[Sep. 26, 2014 Update:  IE 11 is certified with EBS 12.1.  Other certifications coming soon.]

Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 is the default browser for Windows 8.1.  It is also compatible with Windows 7.  IE 11 is not certified with any Oracle E-Business Suite releases yet.

If you've reached this article via a search engine, it's possible that a later update on our status is available.  For our latest status, please check the Desktop Client Certifications section of our one-page Certifications summary.

Our current plans for IE 11

We plan to certify Microsoft Internet Explorer 11with Oracle E-Business Suite Release, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2. 

These certifications are underway now.  They will cover Windows 7 and 8 desktop clients, as well as companion certifications with Office 2013, Office 2010, and WebADI.

When will IE 11 be certified?

Oracle's Revenue Recognition rules prohibit us from discussing certification and release dates, but you're welcome to monitor or subscribe to this blog for updates.  I will post updates as soon as soon as they're available.    

Postpone IE 11 rollouts until certified with EBS

We're still certifying Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 with Oracle E-Business Suite, 12.0, 12.1, and 12.2. We have identified some compatibility issues that will require EBS updates to resolve.

You must ensure that your mission-critical desktops remain on an earlier certified browsers until this certification is completed.  As of the time this article was published, certified browsers include IE 10 and Firefox ESR 24 for Windows desktops.

You can block automatic updates by using Microsoft's Internet Explorer 11 Blocker Toolkit:

    Is there any update on when IE 11 could be certified by?

  • Francis Tam Tuesday, July 15, 2014

    Hi Steven,

    Are we closer to certifying IE 11?


  • Steven Chan Tuesday, July 15, 2014

    Richard, Guest, Francis,

    We're continuing to make progress on our IE 11 certification. It needs to be certified with Office (2007, 2010, 2013), Windows (7, 8), and JRE (1.6, 1.7), and EBS (, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2) -- which includes over 200 products. We're continuing to work through all of the permutations.

    You can monitor or subscribe to this blog for the certification announcement.

    Hi Stuart,

    IE 11 is not yet certified in any guise. We are working on removing the need to use compatibility mode with this browser and therefore the testing has been geared to this new architecture. We have previously done a small amount of checks using 'compatibility mode' which was the requirement for IE10 and to a lesser extent IE9 and in principle this should work in a similar manner with IE11 on 12.1.3 as it overcomes launch and other display issues.

    Would the use the Enterprise Mode option in IE 11 fall into the same rules of third party software?



  • Steven Chan Wednesday, July 23, 2014

    Hello, J,

    Once we release the EBS server-side patches required for IE 11 compatibility, we expect that IE 11 will work without having to enable any special modes at the desktop level. Specifically, we would expect that EBS + IE 11 will not require Enterprise Mode.

    Since setting those special modes will not be required to work with the E-Business Suite, we would consider those to be treate
