Windows 7: F12 different on two machines

F12 different on two machines

Below are examples of what I see when pressing F12 with IE11 on different machines. Both have the same set of updates. The first is on a Sandy Bridge with a i5-2550K, second an i7-3770K. Both are running w7 Ult 64bit.

EDIT: First image is from IE10, my mistake.

Why the difference?

The first image seems to be from IE10...
...you are sure it is IE11 - right?

Yes it is IE10, good eyeballs there.

A change of pace, how can I get IE11 to display a settings console like IE10? I constantly have to change the doc mode because the dark from skin won't display things properly.

I'm not sure that such can be done. I just use the 64bit version of Pale Moon for these forums.

Yea that's one of the reasons I have not returned to ie11,
The other reason no matter what change is made in developer tools in ie11 does not stick if f12 is closed ie11 reverts back to edge mode=Very annoying,
Cheers.

It's funny you mention a different doc mode on a darker theme,
If you notice in ie10 this site already uses a different doc mode than if you use sf classic theme which uses ie7 standards,
A dark theme uses ie9 doc mode/ very interesting change.

Why the change in developer tools,
Touch screen interface.
Developer tools ie11,

Thanks Mike, all the themes seem to work except dark ones. I'd like to touch whoever thought the touch interface up.

Your welcome,
I also would like to get a hold of the buzzard,
It just shows how ie11 is not ready for windows 7 and a Mouse,
I've found many issues with ie11 and mouse usage which are most mouse driver issues but I have a Microsoft mouse
Even if there was a way to change the interface,
Every time you close f12 the setting would not stick,
ie10 as long as you open items or links in the same tab or window the setting stuck/ huge step backwards,
Cheers.

I installed Pale Moon as suggested but there's no way to save selected cookies. I don't like logging it on each visit, and it's a Fire Fox browser, resource hog.

I use Pale Moon for websites where cookies can be kept. I use IE for websites where I don't want anything kept. And I use Chrome for one website that works best with a Chrome extension. I generally have all 3 open at the same time.

For me, 3 tabs (each showing this thread) in IE11-64bit add up to 164M working set.

Those same 3 tabs in Pale Moon = 166M working set.

The private working set is twice as big for Pale Moon, but I have plenty of RAM - so I don't much care.


If I assigned 4GB to one VM and 3GB to another VM - that only leaves me with 1GB for the host (with a 1GB swap file). Under that load, Windows 7's memory management seems to let Pale Moon only have about 100M working set.

Would this mean that the more RAM that you have available, the more RAM Pale Moon (and some other apps) will reserve? Thus making them appear to hog RAM.
