The Case of the Mysterious IE9 Browser Conflicts On Active Rain


The Case of the Mysterious IE9 Browser Conflicts Resolved

Last week Bob did a post about the conflicts and compatibility problems encountered when using the new IE9 Browser from Microsoft.

I wanted to repost this in in it's entirety in case anyone missed it.

Many people have upgraded to this new browser and have not been able to post, edit or comment on Active Rain.

This new browser was not compatible now with Active Rain.

Until now!

Bob came up with a solution... See below.....

IE9 




A few weeks ago back in May, there was a post on the problems with Microsoft IE9 and it's compatibility problems here on Active Rain in the "In The Loop" group.

Yes, Yes, I know, "USE Firefox", and I do.

I totally agree with you all.

But for those who are stuck in IE world the latest IE9 upgrade has brought many problems to posting as well as making comments.

Craig Daniels , our own illustrious Tech teacher here and I had been trying to figure out these problems to no avail, at least on my end.

Just today I tried something that did not work in the past and today it miraculously worked.

I wanted to share this with all my Active Rain friends.

Not sure if Active Rain changed some code or what but doing these little bits of changes to your browser settings may fix the problems.

When you first update  IE9 the default browser opens but without some of the familiar options that you may have gotten used to in the past.

The File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help options are not visible.

One of the new sleeker design elements that Microsoft has put into this updated browser.

Desktop


You must first right click into the light blue area of the toolbar and click/check the menu option in order to have this integrated into your browser to be visible.

Or just hover you pointer over the light blue area and click the alt button. The File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, Help should pop up.


Then open your IE9 browser and go to the tools button located up top on the left hand side on your menu bar.
 
Click tools and scroll down to Compatibility view settings.

compatability settings


Type in Active Rain.com address to the Add this website box and hit add.

Then go down and click the "Display intranet sites in Compatibility View"
as well as "Display all Websites in Compatibility View
"



Close out and hit refresh.

Now go to Active Rain and see if it works.

It worked for me.

And apparently it has worked for many other folks as well.

I like it when things work correctly......that's a good thing.

Hope this helped and please let me know if it  works for you.
