View Full Version : Scrollbars on top Firefox/Dialog
10 Dec 2006, 9:02 AM
Unusually, something works great in IE and not in FF (2.0). I am dynamically popping up a dialog (layout and regular) over an existing layout that has a region with scrollbars.
For some reason (I thought it was a Z-index issue, but not) the dialog appears fine, can be dragged, and shows on top of all the content as intended, BUT in firefox, the auto-generated scollbars in one of the region are always on top of the dialog.

I think it's an issue not just with Firefox, but Firefox on the Mac (which happens to be my development platform :) ). True for both 1.5 and 2.0 FF.
Would hate to exclude us Mac people :)

Scrollbars on firefox mac are like selects in ie6. Adding "shim:true" should fix it.

Thanks, jack. That did it. SHIMS.

Jack, where do you put the shim:true code in your css file? I added it to the body tag and it seemed to work and then when I emptied my cache and did a few more tweaks to my site, suddenly the scrollbars and floating on top again. Now no matter where I put shim:true, it doesn't seem to work.
I basically have the same issue as above. I have several galleries on my site that use lightbox to display. Lightbox floats above with an semi-opaque background covering the screen, but in firefox for mac all the auto overflow scroll bars stay visible and on top of the gallery images. It's frustrating.

shim:true is a config entry for dialog - see the examples. In the future please post these questions in Help.
One thing I've noticed is that shimming doesn't seem to do the trick when the scrollbar is rendered after the dialog in question. In my case, I have a splash screen up while everything loads behind it, and when the pane behind it is rendered the scrollbar whacks right across it.
(And yes, Ext.useShims == true, and inspection in firebug verifies that shims are in use)
Don't know if there's anything to be done about it, but if there are any ideas...
I have discovered that certain FF themes do not exhibit this problem.
