Logging on with ADFS via Internet Explorer

We have an instance of ADFS running under Windows Server 2012 and connecting to it works fine as long as we're not using Internet Explorer.  Chrome and Firefox work fine.  We're running Internet Explorer version 8, anyone have any ideas on what could be the cause?

Have you tried using IE 9 or 10 on a test computer, not saying that ADFS does not support it because it does.

From the Appendix.



AD FS creates session-based and persistent cookies that must be stored on client computers to provide sign-in, sign-out, single sign-on (SSO), and other functionality. Therefore, the client browser must be configured to accept cookies. Cookies that are used for authentication are always Secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTPS) session cookies that are written for the originating server. If the client browser is not configured to allow these cookies, AD FS cannot function correctly. Persistent cookies are used to preserve user selection of the claims provider. You can disable them by using a configuration setting in the configuration file for the AD FS sign-in pages.

I would look at this and see if you need to change your settings in IE.
Maybe add this site to trusted sites will be the easiest way to address this.

We had a similar issue.  You have to use IE 9 or above.

Our similar issue was very strange though, as it was with Office 365.  It wouldn't accept Chrome or IE 8 and lower.  We had to use either Firefox or IE 9+.  This was very odd but it has something to do with the way ADFS works when it contacts your local ADFS server.
