Help Center issues impacting drop-down fields and menus for multiple browsers are being remediated.

We are aware of Help Center issues for Internet Explorer users and are working to deploy a fix.
Additionally, Help Center JS modules that are already imported with the new ES6 import syntax were left out of the final JS bundles. During this incidents, some customers would have experienced that a number of Help Center features, like drop-down fields and menus, were broken. The majority of Help Center frontend code, however, is still ES5 and AMD module based, so most core features were still working.
To resolve the errors, we rolled back to a previous release of Help Centre. We're currently looking at improving our automated tests pre-deploy: in this instance, more extensive testing on browsers that don't support ES6 would have helped surface the problem.
