|Summary:||More Options drop-down menu doesn't work|
The drop-down menu on S2 styles for choosing other accounts (LJ/OpenID/anonymous/etc.) doesn't work in IE8. I've tried on multiple different journals and communities, and the result is the same: the drop-down menu for choosing accounts/anonymous doesn't drop down (it's stuck on my LJ account), and clicking "Other user" just takes me to the top of the page. Below is the error message I received on one page. The line numbers change based on what journal/community I'm on, but the character numbers are always the same (first is 25, second is 9).

Thank you for your report. The issue with changing user login types has been forwarded to LiveJournal developers, who will investigate the problem and take the appropriate actions to resolve it. You may wish to watch the lj_releases community [http://lj_releases.livejournal.com/profile], where a fix will be announced once it has been implemented. I apologize for the inconvenience.

A month later, this is still broken. Any chance of getting it fixed? Ever?

Unfortunately, we don't have an estimate on when it will be resolved.
