IE6 Display problems in new version RRS feed

  • Question

  • There seem to be a number of display problems with the new version when using IE6. These problems do not occur in my Mozilla browser (SeaMonkey). I have not tried IE7.

    1. As noted elsewhere, the font in Top Answerers is not displayed properly.

    2. The icons down the left side do not display properly.

    3. The navigation buttons in Top Answerers are missing.

    4. New in this version, when you hover over most portions of the area corresponding to each post, the cursor changes to a hand. On Mozilla browser, this area corresponds to when the preview button is activated and a click will preview (or close) the thread. But on IE6, only a part of this "hand change area" produces the behavior.

    5. As noted previously, when the thread is not expanded and the preview button is activated, the form changes from a down arrow to an up arrow before the actual click.

  • David,

    I'm seeing similar results in IE6-SP2.
    The icons are truncated. The arrow cursor shows outside the area of the red box and the hand inside.  Hovering over the copy (underlined) triggers the Preview arrow and the copy is clickable.

  • This appears to be fixed (by various updates over 3+ years). Thanks!

    To be fair, I think this is rather part of an ongoing effort on Microsoft's part to mark posts in the forum support forums as "resolved".

    I do think, however, that it would be better if Microsoft employees did not collect points, or at least that these points not be publicly displayed.
