*We do not specify version levels for Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer 9 and above, beyond what is stated above.

Some of the site's functionality doesn't work or page display is broken? What are some possible causes?

Browsers: Using older browsers, non-compatible browsers or disabling browser features, such as JavaScript, cookies and SSL, may reduce site functionality.

Firewalls: If you are accessing AA.com through a firewall or proxy, check with your Network Administrator to determine if cookies are permitted.

Pop-Up Blockers: If you have a pop-up blocker installed, it may also prevent some functionality on our site.

Internet Explorer Compatibility Mode: If you have used compatibility mode to access another application, be sure to re-set to Standards Mode. AA.com does not support compatibility mode.

How to disable Internet Explorer compatibility view

Internet Explorer has a Compatibility View, a feature that affects how some websites are displayed. Compatibility View causes AA.com to behave incorrectly. To help make sure that AA.com works properly, you need to remove AA.com from your list of sites that have Compatibility View enabled. To do this, follow the steps below:

For IE8 users:

  1. Open the Tools menu at the top of your browser and select Compatibility View Settings.
  2. Select AA.com under "Websites you've added to Compatibility View." If you don't see "AA.com" listed, or if these steps don't help you resolve the problem, please make sure your computer has the latest Windows updates.
  3. Click Remove.
  4. At the bottom of the window, make sure that the box next to "Display all websites in Compatibility View" is not checked.
  5. Click Close. The page you're on will refresh and display in normal IE8 standards mode.

For IE9 and IE10 users:

  1. Right-click on the gear icon in the upper right hand corner, next to the "favorites" star icon. (If you don't see this gear icon or your "File" and "Tools" menus at the top of your window, press your F10 key to make them show.)
  2. Select Command bar.
  3. Open the Tools menu near the top of your browser and select Compatibility View Settings.
  4. Select AA.com under "Websites you've added to Compatibility View." If you don't see "AA.com" listed, or if these steps don't help you resolve the problem, please make sure your computer has the latest Windows updates.
  5. Click Remove.
  6. At the bottom of the window, make sure that the box next to "Display all websites in Compatibility View" is not checked.
  7. Click Close. The page you're on will refresh and display in normal IE9/IE10 standards mode.

Note: If your Windows computer is administered by your organization, you may not be able to access Compatibility View Settings or remove AA.com from the list of affected domains. Please contact your administrator or helpdesk as they may have used a Windows group policy setting to set this parameter for you.
