IE and Edge Report error: This content cannot be displayed in a frame

None of our reports on a Power BI report server can be seen from Internet Explorer nor Edge. Firefox and Chrome are working fine, we always get This content cannot be displayed in a frame error. We thought, that this might be because of some elements with the reports, but it happens even with blank report. 

When I click the Suggested link Open this content in a new window the report opens just fine. 

This was tested on multiple computers

Any Ideas how to overcome this issue when the only supported (and therefore allowed) browser in the company is IE and Edge?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi @kuceraja,


After installing the Power BI report server, do you always can't use IE or Edge to view report? Does this issue happen to all the reports? Which IE or Edge version do you run? Please try the latest version and test again. 


I would suggest you post a thread in IE forum ( as well to find if there is any specific settings can cause this issue. 


Best Regards,

I think they are pretty new. 

The issue is with all the reports and I don't think it has to do with anythink in the reports as we see it even in blank report. This is the only Power BI report server we have installed, so I cannot test others.
