*Large* Follow Button in Internet Explorer 9 does not display @username


When I load up a large Follow Button (i.e. using data-size=“large”) the @username portion does not display in Internet Explorer 9. I was able to reproduce on https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons#follow (just create a follow button and select the “Large button” checkbox).

For further testing, here’s a jsFiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/4va6Y/
…my personal site: http://gibson.fm/follow-button-test.html
…and a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/vW6Zv.png


Apologies if it’s considered bad form to bump my own topic, but I believe this to still be an issue. I have tried to correct on my own with different configurations, but I’m not seeing any improvements.

Can anyone add anything or suggest a fix/workaround? Is this a bug?


I noticed this issue as well. I’ve also been able to replicate it in Firefox. Is there anyway to fix this?


I’ve reported this to the team and it will likely be resolved in the next batch of updates, hopefully this week.


We’ve made some updates to the buttons again this week; if this issue was affecting you, please let me know if it’s resolved for you now.


Thanks for replicating!


Thank you kindly for the speedy fix. I can confirm it is working in IE8 and IE9.


uhmm Now I don’t see the blank space as in @gbison’s screenshot, but I still can’t see the screen name with IE7, 8 and 9.


I am also having problems getting the @username to appear in IE8. I notice the last update, mentioned by @episod was 28 weeks ago. Is there another update in the works?
