Edge and IE11 cannot reach https://login.live.com

Question: Edge and IE11 cannot reach https://login.live.com

Hello,

I am unable to access Sign in to your Microsoft account on my desktop computer running Windows 10 on a home Ethernet network using Edge and IE11. I am connected to the Internet through a Fritz!Box 7490 DSL connection.

I originally tried to solve this problem as a network issue - and it may still turn out to be one - but since I am able to log in to my live.com account using Google Chrome on this computer and from Linux and OS X machines on the network, I am now looking at the possibility that it is some setting shared by Edge and IE11 that is causing my problem.

A secondary effect of this problem is that I am unable to activate Office 365 products, because once I enter my account email address, the activation process wants to take me to live.com to confirm my subscription.

I have seen a number of posts on this and other sites about the "Hmm..." messages, and that's the message I am shown when I try to access login.live.com. Since, in all of the other posts, the issue was a complete inability of Edge to access the sites, this seems to me to be something different. Thus, I started a new thread rather than add to one of the others.

I will be grateful for any and all suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Cheers,
hussar

Preferred Solution: Edge and IE11 cannot reach https://login.live.com

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.)

Hi,
1. I cannot find a solution for a problem accessing Microsoft forums websites from Windows 10 - IE11 and Edge browsers:
in EDGE - Hmm, we can't reach this page.   IE11 this page can't be displayed.
For about a year it worked at least from Edge. Now both cannot access Microsoft forums. All the other sites are accessible.
I am using a corporate proxy. The same sites are accessible from Windows 7 with IE11.
First I blamed our IE GPO with multiple settings. So for a test I placed my machine in Blocked OU (no IE GPO, proxy is set from different GPO).
Everything what I tried didn't help. The question: why just Microsoft forums (no other sites) are not accessible.
Did couple of tests from Windows 7 IE11 machines. The same Microsoft forums are perfectly accessible (all GPOs are applied).
Suddenly, found that one corporate Web App does the same : "This  page can't be displayed". On other Windows 7 it does work.
I am out of ideas now... cannot blame anymore our GPO or proxy...
Any advice?
Thanks

Hi, and thanks for taking a look at this. I have been having a redirect problem where any attempt to reach a Microsoft website or any website that even has that in the URL redirects me to a Windows Live login screen.

To use some features on the Nascar.com web site, you need to log in through https://secure.audience.nascar.com. Problem is, the site can't be reached or pinged. Increasing ping time generates nothing but timeout errors. Something in the computer is blocking it from reaching that web address, whether it's entered as a name or a numeric address. This problem happens with four different web browsers - IE8, Firefox 3, Chrome and Safari.

It's a Gateway laptop with Vista SP1. It happens with a LAN connection. WiFi and Ev-Do. The web address is available on one machine with an identical WiFi link but not with the Gateway laptop.

Here are some of the attempts to solve the problem that have failed:

Resetting TCP/IP stack.
Switching DNS server.
Removing Norton Internet Security 2008.
Shutting down Windows Defender.
Running the computer with no firewall.
Removing and reinstalling network adapters and reinstalling drivers.
Running Vista in safe mode with networking.
Removing all temporary files and history.
Adding the domain to the IE trusted sites list.

The secure.audience.nascar.com address and the nascar.com domain are not blocked in the Hosts list.

NASCAR tech support has no idea what's going on.
Several checks of other web sites and Microsoft's online support on problems with accessing https secure sites have turned up no problems with accessing that site.

Hello,
we run IE9 in our company. In fact, if we try to update a client's IE9 to IE11, he can't reach any website anymore. This happens often after hibernation mode but in my case directly after the update. 
It loads infinitely long. If we restart the client, the problem is gone for a while.
I used WireShark to get a look into, with the following results.
10.99.246.4 is our Domain Controller.
10.199.150.146 is my client.

Hi all,
the current cumulative update KB3161608 blocks older HTTPS sites on IE11, which are not having current TLS/Keylength/Ciphers standards.
This may be reasonable for the Internet, but in our company's intranet it's a desaster, as older programs/applications we are connecting to cannot simply get updated (e.g. Dell DRAC access on older server).
Now we only get a "This page can't be displayed" error.

