Description elian 2004-08-15 16:50:16 UTC
Since version 1.3.0 the vertical scrollbar of the edit box dissappears under the
scrollbar of the browser window in Internet Explorer 5.5 under Win 98 and Win NT
SP6. The problem dissappears if you change the size of the browser window and
reappears if you edit again. It's independent from the font size.

In german from [[de:Benutzer:Wolgangbeyer]]: Seit Version 1.3.0 verschwindet die
vertikale Laufleiste des Bearbeitungsfensters zunächst unter der Laufleiste
meines Browserfensters (IE 5.5 - sorry). Das Problem verschwindet sofort, sobald
ich mit der Maus die Größe des Browserfensters manipuliere. Aber es taucht auch
bei anschließenden Editier-Operationen immer wieder erneut auf. Das ist etwas
lästig insbesondere, wenn ich den Browser im Vollbildmodus habe und damit die
Größe nicht mehr mit der Maus manipulieren kann. Das Problem tritt sowohl unter
Windows 98 als auch NT SP6 auf. Andere habe ich mit IE 5.5 noch nicht testen
können. Mit IE 6 unter NT und XP habe ich es nicht beobachtet. Es hängt nicht
vom im IE eingestellten Schriftgrad ab. Mit Mozilla unter Win98 und NT (auf den
selben PCs) habe ich auch kein Problem.

Do the users who experience this problem, by any chance, have the option "edit
box has full width" in the preferences set?  If so, this is a known problem in
Internet Explorer.  There is nothing we can do about this other than advising
users to keep this option disabled.  The preferences allow users to manipulate
the size of the edit box by specifying the width in characters, so they can
adapt this option to the width of their browser window.
Comment 2 Tom Gilder 2004-10-04 15:45:23 UTC
This can be fixed by wrapping the textarea in a <div> set to width:100% - which isn't that bad, as in Strict HTML/
XHTML you need to have a block-level element between <form> and any form elements anyway.
Comment 3 Tom Gilder 2004-10-04 15:46:52 UTC
...or indeed, just setting the <form> to width:100%.

Created attachment 72 [details]
Simple patch for IE55Fixes.css

This fixes the problem.
