    I've been troubleshooting an Asp.Net web app and I'm fairly certain my problem is that I'm losing a session variable whenever I run the app in Internet explorer 10 or 11. (Chrome and Firefox work perfectly.) I'm seeing vague hints around the web that Ajax calls could be a problem but nothing definitive. 

    The app itself makes use of Telerik Ajax controls.  The session variable is set in one page (which has little more than a RadButton and a couple of RadTextBoxes)  and then a Response.Redirect call is made to a second page (which is mostly one big RadGrid), at which time the variable is null again.  The two pages have a master page in common.

    Has anyone else had this problem?

    Found it.  My dev web side had a base url that contained an underscore.  The first I've ever heard of this problem.  

    (Documented here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316112  and here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2874078/asp-net-session-sessionid-changes-between-requests )

    Still have to test for other compatibility problems....
