Sites not working in IE but work in Chrome and FF?

Recommended Posts

neufuse    3,173

Anyone else see this when going to this site? https://www.firstene...o?state_code=PA

when I go there in IE9 it comes back with a "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" error

go to the same site in Chrome... it goes fine..

I am starting to get this problem more and more with sites... right now I can't get to first energy's site, my banks website and there where a couple others when using IE but no problem at all with other browsers...

I am seeing this same problem at work and at home, so its not just a one system issue... even with a clean install of windows 7 and upgrading to IE9 this error happens...

are they doing something to make IE users switch or whats going on here? this is happening on HTTP and HTTPS sites... first energy's child company Penelec's site does the same thing http://www.penelec.com/

work and home are not the same network, or even the same ISP... so that kind of takes that idea out of the loop :(

as much as I hate the thing, I tried it in Tor to get an IP somewhere else and the sites work *scratching head*

Open up Options > Connections. Click "Lan Settings". Make sure the box for proxy settings isn't checked.

EDIT: Multiple computers -- sorry, didn't read properly.

Both of those sites you list in your first post work just fine using IE9 from my box.

I would fire up a sniffer to see what is going on to be honest. I have to run, but can talk a look at site from work to see if sending anything funky like redirects or anything that might be causing you grief.

I would second a sniffer. It could be a routing issue....I was having a remote site that couldn't access a specific website, it turns out a routing rule in my firewall was preventing it....but it was very odd that it was just 1 website and the rule has absolutely nothing to do with that website, technically they shouldn't have been able to access anything on the web. Very strange things happen to me.

Ok - I was able to recreate your problem here at work.

That first link does not work with IE through the work proxy, get can not display no other error. On firefox I get a SSL error

I have some real work to do, but when I get a chance will look into this deeper.

But you say your not using a proxy at all? At any location? My problem seems to be with firefox not likely the ssl that the proxy is handing out, etc. Very interesting problem, but I have an actual work issue I have to fix first ;)

I take that back - its working, I had just copied the url wrong -- its working fine here from work as well with IE, through a proxy

If you hit with http and not https you get redirect to https, this might be causing you the problem?

HTTP/1.1 302 Found

I honestly don't know what was up, it is working fine again for me in IE9 now... I think they where tinkering with TLS on their end, because sometimes the site responded as TLS1.1 and now its responding with TLS1.0 but that is just a guess, I can't test it now that it's working fine... so not sure if that was the reason or not

I can't get that site to load here on IE9 either.

Wait, there we go!

Found the problem : Turn TLS 1.2 off in IE9's advanced options.

not a dumb comment like that, thats for sure... I've had my fare share of stupid issues with Chrome and FF... to justify something as "its IE therefore..." is just dumb
