Windows 2012 Requesting Certificate from CA

My CA server is running Windows Server 2008 R2. I have a Windows 2012 member server that I'm that I'm trying to request a certificate template through web enrollment.

On the Windows 2012 server, I type in the URL of the CA server to bring up the main CA page. I choose Request a certificate and than advanced certificate request. When I click on advanced certificate request, it's suppose to give me the option to Create and submit a request to this CA but instead it goes right to the Submit a certificate request by use a base-64-encoeded CMC or PKCS #10 file page.

I downloaded Firefox and it does the same thing. Is this something new in 2012? How am I'm suppose to Create and Submit a request from the CA server if that option is not available?

Configure SSL certificate for your CA web site and then try to access CA web site over https and check if it works from 2012 server

The CA is Enterprise Root. SSL is already configured for the site. It works well with all other servers but this is the only 2012 server in our domain.

Thanks Mahesh! Adding the CA site to the compatibility view settings resolved the issue. I am now seeing the option to Create and submit a request to this CA.
