SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is not compatible with Internet Explorer 11

In SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), the toolbar that displays the report controls and export features, appears on multiple lines when viewed with Internet Explorer 11.

In my search of a fix, I came across the following:

In the post I found the following from Mariusz Cichomski of Microsoft.


We are happy to inform that the problem was fixed in CU8 for SQL Server 2012 Sp1. Please visit the http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2917531 to get the update.

The workaround did not resolved the toolbar display issue for me but the article might help others. In the Workaround section I followed Shaun Baggett's suggestion:

"You can get the SSRS toolbar to behave if you run IE 11 in Compatibility mode. This is now under Tools/Compatibility View Settings. Then add your site to the list."

I found the following so please be aware.

"We have quite a wide community of web users and offering instructions on how to add our domain to the compatibility view list is just more unwanted support overhead. Also, compatibility view appears to break other parts of our website."
