Thanks for the reply! Feels good to know I'm not alone
Unfortunately IE8 won't work for me as I'm loading an iframe w/ pretty complex js in it. The iframe loads perfectly in IE9/IE9 mode and IE8/IE8 mode. With IE9/IE8 however, it will not load. So if I set it to document mode IE8 it will run in Browser mode IE9 and document mode IE8 (Referred to as IE9/IE8 above).
I'll just have to do without the settings for a while, which is pretty ok I guess.
Thanks again and I'll keep you posted if I find a solution
