Text Bid Factor field unresponsive in IE

When entering Bid Factor Responses, the text bid factor question is unresponsive after a bidder enters comment text on the previous bid factor (numerical).

Text field should be editable.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Step 1- Create an Event with 1 Event Line
Step 2- Enter 3 ad-hoc Header Bid Factors
Step 2a- 1st Header Bid Factor is a Yes or No Type
Step 2b- 2nd Header Bid Factor is Numerical Type
Step 2c- 3rd Header Bid Factor is Text Type
Step 3- Enter Bidders or Suppliers.
Step 4- Post the Bid
Step 5- Log in as an invited Bidder
Step 6- Answer 1st Bid Factor Question
Step 7- Answer 2nd Bid Factor Question
Step 8- Click Add Comments or Attachments link on 2nd Bid Factor Question
Step 9- Enter text in the comments section and click OK (do not enter an attachment).
Step 10- You'll notice that you're unable to enter a response on the 3rd Bid Factor Text box.
You can click on the Add Comments and Attachments for the 3rd Bid Factor Question without actually entering any Comments and Attachments and if you click ok to return to the Event Details page, you are now able to enter Text in the 3rd Bid Factor Question text box.

Bidders are not able to answer the third bid factor question
