Hi Rambanam,

Thanks for the reply.

PFA the compactibility view.I have tried disabling the view as per the link provided. But still i am getting the same alignment issue on IE8.Please have the look at the screenshot whether i am doing something wrong.



try the following solution

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. In Tools > Internet Options, select the Security tab, then the Intranet zone and click the Sites button
  3. Uncheck every box in the form shown
  4. Restart the browser

Hi Rambanam,

Thanks for the answer.

Compatibility issue got resolved. But for my 3rd query i am not sure that will be the compatibility issue. Can you check from your side if its possible.



i checked on my jira6.0 instance, it is same as in your screen shot!

ok Rambanam if i am right there is some alignment issue right. I have raised this query with atlassian support. Is there any other solution to resolve those issue.




You can try to enable XMLHTTP on your IE tools advanced tab.

Also, please disable your compatibily mode on IE.
