Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On the careers profile edit page (, if you are editing your technology "likes" and "dislikes" using IE 10 (on Windows 8/F12 reports IE10 "Standards" mode), the suggestion functionality is over-aggressive on the second and successive technology and will overwrite the first choice instead of updating the current one.

For example, if I were to type "per" in either the like or dislike boxes, and then mouse click on "perl" in the suggestions, and then begin typing "jav" and then click "java" - the box will overwrite the first entry with java and the control will contain "java jav ". If I had typed "java perl linu" and clicked linux in the dropdown, the control will contain "linux perl linu "

By the way - this doesn't appear to happen with the Tags functionality on meta stackoverflow.

Yep, I see it. Will work on a fix. – Matt Sherman Feb 4 '13 at 16:21

Just tidying up some old bug reports - this one seems to be fixed now.
