and turning on and off the firewall. Also, the IE11 browser will open and promptly shuts down. I've tried to download a new version, but I get a message that I already have a newer version installed. I've used Glary Utilities Pro to attempt to uninstall my current version of IE11, but it doesn't appear in the list of programs.

I have run various anti-malware programs: MalwareBytes, Malware Bytes Chameleon, Super Anti-Spyware, Windows Defender, and nothing comes up in the results. Today I ran a scan with ADW Cleaner and it found a couple of items (ie Flash Player Pro).

I'm not sure where to go from here but would appreciate some input. Thanks!
 

Answer:Windows Corrupt? IE11 and Control panel items don't work

1. install some Anti-virus program, or perform scan using eset online scanner or bitdefender free online scanner

after that:

2.Run CMD as administrator and enter:

Code:

sfc /scannow
4.If it finds windows files integrity is compromised.

5.enter the following commands:

Code:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
This command will then download damaged windows files from windows update and fix your windows.

(NOTE:  Links open in a new tab.)
In the TechNet article
here I see reference to a schema v.2 for the EMIE tool. It will apparently spit out the xml using the new version 2 of the schema. But the download link only goes to downloads for Win7/8 (schema v.1), and I cannot find any reference to where I can obtain
the Windows 10 version.
For example,
this article specifically references a Windows 10 version, where
this one references Windows 7 and 8.  Finding the Windows 10 version has proven impossible so far.
We have several sites which need to be opened in IE instead of Edge, and using our old Enterprise Mode site list is not working on our Windows 10 clients.
Current site list example:
<rules version="4">
    <emie>
          <domain exclude="false">www.contoso.com</domain>
    </emie>
</rules>

Etc.
Reading about the
v.2 schema leads me to think that the output from the tool is incorrect.  The documentation suggests that the output for Windows 10 should be:

<site-list version="205">
  <site url="www.contoso.com">
    <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>
    <open-in>IE11</open-in>
  </site>

I have posted this question to the link under Microsoft Community and after 2 or 3 replies from them (with no solution) they recommended that I ask the TechNet community for help.
My problem is that my Laptop running Win7 Home Premium/IE11 (with all of the latest Updates), with 6GB of RAM keeps locking up after I have had IE11 open for more than 5 or 10 minutes. The only way I can continue on is to go to my Task Manager and "End
Process" and Start all over again, other wise I have seen my CPU usage at 87% and Memory at 500,000k+ and boom I can no longer navigate.
This happens with only Outlook email open or just a local web page, for instance right now I am typing this "question" and the only other site I am connected to is My Email and this site to send this Help Request and my Task Manger
says iexplore.exe*32 = "355,788 K" under the Memory listing. If I am connected to a Web page that has graphics or something running automatically I'm in the 800,000 K "Range" in less than 5 minutes and after about 10 I'm locked

Question: IE11 annoyance

Hello all. New to this forum. I ran a search and didn't find my particular problem so I started this new thread. I am also new to Windows 8.1. Let me first say, I'm not a fan of the new metro style anything so I have basically tried to default my system to try to be as Windows 7 like as possible. I use the desktop programs exclusively and consider the "apps" version of the programs to be a waste of space. I'll wait til update 2 hits before I make my decision regarding launcher programs or just downgrading back to 7.

So, the problem I have with IE11 are a few actually.

Firstly, is there any way to disable the totally annoying popup at the bottom of the screen. It pops up when downloading, or when a screen is in compatibility mode, or when something or other about the page is deemed so important that it needs to interrupt the operator. Its quite annoying, especially when downloading large quantities of files. I have disabled the pop up after each download and it more or less behaves ok but occasionally it will pop up out of nowhere. Very annoying

Second, I have noticed that when I have IE11 doing something in the background, it will randomly popup to remind me that its there. For instance, I was downloading a couple files and I pushed IE11 to the back. I had file explorer open because I was moving family photos of the hard drive to external storage. I had just selected all the files I wanted in a particular folder and whamo, IE11 popped back up to the front. No r... Read more

Question: IE11 vs. Edge

Does anyone know of a good source that explains the difference between IE11 and Edge? Pretty much all I've gathered is that Edge isn't as compatible with as many web-sites as IE11. Why the introduction of a new browser? Why isn't it more compatible?

Answer:IE11 vs. Edge

Browser Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 (Windows 10)

IE has become a failure and MS is trying to start over with a new browser, Edge. This is a ground up design of a new browser and it's looking good right now for a browser that's only about a year old. I've been using it for some time and it's been a good experience for me at least.

I've committed a series of stupid errors. The result being IE does not work and I get a message "Setup cannot continue because IE11 is already installed" or close when I try to reinstall it.

I clicked on a link in the GreenWinnick email (stupid) which tried to install a Zbot trojan virus. I ran through several malware software packages until something
called ComboFix made the virus go away. At that point IE stopped working.

Not knowing how to remove it properly, I started hacking my files and registry (stupid). Anything marked Internet Explorer got deleted as much as possible, Program files, HKey_Local Machine Software, anything.

