Hi Greg,

Yes - we're having the same issue. As you say, before we discovered the root cause it was driving me potty!

Cheers,

Luke

Maybe you are experiencing the same issue we have?

IE has a setting that forces compatibility mode when looking at Intranet sites. It catches us all the time because staff find bugs that customers can't see. Officially we consider compatibility mode unsupported because it sucks arse (the technical term of course).

There are ways to code around it apparently : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2518256/override-intranet-compatibility-mode-ie8 but we still just tell staff to turn it off (one of the comments further down).

I have been trying to get the service desk to turn it off with a group policy, but no luck to-date.

Yes - but the issue is css rather than js related...
