And as for known issues, there ARE issues and not only to me. I have communicated through e mail concerning it, And the ticket is NOT solved as the status indicates. Dmitriy also has the exact same problems. I have sent images of the what the problem is to John (through email) And Dmitriy has posted exact same images in a response to a post there.


I can not access since Thursday the page where my proposals are. It just loads and loads and loads forever. Also, I can not submit proposals. When I click on the submit button, all I get is the very top of the page.  Everything else, I can access with IE 11. It's just those 2 things.


Please see my original post and scroll down to see the images in Dmitriy's response as they are EXACTLY what I'm experiencing.


I can't be any clearer then that and yet I'm getting, from customer services, about not being able to add attachments, and about IE running slow etc which has nothing to do with the 2 problems I'm experiencing. AND also from the reply Lena E gave me.

Thanks for clarifying, Kathy.

I merged your threads so that everything is in one place, and we can update everyone involved more efficiently. I checked and it seems that this has already been escalated to the proper teams for their investigation.

Avery, How about clarifying what Lena told me about Upwork not supporting IE anymore. And if it's true, why isn't Upwork announcing that? And if it's not true, why doesn't anyone know what anyone else is doing, and no one knows what the H*** is going on already.

Avery, What I posted is a direct quote from Lena E in a private message to me.


If you have access to my private messaged, and I give you complete permission to read them, you can see for yourself.


And if you wish for me to take a screen shot of it, I certain will.

Of all the Crazy things going on concerning Upwork, did anyone know that Upwork no longer supports IE (Internet Explorer) If you are using IE, and it is still working and you are still able to navagate throughout this site and load all the various pages and links, great, but as more and more updates are rolled out, those freelancers still using IE will find that that what they were able to access and navagate to, those links will no longer be available.


I wonder why no announcement was made.

IE has to die. In atrocious suffering.

Kathy, Rene is correct. IE has been on a long agonizing deathbed for a few years.  Switch to either Firefox or Chrome. I use both and from personal experience Chrome is the more reliable for U elated stuff.

It was already confirmed that Upwork supports (as best as anything can) IE.


The problem is that IE is not a proper browser. It is a nightmare and should only be used on a brand new computer to download a proper browser before being uninstalled immediately and permanently.

Yes; and they're probably using Windows XP too.
