Early versions of Maximo 6 don’t support IE 8 and with Microsoft pushing it on us, it’s hard to ignore it. To fix the navigation issue in IE 8, follow these steps:
Go to this directory:
And open the “menu.js” file with notepad or something and find the line:
opener = popObj.openermenu;
Add a VAR statement to the front of the command so it looks like the following
VAR opener = popObj.openermenu;
Replace the existing file in the .EAR by either rebuilding or using a zip tool to open and replace the file.
Thanks to Jake for the tip!
