Description Roan Kattouw 2010-05-12 17:53:33 UTC
This is because the links are in <a><span>Link text</span></a>, which causes IE to show the right-click menu for clicking in limbo rather than the one appropriate for a link.
Comment 1 Trevor Parscal 2010-05-12 21:11:23 UTC
If we change it to <span><a>Link text</a></span> it will fix this, and the CSS stuff I need to do can still happen (i've checked) but it breaks allot of other stuff, like the watch/unwatch icon and all the scripts that expect a certain dom structure like CollapsibleTabs for instance.

For users looking for a workaround. If you have a middle mouse button and use that to click, the page is opened in a new tab.

As ten Wikipedia projects are being affected by this bug and the share of IE8 is growing.  The problem reports from German Wikipedia is coming in also.  Let's look into the possibility of getting this bug fix out soon.

... or not. Now swamped in other things, reassigning to Adam.
Comment 9 Nux 2010-06-30 00:12:38 UTC
LOL! This happens because SPAN hasLayout - go figure.

If you change display to inline and remove float then it works fine. Haven't checked on other browsers, but adding line-height:3.25em instead of padding-top:1.25em seem to work fine in IE8.

Switched the markup around in r69317 to fix this.

(...more than a month later, Usability Initiative now having been rolled out to all Wikimedia projects...)

If the above mentioned revision works, is it going to be rolled out? If it has been rolled out, it is not working.

Steps to reproduce: (Browser=IE7.0.6001.18000 Skin=default) Right-click on navigation tab links, popup menu for the wrong context appears.
Comment 13 DieBuche 2010-12-14 08:21:56 UTC
Not deployed yet. Reopen if it doesn't work here:

Comment 14 Ningauble 2011-01-16 15:50:54 UTC
I am not going to re-open this because I don't want to be a complete nuisance, but this is still undelivered six months after it was marked RESOLVED. From an end-user perspective, it looks like the "resolution" is WONTFIX.

It is fixed in the software. This is the bug is in the MediaWire-core component. The software has been fixed as can be seen on any wiki running the latest nightly of the software.

This nightly isn't stable enough yet for a release, but word goes a release will be this or next month.
Either way, TranslateWiki.net is running the right off trunk and it's fixed there:

When Wikipedia will be upgraded to use this release is another story.
