Menu to the right disappears


Here is how you can "hide" the menues to the right:
Post a message!

I am farily sure that when I get back from after making a post the posts of the thread will not have anything on the right side. I noticed it because I use the "my subscribed threads" a lot and now I have to go to another forum to get the menu back.

I would call this a bug.

EDIT: did not happen here, but I saw it a couple of times in the Security forum. I will come back if it happens again.

could it be that you have used [ code ] blocks with a lot of content? Personally I find a similar thing which i think is down to FireFox CSS rendering where the edge of the message table expands to the edge of the screen, scrolling to the side shows the side panel fine...

No no, it's not that. I am not sure what it is. This is really strange. I went here recently: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...postid=1794833

And the menu behaves strange. Sometimes I get just one link under "main menu", sometimes only a dot, and sometimes everything (under main menu), but nothing else than the "main menu". This is true even if I copy the url into an empty tab, or even a new browser Window.

I am using Windows XP right now, Firefox 1.0.6, not sure if it is me or LQ but strange is it. I will check later when I get home to see if it is like this in Linux too.

EDIT: Here's a picture: http://217.31.176.126/~ephracis/strange_lq.jpg

I've never heard of this happening before, but it looks as if the page isn't fully loading.

Yes, I know. But now it works out fine at home. I should try the same page again with the machine at work where I discovered it. Now since two posts has been added, to check whether that makes a difference.

It is weekend now but as soon as I get back to work I will check more on the Windows box, because I never recall this happening on Linux. But I will report back when I have more info.

I am not even sure whether it is the client or LQ. It should be nice to recreate this error on some other machine.

I have reproduced the problem again (on another Windows box, although located in the same network). It seems that the right menu has problems loading fully. This only happens with LQ and only when watching a thread. Now the thread I had problems with is the one named "Does the site requires..." located in WSF. The right part loads good when watching the thread, but when I watch page 3. No matter how much I try I can't reproduce the problem on page 1 or 2.


Here is how the HTML should be:

Stop right after that.

Another attempt gave:
Code:
- snip -
	</select><input type="image" src="http://images.linuxquestions.org/questions/images/go.gif" border="0" align="absbottom">
	</font>
</td></tr></form>

So it doesn't seem to be a certain place in the code that is causing troubles. I going to investigate this today in other blocks in our network, I would like to test it on a Windows machine outside work but I do not own a Windows box.

Since the code doesn't seem to be the problem you may blame our own network. But since I have not seen anything like this on any other site I have a hard time believing that we are causing the problem ourselves.

I'll report back later.
