Infopath Form will not open in Browser

I recently updated an infopath form that has been opening fine in the user browser. I changed a couple of the data connections and updated the workflow emails. The form will no longer render in the browser. I am not receiving any error messages, it just opens in the infopath client.

Here is what I have done so far:

1. republished as a content type to the document library
2. re-enabled enterprise features on entire farm
3. checked central admin > application management > configure form services > allow browser enabled forms and render in browser are checked
4. checked form library > advanced > display as web page is checked
5. ran the design checker in infopath > no errors reported

Why is the form opening in the client?

Hi,
Has the InfoPath form template been browser-enabled (again) before published to the SharePoint Form Library?

Yes. Before publishing from infopath, the form has been internet enabled.

Looks like there are actually some authentication issues in the log file. The issue was resolved with this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926642

It wasn't obvious until I checked the form on another user's machine and they actually had errors.
