When I e-file a document my browser just sits there and nothing happens, why?
As browsers update and change, a website you're visiting or interacting with may not look or act as it did before. Images might not appear, menus might be out of place, and text could be jumbled together. These can be caused by a compatibility problem between Internet Explorer and the web site. It is recommended that you enable compatibility viewing when using the Court’s web site. The Chrome browser also has changed.
