Microsoft Edge IE Mode

Sam Teddy 36 Reputation points


Our web application working fine so far in IE11 and we recently started using Microsoft Edge. We started using IE mode in edge for for application but running into issues with loosing session values when we navigate between windows using java script function. I tried all settings in cookies and session are but none of them working. How to retain session values in IE mode when launch new windows from modal windows ?

    Hi @Sam Teddy ,

    According to your description, I want to know if the new page opened by is also in Edge IE mode? This may be the cause of the problem, because Edge IE mode pages are actually running IE tabs, and if the new page running in Edge instead of IE mode, by default Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer processes do not share session cookies. Simple refer to this doc: Cookie sharing from Microsoft Edge to Internet Explorer.

    In this case, you can try adding the new page to the IE mode sitelist as well, which should solve your problem.

    Best regards,
    Xudong Peng
