Internet Explorer 11 Won’t Display Some Pages

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet, Windows 8

Dave from Illinois writes:

My girlfriend and I have gotten new Windows 8.1 tablets for Christmas. We are plugging along learning how to use it. One problem we are having is. Using IE11 when we try to sign on to Yahoo Mail we get back a message stating that there is a setting in IE 11 that will not allow us to display the site requested. This also happens on other sites that require password authentication such as Facebook.  I have downloaded FireFox and I am able to view these sites with it. Do you know what setting needs to be changed in IE 11 to allow viewing of these pages?

You aren’t the only person to report this problem. First, make sure all of your Windows 8.1 updates are up-to-date. That fixed the issue for some people.

Others have found it was coming from the enhanced protection mode in Windows 8.1. Here’s how to disable that feature. Open IE and choose Internet Options.

When the Internet Options window opens, select the advanced Tab.

Scroll down to Security and make sure that Enable Enhanced Protected Mode is not checked.

Then hit OK.  If that doesn’t help the problem you may want to reset Internet Explorer or consider uninstalling and reinstalling IE 11.

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations? deaeeekkgeka

    Same issue, so I went into Internet Options, Advanced, Security, then clicked on Trusted Sites, added the site I was trying to view to “Trusted Site”, but then had to uncheck “require sever verification” for this zone.

    The web page (a catalog) was only http: and IE-11 at the original setting was requiring the site to be https:

    Good luck!
