    Internet Explorer 11 Fails To Load In "Ten Forums"


    I discovered that Internet Explorer 11 will not load the "Ten Forums" site until you go through a captcha process to confirm you are human and not a machine.
    IE11 still works fine in "XP Forums" and "Vista Forums" and "Seven Forums", but not in "Ten Forums".
    If I switch to Mozilla Firefox 87.0, "Ten Forums" loads fine.
    Am I correct in assuming these sites are dropping support for IE11?

    I often use IE11 to visit TenForums but don't need to go through any captcha process.

    Support for IE11 is already partial. The only concrete example I can think of off the top of my head is that posted UTube videos do not play.

    I also use Firefox including using it for TenForums sometimes.

    As Try3 says, IE11 does not support playing embedded YouTube videos on Ten Forums. It's been that way for a few years now, that was the final straw for me and marks the time when I stopped using IE11. Now I mostly use Firefox.

    Just to check, I ran up IE11 and signed in to Ten Forums. At no point did I see any Captcha challenge.

    Kinda tongue-in-cheek but I'm not having any problem with Utube at UTUBE - UTube.com™ - The #1 site on the Internet in our industry but then it is a different firm.

    I discovered the problem occurs with Internet Explorer 11 only in Windows 7 and not in Windows 10.
    Both operating systems are up to date to April 2021, so it's not an issue with Windows 7 being out of date.
    For now, I'll use Mozilla Firefox 87 when in Windows 7 and use Internet Explorer 11 when in Windows 10.

    That's odd. I've just tried TenForums in IE11 on a Win7 machine and didn't get any Captcha there either...

    Clear all your cookies and temporary internet files. If that doesn't help, consider (as a last resort) resetting IE.
