Consider the following scenario:

  • You have a webpage that is rendering in Internet Explorer 10 document mode or an earlier document mode.

  • The webpage contains Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) code that is associated with a timer.

  • You try to view the webpage in Internet Explorer 11 Preview.

In this scenario, Internet Explorer 11 Preview incorrectly does not start the VBScript code that is associated with the timer. Therefore, the webpage may not appear or behave as expected.


To resolve this issue, install update 2871055 from Windows Update.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
