    Thanks, that OpenDNS solved part of my problem...
    So the "can't be displayed" gone? That's very interesting. Let's see if there will be more reports about changing DNS fixing connection problems.

    JavaScript websites will not work properly
    JavaScript works fine here, no addon needed. Dealing with java programs is another matter, needs the Java download\install (for the few sites needing it (banking here), tested Java 7.45, no problems using IE11).

    Check the Security settings, if Internet zone set to 'High' it will disable javascript. In case some experimenting has been going on and settings changed here and there, before doing anything else am recommending to reset IE to default (Internet Options > Advanced > Reset) and take it from there.

    All comments here relate to desktop IE, am not using the (cr)app.

    edit: am currently using this DNS Comodo Secure DNS, Managed DNS Service, Secure DNS Provider, works fine and maybe provides some additional security.

    Look at the addons and same with the other one.
    Some websites asking me what to do with json files (file type)
    so I am guessing it has to do with this?

    Other problem is that JAVA is incompatible with IE 11
    AFAIK (and by practical experience) java & javascript are both very IE11 compatible. It's only the extra addons (socalled 'Helpers') which are not compatible (rather not allowed, one can get them enabled by changing settings in IE security, see snip from Windows 8.1\IE11), but they are not needed for java to run, and javascript don't need them either. So, am believing the SSV \ 2 SSV plugins are in no way related to your problem, but cannot give any more hints. Google these 'helpers' for additional info.


    Am still interested in reports if anyone does test an alternate DNS if experiencing problems accessing websites with IE11.

    I wonder what security, cause I set them all to minimal and its still the same problem.
    I even can't get rid of the Security message, that Java applet will not be run.. and at the bottom I need to select "Alow once"

    After looking at how IE11 behaved, went to network properties and changed the IPv4 DNS from automatic to using Internet Security or DNS Service for your Business or Home - OpenDNS. That made the difference. Problems vanished, stock IE11 settings. Even managed to post this!

    Maybe IE11 got some 'improvements' that some DNS servers cannot respond to? For those with the 'This page can't be displayed' problems (and any other browser working fine), worth trying an alternate DNS. Good luck.
    Hi,
    For the dummies out there can you give a more details as to the things to type into the the different areas.

    How about clicking the LINK and you will SEE what you need to type.... Or do you need a book for how to click a link as well?

    Options > Advanced > uncheck 'Enable Enhanced Protection Mode'. This will make it possible to enable the socalled SSV helpers, but I doubt these will have any effect regarding your java problems, but maybe worth trying this as part of an elimination method.
