This is caused by IE8 not supporting ::before and ::after pseudo-elements. Using just :before makes the icon visible, but the element needs to float to not break the line, and top margin needs to be adjusted to keep the same visual style.

Thank you for the report and patch. It looks like your patch moves the close icon for tags in the editor up, so this needs to be fixed. There are also a few more ::befores in dashboard.css.

Oh, I totally skipped those other selectors. I think the new patch fixes the issue, but it needs a second pair of eyes on it again.

28082.diff regenerates the patch from root, which fixes the issue for me in IE8, see ie8_dismiss_with_patch.png.

In 29314:

IE8 doesn't support ::before and ::after pseudo-elements. Replace them with :before and :after.
