  • I'm not replicating this on IE8. How exactly are these hidden? Are you receiving no results at all?

    Do you have javascript in your ignored tags?

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.
