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

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

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

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

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.)

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.

Just built a new box with an ASUS X99m ws board and Intel 5930 processor, booting from a Samsung 950 Pro with 4 WD blacks configured in a RAID 10 storage and backup.
I've read and tried every googled fix and trick for getting MS Edge to load pages to no avail. Even went so far as to try the admin only delete and reinstall of MS Edge. No luck. Anybody know of anything else that doesn't show up in a standard search?
What's interesting is Edge works fine on an old DELL XPS 720 from 2006 that was upgraded a week ago. No luck on the hot, new one.

(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>
</site-list>

Or am I missing something here?

Hi,
First post to technet, please forgive me if there may be some forum etiquette that I need to be aware of and have not followed in this post.
A bit of background to this topic, our client works predominantly inside a Windows Server 2012 R2 RDS environment that is managed by us as their support company. They use IE 11 version 11.0.9600.18817 (update version 11.0.47).
They have recently tasked us with trying to make the site https://www.360siteview.com accessible within their RDS environment using IE. Currently the site loads to a gray/black coloured page and nothing further happens. The site itself uses flash for most
of its functionality as far as I can see, and even in the problematic environment you can see a flash object has loaded in the background somewhat as you can see flash options in the right-click context menu of that page.
I have tried to replicate this problem in a fresh Server 2012 R2 VM with very little changes bar the Desktop Experience features to enable flash player on IE. I tried to access the site and had no issue doing so, all features of the page loaded and displayed
a sign in form. I then updated the IE11 browser to the same version as the client currently uses and was still unable to replicate the problem they encounter. The next step was to replicate IE options from their browser to the one inside the test VM and once
done I was still unable to replicate the issue they see.
At this point I have tried to get in touch with the company that... Read more

For about 7-9 days I've been having problems loading Pinterest. It either loads partially (just a few pins show up, with lots of blank colored squares where the rest should be) or it doesn't load at all. My overall Internet browsing seems slower than usual, as well, but not for every website.
 
I use Google Chrome on a Windows 7 64-bit laptop. The problem seems to have started after recent Windows updates were installed. I did a rollback and it worked temporarily, but of course, there were security updates that needed to be reinstalled, and I'm not at all sure that the updates are the cause. Here's everything I've tried:
 
- Using IE or Firefox
- Clearing cache
- Cleaned computer with CCleaner
- Disabled, then removed all extensions
- Disabled Chrome's PepperFlash

I've run malware bytes scan and avast virus scan with no results or threats found.  I am running ie11, latest update and have tried this with and without my scanners active.  I click on a pic in pinterest and the screen does nothing until I hit the refresh icon then it loads.  It does this with virtually every pic from the main screen.  I don't think I have a virus or malware and since this seems to be an internet or website problem, I thought I'd start here.  Please, can you give me some advice on what steps I should take to determine what is causing this.  I don't seem to be having any problems on other websites although it does take a long time to upload photos to facebook, don't know why.

Starting this week, on my 2 desktop hardwired computers, YouTube videos are now loading slowly using both IE 11 & FireFox. I downloaded Google Chrome (owner of YouTube) and they load quickly (as they did previously on IE 11 & Firefox). All other web sites still load and play videos quickly in all 3 browsers. Only YouTube affected in non-Google Browsers.

The only things that changed are:
1. I updated Windows 7 with last week's updates,
2. This week Google changed something in its search results to favor mobile app-efficient webpages.

I cannot figure out what's going on. Sometimes when I click on a YouTube video in a non Chrome browser it says" error; try again in 30 minutes". Anyone else having this issue starting this week?

Answer:YouTube Suddenly Loads Slowly In IE11 & FF but not Chrome?

Try switching youtube to html5 player mode if you are not already and see if that improves things.

Frequently in IE11 when I click on something that would load a new web page, IE11 loads the menu bars,etc, but the actual page image/content does not load - IE just displays a blank (white) page. If I hit PFK 5 to refresh the page, the page reloads as it should have loaded the first time. Firefox and Chrome do not have this problem. Also, I've noticed that in IE11 I often have to click on an item a 2nd time in order for the browser to react. I have done no diagnostics up to now. I'm running an HP desktop PC, quad AMD cpu, 6GB memory, Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit with all Windows Updates applied. Anyone know how to fix IE11?

