Glitch viewing website's header in embedded forum in Internet Explorer

The forum is embedded in the website using the embed-friendly theme. There is a website header & footer and the forum is in the body. In all browsers except Internet Explorer, it works fine; but in IE9, as soon an anything in the forum is clicked, the top of the page shown in the browser window is the top of the forum. The website's header doesn't show & you have to scroll up to see it. What can I do to get the top of the page seen in Internet Explorer to be the website's header? (My css & php knowledge is limited, so please be detailed in what & where changes should be made.) Thank you.

    You mean it is actually showing but scrolled down? That is pretty standard behaviour. Clicking on a discussion will take you to the last post in the discussion (thus scrolling down). Or did I miss something here? Do you have a link so we can see what you mean?

    Ok, I see the problem. I don't know how to fix it as I am not using the embed version. In your case, I would highly recommend to not use the embedded version and instead go with a plugin like nillablog or Vanilla CMS to create the pages like the overview front page and the Links.

    you header is so simple you could add it in the default.master template.

    grep is your friend.
