Fixed Positioning with Posts Not Always Consistent on Mozilla Firefox

    I originally wrote this on another forum I visit that runs XenForo, but this was before I realized non-licensed users could post in this forum. Although I now basically am, as a friend of mine that uses XenForo added me to his customer account last night. :)

    I also wanted to add that I haven't noticed the issue here on XenForo, so maybe it was fixed on 1.2.0?

    Anyway, I'll just copy-paste what I wrote there, which includes the video: http://kh-vids.net/threads/positioning-issues-with-mozilla-firefox.139922/

    It's a problem that can come up elsewhere potentially, but the issue here appears to be caused by the custom tabs BB code you have. Firefox scrolls the page before the tab content is initialized. When the page shifts because of that, FF doesn't shift with it. In theory, we might be able to workaround it, but I believe we actually tried in the past and ran into other problems.

    I will look again but this may well end up being a general browser issue (and triggered primarily by a non-standard component).

    I wanted to add that this also happens on conversations since they count as "posts," which is obviously for the same reasons (not sure about profile comments, though). Would you like to try posting without the tabs and tables in my signature to confirm it?

    Also, just out of curiosity, what was the workaround that caused problems? Additionally, if you can look again, that would be greatly appreciated, but if nothing can indeed be done, then that's fine -- it's not a major issue. I just would like to know if it's an issue to do with tabs why it's not an issue on Google Chrome and whatever other browsers it's a non-issue on?

    Thanks for your time, Mike, in general. It's appreciated.

    I'm not positive that this is going to stay yet, but I've come up with a workaround that will reposition after loading is complete if you haven't scrolled yet (for the next 1.2 release). It may still trigger some weird things in browsers so it may end up having to be disabled but we'll see.

    Awesome! Thanks, Mike!

    I know they are planning on upgrading to 1.2 sometime after the full version is released because of all the fixes and additions in it, so I'll be able to see the workaround in action and will let you know if any further problems pop up!
