This is a very annoying thing happening to the reports I am developing. The top breadcrumb sometimes works fine while at times breaks into multiple lines. I have only IE 11 in my environment, Is it the browser issue? If not then please help me fix this.

Below is the screenshot.


  • No it's not a Browser issues. Apr 25, 2018 at 11:28
  • @MdHaidarAliKhan Any solution for this? Apr 25, 2018 at 11:38
  • Could you provide bit specific more about your system configuration and also SQL Server . Apr 25, 2018 at 11:42
  • SQL Server 2012 Enterprise and System has all high specs. I am still doubting my browser. Apr 25, 2018 at 11:49
  • As per your screen shot it does not seems that you have browser IE11 issue. Suppose that you have "browser level" issue or "report server level" issue then you have to do troubleshooting. Apr 25, 2018 at 11:51

AFter days of scratching my head and google finally fixed with a vey simple setting. This was resolved by adding the url to the Compatibility View Settings in the IE browser settings.



As MSSQLTIPS blog documentation here Sometimes when you change parameter values IE11 stops responding or it takes a long time to load the report. You may also find that the toolbar that displays the report controls and export features, appears on multiple lines when viewed with IE11. When you preview the same SSRS report in Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, it works fine without any issue, which means it is a browser compatibility issue. How can you make SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) compatible with IE11?
