Differences between Firefox and IE (Ajax)

Hello everybody, this is my first post here and I hope you will help me thanks to your feedback.

The users of the application I'm working on are both Firefox and IE users.

It appears that in some particular cases, the AJAX mode displays the components differently in Firefox and IE.

For example, a scrollbar appear on a table in Firefox where the table is perfectly scaled in IE.

The typical solution is to resize the component, what fixes the problem.

However, it's really constraining to check after each modification if the solution that works in IE also work in FF.

Some of you have ever faced this kind of compatibility problems ?

Best regards,

Nicolas

Hi,

Each Browser has it's own way to render the HTML code. At times no matter how hard you try it will not turn out perfect on all browsers.

I know that Firefox 30 is having some issue with QlikView, I enhance to try FF 29 and see if you have a different response.

Thank you for your help Gio.

I forgot to precise that the users are running Firefox ESR 24.0 and Internet Explorer 8.0.

Furthermore I can't force them to use a particular version, the applications have to work with the browser.

( QV Server 11.20 SR3 )

Nicolas,

Is it a lot UI issues that you see in Firefox or just the table scroll bar issue?

Re: Differences between Firefox and IE (Ajax)

For the moment that's the only kind of UI issue that the users are reporting.

But it's a sufficient reason to do a bunch of checks with different browsers at each update.

In that case, it could be a bug with V11.20 SR3, If you have a test server, I would upgrade to V11.20 SR7 and see if you can replicate the issue.

Thank you Gio, but it's sadly not so easy to upgrade to a new version given the context

Ahmed, I thank you but I have already tried with the recommended version of Firefox which is the 18.0 and the problem is exactly the same.

None of you have ever encountered this kind of issue ?

Hi Bill,

Of course I know that each browser has it's own way to render HTML.

That was most a way to ask if somebody has ever encountered this kind of issue and to be aware of the componants that can cause compatibilty issues between both browsers.


Thank you anyway.
