Internet Explorer Support Policy

This article specifies the Liferay support policy for the Internet Explorer browser. It addresses support coverage unique to Internet Explorer which is not addressed in the Browsers policy.

For more information please see the Browsers policy.

Compatibility Mode

Internet Explorer Compatibility mode is not tested as compatible with any Liferay products. Internet Explorer Compatibility mode is a native feature of Internet Explorer and is distinct from IE11 mode found within Microsoft Edge.

Internet Explorer 11 Support Coverage

Liferay Digital Experience Platform (DXP) was compatible with Internet Explorer 11, however, the browser has reached it's end of support life. Once a browser reaches end of support life, Liferay will provide support on a case-by-case basis.

For All Versions of Liferay

Microsoft recommends using Microsoft Edge as your default browser and supports Internet Explorer 11 for backward compatibility.  If business needs require the use of Internet Explorer 11 for legacy programs other than Liferay, then Microsoft recommends using Enterprise Mode with Edge Legacy or IE11 Mode with the latest version of Edge. This mode enables specific websites to open in an Internet Explorer 11 compatible more automatically. Liferay should not be viewed in Enterprise Mode or IE11 Mode since these modes are not tested for compatibility.

Liferay always recommends using the latest available technology tested as compatible for the specific version of Liferay DXP.  This means that Liferay recommends using the latest compatible version of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, or Safari. For more details on the compatible versions please see the compatibility matrix:

Liferay DXP 7.4 and Above

Internet Explorer 11 is not certified as compatible with Liferay DXP 7.4 and above. Issues experienced while using Liferay DXP 7.4 and Internet Explorer 11 will not be addressed. Liferay DXP 7.4 is certified as compatible with Microsoft Edge (latest version).

Liferay DXP 7.3 and Below

Liferay DXP 7.3 and lower versions had different levels of compatibility with Internet Explorer 11. However, since Internet Explorer 11 has reached end of life reported issues will be treated on a case-by-case basis. The resolution to reported issues will most likely be workarounds or documented product limitations.
