accessibility mode won't stay on

    Hi all,
    I am thinking about moving my site back to from a self-hosted installation. All my posts are still here from when I was here a few years ago, so now all I have to do is import those posts that I don’t have here, then I am going to re-organize the site into a page-based structure. I started that process tonight by renaming my Site Moved page to Coming Soon and changing the message displayed when you go to My next plan was to activate a number of wigets, the same ones that are active on my self-hosted site. Apparently, the recent comments wiget got activated somehow, and I had a stray wiget that wasn’t active. I managed to get these deleted, but the problem is that I need the accessibility mode to deal with the wigets. The issue is that it won’t stay on. I go to edit another wiget after editing one already, and find that I have to re-enable accessibility mode. How do I get accessibility mode to stay on?

    The blog I need help with is


    Anyone? How can I keep accessibility mode on when I leave the wigets page?



    Here there,
    I’ll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.



    Do you also encounter this issue in a different browser? for example Firefox or Google Chrome?


    I only use IE on a regular basis, I could also try on Safari on my phone.



    Please give the other browsers a try and let me know how that goes. Thank you!


    I’ll have to check with IE again today. I was just using Safari on my phone and it looks like I can add wigets with no problem, but VoiceOver keeps losing focus and jumping all over the page, making that not a very good option either. I’ll check again with IE and post back in a few minutes.


    Ok just checked and still not working with IE.



    Which version of IE are you referring to?
    Check here if necessary
    Did you disable compatibility mode?


    As far as I know, compatibility mode is not on on my browser, using IE10.



    Could you please try to reset your Internet Explorer? note that this process will reset all your IE10 settings.

    1: Close all Internet Explorer and Explorer windows that are currently open.

    2: Start Internet Explorer.

    Note If you are running Windows 8, start Internet Explorer for the desktop. Changing your settings will affect both Internet Explorer and Internet Explorer for the desktop.

    3:On the Tools menu, tap or click Internet options. If you don’t see the Tools menu, press Alt.

    4: In the Internet Options window, tap or click the Advanced tab. Tap or click Reset. If you’re using Windows Internet Explorer 6, click Restore Default.

    5: In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, tap or click Reset.

    6: Select the Delete personal settings check box if you also want to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, Tracking Protection, and ActiveX Filtering data.

    7: When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, tap or click Close, and then tap or click OK.

    8: Exit and then start Internet Explorer.

    Thank you.


    That seems to have solved it, now all I have to do is set up my home page and default search provider again. One thing I still need help with though since the reset is now every time I log into a website, it asks if I want it to remember the password. Not only do I not want it to do that, I don’t want it asking me again. How do I disable this? I remember in previous versions of IE, there was a check box that said don’t show this message again, but I don’t see that with IE10.



    I’m glad it’s solved now.

    Regarding the IE10 issue: you might be able to find some settings about this at Tools -> Internet Options > Content in your browser preferences.

    Or you can disable password caching at

    Thank you.


    Thanks, I think that worked.
