    Attempted recreation of IE9/Win7 report

    I'm using IE9 in Windows 7 and trying to repeat the experience others have noted.

    Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0)

    So far I've clicked the Green "New Thread" button and all's fine.

    Clicking the Submit Reply span the "connected" icon for longer than I'd expect but then the post happened.

    Clicking the green "Reply to Thread" gave an hourglass but no "connecting" spinner.

    Clicking "Reply with Quote" gave a spinner, a long pause and this window.

    Clicking "Reply to Thread" twice gets the spinner and then the reply edit window to appear. Just clicking once, which ought to do that, leaves the system with no spinner but with an hourglass.

    Interesting that behavior can be so varied.

    Safari, Chrome, FireFox and Opera all behave fine.

    IE9 is doing something in the background. I can see its little wheels turning, but can't tell what it is doing.
    I am going to set up my Wireshark and take a look at the exchanges going on.

    vBulletin 4.0.4 Patch Level 2. I'm aware the current release is 4.2.0 Patch Level 2.

    I'm checking whether the addition of Silverlight changes the behaviour.

    And no, it hasn't. Now for the Compatibility Mode.

    The only exception I've seen so far is having to click a second time on Reply To Thread or Edit Post to get the edit window up. It's easy to see the first click's had no effect because no spinner appears by the Tab title.

    Here's another site walking the same road this month: Problems & Help [Archive] - Woodwork Forums.

    I'm still of the opinion that the problem is limited, on ForumGarden, if we ignore speed issues which I can't see as being server-related.

    Internet Explorer 9 has a Tab label for each Tab open in a window. Normally it has the green-on-white FG favicon next to the thread title.

    Asking the server to do something by clicking a control either turns the FG favicon into a spinner or it fails and (if you move the mouse pointer) shows a mouse-hourglass. On every occasion when the FG has failed to turn into a spinner, clicking the control a second time has made it do so and the action has completed correctly.

    Now, why it is that Internet Explorer 9 refuses to pass the request to the server on the first click but then does it on the second, I have at the moment no clue at all though I suspect it's a matter of where the mouse focus has gone to. A coding change in the FG page might well get it to go away. No change at all at the server end is going to make a difference because until the spinner spins, the server is in happy ignorance that the control's been pressed.

    Who can see anything different, if they're using Internet Explorer 9? What have I failed to describe in this thread that you're experiencing? Check what you say before you post, please, or I'll be chasing phantoms.
