QuickFix: IE8 hangup opening intranet pages

April 11, 2011 at 16:53 (Windows) (, , , , , )

Something that i always hate is when there is no update and a product stop’s working so i cannot do my work anymore.

In this case i (am forced to) use Internet Explorer to open up several intranet pages that allowed me to do my administration work.

The problem sums like this:

  • Google, and everything else on “the internet” works seemless
  • opening something internal just hang up IE8 for a couple of minutes and then just stop loading without an error
  • Same in FireFox with IETab installed
  • same in IE 7 + IE 8 64 bit and 32 bit

The solution is as easy as stupid:

In “Internet Options”  -> “Security” the “Local Intranet” is set up with disabled “Protected Mode”.
Enabling it fixed
the Problem instantly for IE8, IE7 and Firefox with IETab.
