I went to send a suspend notice to someone this morning using Firefox and was greeted with this mess:

gah! I can't type in that!

It worked just fine in Chrome, I am not sure about IE at this time.

  • Looks right for me in Firefox 10.0.1; not sure if it's Christianity-specific, but I would assume not if Shog migrated it here – Michael Mrozek Apr 2 '12 at 20:01
  • @MichaelMrozek I'm running 11.0 – wax eagle Apr 2 '12 at 20:03
  • @MichaelMrozek: It was confirmed on another 2.0 site too... – Caleb Apr 2 '12 at 20:05

    I cannot reproduce this on Safari 5.1.5, with Drupal Answers, but I can reproduce it on Firefox 12, for the same site. I guess it's not specific for a site. Would adding a screenshot for Drupal Answers help? – kiamlaluno Apr 2 '12 at 20:08

    @kiamlaluno I have repro on Gardening so I assume its a FF 11/12 problem not a site specific one. – wax eagle Apr 2 '12 at 20:12
  • Just upgraded to 11.0 (Linux); still don't see it, but I guess it doesn't really matter – Michael Mrozek Apr 2 '12 at 20:13

    Works fine in IE 9, both in compat mode and non-compat. Which makes me laugh heartily. FF has been having so many problems lately. The last four or five rendering bugs I've seen here were all FF. Found one in Chrome where the reputation graph failed at anything other than 100% zoom. Haven't found any in IE. – Won't Apr 2 '12 at 20:21

According to our designer, the floating is needed (because he is a lazy designer :) However, the mod page was using jquery to alter the display, which was the root cause.

This will be fixed in the next build, > rev 2012.10.18.4480.

    You're saying more jQuery wasn't the solution? That it was, in fact, a problem? Shun the heretic. – Ben Brocka Oct 19 '12 at 20:32

    Well, to fix it, I had to use more jQuery :) – Jarrod Dixon Oct 19 '12 at 21:06
  • yeah, it works now! Thanks. – wax eagle Oct 26 '12 at 1:52

Reproduced in FF 12 after another moderator observed it in FF 11. Looks like the issue here is:


Not sure why that needs to float, but Firefox doesn't like it. (Note that Stack Overflow doesn't exhibit this problem, and also lacks a floating button bar)
