when you open e.g. a text element in IE 9 or IE Edge the RTE won't load and a JS error appears.
See the attached screenshot from the current TYPO3 demo system.

Also in the newest TYPO3 version the problem exists.

i cannot reproduce this with IE Edge and Windows 10
tested with master (8.2.0) and 7.6.5

wich windows do you use?
can you check if you don't block some javascript?

I do get the same JS errors in IE9.

At least for IE9 it seems to be a problem with Placeholders.js. By removing the minified javascript in Resources/Public/JavaScript/Contrib/placeholders.jquery.min.js the RTE loads again.

I can totally relate.

Here's my version of the file (see attached).

First, there seems to be a problem with jQuery not beeing loaded properly, so I made sure everything was right by only executing it once the document was ready (this might be too much but anyway) and then I used TYPO3.jQuery to be sure to have no conflit.

Additionally I updated jQuery to 2.2.4.

PS: everything happens beginning on line 555. The major fix though is that also the line 563 has been improved to support browsers that do not have Placeholders.
