is anybody else having problems with following web site,

http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/

using Internet Explorer 10? I can load the site but are unable to get a local weather forcast, which in the past have been able too. The web site works fine in Firefox.

No problem with me - Windows 7, IE 10. I have used this site for years. I put in my post code in the box and it gives the choice of several locations only a mile or two apart.

I have found that if you delete the metoffice cookie after use, subsequently the site will not load all of the available information, and will only show part of the site and helpfiles. Also, curiously, it will load OK if you run IE with protected mode disabled(not advisable).

To reset IE so that the metoffice will load properly, go to Tools> internet options> general tab> Delete browsing history and set as follows:

UNTICK Preserve Favourites website data

TICK Temp internet sites and website files

TICK Cookies and website data

TICK ActiveX filtering and tracking protection data

Set other options as you require.

Click delete button.

And in future, do not delete the metoffice cookie; you should find the site then works OK.

Thank you both for the replies.

Number six,

"I have found that if you delete the metoffice cookie after use, subsequently the site will not load all of the available information, and will only show part of the site and helpfiles".

That is exactly what is happening. Whilst awaiting a reply I "reset" IE 10 (Options-Advanced- Reset)which solved the problem. In future I will do as you suggested. Thanks again.

I would like to add that it is when I use Ccleaner that is removing the cookie, even though I moved it to Cookies to keep in Options.
