Internet Explorer 9

Now it happened and I couldn’t stop it – Windows 7 installed IE9 on my computer after a fresh install.

IE8 worked fine with Oracle R12 but what will IE9 bring?

Without going into details this is what I have to do to make it work:

  • Allow Java to run (same as in IE8)
  • Enable pop-ups (same as in IE8)
  • Disable XSS filter (new)


After logging all is fine – your problems start when you click a link for the Java based forms.

This webpage wants to run the following add-on “Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment"


Click Allow and click the Java link again

Internet Explorer blocked a pop-up from


Click drop-down “Options for this Site” and click “Always Allow”:


click the Java link again:

Internet Explorer has modified this page to prevent cross-site scripting


This is caused by the "XSS Filter" but not to open your security to the whole world we need to add the URL to "Trusted Sites" similar as recommended for IE8:


Click Sites and click Add:


Then click close and click "Custom Level" to disable the XSS filter:


Click OK and retry the link to the Java form:
