Have seen some plugins for customizing the admin side, just thought I'd ask as a problem solving route.
Using version 2.8.6 and IE8 one can't reply to a comment from the admin. Thought they might have fixed that in 2.9.1. Evidently not.
What happens if you tell IE8 to use compatibility mode? Not a solution I like, but maybe it will solve your immediate problem.
There's a conditional statement in the head of the admin code source to use a different stylesheet if IE7. = the coders did not take the time to make this cross-browser compatible using a single stylesheet.
