Summary05990: Firefox 12 vertical scrolling problem in admin view

Using Firefox 12.0, there is no vertical scroll bar on any admin page, and pages cannot be scrolled vertically. This makes it impossible to use LimeSurvey. This behaviour is affected by a line in jquery-ui.css.

This behaviour could not be seen using Google Chrome 18.0.1025.151.

Steps To Reproduce

Log in as administrator using Firefox 12.0 on Mac OS X, LimeSurvey Version 1.92+ Build 120405.
Open a page that is long enough not to fit the browser window vertically.
Observe that you cannot scroll down.

Then comment out the following line:
position: absolute
from the .ui-helper-hidden-accessible block of scripts/jquery/css/start/jquery-ui.css, and observe that scrolling starts to work again.

Additional Information

I have multiple add-ons in Firefox, including AdBlock Plus and NoScript, but disabling either of these potential culprits did not affect the symptoms.

TagsNo tags attached.

Firefox 12 is still in beta.

avs: Maybe report it to the Firefox guys instead ? Why do you think it is a bug in LimeSurvey?

Actually, you may be right that it would be a Firefox bug. Frankly, I did not even think about the possibility of that as I have been on the Firefox beta channel for ages and I haven't seen any rendering problems - so I automatically thought it would be some esoteric layout magic in LimeSurvey that causes this.

If this bug should still appear in a final version of Firefox please re-open.
