Windows 8, IE & Comment Boxes

So I bought a new laptop this week - I'll post a pic of it later - but I'm having problems using the comment boxes on theO using Internet Explorer. When I open comments on older posts, I can see them all fine, although rather than a pop-up box it opens as an entirely new screen. But when I want to leave a comment in a comment box that has no other comments, its just a blank white screen with no means of leaving a comment.

Has anyone else running Windows 8 had similar problems?


For now, fixed the problem by running Firefox, which I generally prefer over IE anyway. Comment boxes are working normally.
