    Javascript alert boxes are wrapped in Windows 7 with IE 8

    PHRED-SE Level 1

      I can't count the number of JavaScript alert boxes I have throughout my systems and they have always made the transition between IE browsers from 6 to 8 without a hitch.  Without a hitch until I setup my first Windows 7 machine.  It is a 64 system that has both 32 & 64 bit IE browsers.


      It doesn't matter which of the two versions I use, the JavaScript messages that I have so carefully crafted with just the proper layout are now wrapped.  The resultant text in the new W7 popups is almost unintelligible because it is so badly scrambled/wrapped on the new white background.


      Since an alert box is simplicty itself, there is no way that I can think of to change the inherent size of the box.


      Has anyone else notice this phenomena???   If so, do you have a way around it short of redoing all of the text in the effected boxes???
