When browsing the Comments screen in IE8, the Reply action link doesn't work. It jumps the browser down to the bottom of the screen, but a Comment Reply area never appears.

IE8 works OK for me.

Do you have any plugins that use JavaScript in the admin area and could cause this? Try without plugins to see if it still appears.

Tested again in IE8 with current revision (r11452) and I saw no problem. Closing as worksforme.

Tested with a clean trunk (r11748) and still seeing this problem happening in IE8. Works in tests for FF/Safari on Mac and FF/Chrome/IE7 on PC. Problem only happens in IE8. When "Reply" is clicked, it jumps to the bottom of the page. If the last "Reply" is clicked, it jumps to the top of the page. The comment box never appears. Replying to comments directly from posts works though.

This seems to be theme specific. Re-tested with several themes including the default and couldn't reproduce it. The comment-replay JS depends on some DOM elements and HTML IDs being present on the page and can easily be replaced with modified version when themes need to change them.

Just to clarify, the problem is happening on wp-admin/edit-comments.php

I just re-tested on r12136, and I don't see the comment reply box when I click on Reply in IE8:

OK, now it happens for me too! :-)

Confirmed for r12136 with Win7 and IE8 on three different setups, each using a different theme: Sandbox, Thematic, and Carrington.

I also tested with the default theme and with all plugins deactivated. The issue occurs with all combinations.

(In [12139]) Fix IE8 reply to comments from admin fade in/out, decrease comment undo timeout, hide comment reply when moving to trash, fixes #9896
