Blog Comments Problem with IE9

There has been a problem using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) to view this blog for the last couple of weeks.  The problem started sometime mid January 2012.   IE9 failed to display pages that contain comments even in compatibility mode!

Google Chrome and other browsers would display the pages correctly!

I have changed the comment posting method to use a Pop Up window instead of being embedded in to the page.  That appears to fix it.

Microsoft have not done themselves any favours with IE9.  First I could not order my Pizza because the payment page would not display!  The tick box to remember my login to this blog can't be used with IE9 because it stops some of the edit icons appearing and now the comments.

I have preferred to use IE since about version 4 but now I find myself using Chrome more and more often!
