Javascript Menus Disappear in IE9

My office uses a few sites which include javascript menus in a left column with body content filling the remainder of the screen (see attached screenshot from IE8 for an example).  In IE9 however, the menus in the left column disappear entirely.  I've tried using compatibility view and adding sites to the local intranet zone, but neither helped.  (Note that these are not sites I maintain so cannot make code adjustments - rather I'm looking for a browser fix.)

Other than uninstalling IE9 (which I've done), is there any way to configure IE9 to restore these menus?  Thanks!

Just click the "compatibility view" button near the address bar and you should be able to see just like u saw it in previous versions of IE.

Thank you, but as I mentioned in the original message, this is not the solution.  I have checked "Display all websites in Compatibility View" and still have the problem (see attached screenshot of the same page rendered by IE9).