Two questions:
1. Is this a bug or planned behaviour?
2. Does anyone know what we can do to restore the ability to connect to these sites per IE11 (with KB3161608 installed)?

Hello all, I've recently bought an Ideapad U430 Touch, and I love it.  I have one complaint: when I use two-finger scrolling, if I move my fingers to the top or bottom edge of the touchpad, the scrolling will continue automatically (even if my fingers are not moving).  This is not what I want. I have the most recent Synaptics drivers obtained from Lenovo's website.  I have looked under Synaptics settings for a way to disable this 'feature', but have come up empty (this is different than edge motion, which I have disabled).  Google hasn't been of much help, either.   Any ideas?  Also, side question: is it possible to customize the touchpad edge-swipe gestures?  I don't understand why they can't be changed from Synaptics settings. Thanks!

I talked to a friend of mine who knows about computers, and even he's never seen anything like this.

It's pretty simplistic, really. When I turn on my computer, it starts normally at first, but as soon as it would normally play the beginning tune and show the login screen, instead, the musical tone cuts off, and the screen flickers wildly at seizure-inducing speeds. I can see through the flickering the blue of the login screen, yet no profile icons or the text box. As well, I can see the little keyboard button, though its been pushed to the top left of the screen, and I can see and move my mouse normally (though the mouse icon itself relentlessly flickers, like the screen, between normal mouse, mouse with loading circle, and loading circle)

I have no idea what could be causing this, especially considering I just installed Windows 7 fresh all of 2 days ago. As the title says, I can still log in normally when in safe mode. I've heard a number of different opinions as to the cause, such as the prefetch/superfetch programs, possible faulty motherboard, the fact that I didn't do anything special even though I installed it onto a solid state drive, etc.

Any ideas on how I can solve this? I can provide further computer details if needed, as well as a list (that a friend had suggested I make) of every program that I install or alter from the initial Windows install.

Answer:Can't reach login screen normally, though safemode works.

Hi there,

So the other day I booted my computer up like normal and it got halfway through the four windows lights coming together to create the windows logo (after bios boot and just before user login screen) when it flashed with a quick blue screen then rebooted on its own accord. There's no way I can get past this point in the system boot that I've been able to figure out and I was hoping that someone here could help me.

I turned off automatic restart on system failure and it said something about the file cng.sys, so I am thinking that file has become corrupted somehow. Or am I way off. I don't recall installing anything new hardware or software-wise recently and I'm unsure how this happened.

Things I have tried:
Automatic startup repair
Removing CMOS battery and reinserting
Removing individual RAM sticks and trying each of the two separately
Unplugging everything from the back except the mouse and keyboard
Boot to safe mode
Flashing a BIOS Update
Inserting Windows 7 CD and doing a system restore and the other repair options on there
SFC scan with the Windows CD

I assembled the computer myself in 2010 sometime and it has
Gigabyte h67ma-ud2h-b3 motherboard
2x2GB RAM
GTX 560
Intel i5 2500
Corsair PSU - 500 watt I think?
card reader

Whenever I start up my computer now it starts up as normal, except that after the windows logo on the black screen with the bar at the bottom dissapears it doesn't go to the login screen. It just stays as a black screen. I can get the computer to start up in all three safe modes, but I can't get the computer to get to the login screen starting normally. I have tried system restoring to yesterday but that didn't work either. I haven't installed anything since yesterday so I don't know what the problem is. Anybody know what the problem might be?
 

Answer:Unable to reach login screen on startup

Have you tried doing a System Restore to last week?

When in Safe Mode you can try running check disk to check your hard drives for errors. Go Start>Run and type chkdsk /r. You will need to restart your PC for this to run on boot. Make a note of any errors.

Sup guys,

The problem I have atm is has decided to just die on me by refusing to load the log in screen. It also must be mentioned this problem started when the power went out.. Other than that it has never happened before over the time I have owned this computer (about 6-8 months), and I'v had several electricity black outs before that..

