Error when accessing SharePoint externally via Internet Explorer with URL in Local Intranet Zone Internet Explorer

After a migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint 2016, users accessing SharePoint externally using Internet Explorer receive the error;

The connection to the website was reset.

I have isolated it to having the URL “” added to the “Local Intranet” Zone in Internet Explorer.

Users that are internal/VPN or that are using Chrome, are not impacted.

If I remove our SharePoint from the Local Intranet zone, we lose our Single Sign on and everybody in the agency has the enter their credentials every time to access SharePoint.

I confirmed that we are not having this issue in our 2013 environment.

I have an internal web service for our I.T. tech support. Today I had couple of users who said when they click on the internal link and they get redirected to a site and it doesn't let them go back to the internal service.

I have scanned this PCs multiple times with our AVG antivirus, we have also downloaded Malware bytes and not luck. Have any of you had this issue ? do you have any ideas how I can remove this redirect form these client computers?

Here is a full url for the redirect -

Dear all,

I have a Macbook Pro configured in my company with a parallel desktop installed. Windows 10 Enterprise version 1803 is installed and updated.
The issue is that I am not able to configure o365 email on the outlook application as you can see in the below screenshots. Even, I am not able to login through the Internet explore.
I tried ipconfig /flushdns , reset IE settings, cleaned cookies, history and everything then change the DNS to Last thing I did is installed MalwareBytes and it catches some cookies and other stuff.
 Is there anything else I can do please?
I am having problems with Microsoft CRM crashing when my user does an activity. I am trying to capture her movements so that I can show Microsoft the issue. I found that inside the IE you can go into the F12 >> Network and track user movements. Would this work and would this be the most effective method?
Windows 7, IE11, Certificate error, The security certificate has expired or is not yet valid. system time and time zone are correct, activated windows, fully updated. checked with and without antivirus. the same issue comes even after changing HDD and reinstalled new windows.
I've set PhantomPDF as the program for .pdf, and as the default for all program types it can open, yet when I open a pdf in Internet Explorer it opens using Adobe. Why?

I am trying to turn off IE Enhanced security for non admin users via GPO for a Citrix server but i cant seem to get it to work, I have tried the follow registry settings and can see them getting applied via group policy but IE enhanced security is still enabled.

I have also turned it off manually through server manager but IE still stays it is turned on.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A7-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}\IsInstalled set to zero

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{A509B1A8-37EF-4b3f-8CFC-4F3A74704073}\IsInstalled set to zero

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\IEHarden DWORD 0

A work around I thought of was to add sites to Trusted Sites, I have also tried this via group policy. I can see the GPO getting applied but the Trusted sites list in IE is blank.

Has anyone else had this issue ?
Hi, I cannot get IE11 to show my secondary homepage when launching the web browser. I am working in a domain environment with Windows 10 Enterprise.
I have applied my IE policies via GPP but cannot get the second tab to show. Internet Options shows my second homepage listed, but he only manner that IE displays my secondary home page is when I click on the home button.

'Disable changing secondary homepage settings' is also set via GP. I have this working in Chrome and Edge, but running out of options with setting this up with IE.
Registry also reflects correct URL for the secondary home page. Also tested setting up via Policies and Preferences with no luck.

Require to uncheck the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View

We need the “Display intranet site in Compatibility View” to be always checked for other sites so can’t uncheck this feature.
Thus, Is there any other workaround ways to exclude only this site just to uncheck the display intranet sites in compatibility view and not affected other sites  


I have a Public/Kiosk mode (auto log in account) Windows 10 Computer using Internet Explorer 11 as the default browser (Edge is not "certified" with our Medical Web Apps).

When any user tries to go to the "system" keeps trying to use the auto log in account credentials instead of giving the Kiosk User the ability to enter their own credentials to check email.

I would also like to make it possible that the users cannot "save" their own credentials on this workstation once we have them actually entering their own OWA log in data.

