I'm not replicating this on IE8. How exactly are these hidden? Are you receiving no results at all? –  Grace Note May 19 '10 at 14:16
    
No repro in either FF 3.6 or IE7. Can you post a screenshot? –  Jon Seigel May 19 '10 at 14:22

Do you have javascript in your ignored tags? –  devinb May 19 '10 at 14:29

Yes, If you have java* in the ignored tag and choose Hide Ignored Tags in pref, you won't see javascript posts too.

  • Turn off Hide Ignored Tags checkbox
  • or put java, java-* in ignored tag

Ack. I had 'java*' as an ignored tag.

Then you will surely not see javascript too, * is wildcard and all the tag startswith java will get ignored. –  YOU May 19 '10 at 15:53