My Specs are as followed
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 32Bit
RAM: Kingston 2GB
HD: Seagate 500gb
GFX: Nvidia 8800GT
PowerSupply: Inbuilt, about 500W
PROC: Intel 6600quadcore

The screen before the log in screen says somthing like:
Some data hasn't been saved when you shutdown on the last session would you like to boot on safemode?

When I tried to get into the OS through safe mode, or running safemode and command prompt it made no difference.. I just got the black screen with the cursor loading..

I'v tried ultimatebootcd and some of the HD diagnostic stuff on that. I'v tried defragging it, running antispyware, virus software but nothing. I'v tried some of the system diagnostic stuff on the vista disc.. The system repair thing tells me to unplug any external devices which I have.. (I checked like 5 times lol), system restore can't restore to a previous date either and the full system restore doesn't do anything.

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.

edge seems massively dumbed down, very bare options configuration compared to IE11.

From what I can see all of the following are missing.

No options to toggle tls 1.1 1.0 1.2 etc.
No options to toggle gpu acceleration
No options to set file cache location (I like to use ram disk)
No security zones
No tracking protection lists
No addons
No advanced cookie settings
No per domain settings
No options to adjust certificate verification
No options to adjust UTF-8 and IDN
No toggle for crash protection
No tab options

Basically edge feels like a mobile orientated app, as it uses the "modern" interface.

Is there a reason to use edge instead of IE11? aside from future proofing as I am assuming IE11 at some point will be obsoleted by Microsoft.

Answer:is it me or is ie11 better than edge?

Edge is still very early in it's development cycle.. give it time and it will get much better.

Oh and I'm using it right now to post here and I like it.. very fast and clean.

I told it startup like normal and i see the Windows XP icon and the loading bar underneath. But then the screen goes black and the moniter just sits there on, with just black.
 
I thinking it may be either the RAM card has an error of the motherboard itself is failing, but im not sure how to test these. Any and all help would be greatly appriciated.

When the computer boots up, the Dell motherboard boots up fine, then Windows get's stuck at the spinning dots. I can't reach the login menu at all. The only things I can reach are the BIOS from F2 and another options menu from F12. From the spinning dots I can still Ctrl Alt Del out but only to shut down or restart. From those menus I haven't found a way to reach safe mode or even reinstall if necessary.

This is a laptop that came pre-installed with Windows 10 so there's nothing to downgrade to. I also don't have an optical drive so there's no disc, only the Windows 10 that came already inside the system.

The thing is, I think I know why this is happening... I changed the ownership of the entire C drive. I imagine now there's no way for me to get back in and change it back. I haven't had this Windows 10 installation long so I won't lose that much from reinstalling it, I just need a way to do it quickly, like before Monday.

Hi Folks
Be extra careful currently as there is STILL a problem in security with IE11 and Edge which can allow "unscrupulous" users to hijack your browser / do other nasty things - and currently NO A/V software can protect against this.

BE VERY CAREFUL if using IE11 / EDGE until Ms applies the patch. DO NOT RELY SOLEY ON YOUR A/V SOFTWARE - this won't protect you in this case. People are often lulled into a false sense of security after installing some extra A/V software -- this actually makes them MORE likely to fall into traps than people who only have the base WD stuff installed but browse carefully. !!!

Here's the article - from BBC (and Google) so it's not from some dubious journalist writing for a magazine hoping to make a few bucks.

Has anyone figured a way to turn this crap off?

Yes, I know that Edge is Microsoft's "preferred" browser. No, I'm not interested. I need IE for work purposes because of legacy ActiveX components, so that annoying icon does no good.

I'm trying to get the new build ready for work on our domain, but considering all our employees heavily use IE every day, this is going to get on everybody's nerves and fast!

I tried copying the iexplore.exe from Anniversary Update (1607) to 1703 VM, and got an error about a missing ordinal in the EXE. So I'm thinking they added it that way - not seeing any settings, GPOs, or any other way to turn it off.

