had to revert to ie10 to sort that out, but I'm having another go now..

is there a way to fix the problem with payment sites (I assume it's a firewall/security issue of some kind..??)

You have that correct! So far after leaving several 11 windows open for lengthy periods of time i haven't seen one freeze up so far. I started seeing that a few years back when IE 9 was on for a bit and then started acting up. I then reverted back to 8 after a clean install of 7 and both saw the same problem until I was forced to see another browser made the default.(WaterFox 64bit version of FF)

As far as the other minor annoyances? found so far just a few minutes wait for a fresh window or refreshing the av program to actually refresh the firewall and web filtering clears things up fast. When going to play any web media the other browser has been the one found to be missing plugins however while 11 seems good each time.

IE11 and Google

Seems Microsoft did an update to IE11 and seems to have taken their "scroogle" campaign to a whole new level by hosing the way Google is displayed....

BTW Google notified me that it was put in compatibility Mode by IE....

Checking IE11 though shows it's not in Compatibility View though...

Anyone else seeing this with Google and IE11???

This is with both Windows 7 & Windows 8 machines running IE11

For me Scroogle displays properly but yeah, whenever I click on notifications I get that "compatibility view" message as well, even though it's not listed.

Though personally I don't care - I only go to the Play store when having to search for an Android app so, apart from YouTube, I stay well away from Scroogle.

Whether you use Google or not, its just messed up that Microsoft has to play these childish games, and try forcing users into using Bing.

Anyway I'm sure the issue will get sorted out, but in the meantime I'll use Firefox when using Google as I don't want to use Bing. Tried it didn't like it.

Not sure if this is a fix or coincidence but adding Google as an add-on to search providers and setting it as default fixed the Google display issue...

Tools, Manage add-ons, click Search Providers, down by the close button to it's left you'll see a link that says "find more search providers...", click it and choose your search provider of choice. When you click one it'll ask to be added to Internet Explorer, say yes. Restart IE, and go back and set your choice as default and make sure it's enabled. Restart IE and all should be good. Works on both W7 & 8 running IE11.

All is good now.

Now I see the reason I couldn't replicate that ugly rendering. I had my searches and accelerators set to Google all the time.

Thanks for finding the reason Sygnus.

Thanks, and if you're using IE11 with the accelerator, than yeah, it appears you wouldn't notice it. BTW thanks for confirming my suspicion with your info.

And note that I didn't have to do this with when I first downloaded IE11 a few weeks back. In fact I hadn't even have to do this with IE10. Seems some recent changes in IE11 requires the use of that accelerator now
