Editor stuck loading: IE8 Answered

A picture says a thousand words (to quote millions of other people :))

So the problem is is that in Internet explorer 8, when you go to edit your instructable (excuse my sad little attempt at an 'ible in the background, I wanted to try out the editor) The whole editor is greyed out, and a loading bar is displayed indefinitly (2 hours in) I have tryed reloading the page, and it is still greyed out.

The obvious soulution would be to upgrade to Chrome or Firefox <3, but that is not possible :(

Hello.

I understand that you have issues with installing new software, but are you able to upgrade to IE9?

Unfortunately not. The admins won't upgrade as modern browsers contain private browsing features.

Ugggh. I'm sorry to hear that. Rest assured, this will be brought up, but there's a lot of other stuff going on, and I don't know how high older browsers are on our coding priority list. I feel really bad telling you that, but it's the truth.

Hanging onto old technologies does nobody any good. Hopefully we'll fix it soon though!

I know that Internet Explorer 8 compatibility is low priority, but please fix this, I spend most of my 'ibles time on IE8
