Upgraded to latest Confluence 4.3. Everything looks good can add task lists and assign tasks but the main menu "inbox" for tasks and notifications nothing loads. Just spinning circle "wait". We have our users coming from our Jira instance on the same server.
Update: See answer below. This is only a problem in IE8. Works fine in IE9.
Thanks for reporting this problem. I've raised a bug report on our issue tracker: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-26648
If you like, you can watch the issue to be informed of progress, and possibly to help the development team with additional information about your environment.
I am having the same issue as well. Since IE8 is our corporate standard and not likely to change for at least a year I can't roll out this new version of confluence. Atlassian's support of IE8 (which is still a corporate standard in many, many organizations) seems to be lacking, I've had similiar issues in JIRA 5.0
We are having the same issue using IE8. The only way I have found to get around it is to access the confluence instance using the IP address of the server (e.g. 18.104.22.168:8091) instead of the server name (e.g. WEBSERVE:8091). I'm not a networking person so I have no reason why this makes a difference.
BTW, this make no difference in Chrome or Firefox. It just works.
If IE8 Is running in IE7 compatibility mode and cannot be disabled then adding the following to the document header might help. I'm not sure what other problems this might cause, but it certainly helped me solved some problems I had with my own web applications that use jQuery.

same problem with v4.3.7. However we are not planning to upgrade to the v5.
Could you give a patch to fix it within the v4.3.7? or publish a new v4.3.8?
This is quite urgent and critical for us as all our employees are using IE8.
Thank you in advance
