Can't view submissions of an Encrypted Form with a Private Key over Internet ExplorerAsked by absolutelyfish on October 22, 2015 at 05:22 PM
I am able to open the encrypted key documents no problem but my client can not. We did a screen share so I could see how he was doing it (correctly), I sent it below. When he navigates the the key it just sits there in the graphic (with the lick and key in the attached screenshot) where mine says "Successfully opened" or something like that and then it opens. I have sent him the jotform key multiple times and it always works right away for me. Any idea why it will not open for him? Please help. Thanks -gene

Thank you for letting us know that you've managed to resolve the issue.
As you have experienced first hand, it is best to use either Firefox or Chrome browsers for using our tools, as they are the most advanced and standards-compliant browsers. If you would like us to check further into the issue and possibly resolve the error on Internet Explorer as well, please let us know what version of Internet Explorer was this happening on.
I would also like to point out that Microsoft is already planning on dropping all support for Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and 10 in January 2016, which is just around the corner. Starting from IE 11, the standards-compliance is much better, so such issues should be less prominent even with IE in the future.
I hope this helps.
Same issue here! Was not able to upload the encryption key using IE11. Switched to FireFox and everything worked BEAUTIFULLY! Thank you everyone.
Great to know that.
If you need further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to help you.
Same issue here.
I am not able to upload the encryption key using Internet Explorer 11 (Version:11.0.9600).
I am not able to switch to other browsers due to some IT department requirements.
Can you please look into this issue further... I experience the exact same issue as the original poster's client in different laptop units (even my own home machine using the same browser version as above.
