Today I am going to share a small piece of information, most probably all of you know it, still sharing it as it caused significant amount of time killing on our development team.
The problem started when we noticed no submit button is working in ie 10 in one of our development project. further more our client identified this bug as showstopper which raised the importance level of the issue to critical for the project. Hence we decided to take a look at this issue quickly.
After few minutes of testing we didn’t noticed any problem that can cause this issue, Later we enabled “Display a notification about every Script Error” in IE 10 and then we quickly find out the issue.
Then immediately the problem got visible to all of us. there is what the script error looks like.
What is the problem?

The fixes solve the browser-detection issue forever for all sites on a machine. These will be rolled up into future versions of the framework and will eventually also be on Windows Update.