We have a VMware Horizon View 6.2 environment with Windows 7 Pro.  We are having issues where Captcha windows do not show up consistently on sites while using IE 11.  Sometimes they aren't there, you can go to another site or two and go back and then it shows up.
is anyone aware of a setting within MS Internet Explorer 11 that would cause the display of a weather widget (accuweather) to display "Farenheit" despite the generated code specifically stating "Celsius"?  here's a portion of the code:

   <div id="awcc1528741950009"
   <script type="text/javascript" src="">

as you can see, dataunit="c" and i've experimented with various data-language options ("en-us", "en-gb")...  the browser still displays it in Farenheit.

we've checked local PC regional settings, everything is set to English-Canada.
my users are in Canada so Celsius is the measurement unit we use.

out of 8 sites, 1 site does see "Celsius" on all their IE browsers, but we've been unable to determine why or find the setting that's different.

any ideas?
Hello everybody.

I'm dealing with a process of grasping datas from the web and copying them in an Excel sheet: it is a loop that inserts a code in a field for thousands of times, and then it imports the results.
It works quite well, processing without errors for hours.

for each cell in range xxx

IE.document.getElementById("Code").Value = cell

                With IE
                    Do While .Busy: DoEvents: Loop    'Attesa not busy
                    Do While .readystate <> 4: DoEvents: Loop 'Attesa documento
                End With

                myStart = Timer
                    If Timer > myStart + 1 Or Timer < myStart Then Exit Do

                Application.Wait (Now + TimeValue("0:00:20")) 

Dim tables, table, trs, tr, tds, td, R, c
Set tables = IE.document.getElementsByTagName("table")
For R = 0 To tables.Length - 1
Next R
Set table = IE.document.getElementsByTagName("table")(3)
Set trs = table.getElementsByTagName("tr")

For R = 0 To trs.Length - 1
Set tds = trs(R).getElementsByTagName("td")
If tds.Length = 0 Then Set tds = trs(R).getElementsByTagName("th")
For c = 0 To tds.Length - 1
ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Output").Range("A1").Offset(R, c).Value = tds(c).innerText
Next c
Next R


IE.document.getElementById("reset").Click   'reset search field

next cell

Open in new window

Unfortunately, sometimes an error occours:

"Runtime Error 91: Object variable or with block variable not set"
in the line

ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Output").Range("A1").Offset(R, c).Value = tds(c).innerText

Open in new window

Now, I think it could be a timing problem (maybe sometimes the page is not fully loaded).
Actually, at the beginning of the project I have fixed the wait, maybe in a messy way, but it is quite efficient.

I don't know if it is better to fix again the wait (touching a part of the code the works quite well), or to insert an instruction that could allow the cycle going on despite the error (perhaps On Error Resume Next ?).

I use IE9 and XLS 2007.

Thank you in advance for your support.

I have enabled the "Keep favorites in sync between Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge" Group policy.

I have disabled the "Prevent changes to Favorites on Microsoft Edge"

I’ve checked the reg key is there indicating this is enabled.

It’s not working though, favourites are in IE but opening edge I just get the ‘import favs’ box, which is greyed out, as it controlled by the organisation. Nothing Syncs.

Is there more to it? What could stop that working?
We have several users who have reported that when attempting to connect to our VPN using Palo Alto's GlobalProtect, they get a white screen that only says "PageoK" in their browser when they try to browse to one of our internal-only web applications.   This application runs on an internal Apache server on SLES - nothing in the cloud.    The index page is a basically just a meta refresh to the main application page.    If the user who receives "Pageok" clears their browser cache, the web app works fine.    What strikes me odd is that users have seen this exact error in both IE and Firefox.    We haven't yet been able to reproduce it, but the only guess I have is that possibly users are launching their browser to the website before GlobalProtect has finished connecting, but I can't say for sure.

