I'm having the exact same problem, but this fix didn't work.

I concede though that I am in the midst of writing a new site, so at first, I thought the problem was only with my coding. I haven't confirmed if the problem is mine or IE9 yet.

Usually I work under Chrome and all my buttons function fine. At first, I had a problem because I had never added multiple buttons to a single page before, so when I first added a second button to the page, I realized the problem was that my buttons weren't unique. Spent a week figuring that out and now all my new pages work fine on Chrome, each button having a unique id (but the same class).

Then I got a new computer this week, Windows 7 Home 64 bit with IE9, Dell. So I tested my site using IE9. On the page where I have only one button, it works fine. On the page where I have multiple buttons, although they are unique, they aren't being recognized by IE9. I click and nothing happens. Yet it works fine under Chrome.

At least that's my interpretation of the problem right now. Maybe somebody else knows more...

I am using a line similar to this:

<a id="_post_btt_109" class="button" href="javascript:void(0)">Post It!</a>

Is the void cancelling the action in IE9??

I have found IE9 to be very finicky about where your JavaScript resides in your page. Try moving your JavaScript to the bottom of your code and see if that helps, especially in the case where a script does not work when a page is first loaded, but then it does work after a refresh.
