Attempting to install packages in Umbraco BackOffice on IE (up to and including latest version) fails with the following popup message when you click on the "Install Package" button from the Details page: "invalid hostname".
This is caused by a bug in IE not setting the hostname or protocol attributes on a created "a" element in the /Umbraco/developer/packages/proxy.html file. The fix is to add a seeming redundant line to the code changing this:
var parser = document.createElement('a'); parser.href = window.location.search.substring(1);
var parser = document.createElement('a'); parser.href = window.location.search.substring(1); parser.href = parser.href;
This is mentioned on a comment on the originally referenced gist here: https://gist.github.com/jlong/2428561#gistcomment-1461205
