I'm using Opera 6.0 and the Standard skin.
My beloved floating sidebar (the reason I got a username in the first place) has stopped working. This is quite bad, as it means I have to scroll about to do anything (or lean across to the keyboard).

I know Opera 6.0 is useless for Monobook, but it's never had any problems with Standard before now, and I'm sure the floating sidebar has been working since the new software came online. Just not today.

Hope all is well, and this is just a glitch.

Confirmed that it no longer works, with Opera 6.03/mac. Not
sure why...

Please check with lastest opera browser and reopen this
bug if the issue still happen.

Works for me under mozilla firefox 1.04.

Reopening, confirmed that this does not work in Opera 10 on OSX.
Comment 5 Happy-melon 2011-01-15 13:50:13 UTC
Do we really still support this skin any more?
Comment 6 Niklas Laxström 2011-01-15 14:10:11 UTC
Something has to be done either way.
Comment 7 Chad H. 2011-01-15 16:54:38 UTC
Until someone removes the skin, it's in core and should be supported.
Comment 8 Roan Kattouw 2011-01-19 19:44:02 UTC
WFM in trunk
Comment 9 Roan Kattouw 2011-01-19 20:49:49 UTC
...I think, if I understand the bug correctly.
Comment 10 Chad H. 2011-01-19 21:07:02 UTC
The bug was specific to Opera. I remember confirming that the sidebar did indeed not float like it should in Opera 10 when I posted comment 4
Comment 11 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-01-22 01:26:42 UTC
Chad, this seems skin-specific.  Which one were you using?
Comment 12 Chad H. 2011-01-22 01:41:59 UTC
Standard, as outlined by the bug summary.
Comment 13 Mark A. Hershberger 2011-01-25 01:51:35 UTC
By "Standard", do you mean "Vector" b/c I don't see any labeled "Standard".  Count this as my own ignorance.

?useskin=standard . No idea what the display name is.
Comment 15 Chad H. 2011-01-25 02:08:37 UTC
Classic in the UI.

It's sitting right in skins/Standard.php along with all the others.
Comment 16 Marcin Cieślak 2011-03-14 02:11:06 UTC
Just checked on 1.18alpha (r83865) with:

Opera/9.80 (X11; FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT amd64; U; pl) Presto/2.7.62 Version/11.01

and it works fine.

Floating quickbar on the right side is:

#quickbar {
border-right:1px solid gray;
#quickbar {
#quickbar {

Fixed quickbar on the right side is:

#quickbar {
border-left:2px solid #000000;

#quickbar {

Can anyone with Opera 10 for Mac confirm, if this is also happens for the Cologneblue skin?

Is the floating sidebar on the left not working? on the right? both?

Please check: 

a) standard (also known as "classic") skin, floating left
b) standard (also known as "classic") skin, floating right
c) cologneblue skin, floating left
d) cologneblue skin, floating right