Even better when you're logged in as the local Administrator account which cannot run Edge or any other Modern apps but the stupid icon still shows up and is completely useless

(Sorry, i can't give you the actual url, because this is only accesible in our company intranet)
Internet Explorer 11 has Problems doing this, no image tile can be loaded, F12 DevTools say that the HTTPS GET Request is status "aborted". If i switch the debug mode (compability) from "Edge" to "10" or "9" everthing
works fine.
Another thing we testet: If i copy the url from which the image is supposed to be loaded and paste this in a new browser tab, the image appears like it should.

Using IE8 on Windows 7 Pro on my laptop, I am able to login to the control panel of my Web site (hosted by Siteground, if that's significant) but on my desktop computer, with the same software, I can't. Siteground had me run a PING and a TRACERT and concluded that everything is just dandy and told me to find a "local computer technician" to solve this problem. The desktop is brand new (just a few days old) so I'm relatively confident that it has to do with a software setting somewhere as opposed to, for example, a blocked 443 port at the router. I experience the same problem in Firefox so I'm guessing the software issue isn't with IE8 specifically. Help?!

add the site to "trusted" sites. Then check your IE settings to make sure you're using SSL 2.0 and or 3.0

I have had Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit) installed on my Gateway NV53 laptop. I must note that my laptop dual boots Windows and Ubuntu 10.04 with GRUB 2 as my default bootloader (which employs a chainloader to boot Windows 7). 4 weeks ago, I began experiencing problems with my Windows partition. Everytime I booted up, the bootloader would show the Windows 7 logo, and then the computer would restart without ever reaching the login screen.

At first, I thought the issue was with the Windows 7 bootloader. So, I used the Windows 7 Repair Disk (for 64 bit machines) and from the command line, rebuilt the BCD from scratch. I even made Windows 7 the default bootloader (instead of GRUB, because I suspected maybe GRUB was being buggy), and still I experienced the same problems. I concluded that the problem could not be the bootloader seeing that I rebuilt a new one from scratch and the problem persisted. I then proceeded to remove the most recent hotfix (I had read somewhere that lately users have been experiencing issues with hotfixes offered by Microsoft) using the Windows 7 Emergency Recovery Disk (ERD), and that did not fix the problem either. I also scanned my partition for viruses and none were found.

I should also note that I have tried booting with Safe mode, Safe mode with networking, and Safe mode with command prompt, and all of these options result in the same boot issue. Furthermore, I have performed Startup repair and that does not work either.

Well, you didn't really tell us what problems you were having with performing the import.

Answer:Running windows 10 AEd . confused over IE11 and EDGE

Windows 10 comes with both IE11 and Edge built in. Edge is Microsoft's recommended browser and the one where all future development will concentrate. But the business world would throw up their hand in horror if IE was removed - many bespoke company Intranet applications will only work with IE because only IE can run Microsoft ActiveX controls. Indeed Microsoft's own Update Catalog website will only work with IE for the same reason.

You have IE if you really need it but MS don't really want you to use it, so it's hidden away on an infrequently visited part of the All Apps list. It's to be found under 'Windows Accessories'. The only other place you can find it is (ironically) in Edge. Open any webpage, click on the 'three dots' icon at the top right and one of the items in the menu that appears is 'Open with Internet Explorer'. However you get to it, once running you can pin it to the taskbar.

But finding IE isn't necessarily going to help you fix Edge's video problems, the settings you need to change may be in Edge, not IE. It's not clear what you mean by 10 A.Ed. Can you type Winver in the search box next to Start and run it. To be of more help we need to know the full set of numbers shown there for the version and OS build.

What I can tell you is that for my version 1607 (OS Build 14393.187) Edge has no such problems showing videos from MSN.

Hi there

While Silverlight is as everybody knows RUBBISH it IS a requirement for watching SKY GO on Windows. Sky GO on Android doesn't use it so It must be possible for Ms to have some other method of protecting DRM material.

So (and SKY GO is used by loads of SKY customers --particularly for Sport and Movies) as EDGE which (intentionally) doesn't support Silverlight people will have to keep IE11 for the foreseeable future - unless one wants to use CHROME - which I don't really like --YMMV on this one of course.

If Ms wants people to switch as quick as possible to EDGE they need to get current applications to work with it.

At least though SKY GO works on W10 !!.

