Here's my list of issues with IE 11 running on full HTML 5 compliant websites like mine. I'm not interested in adding JavaScript to make IE 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 work when I see that IE 11 is part of a update for Windows 7. If you have specific issues related to HTML5 operation drop me a line. This page is only for HTML5 issues using IE 11. My workstation has no Adobe products installed in IE 11. Updated JavaScript. The idea is to be able to run IE 11 without dependency on third party plug-ins.

Internet Explorer 11 - IE11 HTML5 

Finding a few issues with IE 11 but overall it's better than what I would have expected on a first attempt at HTML5 compliant browsers. 

Issue with mailto: link association when using Microsoft Live Mail and Windows 7.

It appears the registry entry that IE 11 needs is missing completely.

You'll need to create the key and create the value.

Create Key "mailto"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\mailto

Create String Value URL Protocol

To see if this fix above is just what you need here's what you might have seen. 
These issues have been documented in IE 10 as well. 

  1. When you click on a email address using the mailto <a href=mailto ... protocol the following error will be displayed and 40 or more browser windows will open blank. You will need to close them using the task manager. 

Mailto _issue _IE11_click _link _no _address _tag _prompts

You may not be able to see the image above until you close out all the IE windows like this image below. 

Mailto _issue _IE11_Error _MAILTO

You're going to need to close all these windows using the task manager. (right click the task bar and left click on "Start Task Manager".

You can see in this video just what happens.
