Sometimes IE Doesn't Submit

Posted on 2014-01-10

Hello Experts,

I've noticed that sometimes IE11 does not submit a form, and to correct the issue I need to Ctrl+F5.

Further, I notice when I view source, some of the code of the <form> tag is cut off until I Ctrl+F5.  This is not the case in FireFox

I have all IE Updates

Any ideas?

Some sites arent IE11 prove.
Press F12 and set the browser to eg. IE9 mode and things will perform better.

In IE11 scroll to the bottom icon, you will see it. It is called emulation mode.

And when in Emulation Mode click the dropdown arrow next to Document Mode.  The numbers represent the versions of IE.
And if clicking F12 does not work, click the gear at the top right of the IE screen and choose F12 Developer Tools.

The issue persists, but should I be changing document mode or user agent?

First of all, did you try changing Document Mode?
I think you have to tell us whether changing the User String Agent helps your problem.
Here is a discussion of the Emulation Mode and then User String Agent.

I have tried all 3 scenarios:

user agent: 9; Document Mode 9

user agent 9; Document mode Default

user agent Default; Document mode 9

The problem persists

As explained originally, when viewing the source sometime the html code is cut. For example:

<form action="page.asp" method="post">

Open in new window

but sometimes, especially before Ctrl+F5, the above code looks like this:

<form actiage.asp" method="post">

Open in new window

where on="p is obviously cut off.

I am almost tempted to reformat, but I am hoping for a quick fix. If there any way I can remove IE and re-install, or any other suggestions?

Thank you

To uninstall 11 goto control panel, programs and there is the option show installed updates.
Here you look for explorer and you can remove the update.
Delete IE11
