When I open Sage in IE9, I lose some functionality. Shift-Enter does not evaluate, and "command( + Tab" does not open an options menu. There are probably more problems I haven't seen.
Is there a way to get full Sage functionality in IE9?Wed, 24 Aug 2011 04:33:23 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/Comment by Brad Burkman for <p>I'm using Sage in the high-school second-year Algebra course I teach, and many of my students use Internet Explorer 9. </p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21303#post-id-21303Also in IE9, I just discovered, the "Sign Out" link isn't working.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21314#post-id-21314This isn't a good answer, but one way is to give more bug reports like this! Unfortunately (?), few of our developers use Windows, so sometimes things are not tested as much there. IE also really does javascript differently than standards, which makes it difficult to predict what will happen.Wed, 24 Aug 2011 07:13:17 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21314#post-id-21314Comment by Brad Burkman for <p>I'm using Sage in the high-school second-year Algebra course I teach, and many of my students use Internet Explorer 9. </p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21304#post-id-21304@niles: As I understand compatibility view, the option only comes if IE determines the format is incompatible. The compatibility icon doesn't appear when I work in Sage, so IE9 doesn't think it's incompatible and doesn't give me the option to switch it.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21313#post-id-21313Does turning "compatibility view" on (or off) help?Wed, 24 Aug 2011 09:56:31 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?comment=21313#post-id-21313Answer by Rob Steaples for <p>I'm using Sage in the high-school second-year Algebra course I teach, and many of my students use Internet Explorer 9. </p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/8284/ie9-loss-of-sage-functionality/?answer=13779#post-id-13779You can force IE9 into compatibility mode by pressing F12 to raise the developer tools. On the title bar of the developer tools is an entry for browser mode, whcih will likely say IE9. Click it and change it to IE9 Compat View. This fixed my Shift-Enter and Rename issues.