Finally found Installed Updates in Control Panel/Programs. Unistalled updates for IE11 and 10. Still won't install. Any assistance would really be appreciated.

Windows 7 is not supposed to have IE11, but mine does (not of my doing).

Big problem. IE is a browser I never use, but can't get rid of. Something got into my system. It launches IE behind my back. I have to use task manager to get rid of it. But it never launches it just once. Each browser launched seems to browse on its own to a variety of sites. Many of them are sites I've been to and have no reason to suspect.

I can only get rid of them by deleting the iexplorer.exe process. All of them. I can't get rid of the application in task manager, so I have to go after the processes. One by one.

So I did all I could to damage IE. Can't reinstall, because I'm told I have a newer version. But for Windows 7, IE 11 isn't supposed to exist, but that's what I have. I denied it the right to launch. In every way I could, I tried to remove all aspects of IE. But now, I'm getting browsers launched that say "blank page", so I guess they're not going anywhere, but I'm getting DOZENS of them now. I gather that means it can't connect anywhere (I hope), but in response it keeps launching many times.

Even when I'm offline, it sometimes launches IE, but not often. On or offline, my mouse can suddenly stop and I'll hear two tones. A few seconds later, it's back with the tones reversed.

As I remove the launches now, something erases my whole desktop. I can use any open programs, but everything else is in... Read more

This is absolutely not correct! Windows 7 does support IE11. All of my Win 7 PCs have IE11 installed. Since you possibly have been breaking your Windows 7/IE11 installation by whatever actions you are taking, I suggest that you reinstall IE11. For any help you require with IE11 and Windows 7, I suggest that you post in the Software Forum.

For any real malware problems that you think you may have, you need to run the READ & RUN ME FIRST cleaning process. See the pinned/sticky threads in the malware forum.

I'm trying to use web crypto API with IE11 and encrypt/decrypt using AES-256-GCM. Encryption works fine, but decryption with the same parameters fails, without any advice what is wrong:
// key: 32 bytes
// iv: 12 bytes
// auth: 16 bytes
// data: tried 16-10000 bytes; result of previous encrypt
function decrypt(key, iv, auth, data, cb) {
var decryptOp = window.msCrypto.subtle.decrypt({
name: "AES-GCM",
iv: iv,
additionalData: auth,
tagLength: 128
}, key, data);

decryptOp.onerror = function(ev) {
cb(ev);
};

decryptOp.oncomplete = function(ev) {
var dec = ev.target.result;
cb(null, dec);
};
}
I know that IE11 has an older version of the web crypto API spec. Encryption/decryption with other browsers (tested Chrome and Firefox) with same parameters works. I can't find any examples for AES-GCM decryption with IE11 and the API documentation on https://msdn.microsoft.com/de-de/library/dn302338(v=vs.85).aspx
is not detailed enough. If I use AES-CBC I can successfully encrypt/decrypt. What is wrong with AES-GCM?
Did anyone try AES-GCM with web crypto on IE11?

Answer:IE11 looks fuzzy

You're not alone in experiencing this. IE has changed the font rendering. It's not a bug, it's a feature! Search the forum here or google it for more info.

Question: IE11 always hangs

Hi

I have W8.1 and IE11 always hangs after about 1 hour, all tabs do not respond and the top of the page says Internet Explorer (not Responding).

I can leave it for a couple of hours and nothing happens, when I right click on the IE on the taskbar and select
close window an error message comes up that IE is not responding and if I click "close" nothing happens, if I click search for solution and restart, a new IE restarts but the original stays and remains "not responding".

Even Task Manager cannot close it down I have to reboot to get rid of it.

Any ideas how to fix this, I believe I have the attest version of IE11 (11.01)

Cheers

Daniel

Hi,
I am running win 7 and ie 11. I tried opening PC Advisor this morning and all I get is the cards all around the edge and a blank centre. This happens whether I follow the links in the news letter or browse to the site. I haven't been into ie settings and changed anything so it's not me. At the moment I am using Chrome to access the site but prefer ie as it's what I've always used and would like to make it work properly. Other sites still open correctly. Help Please.
Alan

Answer:cannot see PC Advisor in ie11

Hi, I know you posted this a couple of days ago but that's when I too had problems opening this site and I use Opera 12.16 as my main browser and occasionally IE 11 and just couldn't go anywhere on PCA, all other sites OK, now everything seems back to normal, so just a blip.

Answer:IE10 over IE11

You cannot re-install IE10 unless you are using IE9, you just need to uninstall IE11 and it will revert back to IE10.

This guide is for IE10, but all the instructions are the same, just substitute IE11 for IE10 in the instructions and make sure you follow the part showing you how to hide the update or it will get re-installed.

