UPDATE: We are working on resolving the issue with Internet Explorer and the Aviary editor. We believe we're on the right track and will have a solution soon.
In the meantime, we have rolled Aviary back so that it is only enabled for Beta accounts again. We hope this helps relieve the unexpected frustrations that arose for Internet Explorer users.
If you still have issues uploading images in Internet Explorer, and are a Beta user, you can update the Get Satisfaction thread with your findings to help us continue to troublehsoot or temporarily remove yourself from the Beta team until we've fixed the behavior. To remove yourself from Beta, go to Account, uncheck the Beta option, and save your changes.
We apologize and appreciate your continued patience while we are working on a fix for this issue. You can follow the Get Satisfaction thread to stay up to date on issues.
If you are using Internet Explorer as your preferred browser, you may need to clear your browser's cookies and cache to make sure you are not working in compatibility mode. While previously compatibility mode in Internet Explorer was required, the release of the new image editing tools removed the requirement of compatibility mode in Internet Explorer.
A majority of Typepad bloggers have the new image editing tools. If you are not experiencing any problems uploading images and other files, you may not need to clear your browser cookies yet.
To clear cookies in Internet Explorer:
1. In Internet Explorer, open the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
2. Click to the General tab if not already selected.
3. Under Browsing History, click the Delete.

6. Click OK to close the window.
Clearing the cookies and cache in Internet Explorer will resolve any issues you are having uploading files to your account or rearranging sidebar content on your blog. You only have to clear your browser's cookies and cache once.
We do recommend using Firefox as your browser for best results when using Typepad, but you can choose Internet Explorer or any of the supported browsers on the list in the Knowledge Base to edit your blog.
