For IE, you need to specify !DOCTYPE for position:fixed to work properly.
Hi there  amiDgreat ,
try

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">

as the first 4 lines (the doctype prevents it going into quirks mode).

If you use XHTML instead of HTML then position:fixed is definitely work. On starting of your HTML page you have to add

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

OR <!doctype html> in first line on page