(For those who don't know what SKY GO is - it's the service from the U.K Satellite Broadcaster SKY that people can use to stream programs on to their tablets, computers and phones - quite a good service BTW if you have SKY TV.

Good on some Rail services too in UK where trains have fast Wi-Fi available !!!

Hi there

What a DOGS DINNER of a mess -- SKY GO is still using Silverlight for DRM - however it's deprecated in Windows so sooner or later IE11 won't work with it. Edge of course doesn't work with it, and the non Ms browsers seem randomly to work or not work.

This is NOT an Ms problem though -- surely SKY could use similar DRM / Copyright protection to NETFLIX etc - since the ANDROID application works without any problem whatsoever they must be using something other than Silverlight.

I only suspect that SKY would rather get people to sign up to their SKY Q service -- it's fine but not very portable if you want to watch on a laptop instead of on a small tablet or smart phone.

If Ms would RETIRE Silverlight completely then SKY would be forced to fix SKY GO for their customers !!!!

I suppose the words Customer and Service should probably be removed from the English Language or relegated tp a History archive as it seems with pretty well ANY service one subscribes to there is just about ZERO customer service available any more.

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

I get a "There is a problem with this website's security certificate". The security certificate presented by this website is not secure. Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept and data you send to the server.

I cannot just accept the cert nor can I look at it like I could in Windows 7.

I would like to replace working certificate for the localhost (127.0.0.1), with an end date in a few months. (Win10 - Edge - IE11)
I managed to create a certificate (made a copy form the previous one with Powershell), and imported it in the list of Trusted Root Certificates. I removed the previous certificate.

But Edge (and IE11 since I suppose Edge has no support for this yet) is still pointing to the old certificate.
Does anyone know how to make the browsers point to the new certificate?

Yesterday I was forced to reboot my computer as MS installed some Windows Updates. After the reboot I can no longer access google.com's main page and some other https site like my companies Citrix Storefront login page. These all worked before the forced update. There were 2 updates installed KB3142588 and KB3140768. I uninstalled the KB3142588 and rebooted and everything worked again. Later in the day again MS installed something and forced me to reboot. After the reboot, the same problem came back. Funny thing now, is that those 2 updates are no longer there and were replaced by others. One of them I could uninstall and the other I cannot. I uninstalled the one (didn't write done the KB#) and rebooted and still the same problem. It only really seems to be issues with some https sites. I can't believe that there is a problem with googles certificate.

Hi.
I'm currently having trouble opening https://login.microsoftonline.com on a Windows Server 2016 running IE11.1198.14393.0 (Update version: 11.0.42, KB4018271). It displays a limited page with the text "It looks like you're on a slow connection. We've
disabled some images to speed things up."
Some troubleshooting reveals that IE is unable to load a script:
SCRIPT5022: Failed to load external resource ['https://secure.aadcdn.microsoftonline-p.com/ests/2.1.5975.9/content/cdnbundles/jquery.1.11.min.js']
If I try to open this URL/script directly I only get a "This page can?t be displayed" and the developers console shows that dnserror.-htm has been loaded.
I've also tried opening the file using http (not https) which also works. Upon finding that out I tried enabling/disabling different SSL/TLS options. When disabling SSL3.0 and TLS1.0 I get a different response, "Turn on TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 in
Advanced settings"
All updates have been applied on Windows. I've tried resetting IE both clearing history, cookies, temp files and using the reset button under the Advanced tab. I have also re-installed IE using this command:
dism /online /disable-feature:"Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64"
Everything works in Chrome by the way. The reason why I don't just stick to Chrome is that I use this server as an admin point and run powershell scripts that are using both my domain admin, and Office365/ExchangeOnline credentials.

I cannot access the Plesk login page to get into my website's control panel.
Here's what I've tried: disabling firewall & antivirus, using 3 different browsers (Avant, Firefox, IE), rebooting, clearing cache. I'm running windows XP on a new HP laptop and have WiFi. My ISP and webhost both say it's not them. Desperate for help! I keep getting the "page cannot be displayed/ you are not connected to the internet/may have typed the wrong address/ timed out" messages. I can get to other https login pages/sites with no problem. But this one just will not open. I can get to the "default plesk page" which offers no login but that's it.
Thanks for any help!

