Canucked 07:01 Morning
Morning
I'm working on a project that uses FIreBreath (which is awesome btw). We are going through testing rounds and the only browser that is giving me issues is IE11. The plugin isn't even listed. We have it working on all other browsers we want to support (IE8,IE9,IE10,Chrome and Firefox). Thoughts?

taxilian 08:01 Canucked: IE11 does some funny things to make it difficult to detect that it's actually IE
it should still work, but most detection code won't see the plugin
dougma 09:01 Ie11 on win8 64bit has enhanced protected mode. I don't believe it's enabled by default... But it makes things awkward if it's on.
Canucked 09:01 The plugin is not even showing up on the addon page.
I've seen several threads about needing to refactor JS a little to see the control but I'm not even that far.
Could be IT has this locked out with group policy or something. TBH I don't know much about that stuff.
dougma 09:01 In manage add ons don't forget to toggle the "show" combo
taxilian 09:01 Canucked that's normal; activex controls don't normally show up on that page until after they are loaded once
Canucked 09:01 Right, Manage Addons->Show: All addon-ons
Right, Manage Addons->Show: All addon-ons
taxilian: interesting, I didn't know that.
taxilian 09:01 Canucked have you tried the FBControl.htm auto-generated file to see if that works? the one that has the object tag already in the page?
also, have you verified if you're running the 32 or 64 bit version of IE?
Canucked 09:01 No I haven't but I will dot hat.
No I haven't but I will dot hat.
Yes, 32bit IE
taxilian 09:01 okay
try that
but don't expect it to show up in the add-ons list; my experience is that normally it doesn't on IE — all versions
Canucked 09:01 I'll try that, thank you guys.
taxilian 09:01 good luck
good luck
Canucked 09:01 That's good feedback, I would not have guessed that was the case ;)
taxilian 09:01 it's IE… start guessing that whatever would be the most convoluted and backward is true and you'll often be right
Canucked 09:01 ha ha ha
taxilian 09:01 like for example, in IE 11 the if statement: if (ActiveXObject) will fail
like for example, in IE 11 the if statement: if (ActiveXObject) will fail
also checking if if (window.attachEvent) will fail
also checking if if (window.attachEvent) will fail
dougma 09:01 At least ie still has plugins. :)
Canucked 09:01 interesting
taxilian 09:01 and yet you can still use ActiveXObject and you have to use attachEvent to make events work
dougma: so do all the other browsers… for a little longer, at least. except in windows RT mode
