Side menus contain (mostly) invisible items, and various features such as highlighting boxes and colour schemes also vanish. The pages appear correctly in Firefox 2, and other browsers. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. visit www.city.ac.uk/mathematics 2. 3.
The problem is still present in RC1, and relates to incorrect loading of style files. The page contains the following two lines - if the first <link> line is deleted then everything works fine. The file city2col.css @import's another css file, and it is this which fails to load if the first line is left in. This is not a problem in FF2 or other browsers. <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www.city.ac.uk/global/css/city2col.css" type="text/css" media="sc#82;een,projection" /> <style type="text/css" media="screen,projection"> @import 'http://www.city.ac.uk/global/css/city2col.css'; /* Viewed in all but NS4 or earlier (PC/MAC), IE4 or earlier (PC), all IE (MACs only) */ </style>
city.ac.uk have now redesigned their site so that the issue does not arise (although that does not resolve the underlying problem). However, visiting the sites listed no longer demonstrates a problem.
Anton, can you attach a simple testcase that demonstrates the bug?
Ah, yes. The two stylesheets pointing to the same uri with the first disabled thing. This got fixed for Firefox 3.1.
