    More IE 11 problems in Windows 8.1


    Hi All,
    This is my first post so please bear with me and if this has been talked about can you direct me to that section.

    I'm having issues with IE11 that I keep getting a message that says "Cannot Display this Page".
    I have read a lot of things about how to fix this but it just keeps reappearing. It is very annoying to say the least as
    I do all the refreshing and resetting as per all the things I have read and it still happens.

    Can anyone tell a more permanent fix (if there is one that is).

    Cheers
    Gary

    Hi Gary,

    Have you tested other browser to make sure it is specifically an IE 11 issue and not just a general internet connectivity issue? If so, please provide any additional testing details so we don't try to "reinvent the wheel" when offering additional things to try. Good luck.

    Hi,
    No I haven't tried any other browsers and up until I upgraded to Windows 8.1 I never had an issue so to go down the path of say Mozilla or Chrome never crossed my mind. Maybe that is the next step.

    Try FF24 because that works perfectly for me.

    Ok will do.
    Just a quick one, never used any other browser other that IE is it easy to pick it up and run with it.

    Not quite sure what you mean specifically but you just install it, select the option to import bookmarks, and you may get prompterd to install flash at some later point in time. Other than that, you have similar IE options to set in the options view:

    Get it here:

    Download Firefox ? Free Web Browser ? Mozilla

    Hope this information has been helpful and good luck to you.

    I keep getting a message that says "Cannot Display this Page"
    Like this picture ? Got a dead IE11 here as well (thought I'd fixed it be disabling and re-enabling IE11, but no luck). Other browsers works perfect.

    Although not using IE for anything important, would like to it work properly, so suggestions welcome (and btw, the usual IE ugly fonts clearly showing up in the snip). No help in compatibility view, cache clearing etc. May work a little later after trying refresh a few times, or rewriting the site name with or without www in front. If not giving the 'cannot display' it opens a bing search result instead of the site.

    Update: after going through the suggested "disable\enable\clear this & that", compatibilty, restart and pray, refresh etc etc finally came to the conclusion to search elsewhere.

    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.

    Thanks, that OpenDNS solved part of my problem...
    Other problem is that JAVA is incompatible with IE 11. so that's a major problem as well. (Plugins are not working)
    so JavaScript websites will not work properly, and it's asking to save .json files

    I'm about to go back to V8.
