Internet Explorer 11 won't let me log into a web site

I have an online tool that I use for my business, and for some reason, I can no longer log into this web site using MSIE11 but works fine on MSIE10. At first I thought it must be the new "Enhanced Protect Mode" so I disabled that and rebooted, but I still cannot log in. This is huge bummer for me because I need this for my small business. Right now its not a big problem, and I suppose I could install Google Chrome as a work around - but quite frankly, Chrome is... I don't like it.


The web site in question runs ASPX and JavaScript. Why does it work in IE10 but not IE11?


EDIT:

I turned on: show all errors in the advance tab and get this:
