I'm not sure if this is an XF issue or a Core issue but as far as I'm aware IE8 doesn't support media queries and hence things can get very messed up.

Is there any way to force the width to remain fullsize and force a scrollbar rather than letting it try to be responsive and messing up?

(My work has only JUST moved to Windows7/IE8 so doubt it'll disappear anytime soon).
Sadly not that I'm aware of, I saw your post on XF so those guys hopefully will give some input.

And yes... it sucks work environments run ie8 a lot from what I've seen.
