Wordpress Custom Posts Types do not work in Internet Explorer - 404 Shown

I've created a custom post type in Wordpress and all seems to be working fine.

Everything is perfect in Firefox

However in Internet Explorer, Chrome and Safari - I get a 404 page instead.

Try this link in FF and then in IE - http://www.financeforindustry.org/event/southern-manufacturing-2014/

You get different results....

I've trawled every forum looking for a solution for this, but cannot resolve it.

Code is attached...

Does the custom post type have its own template in the theme or are you using single.php?

It does have it's own template file.

We've removed that - no change
We've removed single.php - no change
 - This then just give us the standard "No Posts" message from index.php

Damnit.  So much for the easy fix.

Okay, I'll try to test from here in IE and see if the console gives me something.  If not, will load your code on a test site...

Actually, I get Page Not Found on all browsers now.  Did you change something?

Jason, it's all back to not working again now - was trying a different permalink settings.

Currently set to /%category%/%postname%/

So still not working in IE but fine in Firefox

Also noticed it doesn't work on Chrome nor Safari


So - What does Firefox do to my page code that the other browsers do not (or vice versa)
