Element retains position: absolute after class change

Permalink | (Orphaned), Safari | 1 comments
Reported on 3 October 2006

When changing a parent element's class via JavaScript/DOM, an initial position:absolute declaration sticks. The problem is corrected by applying a position:relative declaration to the parent element's children.

Orphaned bugs - explanation

Permalink | (Orphaned)
Reported on 3 December 2005

I just added the (Orphaned) category, which contains all bug reports that no longer have test pages. I hope a friendly visitor will adopt them by creating a test page for the described bug.

If you create a new test page, leave the URL a comment in the original bug report. If I accept the new test page, you'll get the official credits on the report page.

All in all I'm rather pleased that only 22 out of 186 bug reports (12 %) turn out to be orphaned. In general people who post bug reports here are serious about maintaining them. Good to know.

Border Padding Parallel Bug

Permalink | (Orphaned), Opera | 0 comments
Reported on 5 October 2005

Opera 7.x-8.5 will add padding-bottom to an object that is equal to the border-top if you use border-width and have the object positioned bottom.

I have found a workaround. If you do not have four seperate values for border-width the bug isn't rendered. You can also use border-color and border-style and use border: to set four seperate values for border-width without actually using the border-width syntax.

Disappearing image with relative position

Permalink | (Orphaned), Explorer 5-6 Windows, Explorer 7 | 0 comments
Reported on 23 September 2005

Experimenting with position: relative styles I noticed this inconsistent behavior of IE6. The image on the pages vanishes when a TD is shown/hidden, even though it is not involved in the javascript action.

Setting position: relative on html and body in strict mode

Permalink | (Orphaned), Explorer 5-6 Windows, Safari | 1 comments
Reported on 20 July 2005

In Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher, setting html, body {position: relative;} while in strict mode causes the browser to disallow scrolling. I don't know of any real-world applications where this would be a problem, but it's still a bug.

In Safari the entire body disappears if you set position: relative on the HTML first, and then on the BODY. Safari crashes if you check BODY, then HTML, then uncheck BODY.

Workarounds include using quirks mode, or playing it safe and avoiding setting positioning to the html element.

display:-moz-inline-box + text-align = bug

Permalink | (Orphaned), Mozilla | 2 comments
Reported on 1 July 2005

Text inside a display:-moz-inline-block element cannot be aligned. Not only that, it doesn't do word wrapping.

Padding difference with windows and linux

Permalink | (Orphaned), Mozilla | 6 comments
Reported on 25 May 2005

Using firefox in Windows and Linux (same version) i get a problem where i cannot specify a shadow underneath text to be consistent, because the margin/padding differences are throwing me out - i have set paddings and margins of all elements to 0 - except the one i wish to change... it's highly annoying!

Duplicate characters bug without comments

Permalink | (Orphaned), Explorer 5-6 Windows | 2 comments
Reported on 8 December 2004

Setting up a row of floats in Explorer 6 can lead to a plethora of erratic behavior, namely duplicate characters; in this bug report, I go into detail on some pure-CSS triggers which can make these extra characters appear, examples on how the bug is triggered, and different ways to combat it.
Note that these bugs are not caused by comments in your XHTML, as is the well known original Duplicate Characters Bug.

This site is no longer maintained. I’m sorry, but it’s just too much work for too little return. You can continue to browse old bug reports, though.
