Forum 2.6rc1 firefox issue

I am having problems with the new 2.6rc1 forum plugin. Everything is displayed correctly in IE but not in Firefox.

When using firefox, both the forum centerblock and topics are not displaying properly. With IE, a mouse over of the topic gives you details of the last post or the snipet of the original post.

It is hard to explian but here is an image i found:

http://www.volunteerems.org/cms/forum-on-firefox.gif

It is not my image or the same browser or forum version, but it is exactly what i'm seeing with firefox.

Any ideas?

Well not posting the link to the live site makes it hard to see the real issue Confused
The image you posted shows that you have not added the CSS for the tooltip style and would show the same in IE as FF if that style was missing.

Layout has been confirmed with this new version on most or all modern browser types.

If it were a FF issue - then this site would also have the issue but I assume you don't see the issue on this site.

That is correct, I do not see the same issue with www.geeklog.net.

Is there something i could have missed with the upgrade from the 2.3 forum version?

yes - the note CSS 'tooltip' and possibly other CSS styles.

What GL version and theme are you running?

GL version 1.4.0sr5-1 (just upgraded today)

I'm using the professional theme that came with 1.4.0sr5-1.

Excuse me for butting in... but, could this be a simple cached style sheet issue? I wonder, since it works find in IE but not FF, one would think the style.css is correct.

Just for grins, try hitting Ctrl-F5 in FF to reload everything and see if that makes any difference. If not, no harm done...

Thanks!

I should also note that I did the forum upgrade AFTER the gl upgrade to 1.4.0sr5-1.

You need to install the updated CSS tags into your style.css file in the layout/yourtheme dir like what Blaine had said, if you didn't or you have a misc copy of a duplicate tag from before, your gonna have problems. Here is a copy of my style.css for professional. Rename your current one to a backup and copy and paste this code into a new file and name it style.css and place it in that dir. Also, goto in your browser and click on tools and then clear private data (clear your cache). The code here works in my FF just fine.



[code]
/* STYLESHEET FORMAT GUIDE *****************************************************

split the following sections:
- semantics (direct formatting for <td>, <a > etc
- classes (.whatever)
- common plugin CSS
- navbar
Within these sections, entries are to be strictly alphabetized.

SAMPLE:
.poll-vote,
.poll-vote-results {
background:transparent;
color:#000000;
font-size:smaller;
}

These are the rough rules:
- always put a ';' after the last entry
- always a linebreak before .
- always a linebreak after , ; { and }
- always a . before all classes
- two spaces indent
- no tabs
- no spaces after colons
