Currently this is only known to occur in Internet Explorer 9.


The cause is unknown. 


  1. Run JIRA in safe mode to disable ALL JIRA plugins. Try and reproduce the error again. This test is important because we want to make sure no third party plugin is causing Internet Explorer to crash.
    1. If safe mode resolves the issue, then you will need to find out which plugin is causing this. You can do so by re-enabling all plugins one-by-one and testing this to narrow down the problematic plugin.
  2. Open Internet Options in your browser via Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options and select the Advanced tab and tick Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering and apply and restart IE.
