Note: The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired and go out of support on June 15, 2022 (for a list of what's in scope, see the FAQ). The same IE11 apps and sites you use today can open in Microsoft Edge with Internet Explorer mode. Learn more here.

Symptoms

You have an ActiveX control that uses the following code to hide or to reset the browser chrome:

pweb2->put_AddressBar(VARIANT_FALSE); 
pweb2->put_MenuBar(VARIANT_FALSE);
pweb2->put_StatusBar(VARIANT_TRUE);
pweb2->put_ToolBar(VARIANT_FALSE);
pweb2->Release();

However, when you run the ActiveX control in Windows Internet Explorer 8, the ActiveX control does not work correctly. Additionally, the browser chrome is not hidden or reset as expected.

Note If you resize the browser, the browser chrome is hidden or reset as expected.
