Can't change issue type from "Bug" using IE8

Recently upgraded to JIRA 5.0. When using IE 8 to create a new issue we can't save the issue as anything other than the type "Bug". After clicking or tabbing out of the issue type field it changes back to "Bug" regardless of what issue type was chosen.

Works fine in Google Chrome or Firefox.

Have you tried disabling Compatibility Mode in IE? There's some info on that here - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/Compatibility+Mode+related+problems+on+Internet+Explorer .

I thought I had tried that, but the link you provided had the info I need to fix the issue. Thanks!
