Neowinians! I have upgraded my browser to the latest version , IE 11. My system is up to date, my Java/Flash components are latest, my browser  cache was cleaned within the browser and with CCleaner. My Windows (7) is clean and sleek, no errors, no BSODs and no messy viral code around.

 

However, it seems I cannot post images on forums anymore, my keyboard runs wild even when I write this post.

I have tried using the built-in image link viewer from this forum and it just blocks out my page, leaving it shadowed.

Forums wich are similar to what Neowin is using are crashing my browser.

The Image Properties box appears, I insert the picture URL and click "OK" - nothing happens, page shadowed and beyond recovery.

What should I do? Anyone having similar issues out there? Thanks in advance!

 

 

Windows 7, IE 11 , stronk PC.

Known issues. Only way around it is possibly forcing IE into compatibility mode to see if that'd work, or just using another browser.

Looks like compatibility mode isn't helping at all and I hate switching to another browser. I like how MSE integrates in IE, how Internet Explorer integrates in Windows. Perhaps there will be a fix in the future?

I'm annoyed by the lack of IE11 support. It's not like the browser wasn't in testing for a while.

 

RT users are out of luck and I'm not changing to Chrome on my Venue 8 Pro, because honestly, the Metro Chrome interface stinks.

Isn't an issue with IE 11, at least not for me. I used IE 11 on Win 7 and now using it on Win 8, and have never experienced any problems.

Anyways, hopefully you get it straightened out.

The issues stem from IPB not being compatible.

That with the fact that IE11 has trouble rendering this site quickly.

It's time this issue is fixed, last month, 1 out of every 10 web visitors used Internet Explorer 11, that's only going to grow, probably to 1 out of every 5 or 4

Tell Invision Power Services, it's their code that's borked.

Not forgetting the blurry font renderings in IE..........I went back to Chrome as a result
