    Controls are not rendering properly in IE11 and Firefox

    We have asp.net controls are in our application which are not rendering peoperly ie11 and firefox, chrome etc browsers. These controls styles are using .htc files. I heard htc behaviors are not working in firefox and IE11. what is the solution for this?

    basically IE 11 and Firefox follows HTML5 control set and stylesheet, so most of the time back word compatibility is not possible in IE11, you need to switch ON 'compatibility mode' and then test your website
    Follow the steps to switch ON compatibility mode

    1.See if the Compatibility View button Compatibility View button appears in the address bar. (If you don't see the button, there's no need to turn on Compatibility View.)
    2.Click the Compatibility View button Compatibility View button to display the site in Compatibility View.
    alternatively you can switch to following link

    Hi Chinnari.

    There is a add-on to be installed for the firefox browser in order to change the compatibility mode .
    You can download User Agent Switcher extension. Which allow you to change the version of firefox.
    From below link you can download that add-on

    For more information regarding the switching of versions refer below forum post.

    Hai Chinnari,
    Yes, either you can do it with the browser or you can write the code to use the browser in compatibility mode.
    At the below link you can get the code snippet for the IE and similarly you can do for other browsers:

    Hope it will be helpful to you.
