pop up loads over page but will not go away when closed
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20071008 Firefox/184.108.40.206 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20071008 Firefox/18.104.22.168 This is a spades League I have joined. I cannot see all the page because of this problem. I tried IE and it closes fine after being read. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Just go to the URL listed above. 2.Wait for pop up box to load . 3.Click close box Actual Results: the text inside the pop up goes but the box remains as a large blue area on left of page. The pop up box should dissappear altogether when close box is selected. I have screen shots in paint of IE handling of this problem and Firefox handling if required.
Load this testcase in Firefox 2 and in MSIE 7. That webpage is in quirks mode in both browsers. bgcolor="transparent" gives different background colors in both browsers. Firefox 2 sets it to blue when MSIE 7 sets it to whichever color is chosen in Tools/Options/General/Colors
Reporter, one workaround is to use Adblock Plus 0.7.5.3: I used it for the iframe at http://www.myleague.com/teamnutthouse/ and it worked. If you can reach that website webdeveloper, then inform him that transparency for <body> and/or <iframe> are not rendered the same in different browser; they are first of all invalid markup code. All he has to do is to size correctly the DHTML layer and then dynamically set it to display: none when the close box link is clicked. There is no need whatsoever for bgcolor="transparent" and there is no need whatsoever for an iframe in the MAIN frame.
Got it! Bug 227072 for bgcolor="transparent" For allowtransparency, there is no bug for this.
By default, iframe background is transparent (bug 154957, bug 50623). So, setting allowtransparency="true" or not will do the same in Firefox. So, I'm resolving this bug as a DUPLICATE of bug 227072
