IE11 and Sharepoint 2010 Problems

Surprise Surprise(remember 9 & 2003), IE11 is released and it won’t work with SharePoint 2010 regardless of the version (December 19, 2013). The cause is due to the changes in IE11 compatibility mode (MSDN details).

Initial thoughts are to hard code the version from 8 to 9, (<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=8″/>)

in the master page and this alleviates some problems(Infopath Forms now work(previous error was: Critical Error: Object doesn’t support this property or method addeventlistener)) but it creates more as well(Users can’t be added to sites(System.InvalidOperationException: Namespace prefix ‘xsd’ is not defined.).

Based upton my trial and error today I would recommend until MS released a CU, the farm running is a 2010 Enterprise with all standard features and items in use.

Add this javascript to the master page just above the body close tag.

<script language=”javascript”>
/* IE11 Fix for SP2010 */
if (typeof(UserAgentInfo) != ‘undefined’ && !window.addEventListener) {
UserAgentInfo.strBrowser=1; }
</script>
