A new bug with Google Places seems to be preventing some Internet Explorer users from adding a new business to Google Places / Maps.

This was first reported a few days ago at the Google Places Help forum and Google acknowledged the bug yesterday, saying they fixed it. The issue is, they fixed one bug, which now leads to another bug.

I personally tried this myself using Internet Explorer 8 and it failed. Go to Google Places, click on add a new business and then you will be taken to a blank page. Here is a picture:

According to some people, this has been going on for a week now. Yesterday, Google said they fixed it. Google's Linda said:

We've notified our engineering teams and it should be fixed if you're an IE user.

Please report back if you're still seeing this particular problem with the popup screen.

Well, there is no popup issue, but there still is a blank white screen.

Solution? Switch browsers. :)
