IE 10 causes the search results and notifications box to be displayed in a different location on the page

I'm in the process of testing our new baseline of Windows 7 and IE 10 and found it causes the search results and notifications popup to be displayed in a differnt location on the right side of the browser window. I've tried both native rendering and compatibility mode with no luck. We are not currently in a position to upgrade to 5.x at this point in time.

Is there any workaround?

Hi Christopher,

Internet Explorer 10.0 is not fully supported browser when using Confluence .. Especailly when using "Compatibily View" option. If you want to avoid UI issue with Confluence the best way is to switch to different browser (Firefox, Chrome).

More information about supported platforms you can find in below documentation:

I hope that will help,

Best Regards,


Hi Mirek,

Thanks for the reply. I did read the supported versions for 4.3, that's why I was hoping for another possible workaround. Our enterprise business standard is IE for the desktop so unfortunately we cannot use another by policy. We will upgrade to Confluence 5.x sometime later this year which has the support for IE 10.
