What works

Plain text links only, Internet Options.

What does not

Only physical plain-text links work, rendering it useless. No text fields or buttons. This includes the address and search bars.

When returning to IE with another window that has covered it, the website area is blank, but hovering the mouse over clickable elements shows chunks of the website.

Also, it is impossible to right-click the toolbar.

Black chunks are shown on the address bar, similar to other screenshots.

Refuses to close. Needs to be killed in the task manager. 

What was not tested

Pretty much everything, You can't get anywhere but the home page and basic links from it.

Additional Comments

Only plain links work, so it is useless.
