Duplicate  IE8 - "New" image or link not displaying correctly


Well-known member
I haven't dug into this yet to explain it, but I just realized I am seeing "blank boxes" on the right of posts that are considered "new" to me.

Highlighting the box tells me there's a link in it that says "new", but it isn't shown unless I highlight it.

See attached.

EDIT: Seems like a problem with the "newIndicator" class? After staring at the "New" text for a bit, it appears to be white.

I couldn't find anything regarding it.

The problem appears that the newIndicator css may just need an adjustment to work in more browsers. It appears fine in FireFox, although a little bit on the light side if you ask me, but not as light as it is in IE.
.message .newIndicator
  float: right;
  font-size: 11px;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: white;
  background: #fff4e5 url('styles/default/xenforo/gradients/category-23px-light.png') repeat-x top;
  border: 1px solid #f9d9b0;
  width: 30px;
  height: 24px;
  line-height: 24px;
  text-align: center;
  text-shadow: 1px 1px 5px #e68c17;
  border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; -khtml-border-radius: 5px;
  margin-left: 5px;
  margin-bottom: 5px;
I'd prefer the "New" link to be similar to this style, Trebuchet MS, 11px, #6D3F03, which shows up in the thread list, but that's just me.
