"Old thread, but I thought this may help someone.

Windows 7 Pro / IE 11

I had the exact same issue (http://localhost works in Chrome, and worked in IE too). Tried various things like updating hosts file entry, disable ipv6 in network settings etc.. nothing worked.

Finally fixed by adding http://localhost to trusted site in IE Settings Internet Options>Security>Trusted sites. Make sure to un check the ""Require Server verification (https).. "" option when adding the trusted site address."
