Right gutter watermark seems to interfere with "reply as new topic" link


(Michael Jonker) #1

The ‘Reply as new Topic’ button only becomes active about 2/3rds along it’s length on Firefox 25.0.1 - Ubuntu

Works fine on Chrome

This is working fine for me on FF 25.0.1 Do you have any add-ons that could be interfering with it?

I’ve seen problems like this before, with the gutter watermark interfering in odd ways with the reply as new topic link.

I tested turning all plug-ins off, but no difference. Firebug is showing the a tag correctly:


and the inteference does seem to coincide with the background image, as @codinghorror has pointed out.

I was not able to locate the container for the background image in Firebug.

I tested this on Firefox 25.0.0 - Ubuntu as well, where the problem was not evident.

This may well be just some subtle bug on Ubuntu. Very strange.

I’m having the same problem. In Chrome, Firefox , and Internet Explorer on Windows 8.
Here’s the video showing the behavior in Chrome, but it’s basically identical in all browsers

How wide is your screen? @awesomerobot can have a look

Does this happen on all topics?

Seems like a z-index thing - not sure why Windows browsers would do it and OSX wouldn’t… but an easy fix.

My screen is 1920x1080. Yes, all topics where that watermark show up. In my forum it’s within an admin-only category.
