Internet Explorer 9 displays no shading on web pages

Hello,

I have an interesting issue where I have done a comparision between IE8 and IE9 on the same web pages.

Under IE8 there is shading present on the queried pages, under IE9 on a computer right next to the machine with IE8, there is no shading.

Is this an option under IE9 that needs to be set, or is it a compatibility issue? Please note that I have attempted ot view the page with issues in compatibility mode under IE9.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

It would appear that IE 9 doesn't allow that shading,

Check this link out and and see if it clears up the query for you

Thanks Dave,

I have looked at the link that has been provided (thank you) and it relates to not being able to see pictures in IE 6, 7 and 8, not shading issues under IE9.

I suspect that with IE9 there has been an upgrade of some component that addresses shading in a different method and the previous methods are no longer supported. Either that or the shading code makes a call to a now blocked (for security reasons - was there ever a code vulnerablility within browser shading coding?) control under IE9.

Thanks for your contribution, but I was hoping for a more specific reference to a supporting article for our theories.

Sorry about that I thought I saw a IE9 fix there as well. I found a similar article about the IE9, can you give it a try and let me know

Disable the GPU rendering and use software rendering (in the advanced internet settings) and then restart IE9.

Thanks for the follow up coment Dave, I will give your suggestion a go.

I have found the same shading issue with Firefox when installed on the machine - so the situation is not isolated.

Will let you know how I get on.

Thanks again

I can't believe that the shading problem is related to both browser options. i suspect the problem is perhaps related to something else maybe perhaps a display driver issue.

Can we confirm this but rolling back yo IE8 on the your machine and checking it the pages load properly?

Thanks for the advice Dave, since initially ocurring, it seems now to be rectifying itself. I have not had the opportunity to roll back to IE8, but things seem to be improving with shading on web pages.

I can only assume at this point that maybe a display driver update has come through (I agree with your assessment of a driver issue). I would love to spend the extra time on this to isolate it to the specific cause, but due to it not being an issue any more... as the boss says - if it works - move onto the next issue....

Thanks again Dave
