      When you are configuring a web form portlet changing the Type field on a question should change the type of fields visible. For instance if the Type is "Options" then an additional "Options" text box should appear. If the type is "Text" then this "Options" text box should not appear.

      Currently in 6.04 GA if you change the type in IE8 the options are not updating properly. (As in the Option field is not appearing and disappearing when it should). I also tested this in IE7 mode using the IE developer tools and encountered the same issue. Using the mouse to change them in Firefox and Google Chrome appears to work fine, so the problem appears to be related just to IE. Note though that using the keyboard does not work in Firefox or Google Chrome and a separate bug has been filed for that. (See: LPS-11853)

      This used to work in 5.2.3 for sure so this appears to have regressed.
