Sorry, it took me some time to get organized and find time to work on this problem.
i have NOOOOO idea whether this will help your situation, but i DID discover what i think solves the non-displaying SELECT list problem in IE. Using the IE8 JS debugger, controls.js fails at line ~841: this._controls.editor.update(''); because at line ~766, the SELECT object is created by the native createElement method, but is not Prototype extended: var list = document.createElement('select'); list.name = this.options.paramName; list.size = 1; this._controls.editor = list; i changed the last line shown above to: this._controls.editor = $(list); and IE started displaying the list. i couldn't tell you why Firefox manages to get by that little slip. i did try out your test pages and saw some of the incorrect behaviors. Unfortunately, i can't really dig deep right now to help with that. i wish you luck, and i'll post the fix above at Scriptaculous to On Jan 29, 12:03 pm, Gunter Sammet <gunter.sam...@gmail.com> wrote: > On Jan 29, 6:56 am, "joe t." <thooke...@gmail.com> wrote: > > > i'm using unmodified 1.8.2 and the IPCE works fine with Firefox 3.
