Problem with GWT and IE

I too have a odd problem with IE In my situation I have a complex layout of panels that works fine in GWT 2.4 under Google Chrome but fails to display scroll bars and toggle buttons in IE. I could have sworn it worked before the last security update
I do not know if anyone has had similar problems. The (not verified plugin) from Google Inc. in the IE is version 1.2.9570.0 - Is there a a later working version? What could be going so horribly wrong here?
I can deal with most problems but this has me crazed!
Just to give you an idea of the structure of the web app:
It uses a layout of:
rootPanel
...HorizontalPanel
...............SplitLayoutPanel
.......................ScrollPanelL (alligned west within SplitLayoutPanel)
..............................Assorted widgets e.g buttons textboxes etc..
.......................ScrollPanelC (alligned west within SplitLayoutPanel)
.......................ScrollPanelR (alligned west within SplitLayoutPanel)
It comes up fine in GWT Designer and uses:
rootPanel.getElement().getStyle().setPosition(Position.ABSOLUTE);
As I have said earlier here it works fine in Google Chrome and its GWT support but not in IE suddenly

I have not tried this with Opera or Safari yet. Apple must have been hacked or its webmaster is nuts to allow no way to easily download safari from Apple's website. its nuts I just found it at some abscure host within Apple.com
By the way I found it through someone in highly odd maner:

http://appldnld.apple.com/Safari5/041-5487.20120509.INU8B/SafariSetup.exe

It is Safari 5 so its not the latest version but it is out there at an official host off of Apple. Very odd!

IE8 has a great problem with GWT stylesheets..
I have the similar example where I have complex cascade of panels in a page and for one of the inner DisclosurePanel I am trying to remove default border layout out of its Headers as it looks really ugly if you have multiple images in the header and all are bold-black-bordered.
I removed the GWT's default layouts and applied my own style to it. It works fine in FF and Chrome but not in IE.


Thanks,
Vaishali

Took me about 12 seconds to find the Safari for Windows page: Safari for Windows.

Safari 5.1 is the latest version available for Windows.
