I get an error message from a website indicating I need to be on ie8 or above. I am on ie9 when I refresh the screen it works ok. I have gone to F12 and selected browser modes and internet explorer 9 is selected and not internet explorer 9 compatability view. Is this a website issue or my browser issue?

Sounds like a web site issue...

Of course, you can try using compatibility mode & see if it gets cleared up; if so you can add that site to your compatibility view list...

But it really sounds like whoever coded that site does not properly detect the browser version...

Perhaps you could post the web site URL here so others can comment on what they experience as well to further diagnose this issue!
