Why can't I delete my repository ?

Yesterday I was learning about BitBucket. From my home PC I created and deleted a few repositories.

Today (from my office PC) I cannot delete my repositories or update the status of any issues.

I am using the same username and password to login to bit bucket so why can I not perform these actions?

Hi Warren,

Thanks for clarifying this. In this case, I believe this is in fact due to the use of IE 9 - according to https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/which-browsers-does-bitbucket-support-296092232.html Bitbucket Cloud is tested for the browsers Chrome, Firefox and IE 11+.



Hi Warren,

Could you please provide further details about your issue? Please inform things such as:

  • Do you get any errors when trying to delete a repository?
  • What do you mean by "update the status of any issues"? What issues are you talking about?
  • Assuming the risk of asking a silly question, are you accessing the same instance of Bitbucket Server? In case you're actually accessing bitbucket.org please let us know, since that would then be Bitbucket Cloud, and not Bitbucket Server.



Just submitted an extensive response to your questions Gustavo but I can't see it displayed in this thread. So here is a shorter version.  

  • Using https://bitbucket.org
  • "RESOLVING" an issue doesn't do anything when you click it. Page just sits there fully responsive waiting for you to do something else.

I believe the issue is Internet Explorer 9 related. All functionality works fine in Firefox, Chrome, Edge but not in IE9.
