ASP.NET page not working in Internet Explorer 10

Posted on 2014-10-08
Last Modified: 2014-12-30
I have an site that works just fine in Firefox and Chrome, but when I attempt to login and use the same site using Internet Explorer 10, I have problems....BIG problems.  The problems can be described as the following:

The following Steps Were Used to Test From Internet Explorer
1. I go to the landing page and all the menus, images and links were fine
2. I go to the login screen and all of the text boxes, menus, images and links were just fine
3. I login to the site with an account that I am using to test the site
4. After I login to the site, all of the CSS and HTML is displayed, but nothing works.  It reacts like an image, not a web page.  It's visible to the naked eye and displays fine, but nothing is clickable, nothing is functional.

If I were to login from FireFox and Chrome, everything works just fine.

Something that I would like to point out is that I have a certificate issue, so I was thinking that could be the reason why it is not responding to any actions when I login with Internet Explorer.  What do you guys think?

One problem might there is some sort of overlay over the page that is obscuring the code behind it.

Are you displaying a popup or similar on the page - might be a javascript function that is failing to remove the overlay which is transparent and preventing clicks from reaching the elements behind.

I can't remember with IE10 do you have the Inspect Element option to see what the element is that is covering the page?

I assume there is no link you can provide to this page?

Yes, there is an overlay that pops up when you press one of the image buttons but it's not there upon page load.

As requested by JulianH, please post a sample page if you can not provide full page.
In IE, you can use developer tools (Press F12) when you are on the page to examine if all CSS/JS and HTML is being rendered as you expected.

Hello everyone, I will post a sample of the code in a few hours.  If I am able to, I will be able to post a live copy of the development site.  Thanks!

Also, be aware that there is an issue with supporting IE10 and IE11 due to bug in the browser definition files for .NET 2.0/4.0 as described here.
Note: This should be patched by now fi you use/have the latest version of  .NET 4.5, it is only a problem for old servers.
