    Yes, that’s the issue that we’re aware of and working towards a fix.

    IE 8 is fine, it’s just not the most recent version.

    IE 9 is better browser by far, with better security and support for standard web coding practices.

    There’s no deadline to upgrade, but it’s recommended.

    I use IE 9 from time to time when I need to pull my PC out for debugging, but I prefer to use Safari 5 and Firefox 4 on my Mac.

    I’m on IE8 and not having any problems and I think it looks good.

    The Subscriptions hasn’t worked for me since I joined – I’ve always had to go to the tabs on the main WordPress page. Although I do wish My Subscriptions would just go straight there instead of the intermediate click required.

    I use Chrome and my dashboard is all askew – teeny font size, especially on the Stats page. I need a magnifying glass. Horrible.

    Not so keen on IE9. Under the pressure exerted by WP, I upgraded.

    Guess I’ll get used to it. LOL

    Is there an option to increase fonts size in the stats section of the new Dashboard? The font size has decreased after the upgrade yesterday. I do not wish to change my browser’s zoom-in/out settings for this.

    The font in the new-look dashboard is so much clearer to read at a glance. A significant advance, thanks.

    I have nothing displaying on the WordPress.com page, other than the sidebars and the tabs. Can’t see Freshly Pressed, Tags, Subscriptions etc.

    When I FIRST accessed the page, it was OK. Clicked on the Subscritions tab and that was OK – Clicked back to Feshly Pressed – and from that moment on, all display ceased.

    IE 9, Windows 7

    This new dashboard is a giant step back in terms of usability. In particular, I now have to click twice to log out. What a PITA!!!! One of the cardinal rules of usability is not to make your users have to click any more times than is absolutely necessary to accomplish a task. Please fix that soon!

    It appears the font has also changed. It is now smaller and harder to read. You had a well-designed and user-friendly dashboard. Why did you take this giant step backward? Have we WordPressers done something for which we must be collectively punished?

    Consider why this phrase became a cliche: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! You had a great dashboard. Please bring it back!

    If you push your Ctrl button with you + button then it’ll make the font bigger, Ctrl button and your – button to make it smaller.

    I will just upgrade later, when I am done with IE8.

    OK – I have to say the Subscriptions and other tabs on WordPress.com not working is starting to drive me a little batty. When is this likely to be fixed?

    Please do not tell me it is only IE9 – I do not like Firefox at all! :)

    @teamoyeniyi-It’s supposed to be fixed already, according to designsimply.

    Have you logged out, cleared your cache and cookies, closed your browser and then logged in again? Did you maybe try in a different browser? Is your flash player updated?

    Well, I certainly logged out when I updated to IE 9, but I’ll try again. I don’t have a different browser (I might be the only one who doesn’t).

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm – will try again and report back. It was like this before the update of the Dashboard – so the update is not the cause! I was rather hoping it would have fixed it though.

    Doesn’t appear to be fixed in my part of the world. Each time I access one blog from the Subscriptions tab, I have to close out of the browser to see anything again. Only works the once.

    This new dashboard is a giant step back in terms of usability. In particular, I now have to click twice to log out.

    What about people who deactivated Javascript? How do these people log out? Please think about returning an easy to click “Logout” link.

    Cheers