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.

Noticed on my laptop (first one I updated to the Anniversary update) my email is set to "basic" with no extra's or other bells and whistles and can't be changed. When I open it from my browser it comes up with a message that I need to run a supported browser. I clicked on the FAQ's and another information link at the bottom of my email inbox page and that when I found that IE11 is no longer supported with security and other improvement updates.

I use My Yahoo as my home page and Yahoo webmail through my ISP ATT, used Edge to check things out on the upgraded laptop and it works ok, yahoo webmail works as it should. It was a surprise (not really with some of the shenanigans that have went on with forcing W10 on users) that IE is now unsupported.

There are many alternative browsers around, I think I'll give Edge another try and see if it's moved forward enough to be "ready for prime time" When I was on the insider program it definitely wasn't ready yet, tried again after RTM when I left insiders and still the same. Edge just wasn't ready yet, it seemed to be faster, but had far less features than IE.

I have two more of my computers and both of my wife's to update yet. I do have one done so I can give it another try, I'm still going to upgrade all the computers, just might not be right away now.

Answer:MS no longer supports IE11

IE is still in 10 and it's still supported with security updates. MS is not going to do anymore development to it and in some time in the future it will be dropped.

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

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.

I am having problems on my laptop using things like Cortana across user accounts. The wheel spins and spins when I click on Cortana. I think the problem stems from the fact edge and IE11 cannot load outlook.com or go into things like account settings. It's only this causing the issue, all other sites work apart from these critical MS sites. I've tried changing DNS settings to alternates like google but nothing works to fix this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated? On my other desktop PC I have no issues. All language settings and packs are correctly set as UK. Am at a total loss. I tried a restore point but that was no better. I've had this issue crop up intermittently ever since getting the laptop. Sometimes it works ok but after a while the issue will re-occur without rhyme or reason. I notice under family setitngs 'Can't connect to family settings, your user data may not be upto date' sometimes comes up too. It's as if the laptop is having trouble connecting to MS server some of the time

Answer:Outlook.com unreachable via edge and IE11

The machine seems to be having real problems signing into MS. For example if I launch films and TV I see lower left 'Can't sign in'. I think there is something amiss logging into the MS account causing all the issues. Store is slow and unable to update apps, always an error message after ages of acquiring license. I don't really want to have to try and create a new user acc given everything I have setup/installed

Is there a way of signing out of the MS account and signing back in because something is seriously screwed up

I tried a restore point but that was no better. I've had this issue crop up intermittently ever since getting the laptop. Sometimes it works ok but after a while the issue will re-occur without rhyme or reason. I notice under family setitngs 'Can't connect to family settings, your user data may not be upto date' sometimes comes up too. It's as if the laptop is having trouble connecting to MS server some of the time

Answer:Outlook.com unreachable via edge and IE11

The machine seems to be having real problems signing into MS. For example if I launch films and TV I see lower left 'Can't sign in'. I think there is something amiss logging into the MS account causing all the issues. Store is slow and unable to update apps, always an error message after ages of acquiring license. I don't really want to have to try and create a new user acc given everything I have setup/installed

Is there a way of signing out of the MS account and signing back in because something is seriously screwed up

Cheers
Wayne

My PL2303 (USB/RS232) driver no longer loads.

When I plug in the device, Vista goes to Windows Update for the driver and finds none. In Device Manager (DM), the annotation for the Port is Unknown device. When I try to manually install the driver through the DM, it fails. The code is sometimes 1 and other times 19, or 28), The error message is that some parts of the INF file are invalid.

Until now, several drivers for Vista installed, although one actually worked.

System Info says I'm running Vista Home Premiun X86-based PC, but the sticker on the laptop says Athlon 64 X2 dual-core (Acer Aspire 4530).

Any fixes?

Seriously, this site locks up and crashes IE 11 on Win 8.1 desktop. It works a bit better if you block everything, but, considering this is a site all about Windows, it should work better.

