There are certain pages in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration that will throw an "Error on Page" error when you are browsing with Internet Explorer 8 and you try to perform an action.

For example, when trying to edit a user profile synchronization connection:

edit

You get:

ErrorOnPage

To get around this you can either use a different browser, or from the page that's causing the error you can do the following:

  • Launch Internet Explorer 8 and browse to the page that's throwing the error
  • Press F12 to open the Developer Tools
  • Set the Browser Mode: to IE7
  • Close the Developer Tools and try again

Browser Mode
