Description Meno25 2008-03-07 16:59:07 UTC
Screenshot of the problem (image of ar.wikipedia Main Page on 7 January 2008)

When using IE7 to view pages in RTL wikis like arwiki, background is incorrectly extended at the bottom of every page. This generates unnecessary space between the article itself and the page footer (which contains disclaimers, privacy policy, etc). This does not happen when using Firefox.

Can't see the file anymore. Monobook or vector?

Trevor, could you look at useskin=monobook in ie7?
Comment 4 Siebrand Mazeland 2011-09-12 12:14:55 UTC
Amir, can you please test?
Comment 5 Amir E. Aharoni 2011-10-04 06:36:09 UTC
ie8 is fine, ie7 is still broken.
Comment 6 Valerie Juarez 2013-03-07 19:55:43 UTC
Viewing this page: I don't see this in IE 9 or IE 9 compatibility view. 

Amir can you retest this? If it's still valid, the version field can be updated. Thanks.
