Description Diego Grigna 2005-05-02 16:18:48 UTC
Overview Description:

I installed MediaWiki 1.4.2 and after configuration opened the main page, and it
worked. After opening a second browser, it hangs.

Steps to Reproduce:

1) Close all MSIE windows.
2) Open one and go to MediaWiki:
3) Open a new windows (without closing the other). And now the second windows hangs.

Actual Results:

The application hangs like if it was waiting on something.

Expected Results:

The application should render the main page.

Build Date & Platform:

MediaWiki 1.4.2 under Linux
uname -a
Linux quinsadb2 2.4.21-4.EL #1 Fri Oct 3 18:13:58 EDT 2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Additional Information:

My MSIE version is: 6.0.2800.1106 with SP1; Q837251

Possible Fix:

This is how I fixed it. The problem appears to be on
the skins/MonoBook.php file, I changed this:

<a style="background-image: url(<?php $this->text('logopath') ?>);

for this:

<a ...><img src="<?php $this->text('logopath') ?>" border="0">

Also I'm using my own image instead of the wiki.png one.

So the fix was to use tag img instead of url inside a style and
to use another image instead of wiki.png.

That's all, thanks,

It does not reproduce on Firefox (I'm using 0.9.2).
Comment 2 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-05-02 16:52:57 UTC
I'm guessing this is because of the ActiveX filter being used to let IE deal
with alpha-transparency in PNG images properly; maybe it's more trouble than
it's worth?
Comment 3 Richard J. Holton 2005-05-02 19:52:02 UTC
I didn't try this on a local install of MediaWiki, but trying en.wikipedia I am
unable to reproduce the behavior you describe. I'm running IE
6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 on WinXP SP2.

Is there perhaps something in IE6 SP2 that makes a difference here?
