[Portfolio] IE8 and 2.6 Portofolios tool

At first glance, the compatibility view option seemed to have done the trick. One of the issues evident on the main screen of the portfolio share tool-- where the 'Owner' column and the 'Actions' drop-down lists were being smushed together-- was fixed by viewing in compatibility mode; unfortunately the other issues still persist. I'll be creating tickets for these items in JIRA and, in the meantime, will get our users onto a more stable browser. Thanks all!
