I am using the Google translate button on my web site. It works fine in Firefox, Safari, and of course Chrome but not in IE8. If i click on the bloodshot eye in the status bar it tells me that cookies are blocked. So I click on 'Settings" in the dialog box click on "Advanced" and select "Override Automatic Cookie Handling"  and "Accept First Party Cookies" and "Accept Third Party Cookies" and "Always Allow Session Cookies"; that doesn't fix it. I then clicked on "Sites" and entered the domain and the "Allow" button; still no fix. Protected mode is also off. Can anyone tell me how to get this to work for IE8? Attached is the code for the Google translate button.
<div id="google_translate_element"></div>
function googleTranslateElementInit()
new google.translate.TranslateElement({pageLanguage: 'en'},'google_translate_element');
<script src=""></script>
