Notes:
  • Even if you use Microsoft (R) Internet Explorer and use of ActiveX is enabled, there are some situations (listed below) where you may not be able to use ActiveX. In these situations you need to force ActiveX off.
    • You use a mobile device and it takes a lot of time to download ActiveX.
    • ActiveX cannot be installed on the client because of limited user rights (Users Group).
    To deactivate ActiveX by force:
    1. Start Microsoft (R) Internet Explorer
    2. Click the [Tools] menu.
    3. Click the [Internet Options] command.
    4. Click [Languages] on the [General] page.
    5. Click [Add] on the [Language Preference] window.
    6. Enter "ax-no" in the [User defined] field in the [Language] window and click [OK].
    7. If less than three languages are defined, check that "ax-no" is the last item. If you define more than four languages, click [Move up] and define "ax-no" as the third item.
  • The [Remove] attachments button is not displayed in browsers other than Internet Explorer.
    Even if you are using Internet Explorer, the [Remove] button is not displayed if ActiveX is disabled.
  • If you add attachments by drag and drop and drop them outside of ActiveX control, dropped files are displayed in the screen and input content is lost. Be sure to drop files inside of ActiveX control.
