on mozilla 1.2.1 using windows ME (yeah, i know it sucks) i can not get the post by time of day bars to display.

told ya it wasn't life or death.

under IE 6? it was the latest release last year, i could get the bars to display...

i don't know if anyone else is having that problem, but i guess there is something wrong with mozila since i got it to work under IE.

just a FYI....

CRZ/Guru/Adam(?) seem to be pretty quick about responding and/or finding problems.

I was all ready to post about having problems with "Mark Forum Read" timing out the other day (right after the ignore feature was turned on). I tried Mozilla and it worked fine, so I just switched to Mozilla for the day and by the next afternoon, Phoenix was working fine.

I'm not saying they knew they were fixing anything, but they're certainly doing a good job of making it look that way

I've got that same Mozilla release on Win2K, & also see the problem(-ette).

Can I play along at home??? This browser doesn't seem to understand the "%" specification on the width attribute of the "img src=images/bar-on.gif" directive. (Even though it seems that it should.) So, yes, I concur with "browser problem".

(Why, yes, I am bored today. Funny you should ask that.)

--------------------------------------
However, there's some seemingly extra stuff in the bar's "td" entry that seems to be confusing Mozilla. (Naturally I don't have any idea if there's some reason that stuff is there.) Specifically, if I comment out the "center", "font", & "/center" elements before the "img src", Mozilla will render correctly.

(I should shut up & go away, shouldn't I? Sorry.)

Maybe this has already been fixed, or I just don't know where to look. I'm in 1.2.1 and I can't find anything on the screen that looks different from IE 6.

Give me a concrete example, please.

I am having the same problem with Mozila 1.2.1

Using Mozilla, if I go into my profile and click on “view posts by time of day” I get the number of posts listed on the left, but not the blue bars that represent the graph. In IE 5.5 the bars work. I believe this is the problem.

I tried to include a screen shot, but I can't figure out how to paste it in.

I hope this helps.

Hrm. It works fine for me in Mozilla 1.3b. I know why it would be failing on some versions, and I can fix it, but I'm not sure if it's really worth the effort, given that this HTML hack appears to function in the up-and-coming versions of Mozilla.

Oh, I'm sorry sir. I didn't mean to infer that you might be poverty stricken. Should I revise my statement to make it clear that you have way more money than brains?

Curious. In that case, I'll fix up the poorly thought out HTML and those of you who can actually reproduce this can let me know if it's fixed. Give me a few hours to get some Real Work(TM) done first.

//edit: Alright, so it took me a little longer to get around to making this fix. Does anyone who can actually reproduce it want to tell me if the bug is still there?

yay, it works! thanks inifinitum


have a question for you though....i got 1.3b mozilla, and now the wienerboard will lock up sometimes when i click links here. doesn't happen anywhere else...and i'll have to end the task and reopen mozilla and try again...

now the question....1.3b means that it's 1.3 BETA right? i don't have the full version, so it could be because i have a beta release, right?

Yes, 1.3b is a beta. 1.3 Final was released a few days ago, so by all means go get it and see if it solves your problem. I haven't had any issues with 1.3 beta builds, but I'm certainly not "every user".
