In this post we will discuss how we can resolve a SharePoint 2013 IE 11 issue. The issue comes in IE 11 only not in any browser. Recently one user was getting the below error while opening a SharePoint 2013 site in IE 11 in a virtual machine. The error coming was:
An error occurred with data fetch. Please refresh the page and retry.
Just to let you know that the issue was coming in one user who was checking in IE 11 in a Virtual Machine on a windows 8.1 laptop. Also after refreshing continuously the error will go, but when user try to edit the page, the ribbon is greyed out like below:
SharePoint 2013 IE 11 issue An error has occurred with the data fetch
To solve the issue, below are few things which you can try out.
Open IE browser then go to Tools (Alt+T) -> Compatibility View Setting -> Then add the site there to be displayed in Compatibility View.
Option-2: [This option worked for us]
Go to Internet Options -> Security -> Trusted Sites. Then click on Sites button and Add the site there.
Open IE, then go to Tools -> Options -> Advanced and then Uncheck Enable DOM storage in security tab.
If you are using custom master page?
If you have created any custom master page for the same site. Verify the below tag:
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=10″ />
And replace with below tag:
<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE10″ />
Hope this will be helpful.
