When I click a different one, nuttin' happens.

    -Doc,

    We're sorting out some issues, mainly in IE. Which browser/version are you running?

    Bringing up an old post, but haven't been able to update mine. FF18/IE8 on XP, or on my L920/IE. Haven't tried at home yet though (Win8/IE10).

    Please let me know about Win8/IE10 and I'll give the low down to the tech team. Thanks!

    Wow, strange. Links and buttons are live and working here on my PC at home on the passport page. Don't see how it would work on here but not on my phone. May be something for 'em to look into?

    So it's only the Lumia 920 in IE that is giving you trouble now?

    krystea to clarify you can't update the avatar? Or when you do it doesn't change?

    Non-Updating avatar (once uploaded)
    We've had intermittent problems with permissions on uploaded avatar's preventing propagation through the network and to the cdn. As an experiment can you try uploading the avatar again (or a different one) freshly rather than reselecting a current avatar?

    Recent IE Issue
    We dealt with an issue recently where some installations of IE9 would render the passport pages in non-IE9/IE-Edge mode. We think we've deal with the failure there though I don't think this is what you were experiencing as it results in a very specific message.

    Which version of IE is your work PC. Strange to FF on that list too we're pretty solid on that platform.



    Regards

    Steph
