To clarify further, it's the text box that changes to show a description as you rollover the vB controls in any new post window. This text is far too small, and it is very hard to read. I know have seen this problem with other websites too, but Macfora is the only example I can think of right now. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to http://www.macfora.com/forums 2. Create a new post or thread 3. In the new post or thread window, look in the vB code controls. The text in the text field below all the controls, which changes as you rollover the various vB code controls, is too small. Actual Results: The text in the text field is too small. Expected Results: The text should be a normal, readable text size. Internet Explorer displays this text fine.
Adam, it appears to be necessary to register to view the page in question. Please attach an example HTML page to this bug.
site looks like a standard vbulletin setup... none of the form fields on the registration page are giving me problems [ http://www.macfora.com/forums/register.php ] Adam, can you please provide some more details if this is still a problem in current builds/with the current forum setup there? Does setting a minimum font size in the advanced fonts preferences make things work better? Do these pages look any different in a recent mozilla build?
Created attachment 123653 [details] Here's the problem with the VBB fields. Here's a HTML page of the New Reply page in the Macfora forums. The problem is that text looks very small and unreadable in the field that describes one of the vB code buttons. Another way to see this is by going to www.macupdate.com. The text for the ad links at the top will have the same problem: they are small and jumbled. I'm using Mozilla 1.4b. I guess Mozilla doesn't handle the anti-aliasing of small text very well. The same thing happens in Camino 0.7. In Safari, the small text looks fine. Hope this helps.
Oh yeah BTW, Chris, I can't find anything in the advanced prefs about a minimum size.

Sorry, catching up on a bunch of bugs here... this is indeed a problem with the given page... its doing silly things like using inline styles to set the font size to 7pt for some form control, such as: <input type="text" class="bginput" name="status" style="font-size: 7pt;" size="50" value="Use these controls to insert vBcode"> I don't know if this is stock VBB code or if its something the author of the site has doneby themselves, but it is a matter for tech evang and not a bug per say. See earlier comments for how to deal with this on the preference side.
Adam, this is best handled by you contacting the site.
It looks like they've changed the site to use px sizes instead of pt. Adam, is it fixed for you? Looked fine for me, but that's probably because I use minimum font size pref.
Reporter - This issue may have been resolved by an update to the html code on the site. Are you able to confirm if this is still a problem? Thanks
