    IE 11 No-Longer allows me to log in to the Lounge!

    As of Saturday, for no apparent reason IE 11 No-Longer allows me to log in to the Lounge. As soon as I enter the URL and click, IE11 freezes. I am forced to use Edge.

    (My Windows 10 Pro is fully up-to-date, and I have not changed any settings for several months)

    (I use IE11 because my passwords are controlled by Norton Identity Safe which is not (yet) accepted by Edge)

    Have you tried running IE with add-ons disabled?

    Or, access Windows Secrets in Compatibility Mode:

    Go to Tools / Compatibility View settings.
    Add windowssecrets.com to the Compatibility View list.

    I'm replying from within IE11 on Win10, doesn't seem to be a problem with log-in. There is a display issue in that if I increase the size of readable text the yellow bar at the top starts over-printing itself onto 2 lines. That's true in IE11 and FF45.

    Added: the same above applies to SeaMonkey.

    Solved

    Well, after fiddling with Compatibility and add-ons, I finally "reset" IE11 and then re-enabled all my add-ons and pop-up blocker, and all is now back to normal. (Weird!)

    Solved!
