I can access my cam's live feed through Surveillance Pro (WIN10) and the Android app.
Internet Explorer 11 is a component of Windows 10 and has not been discontinued. It's lifecycle is the same as Windows 10 which currently ends in 2025.

Suggestion:
Since Surveillance Pro works for you, go to
Device Configuration/Network/Connection for your camera. Take the IP address and HTTP Port number there and use them in IE. In IE, the format is IP address:Port number. You need to be using the 2018-02-06 camera firmware. Also use that IP address and HTTP Port number in Synology.
If that does not work, you may have blocking being done in your router or some firewall, or some other problem.

I think I've figured out my problem!

I could not successfully open my ports. This is because my internet provider uses Carrier Grade NAT protocol. As a result, you can't open ports unless you have a static IP. I will get mine in a few days.
