  • [Forum] Failed login under windows Internet Explorer 9 IE9

    Hello I hope this is an easy fix. Registered users, including supermods and administrators, can not stay logged into my vBulletin 4.1 when using Internet Explorer version 9. The board prompts the user for name and password, sends the welcome message, "Thank you for logging in username" and the automatic next screen is whatever page you were on, but only the public non-registered view. Attempts to login on no matter what page fail, repeated attempts to login are in an endless loop. This happens with or without the "remember me" checkbox.

    This does not occur with Google Chrome or Firefox. Have not tried IE8 since I offloaded that some time ago and the problem just started. Any ideas?

    p.s. I have discovered that flushing the browsing history, temp files and cookies does not help. However, closing down IE9 and restarting the program does help. A fresh restart allows the user to stay on the vBulletin. However, as soon as the user downloads a file, the user is no longer recognized.

    p.s.p.s. When managing attachments to threads, a popup error appears "undefinedYou do not have permission to perform this action. Please refresh the page and login before trying again." Clicking OK puts me into an endless loop with the same error message. Closing IE9 does not work. Must start the task manager, click "Manage attachments" and END TASK.

    Do you have any third party addons?
    Are you forcing Compatablity Mode to IE9?
    Are you positive you're trying to login to the correct domain? www.domain.com and http://domain.com are two different domains as far as all browsers are concerend.

      Don't know how to do that. If I click on TOOLS / COMPATIBLITY VIEW it will replicate this error. I have no URLs in the compatibility view settings. Should I have anything here?

      I do not use the www prefix anywhere. URL is http://phitausigma.com and http://phitausigma.org Sometimes IE9 will display the IP instead, http://164.107.52.52/vb3/ How do I get vBull to treat these as synonyms? This might be the problem...

        Its showing the IP for me on every link.

        In vBadmin > Settings > Options > Site Name / URL / Contact Details change the IP to the domain name.