The thing I really need to understand is, where does the "Pageok" come from?   What would it likely be receiving from a web server in order to send that message to the client?    I figure the client MUST be getting some sort of response from a web server for it to provide that message above others.  

As far as I know, DNS is good here (certainly at least for that website) and this only became a problem recently.   I could just use more insight on exactly what "Pageok" really means in technical terms in order to understand and possibly report the problem.  

EDIT:  From reading things online, I'm wondering if "Pageok" is a Wordpress error specifically.   Does anyone know if …
I am maintaining an old, old classic ASP site - there is a form which includes the following tag around the "submit" image:

<a href="javascript:ValidateMakeForm();" onMouseOver="msover(1); return true" onMouseOut="msout(1)">

The function is defined on the page like below - basically sets the form action and submits the form.

<script language="javascript">
function ValidateMakeForm()
	if (document.forms['searchmake'].category_id.selectedIndex == 0)
		alert("You must select a make.");
	document.forms['searchmake'].action = document.forms['searchmake'].category_id.value;

Open in new window

IE 11 is throwing an error 'ValidateMakeForm' is undefined.   Everything works in Chrome, Firefox and Edge and even in IE 11 when viewed in Compatibility Mode.
I have a lightning component on the click of that at UI level, which my user  operates in chrome.Can I redirect from  Chrome to IE(explorer) -instead of a new tab in chrome to New tab in IE- on a click in UI?
I'm having an issue when users print an email from OWA in Citrix (using IE11), they are getting an APPCRASH error.  The job will still print, but then it closes their OWA window and reloads.  It's more of an annoyance, but it's happening to multiple users.
Using IE's F12 Developer Tools I captured some network traffic and exported the capture to Excel.  In the export there's a column titled "Cache read" that only appears in the export.  I've been unable to find any documentation explaining what that column represents.  I'm guessing it's the time the browser spent reading/attempting to read data from cache, but would like to confirm that.

Hi, I'm trying to accomplish the following task, while using PowerShell...

Open a web browser, navigate to, and then prompt for credentials using basic authentication.

We have a use case for this in our environment where we want a .ps1 shortcut on users' desktops and they need to always be prompted for credentials via basic auth. Note: our environment uses ADFS to authenticate to Office365, so there is a redirect after you hit the initial URL.

I've tried something like:

$Browser = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
Start-Process $Browser -Argumentlist "" -Credential (Get-Credential)

But that doesn't operate as desired

Can this be done? Thanks in advance!
When open links from Outlook 2016 Stand alone (Default browser does not matter, have tried IE, Edge, and Chrome). We are receiving the below error. Any Ideas on how to fix? We have reset internet options, replaced the Registry entry with mine, which isn't having this issue, everything we have tried has not fixed it. The only temporary fix we have found is to either shut down IE and outlook, then reopen. or delete cookies and browsing history in IE. Please advise.

"Microsoft Outlook
Something unexpected went wrong with this URL:

Our users are getting the following error while opening a Word doc, in Office 2016, that contains numerous web links via IE and Chrome.

While researching this issue, I see that a recommended fix was detailed in this article but this did not work for me.

Can anyone help?

Thank you!

Aftyer numerous System Blockade during Windows 10 1709 upgrade I had to reinstall Windows 10Pro on a DELL XPS LAbtop. I did this with Dell Hotline.
Of course I saved previously the "User" folder including AppData.
W10 and W10 1709 upgrade went evenlessly (but very very slowly).
I reinstalled also all the softwares without difficulty.
But, but I have troubles with the Favories keys (identifications and passW). Firefox recovered its own keys from the copied AppData. But I did'nt find a way ti do it with EDGE. I re-installed Internet explorer and failed also.
I tried with Netpass, vaultpasswordview, iexplorerpassview, credentialfileview and bulletpassview but they all work with resident data, not data comming from an external HD.
Could anyone help me to find a way to import the identifications keys from  AppData of the old installation.

Thanks for any help
