Comment hidden/cut off bug workaround

page 1 of 1 1 total item





I have found a nice workaround for that bug where the page will load but the comment/reply box will be cut off or hidded by a grey box. On one of the previous topics users suggested resizing the borowsers to fix it. While this does work, it gets kind of annoying.

I have found that you can adapt a Firefox extension designed to fix a similar problem on slashdot to MT. It forces the page to be redrawn once it is completely loaded, thus rendering the page correctly. This causes a flickering effect, so I restricted it to urls containing "". Grab the extension here and download it (do not install yet). Open slashfix.xpi with a zip program (I used winrar), and open slashfix.jar with the zip program again. Find the file slashfixOverlay.js and edit it. Find the function reflowOnSlashdot() and replace it with the following:

function reflowOnSlashdot() {
if (window._content.document.location.href.indexOf('')!=-1) {
var x=s.display;

Save the file and put it back in the .jar and then .xpi. Install the extension.

Note: I deserve absolutely no credit for this. I merely noticed that this could be useful on MT as well as slashdot.
