Hello swissadb,

The final released version of IE8 is compatible with Gmail.

In Gmail, click on Older Version link at top of page. Then test if contacts work.  If it works, then some external program is interfering with the new version of Gmail interface or a Google Lab is interfering.

Hope this helps!

Seems to be a compatibility issue

"If you know anything about how gmail code is written, you would know that they write drivers for specific browsers -- they don't have a one code fits all approach, which is why it works well. And the gmail folks have said that they will have it setup for IE8 when IE8 codebase stops changing so much. Which is what the RC is all about. So soon they will start caring what the build system's unit tests, integration test, etc say for IE8. Even supporting Chrome required changes since it's version of webkit is so off from Sarari's. "

Unfortunately, it still does not work, I have now removed MS Explorer 8 and turned back to version 7 which works fine. Thanks anyway.
