Jquery issue between IE and FF

I have a checkbox that enables/disables a select menu and textarea which works fine but
I need this code to retain settings if a "Back" button is clicked on the POST page. FF retains the enabled settings but IE disables the form elements again which causes the input to be lost even though the checkbox is still checked. How do I make IE see that the form elements should still be enabled in jquery?

$(document).ready(function () { 
 $("#add_room").click(function () {

Try this:

$(document).ready(function () {

 $("#add_room").click(function () {  
    addRoomEvent(this.checked, true);

 addRoomEvent( $("#add_room").is(':checked'), false );


function addRoomEvent(isChecked, setFocus)
   $("#room_type_additional").attr("disabled",!isChecked) ;
   $("#s_requests_add").attr("disabled",!isChecked) ;
