Comment (by r-a-y):

 I agree with everyone who says we should drop support for IE7 entirely.

 However, we still have to deal with IE8/9/10 and users who unknowingly use
 IE's Compatibility View, which uses IE7's rendering engine and is the main
 reason that the OP started this ticket.

 The easiest solution is to add the following meta tag into the bp-default

 `<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" >`

 This will tell IE to use the latest engine available on IE and will hence
 resolve issues on IE8+.  If everyone likes this idea, I'll work up a
 patch.  We'll have to be considerate to see if a child theme already uses
 this meta tag.
