Viewing localStorage in Internet Explorer - Unable to get name / value pairs


I understand that the question of how to view localStorage in Internet Explorer has been answered multiple times. This is not my question.

View local storage content in IE

How to view Localstorage in IExplorer 10? [Duplicate]

I did:

  • Open IE Developer Tools (F12)
  • Go to Console
  • enter in localStorage

This shows me that there is an object called localStorage that IE is aware of. However, I cannot get the name / value pairs as I can from Chrome.

This gives me a way to traverse the JavaScript object for localStorage, but I tried to expand all nodes and cannot find the name / value pairs (see screen capture).

How can I get to ngStorage-x

and ngStorage-y

from Internet Explorer?

Thanks in advance for your help!
