Comment (by hnla):

 Adding a rough patch as a workaround.
 Issue essentially is stacking contexts are  - as always in IE - different
 to other modern browsers, and the positioning of the shim is not aligned
 to the actual input button.

 Patch  manipulates the inline top property applied to the shim to match to
 our button, left property value with % unit to allow some degree of text
 resizing and adds widths to our button and shim input.

 This works... more or less Edge stacking context is wrong so we lose the
 hover effect but re-stacking the elements means click event is hidden.

 Quick check in Firefox and we still have functionality there, for the
 moment this is as far as I have time for but honestly to  really sort this
 out the markup needs re-ordering so that elements are children not
 separated and forced positioned which is fragile.
