The Initial Report box and the New Reply box are not correctly placed when using IE7.

I have to find an IE7 box to test this, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Same in IE6 when you go to edit existing comment screen.
(My system is hebrew - LTR)

I think that I fixed this bug. I have applied the changes here. Can you Ctrl + Refresh to hard-refresh to see if the changes work on your end?

Hi Robert. Well, it is partially fixed. See attached screenshot.

Does this only happen in one place or in all places with this full-width text field?

November 16, 2006 01:58 PM
It happens in every page that has this type of text field.

There are two problems present.

1. The textarea is set to 100%, which IE interpets as 100% of the viewport, not the containing block element.
2. Even after setting the textarea width to 90%, there is still a scroll bar. This is mostly related to margin, padding, or borders that are offsetting the placement of the content.

The reason it's still scroll-baring is probably related to the fact that the <legend> above the textarea is 100%. Thanks for clarifying why IE is so stupid about this. Do you know of any way to have the width be the width *of the parent* instead of the viewport?

I'll continue to look into fixes for this.

Now I've got this fixed (or at least it is in IE6). It's as simple as wrapping the elements in a <div style="width: 100%"></div> and it solves all the issues. If you can confirm that this is indeed fixed, then I can go ahead and release 1.1.4 as this is the last blocking issue.
