    Message shows browser not secure
    When i first logged in I was geting a Message that I was using a insecure browser.
    I am using the latest version of IE9 with the latest updates.
    I then tried to load my stats page but the little cricle kept spinning.
    Next When I used the java script function in the the address bar to get the document mode it returned undefined insted of a number.
    I fired up the F-12 Developer tools and it showed I was running in IE9 Compat browser mode and IE7 Standards mode. Once I changed the Browser mode from Compat to IE9 and then the Document mode to IE9 Standards then the stats page would work.
    Next I submitted that page to the WC3 validation page and it showed 41 errors and 6 warnings.
    I saved the complete webpage of the validation if you want a copy of it.
    Just wanted to let you know.

  2. Running IE9 in compatibility mode means it renders as IE7 and IE7 is not supported.

    The errors in markup on the Twenty Ten theme are an issue for Themes Staff to address. I'm flagging this thread so it will be moved to the Themes Forum where Themes Staff can respond.

    Ok thanks, I figured out the work around, but others may not have known about it.
    I was surprised with the number of errors. They appear to be trying to make them IE9 standards/ HTML 5 compliant.
    Though there seems to be no clear cut do this, don't do that from my recent research on the subject.

    On further Investigation i discovered that IE9 was set to default to IE9 Compat mode.
    In IE9 under tools > Compatibliity View settings > then in that Window there is a a checkbox at the bottom (Display All Websites In Compatibility View), and you uncheck it, that solves the problem if Sites normaly work in the normal mode.
