Hi,

Can someone explain me why addons are disabled when opening a pinned site in IE9 ? I really don't see the point.

Thank

FYI...

Q: Kudos, pinned sites is just fantastic - with one exception, however: All add-ons seem to be disabled when opening a pinned site!
A: The reason Add-ons don't run on pinned sites is that we wanted to remove any non-site specific extension points (like toolbars and BHOs) from altering the original browsing experience created by the site.

I see you keep suggesting me to go back to IE8 :) I was just asking the question about IE 9, I wanted to know if someone have much information to share about this. But apparently no one knows.

Thank anyway.
