Compatibility Issues with IE 8 and IE 9

Some websites may not behave as expected when using Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8 or Internet Explorer 9. This problem does not occur in earlier versions of Internet Explorer, and the affected websites continue to be displayed correctly and to work correctly in Windows Internet Explorer 7.

For example, you may experience any of the following symptoms in IE 8 or IE 9:

  • Menus, images, or text are in the wrong positions on some websites.

  • Some website features do not work.

  • You receive script error messages on some websites.

  • Internet Explorer stops working on some websites.

IE 8 and IE 9 include a Compatibility View feature that displays websites that were created for older browser versions such as IE 7. You can enable Compatibility View in Internet Explorer or on the Web server.

To enable Compatibility View for specific websites that are not displayed correctly or that are not working correctly, follow these steps:

  1. Open the website that is not displaying correctly or that does not work correctly in IE 8 or in IE 9.
  2. Click the Compatibility View button that is located directly to the right side of the address bar next to the Refresh button.
NOTE: When you use this method to fix a website, Internet Explorer saves your Compatibility View setting for that website. Every time that you visit that site, Compatibility View will be used.

For more information on Compatibility View and how to adjust these settings, please visit Microsoft's official support page located here.
