GeneralIE quirk with Compatibility View settings Pinmemberkmoorevs17-May-14 10:45 
Apparently, since at least version 10, IE refuses to keep any manually added websites in the Compatibility View list if the option to 'Delete Browsing history on exit' is turned on. Confused | :confused:
After an update to IE 11, one of the web applications used at my Saturday job refused to work correctly in 'Edge' mode. Adding the website to the Compatibility View list solved the problem. If, for whatever reason, the browser was closed and reopened, the web application would again fail, due to the previously added website mysteriously dissappearing from the CV list. For a week they have been on chats and remotes with 3 different technicians from the website purveyor to get it sorted out. The transcripts are in front of me now and it seems they were only interested in closing the ticket...explain that their application only works under IE 10 or less...nope Chrome won't work, neither will Firefox...we tried them all. There is a rewrite for the application scheduled, but it won't be available until next year. They screw with some of the IE advanced settings, re-add the website to the CV and all is well. Case/ticket resolved, 'see, it works'. The next time the application was restarted, the CV setting was gone. OMG | :OMG: For a week, they have had to manually add the website into the CV each and every time to use the application. The culprit was the 'Delete Browsing History on exit' setting.
 
I understand how the connection between the two could be missed the first time, but three support techs completely missed the solution even when the customer explained the symptoms quite clearly. I don't understand why MS decided this was the way to do it, and I don't understand why someone would need to delete the browser cache every time it closed, but that's not the point. I should be able to do both. Better yet, I should expect that a company selling monthly subscriptions for a 'state of the art' web based service should be able to correct some silly browser display problems that keep it from working correctly in any newer common browsers. It's not rocket science guys!
