User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/27.0.1453.116 Safari/537.36 Actual results: Opened the Mozillians home page in Internet Explorer 8 browser. Observed that the search bar did not contain the embedded text "Search for people, groups and more" as was seen in Firefox and Chrome browsers. Expected results: The embedded text, if present in the said browser, will be helpful in explaining what the bar does.
Created attachment 770705 [details] Screenshots for search bar Screenshots attached: 1. Screenshot 889777.a shows the search bar in Firefox browser 2. Screenshot 889777.b shows the search bar in Internet Explorer.
After doing some testing, it looks as if this bug occurs on IE9 and down. This is because input placeholder text is not supported for these versions of IE (is supported in IE10: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/Input). We can use something like the following script to fake the placeholder text: https://github.com/ginader/HTML5-placeholder-polyfill
