Known Issue: Blank Google My Map Results

There are dozens of complaints in the Google Maps Help forums that the Google My Maps results are not working within Internet Explorer.

Google's Brian B. posted a confirmation of the issue, he said:

I've seen a number of reports from users that links to My Maps bring them to blank maps. This seems to mainly be affecting people using Internet Explorer. I want to let you all know that the team is actively working on a resolution to this problem. I'll post an update here as soon as I have more information. In the meantime, some folks have found that pressing the "back" button on the browser is a temporary workaround for them. You might also want to try using another browser.

I confirmed the issue myself.

My Maps results in Firefox:

Blank Google My Maps

My Maps results in Internet Explorer 8:

Blank Google My Maps

The left hand side is missing.

This seems to be a large issue for many sites who use My Maps as part of their service offering.
