          Edit your user profile in Moodle. In the upper right of the form is a "Show Advanced" button. This is the button that I am referring to and that does not toggle its text when clicked in IE.

          The patch seems to work on IE7 as well.

          We tested this issue and found that it exist not only in IE6 and IE7, but also in Safari on either PC or Mac (that's why I changed the summary of this bug). We tested the patch and it was working fine, so I'm committing the patch into 1.8, 1.9, and head. Thanks! Ticket closed...

          I am using 1.9.3 (Build 20081015) and my users still report the "Advanced" button on the Edit Profile page still doesn't toggle in IE 6 or 7. I have tested this myself, and have found that it doesn't work in IE, but does work fine FF 3.

          This bug is shown as closed, but is it really?

          We are having the same issue still in IE 1.9.3+ - the Show Advanced button doesn't work in IE. Bug is closed?
