Unable to load Federation Metadata URL in CRM 2011 IFD Setup

When configuring an Internet Facing Deployment of CRM 2011 after your initial configuration of ADFS to verify it is working correctly you’ll need to enter the URL of the Federation Metadata in a browser to see the resulting XML content.

https://sts.yourdomain.com/federationmetadata/2007-06/federationmetadata.xml

More than likely this ends up being Internet Explorer, and if it is you might end up with a blank screen.

The easy solution is to change the Compatibility Mode and you should see the XML if you have configured everything correctly.
