So Microsoft decided to produce another piece of crap!! I’ve noticed my slider was ruined in the brand new garbage IE9 . I’ve made a quick search and discovered there are gonna be tons of problems with this (so called) “browser”. For instance take a look at the [removed] theme in IE9 : [link removed] Everything it’s broken: menu, teaser, titles in the footer and so on… Microsoft shoule be banned from producing browsers anymore!!!!!

Actually, nothing is broken. Only Cufon is not working. We had the same issue and after we have updated Cufon, it started working on IE9 as well.

I keep navigating and I’m amazed! 100% of the themes I checked here on theme forest have problems with IE9 ! Including themeforest website! (the mouse over preview doesn’t work, the main page it’s different from the other browser, looks like it shows the previous layout of themeforest). Most of the jquery dropdown menus does not work… So let’s have fun with IE9 :)

My new update is massively delayed because of IE9 …. now having to find ways to get things to work which worked fine in IE8 . I wonder if enough web devs got together we could sue Microsoft.

Google need to start making TV commercials to advertise their browser awell…

@web_gab I know it was not your intention to bash the theme you mentioned, but please refrain from calling out individual themes in the forums. Thanks.

Theme Name/Links removed.

I am really sorry about that. Indeed it wasn not my intention. I could give at least 20 other themes here that are broken in IE9 . Most of the themes I’ve checked here has small, medium or big issues in this “browser”. It’s just that I am so angry about this new garbage from Microsoft! I got the feeling this is going to be a big pain in the a** for most of the developers (for me it is already!).

fortunately we only had to replace cufon with the newer version and update mootools library… the one nice thing about ie9 is that it renders font face fonts very nice, better than anything i have seen on windows.

No worries :) I know your comment was actually in defense of the theme authors – just didn’t want anyone to be singled out here ;)

I couldn’t agree more with you that IE9 is going to be a huge frustration, and it’s a headache I’m not looking forward to dealing with myself :| Microsoft would be doing us all a huge favor if they just stopped building web browsers

IE9 broke Cufon for me, and the fixes I found on here don’t work :Z

It seems that’s about it though, at least for now.

IE fixes are sort of fun, you can bill for them =)
