  1. Nope. Not correct. Firefox works fine. Internet Explorer is hopelessly broken. Ignore me if you want. I know what I'm talking about. My purpose in posting here is to save the time and sanity of others like me who find themselves in this situation.

Like microsoft's login services at live.com, and Office 365 applications like Word and Excel.

There is a setting buried in the registry somewhere which prevents proper rendering of content in certain circumst
