Strange Behaviour on Internet Explorer

The other day I recieved an email from a user who found himself looking at a map where half of the locations were editable and half were not. When the user switched to Firefox it worked fine. I had no idea what was causing this until I sat down last night and did some serious investigation.

Well it turns out that Internet Explorer was saving the user's last view of the map. So a number of the locations were saved in "View" mode. When the user created a few new locations these were saved in "Edit" mode, creating the discrepancy.

To make a long story short, we fixed the bug. Now Internet Explorer will not save this information so you will always have the most up-to-date information. (Note: you will have to close and reopen your browser to see this change)

My apologies to anyone who was left confused by this bug. If you see anything like this in the future do not hesitate to contact me.
