Title: A detailed description on each board problem with Firefox.
Post by: DenDen60 on February 28, 2015, 04:28:30 PM
I am using Firefox 36, Google Chrome 40 and IE 11

When I load this page  (http://citizensandsocieties.net/NA-USA/index.php?board=21.0)I see it very well in Chrome and IE, but it is doubled in Firefox. I tried it on my laptop and it did the same thing, so it's not associated with my computer.

How can this happened?  :(

That is good news if everybody see's it the same. I just don't understand why I see this double on both my computer and my wife's notebook.   :-\

What version of Firefox do you have?

Ok, then it has to be an add on that I have installed on Firefox that causes this. I will try to see what add-on I have added on both machine.

Barring that, disable half the addons and check the problem. Reenable and disable the other half. That'll let you know if it's an addon problem at all. Or better yet, start Firefox in safe mode.

Try deleting the old board and redo a new one to see if the problem still persist.

But it does this on all boards, and it seems to be just my computers at home that does this. No one else has this issue. I figure it is an add-on.

Things I would try:

Reboot
Uninstall/Reinstall Firefox (without deleting personal settings)
Pray :P

Odd that it's happening on two different computers in your house. Are both Firefoxes configured the same?

Pretty much the same yes. What is weir is that even in safe mod it does the same thing.

You could create another profile in your Firefox and see if it does it completely stock.

Finally the problem was not with Firefox.  :(

I saw that when I was not logged in, the problem did not show. I then realized that I had checked Show board descriptions inside boards in my profile.

Since I also made the change in the code so that everybody would see this option, it duplicated the option.

Because there is no way to do that from the admin panel for anything, of course.

Here is a related issue.

Please view the attached file.

Notice the difference between Firefox and Chrome (IE is also OK).

What can cause the text to overextend like this?

Thanks

Newest versions of FF and Chrome introduced a lot of problems with the way they render our stuff (and our MODs)...
