Why am I having problems with many websites after installing Internet Explorer 9?

There are a lot of website that I am having problems with after installing IE9. I can not log into Netflix and Facebook. Also having issues with Careerbuilder.com and Dice.com. When I use Chrome or Safari, everything works fine. Right after I upgraded to IE9 Netflix was already logged in. A lot of features, like highlighting to add a movie to your queue would not work. I was in the process of building a new computer and when I was done I could not log in to these sites at all. I have tried the compatability setting, but that does not do anything for it. I have not tried every site that I go to yet but, there seems to be an issue with either IE9 or the sites need to be upgraded. I was wondering if anybody else is having issues with IE9 after upgrading or new installs. Also if anybody knows of a fix.

IE9 is a disaster, for a start make sure you're running the 32-bit version.

Otherwise check out this microsoft kb article. Ultimately though I would also recommend downgrading for now.

Yes, there seems to be an issue with either IE9 or those websites, which may need to be upgraded in the near future. In the meantime, I would suggest that you uninstall IE9 and here is a simple way to do it from the command line:

FORFILES /P %WINDIR%\servicing\Packages /M Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-*9.*.mum /c "cmd /c echo Uninstalling package @fname && start /w pkgmgr /up:@fname /norestart"

Thanks ConUladh for the link. I ran IE9 with addons disabled and the sites worked fine. Now I need to figure out what addon or addons is causing these issues with the websites. Thanks again
