Menu system does not appear to work correctly in IE8

Reported by: jaime@… Owned by: cbalan
Priority: normal Component: MenusPlugin
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description

The menu items swap back and forth from float:left and float:right. The newly added buttons often disappear when they are float:right. Please let me know if you need screen shots or any other information.

This has been working well for me in IE. See comments in ticket #4446. Some screen captures and OS version would be helpful.

I see a similar effect in Firefox 3.0.14 (Ubuntu Linux)

(I was the "anonymous" poster above.)

Browser: Firefox 3.0.14 Trac Version: 0.11.1 Other plugins installed: TracMercurial OS version: Ubuntu 9.04

I will attach screenshots of variants of this problem: sometimes the menu items are black when the mouse is not hovered over them -- this I can live with. Sometimes the menu is mangled and on the right side (this looks horrible), and sometimes the "menu" is gone and only the default Trac tabs/buttons show up.

Also note that no configuration options were changed between captures of these screenshots -- just hitting the reload button.

I have seen some of the behavior you show below when my hosting provider has been having issues with there load balancer, resulting in slow responses and what I presume is an incomplete load of the page.

Sometimes menus are mangled and on the right-hand side.

Sometimes the menu does not appear at all.

Are you sure this problem is specific to IE8?

I believe the issue with the black menus is proper behavior. When you are on /wiki or a URL starting with /wiki, the tab turns black. The latter behavior is however sometimes undesirable, resulting in several tabs turning black. See #4914.

Menu items are sometimes black when the mouse is not hovered over them.

i have simple CSS issue on chrome

#mainnav li {
...
margin: -1px .3em 0 -.4em;
..
}

This margin makes the last button going on new line

Replying to gdo@coworks.pro:

i have simple CSS issue on chrome

You are suggesting adding that CSS to tracmenus.css?

comment:10 Changed 23 months ago by anonymous

Sorry, no.. I just wanted to say that this current margin on Chrome makes the menu appears in two lines...

comment:11 Changed 23 months ago by rjollos

How many entries are there on your mainnav? Could you post a screen capture of the issue?
