Is it my programming or is this normal for Internet Explorer?

I have a user comment section on my site. I use ajax and php. It has been tested and works perfect using Firefox and Safari. I type a comment and click submit. It says thank you and the comment is stored in a database and immediately displays in a comment list under the comment input, thanks to ajax. When I test it with Internet Explorer, everything works except the comment does not immediately display. If I refresh the browser page, it still does not display. If I exit and restart Internet Explorer the comment will display in the list.

Is there something in my programming I must do to make Internet Explorer work like the other browsers, or is this just the way Internet Explorer works for everyone? Thanks.

I'm sorry. My question is a little misleading. I am not looking for someone to troubleshoot my code. I am looking for someone who has experience with Internet Explorer peculiarities and might recognize this Internet Explorer behavior as normal and to be expected.

My code is on multiple pages and is much too long to post here. My code works perfect in every other respect and in other browsers too, which leads me to think this is an Internet Explorer peculiarity.

I am not allowed to send a link yet because the site sits behind a password protected wall.

I tested Experts Exchange comments window using Internet Explorer. The results suggest programming can be tailored to better accommodate Internet Explorer.