I have posted this question/complaint on another thread, but I have been locked out. So I'll try again. Why can't Microsoft fix the Edge import process to reliably import all favorites from IE 11? I have tried all the workarounds including copying the IE 11 favorites to the <username>/appdata/local...directory and the editing the Registry. Nothing works. Why should it be so difficult for MS to implement a reliable Favorites transfer? What is the point of using Edge, when IE 11 is more friendly?

Any thoughts/suggestions? I have been using Windows 10 for over a year and the problem persists.

Answer:Problems Importing Favorites into Edge from IE11

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

So, let's skip the diagnosis and jump right to an alternative approach...

You might consider using a 3rd-party application called EdgeManage to see if you have better luck with performing an import operation from Internet Explorer.

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 !!!

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,

This morning www.gmail.com would no longer load for me on my work computer. It was working fine in the morning and stopped somewhere after 10a. Our work uses gmail so I know it wasn't blocked intentionally. It does not seem to load in IE 8 or Firefox 3.5.3. I also just downloaded Google Chrome and it would not load there either.

The weird part is that my co-workers computer is able to load Gmail. I can also access Google and search in Google, but cannot access Gmail.

I've tried re-setting the router. I've done a clear cache, and also a friend suggested I do this through the command prompt which I did.

I also called RCN (our cable service provider) and they had me do a winsock reset via command prompt but that did not fix the problem. They said they couldn't help me trouble shoot any further.

I have AVS Antivirus 8.5.421 installed and didn't see anything being "blocked" under advanced settings.

Can anyone help me fix this? Many thanks in advance...

The computer immediately crashed almost as if I had held down the power button. When I attempted to restart it, my only 2 options were to start normally or launch repair mode. Normal didn't work, so I launched repair. Repair ran for close to 4 days. In the first 36 hours it asked to be restarted twice, after that it just kept running until finally I gave up and shut it down with the power button.

Its how they are set up in the bios.
The fast one probably has the quick boot option turned on.
Has the hard drives and cd drive predetermined as opposed to auto-detect.

Its normaly "F2" or "Del" to get into the bios.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

Anyone notice on youtube if playing a video that the sound will sometimes continue to play despite navigating off the page (such as clicking a site pinned in the favourites bar whilst video is playing). Seems to be only youtube vids, and only IE11 (other browsers not showing this). Doesn't happen all the time and tends to be only when doing it quickly after the start of a video. So if I let it run a few seconds then the problem doesn't occur.

Whilst on subject of IE11, anyone use Skysports.com. Am seeing long running script error on this site on both our win 10 machines using IE11. Again only this site it seems, and only this browser!

Answer:IE11 Youtube videos sound continuing despite vid no longer playing

Yes, I get that too (just IE, just YouTube). It seems to continue playing everything it has got in the buffer, even though you have navigated away. Closing the tab seems to end it. I have developed the habit of pausing playback before navigating away.

Seems to have started a couple of updates ago.

Hi, I've been using W7 for quite a while now and, then 2 days ago it started freezing randomly. It seemed to be just the screen as I could see from my modem that my internet was still active, and when I pressed "Caps Lock" etc the appropriate light changed. I was unable to do anything though, apart from hit "reset". Then, yesterday, W7 decided to suddenly stop working. I can get it to "Windows Starting" but the after that I just get a black screen, with no kind of keyboard activity.
All that I've done recently is uninstall the MS audio driver and try to replace it with latest Realtek (R214) drivers, and also connect the 2 x USB 2.0 ports from my case to my motherboard (I've never connected them up before as I've never needed them). By the way I'm currently, and reluctantly, back on XP and all seems to be running okay - audio and case USB 2.0 ports included.
I tried all the StartUp options that I could see: "Safe Mode" "Repair" etc but I always get the same result - black screen with no option but a hard reset.
After checking the "ntbtlog.txt" file created I noticed a large number of items "Did Not Load..."

Apart from having no audio, I had no real problems with W7 prior to this. If it can be helped I'd rather fix W7 than install it again, purely because I don't want to lose all my apps/progs and settings.

If anyone could help explain why this may have happened or, even better, help rectify the proble... Read more

After several attempts at trying different driver versions, no drivers seem to load now.

