Page display issues in IE 8

Richard Courtenay 4 years ago • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 6

I've attached two screen shots of how Identity Broker 5.0.1 is rendered in IE8, which according to the documentation is supported (IE8+). I've had access to two systems with IE8, both of which exhibit these symptoms. The first being a Windows Server 2008 system and the other a clean install of Windows 7 that I made in Azure specifically to see if this issue was reproducible.

As can be seen below, quirks mode is functional but misformed. In standards mode much of the page is obscured by the upper pane, including most of the controls associated with the connectors or adapters pages.

Browser Mode: IE 8, Document Mode: Internet Explorer 8 Standards

Browser Mode: IE 8, Document Mode: Quirks

In both cases Identity Broker is running on the embedded web server. Screenshots taken with 8.0.7601.17514 of IE.

I can also reproduce the scenario in IE 11 by setting the Developer Tools display mode to emulate IE8.

Thanks Richard Courtenay, I'll have to check with our regression tests to see whether this was tested. I believe I have found a solution for this, but are you able to continue for now using quirks mode?

There are other quirks beyond the header. For example the Edit button on the Certificate Attributes Setting page (accessible from the settings page) is non responsive and prevents the certificate search criteria being built using the UI.

Hi Adam, yeah it's not going to hold me up with anything. It's a work around, but I have a another dev box with IE11 that I can configure things in and migrate the config over.

Hi Kevin Lin,

Could you please check IdB in IE8 (or IE8 compatibility mode)? Once reproduced, have a look at getting repond.js in alongside Bootstrap like this:

    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
      <script src="respond.min.js"></script>
