Office 365 - Browser Compatibility

A list of compatibility level of each of the major browsers plus a list of known browser issues with Office 365

Recommended Browsers

  • Best - Internet Explorer (IE) 9 or 10 and Firefox
  • OK - Chrome
  • Least - Safari and Internet Explorer 11

Known Issues

  • Outlook Web App (OWA) is like any other webpage; if it doesn’t load quickly or if changes do not appear immediately, refresh the browser.  (Alternative: Press F5) This often resolves the issue.
  • In Firefox, attaching files is inconsistent even within the same version.
  • IE 8 only displays in HTML/basic mode
  • IE 9/IE 10 - Copy and Paste may freeze/crash the browser 
  • Safari on Mac - When downloading and saving a file, adds %20 in place of spaces in the file's name (example: Safari Space Codes.docx becomes Safari%20Space%20Codes.docx). Remove %20 before saving.
