IE11 failing to load 1 link on page after 8.1 update

    IE11 failing to load 1 link on page after 8.1 update


    On 8 with IE10 there was no problem.
    I could go to www.charter.net and successfully follow the link to TV Listings
    After upgrading to 8.1 with IE11 there is a small problem. It only shows a spinning wheel and not the listings.

    It does the same on another pc I upgraded to 8.1 from the store.
    If I use Chrome, the TV Listings shows properly.

    Any ideas or solution to fix IE11 without switching to Chrome for one page?

    Thank you.

    In IE11, you should be able to upper right corner to Tools then to Compatibility View settings, just click the Add button then just add that page to the list of pages that require compatibility mode.

    Worked like a custom-made fix.
    Thank you.

    If you can post the link with the problem here I'll see if I can connect.

    For me the page opens fine but shows a spinning loading icon in the middle of the page. Not sure why it's not working for you in this case.

    Yes, that's what it does for me also, the spinning icon. It's supposed to display the TV Schedule where the spinning icon is.
    Below is another page that does not work quite right. I have another laptop running IE9 and Vista. This displays both pages correctly.

    For me, the second I added the URL to compatibility mode for the page you posted it loaded right up, no problems at all.

    It should for certain be working for you as well.

    In fact I'll add a print screen that shows the compatibility mode settings and the page which opened right up for me.

    Well, your solution finally worked, but I had to turn off my ad-blocker 1st. Your screen shot was a perfect display of what my screen looked like, then I noticed the small stop sign icon on the bottom of the screen, I turned it off and the TV schedule appeared. Thanks for your help!

Hi there IE11 seems to have a strange "Feature". When you close a Web site with an active download the whole thing closes and the download disappears -- IE 11 shows no windows open. However press CTRL+J and you'll see the download lists again. If there's no activity press PAUSE and then press...
