Microsoft Explorer 9 Browser Problems with RFF

I don't know why, but several people have reported problems using the new Microsoft Explorer 9 browser on the RFF Website.

Reported problems include seeing black on black lettering using the standard skin, and encountering a 10 character minimum error warning, even when posting more than 10 characters.

IF you are encountering new difficulties visiting RFF after upgrading to E9, my solution is:

Switch to Firefox or the Google Chrome browsers.

Same here with E9, black on black lettering that wasn't recognise as a message anyway, couldn't even send a note to RFF 'head office' to ask about the problems. So I deleted it.

As they say, only benchmark for IE is how fast it opens http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters.

Stephen:

IE9 will try to switch to "Compatibility Mode" in some cases with some sites (it's turned on by default; you have to manually turn it off, but there's an alternative --read further). I've had this problem in the past (well, 95% of Web Developers in the world have had a problem with IE since its inception; IE is a curseword in most circles).

Anyway, you may want to look at the CSS (the "skins") and see if it has some "specific" IE6/IE7 entries and I'd do a Google Search on how to tweak those for IE9 (usually the ones for IE8 work).

Also, inside the Head tags, along with the Meta tags, I'd add this (it will have to go in each of the live Header file for your template/skin or whatever the setup is in vBulletin):

I don't see it in your site right now. I recommend you try this.

Fellow RFF member: I respect your bandwidth by not posting images larger than 800px on the longest side, and by removing image in a quote.
Together we can combat bandwidth waste (and image scrolling).

Even Microsoft developers don't know why
