May 06, 2014, at 11:20 AM by MichaelPaulukonis - notes on json in legacy explorers
Changed line 97 from:
!! working with Internet Explorer 7
to:
!! working with Legacy Internet Explorer
Added lines 104-115:

While [@json.js@] will not do anything is JSON is defined in the browser, you could use something like the following:

[@
<!--[if IE 8]>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="/path/to/json.js"></script>
<![endif]-->
@]

'''NOTE:''' this would not work for IE7 or IE6. But then again, what would?

Jquery 2.x branch does not even support dinosaur browsers -- meaning IE8.

!! Adding Trusted Sites via the Registry
I ran into an issue adding trusted domains.
A non-admin user couldn't add the site as a trusted domain (required for various reasons, including a [@ActiveX@] control. ugh!), and my attempts to add via group-policy were not working.

However, using [[http://nefaria.com/2009/10/adding-trusted-sites-for-ie-via-the-registry/|this technique]] I was able to export the entries from an admin user, and import them for the non-admin user.

!! working with Internet Explorer 7
ugh.

If you need to use JSON, it's not built-in. You'll have to use [[https://github.com/douglascrockford/JSON-js|json2]] from Douglas Crockford.

I tried using the [[http://code.google.com/p/ie7-js/|js-shim]] but didn't see any differences

[[http://code.google.com/p/ie7-js/|IE7-JS]]
->"IE7.js is a JavaScript library to make Microsoft Internet Explorer behave like a standards-compliant browser. It fixes many HTML and CSS issues and makes transparent PNG work correctly under IE5 and IE6."

I haven't tried it yet.

!! Testing
Testing in IE7 mode in IE9 and IE10 is close, but not close enough.
You really need IE7.
Like a hole in the head, but if the client has IE-7 shaped head-holes, you gotta do what you gotta do.
Not sure about IE8.

!!! Multiple Explorers
[[http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE]] - this is "an installer which contains IE3 IE4.01 IE5 IE5.5 and IE6" (using DLL-redirection to get what it needs).
Untested by me. THANK G-D.

Actually, now I'm a bit curious....

!! Prompting to save passwords, after you told IE to stick it
... and then changed your mind.
[[http://www.bullfrog117.com/unfiltered/2011/06/22/internet-explorer-wont-let-you-change-a-saved-password-hack-the-registry/|Internet Explorer Won’t Let You Change A Saved Password? Hack The Registry!]]

In my case, I had already wiped the password store in an attempt to restore prompting, which was fruitless.
I had set "prompt me!" via tools, but that also yielded no fruit.
However, going to the registry (for '''[@HKLocalUSER@]''' not ''[@HKLocalMachine@]'') and resetting [@AskUser@] to '''[@1@]''' did the trick.
