Description Sebastian Rittau 2009-07-21 22:10:30 UTC
Please see for an illustration of the problem: A thumbnail on a non-white background is displayed with a white border with differing sizes on each side. This is due to the misuse of the border attribute.

The problem can be fixed (on FF) by changing the following rules in main-ltr.css:

  * Removing border-color and border-style from div.thumb
  * Removing border-width from div.tright, instead adding "margin-left: 1.4em"

I don't know if other things will break, though. Nevertheless the rules above look very hacky, change-until-it-works-like and should be reworked in any case.

(The same problem exists for the monobook skin, but this has been worked around on the German Wikipedia, at least.)
Comment 1 Trevor Parscal 2009-07-21 22:25:02 UTC
Solved in r53628.
Comment 2 Derk-Jan Hartman 2009-07-21 23:56:37 UTC
See also my comment in bug 16272, which dealt with the same issue.
Comment 3 entlinkt 2010-07-23 23:23:56 UTC
r53628 doesn't fix anything because this bug (essentially a dupe of bug 8814) is about borders, not backgrounds.

Note that the problem is no longer visible at dewiki because the workaround from [[de:MediaWiki:Monobook.css]] has been copied to [[de:MediaWiki:Vector.css]].
