I just resolved a really strange issue with the way my application loads in Internet Explorer 11 when compatibility mode is not on. It was pointed out by a user and causes behavior such as a "cryptic" string being appended to our site url's and some pages not loading but instead giving a "bad request (invalid url)" error.
Here's a sample of the URL when compatibility is not on:
and when it's on:
Could anyone explain to me what is going on here? And better yet,how to fix it so the site loads correctly in IE 11 w/o compatibility turned on. As a side note, our site uses Telerik Controls. Not sure if the two are related at all but when compatibility is off many of the controls won't load.
