Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) support has been added as a post-release certification on currently available ADF versions. In order to run ADF with IE11 make sure to install the below mentioned patches for your ADF version. If not installed you will see a popup error on your browser indicating you are using an unsupported browser:


The most significant change between MS IE 10 and IE 11 is that the browser's User-Agent header has changed, and ADF no longer even recognizes the browser's product family. However, internal testing has shown that there are many other changes in IE 11 that have an impact on ADF, and these all need to be evaluated before ADF can be certified for use with IE 11. Customers should bear in mind that, at this time, IE 11 has only recently been formally released, and the certification process takes some time

Please note that ADF is used as the basis of a number of Oracle products, as well as a product in its own right. Products based on ADF, such as WebCenter/Portal, may have their own arrangements for IE 11 certification. In general, please refer to the certification matrix at:


Note on IE 11 Enterprise Mode:
Oracle does NOT support / certify the Internet Explorer 11 Enterprise Mode (refer to: or Compatibility View Mode.
What it means is that Oracle Support may ask you to reproduce the problem you are facing within standard IE 11 and/or IE 8 functionality.
An alternative to work with such Internet Explorer 11 Enterprise Mode is to create a list of sites to use Enterprise Mode other than Oracle product sites/applications, or alternatively disable it when requested by Oracle Support.


We recommend you to regularly check the certification matrix.


Below is the list of ADF patches for IE11 support:
