Navigation Links In WebCenter Portal Are Not Working In IE8 (Doc ID 1908393.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The navigation in the home page is broken with IE8.
The home page is the landing page of a portal which has multiple pages.  The home page contains two Web Components where the components are pointing to full URLs.   

When attempt to access the portal first time, it renders the home page correctly.  However when click on the navigation menu (switch back and forth pages), the portal will hang eventually and the navigation is no longer working.
This issue is only observed in IE browser (have seen in IE8, IE9 and IE10) but not Chrome or FireFox.