For the last month i'm having login problems. For some reason reCAPTCHA fails to connect to google.com, and im not able to log into youtube/gmail(can't find accounts.google.com) or hotmail.com. Random sites like Rainbow Six Siege forums don't work properly either. And the biggest one is not being able to log into my bank account.

I have asserted to at least be a local problem with my PC since mobile and other laptops on the same network work fine. Of another post I tried to run SFC /runnow ill post the log as an attachment.

It also says that some internet protocols are missing and could not be fixed, this is to general for me to follow up though could support the idea that something is wrong with the HTTPS protocol.

I tried this tutorial to re-register dll files: (Solved) Cannot Access Secure Sites - Https websites not opening View
wintrust.dll gives a DllRegisterServer Failed with error code 0x80070005
initpki.dll is missing
gpkcsp.dll is missing as wel.
Didn't try more from that tutorial seeing as it probably wouldn't work from this point onwards.

This problem has been going on since the start of December and since my internet connection is shared, I thought it would be a local internet problem, but it seems not to be.

I tried reinstalling windows from scratch and the problem persists.

Answer:General login problems, might be HTTPS protocol

I feel like I know what the culprit was that did this. I have been using IObit programs for a while, though they never did something wrong, maybe that in combination with the new update screwed up some DLLs. Will try a reinstall to recreate the problem.

OS: Windows 10 Pro v.1607
Suddenly Pinterest.com fails to load in Edge; a few pins appear but then the page freezes. This same Pinterest account works fine in IE on this same computer and also loads fine in Edge on other computers. Here is what I've tried without success:

1. Clear browser cache and cookies
2. Delete all files in Edge recovery folder
3. Sign in with another Pinterest user account
4. Sign in with local account instead of Microsoft Account
5. Removed saved password for Pinterest
6. Reboot computer

Edge performs perfectly with all other sites. This issue is apparently limited to this one site in this one browser on this one computer. Pinterest support suggested we use IE Of course, but I like to figure out what causes these things to happen. It may be irrelevant but this issue was first observed following a batch of Windows updates on 12/13/16. The only one that looked like a remote possibility was KB3206632, but that was a significant cumulative update that I really do not want to uninstall. Furthermore, that same update was applied to another computer which does not exhibit this issue. I'm out of ideas. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Regards,
John

Answer:One site (Pinterest) no longer loads in Edge but it will load in IE11.

You've tried all the obvious things I would have suggested, but there is one more you could have a look at, the 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' setting. This is hidden on a 'Developer settings' page which you get to by typing about:flags in Edge's address bar. Are the 'working' Edge PCs also on 1607? If so, compare this settings page on the Edge that doesn't work with the settings for one that does and see if they are different. If only the 'non-working' Edge is on 1607, then try turning 'Use Microsoft Compatibility List' on or off and see if it makes a difference.

Hi there

Is there any way to copy the stored passwords / account information saved in IE11 to edge

I've a couple of account logins (not Banks I hasten to add) on some sites where I can't remember all the details -- logon automatically in IE11 but I need to try EDGE a bit more now and can't remember those details.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Copy saved passwords / account info from IE11 to Edge

You should be able to find them in Manage Web Credentials in Control Panel. If there are only a couple you can click on "Show" and it will tell you your password and then you can enter it in Edge.


Both Edge and IE store user id/passwords here I believe but I'm not sure how to make one browser use the credentials saved by the other or even if you can.

Hello,
I'm encountering a problem on different computers.
Internet Explorer 11 and Edge are not able to open files from a shared folder located on the same computer.
For example, let's say I typed this "\\10.100.100.10\folder_1\DOC_FILE.doc" on the address bar.
The browser then shows : "This page can't be displayed".
When I display more information, the error "INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND" appears.
I have already tried to uncheck "Enable TCP Fast open" and it is still not working.
It seems like this problem cannot be reproduced on all IE11/EDGE browsers, and can be encountered on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Any ideas ?
Best regards

