Important: The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application is retired and out of support as of June 15, 2022 for certain versions of Windows 10.

You can still access older, legacy sites that require Internet Explorer with Internet Explorer mode in Microsoft Edge. Learn how.

The Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will progressively redirect to the faster, more secure Microsoft Edge browser, and will ultimately be disabled via Windows Update. Disable IE today.

Symptoms

When you open a hosted MHTML (.mht) file that has embedded script resources in Internet Explorer 11, Internet Explorer 10, or Windows Internet Explorer 9, the MHTML file may be displayed incorrectly and you may receive a script error. This issue occurs if the network connection to the file location experiences latency or slowness.

Resolution

Update information

To resolve this problem, install the most recent cumulative security update for Internet Explorer. To do this, go to Microsoft Update. Additionally, see the technical information about the most recent cumulative security update for Internet Explorer.

Note This update was first included in March cumulative security update for Internet Explorer (MS15-018).

More information

This issue occurs because of a timing issue for Internet Explorer when it requests the embedded resources.

Status

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