How to configure ECC to default to compatibility mode for Internet Explorer
Resolution:
Many companies default their Internet Explorer Settings to show all pages from an Internal IP's in 'Compatibility Mode'.

Rather than disabling the setting, add the following entry to the configurations.properties file in the ECC/config/.
The file configurations.properties.sample provides additional settings that can be configured as needed.

The setting for IE is:

## Document compatibility mode that Windows Internet Explorer should use to
## display a webpage
#htmlheader.meta.http-equiv.x-ua-compatible = IE=edge
(the # indicates a comment)

Add the line:
htmlheader.meta.http-equiv.x-ua-compatible = IE=edge

after the entries already in the configuration.properties file.

The file will now look something like:

truststore = truststore.jks
truststorePassword = ­­10C122029C6945895C
automationEngineTimeoutMilliseconds = 30000
asyncLoadingTimeoutMilliseconds = 15000

## Added entry below to test compatibility mode setting - 2/6/13
## Document compatibility mode that Windows Internet Explorer should use to
## display a webpage
htmlheader.meta.http-equiv.x-ua-compatible = IE=edge
