Cannot edit macro properties with Internet Explorer


when using Internet Explorer 11, I try to edit a macro properties and no context menu is shown. I am still able to edit it by double-clicking, but it takes some time because the screen is constantly jumping up and down.

Did someone already found this behavior? And know how to solve it?

Thank you,

I know that IE has not always played nice with either Cloud or Server instances of Confluence. 

It is listed as a compatible browser on their documentation:

However it does note that if you have IE's compatibility mode switched on it can cause rendering issues as they no longer support the older rendering methods that IE would be trying to do. So it might be worth checking that first.

Is is possible for you to use another browser? I ask as that ended up being the solution in one of my old companies with IE stopped working with the Edit mode completely. :(
