I've just noticed display differences between what I see in browserlab for ie7 and what I see using ie9, but in browsermode:ie7. I would have thought they would show the same as both are supposed to represent what the webpage would look like in ie 7. Please can someone explain:
a) why they should be different,
b) which is the correct one.
Basically the Menu is perfect in BLab, but is floated left in browsermode:ie7.
I am using windows 7 on a PC and the problem occurs if I use BLab through Firebug or directly from Dreamweaver.
The url is my old site that I am in the middle of updating, but I still get the same error with the new site that I am testing locally:
I am also having a problem with the onion skin feature, which I had about 2 months ago, but which then went when I deleted the cache and rebooted - no such luck this time.
When I try and show 2 browser views over each other, only one will show when I slide the slider bar making direct comparison impossible - both views stay the same as the one on the left.
eg try http://www.laughingrabbit.co.uk/contact.html The corners of the form should be rounded only in later versions of ie, as it isn't supported in earlier version.
It is the same either through the main BL interface or Dreamweaver.
I have tried closing down BL, deleting cache etc (the usual stuff), but it doesn't make any difference. I work on a PC.
Has anyone else had issue with this and if so, how did you solve it.
AND YES, I AM SLIDING THE SLIDER FROM LEFT TO RIGHT and all over, but ti makes no difference
I can confirm that this is not a BrowserLab issue, and might have a clue as to why you're seeing something different. We tested your page in BrowserLab and in IE7 at 1024x768 resolution and the menu appears the same in both. When our QE upped the resolution to 1280x1024 and looked at the page in IE7, the menu was shifted left to the point where it was touching the Laughing Rabbit logo image. That sounds like the issue you're seeing, so I assume when you're testing in IE9 you're testing at a resolution greater than 1024x768.
Hope this helps,
thanks mark, that could be it. Meanwhile I have changed some of the code in the new version and I seem to have sorted it out.
Do you have any idea why I am having problems with the Onion skin feature?
hi Mark, Here is one example, on my new site. I have used css3 to round the tabs in the navigation which works for FF5, but obviously not for ie7, but no matter how much I slide the slider accross the image (and the tabs) never change. i get the same whenever I try and use onionskin at the moment - the image doesn't change from the one on the left hand side. If I swapped FF5 & ie7 round (as per the image) then the rounded tabs change to square as you would expect in ie7, but don't change to rounded as you slide the slider to the FF5 side.
Well, I'm a bit stumped. I can't think of any reason for this to happen.
Just tried BL in ie9 and I had the same problem, BUT when I cahnged to Two-up view, this feature worked perfectly and then when I returned to onion skin, the onion skin magically worked!!! Just now trying the same in FF (version 8.0.1) Exactly the same thing. Initially onion skin feature doesn't work in the way I explained above, but if I go to two-up view this feature works well and then when I return to onion skin that works perfectly as well.
The version of flash player i have installed is: 11,1,102,55
Its odd. previously when I had this problem i deleted the cache and rebooted and it was all remedied, but that didn't worked this time.
