That's because IE has failed to default to type="submit" for unknown
type attribute values. i.e. In current browsers, <button type="add">
and <button type="remove"> is supposed to equivalent to <button
type="submit">. But in IE, it's equivalent to <button type="button">.
alternatively implementing the buttons using conditional comments like this:
<!--[if !IE]>--><button type="add">Add (!IE)</button><!--<![endif]-->
<!--[if IE]><button type="submit">Add (IE)</button><![endif]-->
