Take a look at this thread : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3112541/disable-button-working-on-click

It looks like your button is a submit button, and IE will still submit even if disabled.

So you need to verify in the click event of that button, if it is disabled, then return false.

try this then:
$("#toolbar").find(".inactive").button({ disabled: true }).click(function(e){e.preventDefault();});