I have the latest IE11 on win7 with all updates. After being sufficiently scared by ransomware reports, I decided to run IE isolated as a different user from my main desktop (standard UAC settings). The idea is whatever nasty comes in through the back door
will only harm a fake normal user's "documents" and leave mine in peace!
I can see in the task manager that there are a number of IE running processes all correctly set to that different user
However, IE loses login information. For example, when I login to my yahoo account or a phpBB forum with the option "remember me and login automatically", it doesn't. If I keep the same tab active it is ok, but if I browse away to say google, and
come back to the phpBB page, I have to login again. Which is a pain
what can be wrong and is there any solution? thanks

Every once in a while IE11 suddenly forgets to automatically fill in my credentials to websites making it necessary to manually enter them - Well... Selecting them from the dropdown list where you'd enter the credentials would be more accurate.

Doesn't happen with every website - Eightforums for an example, which I haven't visited in QUITE a while, still had me active and ready to make this post while daily visited Websites like Deviantart.com occasionally require me to reactivate my Login.

As far as I can tell this happens on both the Desktop as well as on the Metro version and on all of my 3 PC's running W8.1

Any ideas what is causing this and how to prevent this from happening?

Thanks in Advance :)

I belong to a forum where we sometimes post a music video, and I never had problems until a couple of days ago seeing a video that was downloaded to the forum in full-screen mode.

It happens in IE11 and Edge browsers, and just started. A couple of other people are having the same problems. The error message actually blocks the title of the video, so you can't read who it is.

Any idea how to go in these browsers and change the permissions to view full screen for YouTube videos even if they're on another site? On YouTube, the full screen works fine.

I haven't changed any settings at all in the last couple of days. Any advice appreciated.

Hi. For the past few days I have been unable to access work email using Sign in to your account address as I have done for years.

Is it possible that I disabled something in Windows Features that could be causing this issue? I know I disabled XPS services and XPS viewer. I also disabled and enabled Internet Explorer. Im unable to access the email using any browser on my PC. However I am able to access it using my iPhone and my work computer. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Unable to access work email using https://login.microsoftonline.com/

Hi Tonightwetaco

Could you explain what you mean can't access? Are you unable to navigate to website? Do you get a message? Is it just rebuffing your id and password? You can manage account at account.microsoft.com

Have you tried another browser, maybe Chrome, IE or Firefox?

XPS is Microsoft's idea of a PDF (Portable document format).

I setup a new user on a stand-alone Windows 10 laptop this weekend and noticed that most websites hang in both Edge and IE11.  I had a look at the user's rights and made sure that they were removed from the local USERS group and only were a member of
the Administrators group.  Then I looked at IE itself and found that if I ran IE as administrator, it worked fine, so I logged the user out and back in again, and still nothing.  I also noticed that IE has a setting to run with administrative privileges,
which I enabled and still nothing.  I thought at this point that it might be a website issue, or at least an ISP issue.  I tried the same sites with the first logged in account on the same machine and everything worked fine.
At this point I was looking at a user rights issue, I thought.  Then I tried the same sites with the new user using Chrome and everything worked fine.  So I'm at a loss as to what this might be.  I've check that IE is using software rendering
so that's not the issue.
Any ideas, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
An example of a site would be to go to www.webex.com then try to log in.  The login page just spins and spins.

When using IE 11 everybody in my organization who tries to do their time-cards ( https://online.adp.com/portal/login.html ) gets a certificate error that the certificate authority isn't valid. This happens to everyone who uses IE. Some people get

I think this is a new bug.
I have Win10 ver 1703 Build 15063.413. I have several Microsoft accounts for separate purposes. I'm discovering that unlike in the past, IE11 is maintaining a cookie o some other mean of login despite my efforts to both logout AND delete cookies & temp files. after clearing via 'internet optons' menu in IE I close the app.
when I rerun, and browse to onedrive.com [clean], I'm immediately logged in to the same account I signed out of.
when I then sign-out again, it appears to do so & takes me to a different ms page. but open another tab and fresh-type 'onedrive.com' hit enter I'm right back where I signed out of.

any ideas on how to truly cleanup?
I can work around it by using Opera or Privvy mode of IE11 but I would rather it do as I command it.
