CSS problem in IE 11 using vers 2.15.0

MantisBT 2.15.0

We're testing it on DEV prior to moving into Production. One of the testers was using Internet Exploder 11 and was not in full-screen mode, and noticed what appears to be bad CSS (or Javascript) when moving the bottom of the window up & down (decrease & increase browser window size). See attachment.

The "powered by" message moves up and down with the browser window size and writes over the top of whatever is on the screen. QUESTION:could this be caused by any config settings on our part?

First of all clear your browser cache as you could encounter curios issues when using different Mantis versions from the same browser.

Furthermore I am quite sure that you don't use the original CSS from Mantis (at least changed background color), but your own one (maybe you have set $g_css_include_file in config_inc.php)

There is one known issue in 2.15.0 when using IE 11 and $g_cdn_enabled = OFF (the default setting)

I have neither of those variables defined in my config file in the config directory, so whatever their default values are is what they are. In the DEV site I don't have any custom CSS either. :-(

Your new screenshot "mantis-css2.jpg" shows the right background color whereas "mantis-css (Medium).jpg" shows another one.

Are both screenshots from the same user on the same system?

No, the first SS was from a Reporter using IE 11 browser, the second one was an Administrator using Chrome. Both people accessing the same server & instance of Mantis 2.15.0 however. It's possible that IE 11 user had some weird settings on their machine or in their browser...when they moved to Chrome the problem went away. I feel in my gut that there is a CSS or Javascript issue in Mantis core code that causes IE 11 to misbehave.

How do your devs test new Mantis versions? I assume you have a regression test harness set up but do you use the top browsers also?

I don't see this behavior when using IE11.

The user who encounters the issue when using IE11 should try to access https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs
If there is the same issue, there is a problem with his browser.
If there is no problem, there is a problem with your Mantis server installation or maybe some other stuff between the server or the bro´wser (proxy, web application firewall, ...).

He only gets the visual error when he uses the interactive screen for entering a new ticket. Can you try using IE 11 to enter a new ticket in a smaller window on your side please? My forum login doesn't work for him to enter a test bug on your site apparently.

User accounts of the forum and the bug tracker are separated. You have to create an account at https://www.mantisbt.org/bugs

Okay. I haven't been able to reproduce it on my machine either, but I will have him run system file checker and make sure he's fully patched...otherwise he will have to use Chrome and be done with it. Microsoft makes cr@ppy browsers anyway.

Solved!

You just have to switch of the compatibility mode in IE.
After that it works fine.
