IE is one of the 3 browsers on my desktop. I use it for comparison with the other 2 and also it is the one my wife prefers. I have IceDragon currently set as default, if my small bug eventually gets corrected it will be Dragon.
I think IE 9 and 10 or not affected. I had upgraded IE every version till now. Cannot afford a new PC nor Operating System so I could not upgrade from IE8 to 9.
Here is the link with the info I would rather have a fix than a work around !
