I've ugraded to version 2.2.4 and all seemed good until I logged into the admin section and discovered that IE 7 doesn't display the main, admin page properly.

The 'Site OCntent and Structure' box is completely collapsed hiding the entire left menu and most of tinymce's body (main content).

I followed the upgrade instructions to the letter.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Does anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks for the quick response.

Shouldn't the admin system display properly with no tweaking to the CSS?

This isn't a custom page, it's the main admin section and should be tested to work within IE 7, shouldn't it?

It's interesting to note, when I click the 'Site Content and Structure' (to open and close the sitetree), nothing happens??

After replacing all relavant folders and not tweaking anything it's odd theirs such display issues?

I get a similar problem with 2.2.4 and Firefox 3. Only happens when I enable 'translatable' and switch languages :(
