Problems with IE and Portal for ArcGIS Web Apps

So we have just started experiencing problems with web apps through Portal for ArcGIS 10.5.1 where the header controller widget is failing to load.  The error I am seeing is:

create [themes/FoldableTheme/widgets/HeaderController/Widget] error:Error: Access is denied.

at postCreate (https://xxx/themes/FoldableTheme/widgets/HeaderController/Widget.js?wab_dv=2.1:84:11)

This is only happening on IE, on Firefox it works fine.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?  I've also noticed that this problem is possibly related to a specific build of IE (11.0.9600.19266), we have tried on a couple of other versions of IE (notably 1.0.9600.19236) and this problem does not occur.

IE causes a lot of problems with GIS online.  We do ALL of our work in Portal via Chrome.

Hi Robert,

Indeed and I would if I could but unfortunately Chrome is not permitted where we are, and although Firefox is available, IT have done something to it to make it unworkable!

Sort of thankfully I think I've tracked down the source of the problem (or rather a colleague of mine did), it seems that it's a known issue as per this page:

Hopefully this might help others who come across this problem...
