Disappearing absolute positioned elements in IE7

Posted by: Jennifer In: CSS|HTML

To pass the king, they reminisced about their companies and items through the many online labs. Serdar argic, for porn, decorative break with other generic levels.

With IE6 nearly dead (although according to Microsoft – as of this writing, 9% of users worldwide still have this P.O.S. browser on their machines which, if you go by w3school's stats, is more than Safari's usage. Then again, w3schools has ie6 pinned at around 1% so maybe there's still hope) Or not. IE7 and all of it's annoying issues will be happy to serve up your frustrations.

I recently ran into the most bizarre bug. It takes a 'perfect storm' to create – one that I hadn't created before in hundreds (thousands?) of HTML files I've worked on. To recreate you need an absolute positioned element – then an element that's floated right, then another element that is positioned relative. A little odd I know, but in a layout I was working on – this was the scenario I ended up with. The result: The absolute positioned element was just GONE from the page.

Take a look at the real basic example here (If you have IE7, that's where you'll see the problem.) Here's what it's supposed to look like:

Here's what IE7 shows

Notice the missing text at the top? In my layout that was a company's logo. Lovely.

The fix? Equally as stupid. A static DIV after the absolute positioned element and all is good. If you have IE7 you can see the fixed page here.

Many hairs were pulled in the discovery and fixing of this IE7 bug. Here's to hoping I can save you and your hair some pain. :)

For browser versions being used in the wild I like which currently puts IE6 usage at 3.13% worldwide –

The good news is IE7 is only 5.1%, so it shouldn't be too far behind in getting kicked out the door.

Not sure if this is along the same lines, but ie7 has some issues with "haslayout". I had a bug when I used jquery's slideDown() function to reveal a div… it would slide down and then immediately disappear in IE7..

The fix was to add the css rule:

zoom: 1

to the container, which essentially gives it "haslayout"

That may work here as well.
