I made my plot PNGs transparent. For some reason this works
in Firefox but not in Internet Explorer.
Anyone know why?

There is a known problem with transparent PNGs in IE, one of the reasons
that they haven't become as popular as you might have expected/hoped.
This article gives some background, although this was just one search
result I found :)
According to the article the problem appears where the palette size is
not 256. Perhaps there is a workaround which could be used in the png
output code? Or perhaps 256 colours is often not suitable - eg.
antialiasing is used in output (requiring more colours)?
