On the newsletters page the "show N more [category] sites" is not working. I click on it and the blue bar with that text goes away but it does not show the rest of the choices. I am using IE9 on a Win7 box.

enter image description here

The error is:

I was able to repro this in IE9 with compatibility mode turned on. It's fixed now.

A variable declaration in newsletters.js was missing a var. In IE, this caused a conflict with an implicit global variable. For example, this throws an error in IE7/IE8:

<input type="hidden" name="v" value="foo" />
<script>v = 'bar';</script>
