Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

I am using default Windows XP with IE 6.0.2. When i open any question page, only the link and flag options appear—there is no option for commenting.

Also, were you logged in correctly? If you're not logged in many options are hidden from you because you can't use them - this includes adding comments. – DMA57361 Nov 12 '10 at 10:04
I was playing with the browser that's in the PlayStation 3 yesterday - got the same result. It does support JavaScript, but I couldn't click "add comment". – John Saunders Nov 12 '10 at 20:58

We no longer test in IE6.

The minimum browser we support is IE7.

Maybe you should test the "reading" of content in IE6, but block IE6 users from asking quesions or providing answers with a nice clear error message. – Ian Ringrose Nov 12 '10 at 13:42
I appreciate if you tel this information to the IE6 user that they cannot utilize the features of this site until they upgrade their browser. My company hasn't upgraded all system with IE7 or 8 and I am one of those unfortunate users of this site who continuously refreshing the page to check may be after refresh site will apprear fine to me – Zerotoinfinity Dec 26 '10 at 13:08
for heaven's sake people, do upgrade to a modern browser, or beg your company to do it! IE6 is ten years old now… you are almost guaranteed to get malware using it. More sites should abandon it, like SE did; finally users and/or system administrators will be forced to update. – fudo Jun 20 '11 at 11:30
