Moodle site opens in Firefox/Chrome/Safari but not Internet Explorer
Our moodle site has been left to its own devices for quite a while so yesterday we did some maintenance on it and something, no Idea what has cause and issue where it will open up fine in any non IE browser but in IE it just sits there connecting constantly and will do so for hours without displaying the page.
Anyone had anything similar?

Nope, but will probably be some standard bug, such as you change something that Internet Explorer cannot work out for itself when other browsers can. What did you do during the maintenance?

Disabled the proxy in HTTP as it no longer existed, changed the email server to new one, added a slideshow module and also got the moodle cron service functioning again.
All of which we have undone and the problem still exists.

Assuming your moodle is fully online can you provide us with a link so we can have a look for ourselves?
28th May 2010, 09:32 AM #5
As much as I appreciate the help it wont be possible to give out links.

If that is the case then it makes it very difficult at all to be able to help you at all, unless someone else has experienced an identical problem.

Which version of IE?
Try disabling IE script debugger.

bump we've just had this happen here. Never used moodle before but the guy who normally manages it is out so its down to little old me to fix it. Any ideas?

What did you do yo your moodle box before this happened?
Maybe the problem is infact with IE updates going out?

I've just visited your moodle site, in
Internet Explorer 8 8.0.7600.16385
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.5512
Its worked in every single browser I have installed on the computer im currently sat at. Do you get a completely blank page still? If so have you tried updating IE, maybe clear your IE browsing cache?

we have a wsus setup that deal;s with updates and my machine as well as several others appear to be fully updated and working fine, its just moodle. Ive tried clearing the browsing cache but no joy. It displays a internet explorer cannot display your webpage diagnose connection problems although there isnt any lol.
It must be something internally here then... Any other ideas before I hit it? lol

Only all the basic setting im afraid then.
Restart the webserver, check the DNS and IP addresses are correct? It should all be ok since other browers can see it.
The most interesting one would be do you use a proxy? Are the exceptions in that correct? I think Chrome uses IE's setting but Firefox you might have set within the browser?
