I am working on a site and came up with an issue when using it in Internet Explorer 9

If you click anywhere on the screen in IE9 the screen goes black almost.

Any ideas would be appreciated

I've been noticing this myself on several sites the last few days. I suggested migrating this to the WebApps stack site, as this seems to be a site-side compatibility issue with IE9 and not a problem with your computer, maybe they'll have som ebetter info. :) It seems to be because of old(er) implementations of Lightbox. Hitting the 'broken page' button in IE 'fixes' it as far as I can tell. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Apr 21 '11 at 13:54

There appears to be a java error on the page regarding image loading. I suspect IE9 is handling that error differently than other browser. When you put the page in Compatability mode, it appears to work fine.