Please follow this guide: How to install or uninstall IE10 in Windows 7

Windows and IE are [still] deeply intertwined.
"There are many components that constitute the [IE] browser. Most of the components are part of the operating system..."
Applications other than Microsoft's IE can, and do, call on those components to display HTML or execute scripts. "If you aren't upgraded to the current version of IE, you won't be able to apply the current security updates. This could result in some Windows components not being serviced..."
http://www.computerworld.com/article/3021824/web-browsers/microsoft-upgrade-to-ie11-even-if-you-dump-our-browser.html 
Bottom line:   Update to IE11 (on systems which allow it; e.g., Windows 7) even if you "dump" it in favor of Firefox, Palemoon, Chrome, Opera [or some other alternative browser].

Question: IE11 Version

Myself and several other users in my environment seem to be stuck on IE11 11.0.9600.16428CO while multiple other users are on a more recent iteration of IE11. It is important that we have the latest IE for testing of web apps. I attempted to install KB3148198
which I thought would remedy the situation however I am getting a message stating that the update is not applicable to my computer. Does anyone else know how to force IE to upgrade to a different version?

Question: IE11 vs IE10

Any noticeable improvements ? Speed/loading, better Flash images, etc ?
This would be one of the main reasons I would upgrade to 8.1. When I ran the 8.1 preview, the Flash images seemed slightly more clear, but difficult to compare.

Answer:IE11 vs IE10

Hi torre,

I am not a regular IE user but I can tell you that I noticed IE11 generally seems to be quicker on launch and faster when browsing in general. Good luck.

Question: Locking down IE11

Hi All,

Thank you in advance for reading my post. I am having trouble locking down IE11 on Win7 Pro. Let me start off with my goal. I am trying to stop the users on stand alone machines (No AD) from typing URL?s into both the IE?s ?Address bar? and the Start Menu?s
?Search/Run? box and going to their websites of choice while still giving them the functionality of Tabbed Browsing. I have created Links to allow them to go where they need to go.

I also have a Web Proxy server in play, but due to the nature and the way some websites are built, I can?t be too restrictive with it, otherwise some of the websites I do need to go to won?t load or function correctly as they themselves call upon other websites
to work.

Of all the research and online searching I?ve done, I found the following registry entries to help me in my quest:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Infodelivery\Restrictions]

"NoSearchBox"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions]

"NoFileOpen"=dword:00000001

"NoFileNew"=dword:00000001

"NoBrowserOptions"=dword:00000001

Question: IE11 and pdf files

Having some issues with pdf files. I already posted one question but this is more related to IE11 I think.

Using IE11 in desktop or Modern I get a prompt to open or save a pdf. Isn't there a way to automatically open it? I do use the default Reader app.

On my Win 7 computer using IE9 the pdf open automatically using Adobe Reader. But the point is they don't prompt me to open or save like IE11 does.

Question: IE11 Menu Bar

Hello everyone,I'm probably missing or overlooking something here but for some reason, I cannot get the menu bar to show up in IE11 (the toolbar with File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, and Help). I know to show it, it's possible to right-click beside the tabs in IE11 and click "Menu Bar" to show it but when I right-click, it doesn't show any toolbars to show. I also know the little trick to temporarily show the toolbar by opening the Start menu, typing in the textbox "internet explorer" and holding Alt and clicking the internet explorer icon to launch it (which also does not work). It seems no matter what I do, I cannot get the toolbar to appear. I have the Favorites bar shown (which I could ONLY get it to show by adding a site to the bar). Even now with the Favorites bar showing, I have no way of removing the Favorites bar. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Greatly appreciated! Windows 7 32-bitInternet Explorer 11Edit: Moved topic from All Other Applications to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Answer:IE11 Menu Bar

I was successful once or twice by pulling a middle school play out of the playbook; I copied.  Using another computer with great working IE, found all the directories involved with IE, copied the directories onto external media 'cause I was booted in Safe Mode. moved the external media from computer w/great-working IE to computer with not-good IE, and copied etal from ext media onto Safe Mode booted compute. Now, just before all that copying, I ran windows repair (all in one) along with a couple of utilities that reRegister IE files.  After all that copying, I ran the WR(AiO) [Safe Mode with Networking] again.  Sometimes that works.  Sometimes, a rollback is also needed.

Question: IE11 Freezes

Hi
I'm running Windows 10 and when I use IE11 as the browser, sometimes after a short period of time, the page freezes and gives a "message "Windows is not responding"

Windows 10 is fully up to date and this issue doesn't happen when I use "Edge , Chrome or Firefox". I like IE 11 and don't want to use the other browsers. I have reset IE 11, makes no difference.
Hopefully someone can help with a solution.

Answer:IE11 Freezes

- Check the Event Log and post error code. You may also google the error code for more info.

- Sometimes this is an issue with internet connection. But since other browsers, work maybe not.
Still may want to troubleshoot your connection and flush dns

Hello, dear friends. I have a most irritating issue.
When I open a .pdf file in IE11 I can't seem to back out of it. There is no other way, but to close the tab and search again.
I use FF and Chrome as well, but they do not seem to have the issue since they have their own readers integrated.

Answer:IE11 and backing out from .pdf

I noticed it too, if you mean it's like when you open a link on a page, or a news article. May it sandboxes the pdf out of safety reasons, they are known vector of attack, even Google warn against downloading them and prefers you use their online reader.
