From this post on MSDN Blogs:
The reading view button will appear in the address bar for pages that have “article-like” content. If you don’t see it, it means that the page doesn’t work well in reading view.
That's rather vague and unhelpful. Luckily, our friends at Stack Overflow have managed to narrow it down a bit:
You have to have a non-empty <...
Windows Phone appears to have trouble with non-fully qualified domain names (FQDN) such as http://intranet or http://server.
When setting up any kind of server for local or internal use, it's best to use a FQDN. For example...
This is a Facebook web server misconfiguration. I had it to, like every other WP. it comes from the incompatibility of the web browser detection. Instead of getting the Site for "Mobile IE" most servers don't understand this Info when it gets from phone to the server.. I found no workaround except using the "Desktop Mode" which only "says": Hey there I'm not ...
Windows Phone 8.1 comes with Internet Explorer 11 Update (which has some additional changes over the desktop version).
For completeness, Windows 10 Mobile comes with Edge, whilst Windows Phone 8.0 came with Internet Explorer 10
The following solution worked for me:
Clear the web history in Internet Explorer
Open Internet Explorer
Go to Settings
Tap "delete history"
Confirm deletion (passwords don't have to be deleted)
Remove/unpin all black tiles from start screen
Pin web pages again to start screen
Within Windows Phone 8.0, there is no control over the display size for text within Internet Explorer 10.
Windows Phone 8.1 updates the browser to Internet Explorer 11, which is now available as the Nokia Cyan update for your specific phone. These updates should make some improvements in how some websites render, but GDR1 is set to improve website ...
Tabs that you've used stay in memory as long as Internet Explorer stays in memory (i.e. it shows in the list when pressing, and holding the back button). If the Internet Explorer falls off the list of running applications, the open tabs are preserved, but are refreshed the next time you use them - this is the same behaviour as the desktop version (and, for ...
The file upload capabilities have been extended with IE11 on WP 8.1, now allowing you to upload photos, videos, documents, music, ringtones and downloaded files.
Starting with Windows Phone 8.1, IE supports a feature called Reading View which presents a stripped-down, text-centric version of the webpage you're viewing, and can optionally be configured to show white text on a black background.
To activate Reading View, tap the book icon in the IE address bar when it shows up. Note, however, that this icon does not ...
Luckily IE on windows phone supports bookmarklets, and this one can do that
The recently browsed website will always appear when you reopen IE. You have to close the tab in IE and then it won't show up. Deleting the history from IE on gets rid of the list of websites under "Recent".
With Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, Microsoft introduced the ability for you to roam the currently opened tabs, and maintain them across reboots. It also allows you to open a tab that you were looking at on another device (so if you find something whilst on the train on your phone, you can then open the same tab on your desktop when you get home).
This is ...
What version of Windows Phone do you have 8.0 or 8.1? It's been many months since I used WP 8.0, so I'm a little rusty there.
As far as Windows Phone 8.1, IE11 doesn't really have the concept of a homepage. New tabs are just a blank page. If you try to visit the main Bing page you'll be taken to Cortana, unless you have your preferences set to render ...
I have had the same problem twice. Here is the fix that worked for me.
Unpin all the blank website tiles
Open IE settings and delete browser history
Under IE advanced setting, uncheck 'allow files to be saved to the phone'
Under IE advanced settings, check 'allow files to be saved to the phone'
This is due to your ISP/network operator. I have experienced it.
If I back out of the browser and go back in, it doesn't appear
As I recall, it will appear the first time you open your browser after turning on the mobile data/Wi-Fi. It may also appear when you are accessing the internet after turning on a modem. It depends on the ISP.
It is not a home ...
The mobile version of Internet Explorer does not have a page like "about:config".
However, this has changed with Edge. If you are using Windows 10 Mobile you can type about:flags in address bar and get access to advanced features.
This option cannot be configured in Windows 10 mobile i.e) in Edge. This button will be there for tabs only.
Will it change in future?
Possibly not unless there is a heavy demand.
Here is the reason. Edge browser shares a large amount of source code between PC and mobile. Left button is currently the only way to access the Tabs. The other options possible ...
Looks like a certain pattern emerges in testing! Always remember to include the scheme in your URLs :).
HTTPS://bbc.co.uk works, as predicted by the pattern.
The pattern is broken by http://6-dot-gfblip.appspot.com and the original http://gfblip.appspot.com. That said, the long-distance probes to http://apenwarr.com (and eqldata.com, URL scheme unknown) ...
When you open Internet Explorer on Windows Phone 8, it resumes to the tabs that you had opened in your last browsing session. So, in essence, it doesn't have a home page.
If you close all the tabs, as already noticed according to your question,you're going to get a blank page. But, as you said this does not solve the problem, I recommend that you go under ...
When you download files, you will get a prompt to choose to download or open, when there is an app installed associated to the MIME type of the file. For other files, or when you choose to save, these are stored in the Downloads folder that shows up when you connect to your PC, or in the Files app.
mp3 downloaded from IE or WhatsApp goes to an internal storage which is not accessible and no file manager is available to access those mp3.
However you can find those mp3 on you music player, mp3 are added automatically.
Use other browser such as UC Browser, that stores all the mp3 or any other data at your external SD card. And those ...
Open MS Office in Windows phone
Tap on OneDrive from places
Tap on Documents
There you will find your notebooks
On top left where you see the arrows, tap on that
You can navigate easily
Well, it seems like this is not possible with out of the box IE functionality.
But you can have it making simple bookmarklet. In Internet Explorer, show the three-dot context menu, select add to favorites option. Type in some name, i.e. _showTitles and copy and paste this code to the Web address input (I used OneNote to get it inside my phone):
