Cannot create a table in Confluence

Hey, mates :)

We're having trouble with creating simple tables in Confluence.

We use Confluence 4.0.7 and when I Edit a page and then click Table button all I can see is a black box changing it's size not a regular table. It occurs only with Internet Explorer 8 that we are mostly using (tried with Firefox and Chrome and all good).

I added a small pic of it too. Maybe anyone know if it's some disharmony between the versions of Confluence and IE or if it is some kind of other problem?

Thanks :)

Confluence 4.0.x supports Internet Explorer 8.

I'd be tempted to reset Internet Explorer to make sure there's nothing nasty messing with your browser.

Tried this too, didn't help.

Does this behavior in showing a black box occurs only in creating tables? Because there is a known bug similar to this issue as we see here:

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-24299

This only occurs for IE8, so try to disable the documenation theme and see if it works.

That's the weird part that it occurs only when klicking Table option. Paragraph, Insert etc options are displayed correctly.
And it seems that this problem appears to all the people in our company who use IE8. With IE9 and 10 all fine.

Our users are experiencing the same problem with IE8 on Windows XP using Confluence 4.2.1. Is there a fix for this?
