i Have had this for ages and always just changed the compatibility mode but eventually took the time to find a solution...
Sometime you click on a button or trying to save an item and nothing happens....You press F12 change the Browser Mode to IE 9 and it is working
Amazes me how Google Chrome can work better on Microsoft's own products...
If it was not for SharePoint i would have never used this virus called Internet Explorer.
Seems there is 2 solutions:
Go to Tools, Compatibility View Settings.
Here you ccan choose "Display all Websites in Compatibility View" but then there might be some sites saying you must upgrade to a newer browser.
So add your SharePoint url to the list if you don't want all sites to be viewed in compatibility view.
There is a hotfix for this to but i have not tested it as yet.
