As soon as I'm on the page where to select the logon provider, I can click on the icons but nothing happens.

With Firefox everything is fine.

What can I do?

  • Can't reproduce IE 10 Windows 7 (not saying that it's not happening to you). The F12 developer tools might be helpful; attach the script debugger and report any errors, look at network activity to see if a request is initiated and/or aborted, look for errors dumped to the console, etc.

  • I've added additional information based on the settings on my system, which also demonstrates this behavior.

I was able to resolve this on my computer by running IE10 'as administrator'.

The site menus now works again as they used to.

As best as I can tell, the initial error, 'SCRIPT5: Access is denied. full.js, line 109 character 477', appears to have been an issue accessing the local storage. This has gone away since running IE 'as administrator'.

  • Wow. IE needs to run as administrator (a HUGE security risk) just to let localstorage work? That's pathetic. (BTW, good answer, +1).

    Ewww. That's madness. Installing Firefox or Chrome and running them not as an administrator seems much, much less dangerous.

  • I have been able to reproduce this error and was able to solve it by adding http://*.stackoverflow.com/ to the "Trusted Sites" list. It is not necessary, nor is it advisable, to surf the web using IE under elevated privileges (that is, in the "run as Administrator" mode). Nov 3 '13 at 2:57

I recently had a client that had migrated from IE8 to IE10 and all sorts of issues cropped up on previously working sites with the error : SCRIPT5: Access is denied

The issue turned out to be related to Windows profiles as outlined and solved here :


The integrity setting on the AppData\LocalLow folder in each user's profile is supposed to be set to "Low" (hence the name, presumably). In our case, the integrity level was not set correctly on this folder. To rectify the problem, we will need to run the following command under each user's profile (with a login script, for example):

icacls %userprofile%\Appdata\LocalLow /t /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)L

or :

If the command above does not resolve the issue, the registry key that points to the low integrity DOMStore folder may have been changed. Check the CachePath registry value at HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\5.0\LowCache\Extensible Cache\DOMStore. It should be %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalLow\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\DOMStore.


I just attempted to reproduce this under Windows 8 and IE 10. It worked just fine.

  • Could not reproduce either.

  • I'm still not able to reproduce this - do you see any javascript errors in your console? Mar 19 '13 at 18:17
  • F12 IE developer tools reports the following: SCRIPT3: The system cannot find the path specified. openid-jquery.js, line 9 character 73

  • Do you have any plugins that might be impacting the script execution? Mar 19 '13 at 21:55
  • I have LastPass but disabling it and refreshing the page has no effect when the issue occurs.

  • I have this issue as well. I only noticed it starting on 4/12 or so. On loading stackoverflow, where initially encountered, the IE console displays 'SCRIPT5: Access is denied. full.js, line 109 character 477' the console then continues with 'SCRIPT12008: WebSocket Error: Incorrect HTTP response. Status code 503, Service Unavailable ', when I leave the console open to stackoverflow. Additionally, the links in the 'menu bar' (top of page) work, but the stack exchange and account menus are non-functional. Windows 7 using IE10. No addons other than adobe flash, pdf and fiddler.

  • When this occurs for me I experience the same issues re stack exchange and account menus also as @OverForkOver