These drivers are for a Prolific PL2303 USB to RS232 converter - although I did not buy the device from that company. The drivers used to install easily and I actually had one that partially worked.

At one point, I went to the Windows/System32 and manually deleted all the files and "packages" for those drivers. This likely screwed everything up and I don't know how to recover. I have the option of doing a full system recovery, but it will take days of work to arrive back at the current configuration.

After several attempts to install and uninstall all these drivers again, nothing seems to work. When I plug in the device, Vista looks for the driver in Windows Update and of course finds none. In Device Manager (DM), the annotation for the Port is Unknown device. When I try to manually install the driver through the DM, it fails. The code is sometimes 1 and other times 19.

System Info says I'm running Vista Home Premiun X86-based PC, but the sticker on the laptop says Athlon 64 X2 dual-core (Acer Aspire 4530).

Any fixes?

Hi there
WHY MS do you have to make Enable protected mode an all or nothing setting

I have a Media server that needs to open 127.0.0.1:9000 but this fails unless I turn OFF enable protected mode
All I need is for this site (local host at 127.0.0.1) to be an exception.

Anybody know if this is possible to do. (IE11 in Windows 8.1)

The program is actually Logitech Media server -- works fine normally until IE11 had this thing about Protected mode.

Before I found the trick I did all sorts of things like disabling IPV6 (registry entry needed) etc to no avail --kept getting couldn't access the site !!! (localhost !!!!).

If you really need to disable ipv6 in Windows 8 / 8.1 then do it this way

Techunboxed: How to Disable IPv6 in Windows 8

I've reset the system back to enabling ipv6 as well and switching off compatibility view for that site.

Answer:IE11 and Enable Protected mode I need OFF for 1 Site

Have you tried the Trusted Sites zone for this? Enable Protected Mode can be independently set for each of the 4 zones.

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

This is NOT a big problem and I ask it more out of curiosity than anything else. Back in the days of DOS, I was considered quite a computer expert but now I don't understand how ANYTHING works!

My partner and I share an office. We have identical computers, both using XP, linked by a LAN. We even have almost identical Samsung LCD monitors (mine is a 19" widescreen; hers a 17" regular)

This morning, she went to dailysource.org and the site looked awful (the first column is stretched all the way to the left margin of the screen, huge gaps between words, etc.). She is using IE6. She closed the browser, cleared her cache, refreshed the screen but nothing made any difference.

Although I normally use FireFox, I launched my IE6 and the site looked correct (as it did in FF). We then made sure we had the exact same IE6 settings (security, advanced, plugins, etc). Yet the site still looks different on her computer!

Other than browser settings, what can affect the way a site loads?

Inquiring minds want to know!?

For last two days, no site except Facebook loads on my Laptop. I have Windows 7 (64 bit). I use chrome. All of a sudden, to my dismay, I found that Chrome was waiting for the Google site. I tried, twitter and found the same problem. I tried Facebook and it loaded. I did the same thing with IE but that also kept on waiting and then showing that the webpage did not load and suggesting the Reload.

I found the entries of google, micrisoft etc under the untrusted certificates, and removed those from there. In fact, google and certain others were listed as fraudulent. Even after removing these entries, nothing except Facebook loads.

Please help.

Answer:No site except Facebook loads

Try (through Internet Explorer)

Click Tools>InternetOptions>AdvancedTab>Reset>(TickPersonalSettings)>Reset

Then restart IE and test

Might be worth trying to ping a website through CMD | Start>CMD(InSearchBox)>ping google.com

I've been visiting a website for a year or so, and all of a sudden, a month ago, the site started to have a ridiculously long load time. Any other website I visit is normal and fast, just this one is slow. When I ping the site, the numbers come back normal. Other computers on my LAN have the same issue with the same site. I've asked other people who visit the site daily and they all say they have had no problems at all. The slowness is present at all hours, so it's not related to site traffic.
 

Answer:Slow loads, one site only.

Since all of you have the same issue with the same site, it's obviously something common.

First step would be to connect directly to your broadband modem with one computer and see if this is outside your network or perhaps some oddball issue with the router.

Please also post a TRACERT to the specific site in question.
