thanks for your post, and sorry for the trouble.
I can confirm that everything works in Chrome and Firefox, and that it breaks in IE 8 (I don't have an IE 9 to test right now.)
In IE 8, I get this JS error:
Message: A security problem occurred.
I don't know what that means or where it's coming from really, by my assumption is that IE just stops processing the JS after this error occurs, which is why the sorting and filtering functions for the table are not loaded.
Do you see such a script error in your IE 9?
