    Hi team,

    I have one seriously limitation using head resources with ie8. I have one App_Themes with some large amount of css 126ko in small files and after i add some codebehind link and scripts. All is working fine in FF and Safari/Chrome but is not loading in ie8. Scripts are linked but not loaded in memory. Resulting, the SimpleControls are not loading styles and other resources when are registered in head, not loading StyleBuilder telerik resources. If you see in Debug bar head are complete but Css stopped after some amount of script. I have tried changing resources and order. Tried changing meta like suggest some ie8 bug posting. Some info about?
    Regards

    Hello Pierre,

    I am not sure that I have met such bug before. Can you check if there are any security restrictions, rather than size related limitations? You can temporary include the site in the trusted web sites, and check its behavior. Other than, please check the sitefinitywatch.com web site, there is an article for web site optimization and scripts combining/compressing, perhaps this will help. 

    All the best,

    Hi Georgi,

    I can confirm. I have one list of styles in my App_Theme foder. I have developed one MVC method that use many microtemplates to build my client solutions. In this case i haved more than 30 templates placed in this folder and size between 1-5K by css stylesheet. During running i have lost in ie8 the styles on some parts of my pages specially the loaded bottom of head during scripting adds. I have moved some of templates and after the not loaded templates and resources are full loaded and functionals. Is like no more space to load more some limit?. I have searched some ie8 bugs and one speak about 4k limitation, but in my case is not this. For the moment the only way to run is implementing one compressor for ccs style sheet and limiting number of sheets. I have compressed some of my style sheet and added. Now is working for me but this limitation is very frustrating. I not in production for this solution, only working in localhost full rights.

    WORKING FF,Chr,SF, LIMITED IN IE8(Ie8,64b, full actualized) 
    Working with 38 calls and 128KB stylesheets 0.1K-13K BUT ONLY 31 LOAD in IE8! lost the last in the list.

    ALL WORKING: limiting number of css after compress to work with ie8
    Working with 26 calls and 146KB stylesheets 0.1K-19K

    Regards.

    Hello Pierre,

    Unfortunately there is nothing we can do, it seems there is such restriction indeed. The only thing you could do is to combine the stylesheets, or limit their use.

    Kind regards,
