I have tried with 2.4.5, and still have the same layout issues (attaching print-screen).
Also, I have cleaned all browsing cache, history, cookies ...

ender - perhaps a CSS file is missing? If you are in 'Live mode' ss does do some magic to concat your js/css so try the admin like this -

Just wanted to say that I'm getting exactly the same thing in Chrome, so I'm having to use Firefox to manage the CMS.

wow - I am very surprised - as I said ALL day EVERY day - chrome, chrome, chrome

Tim - is this with a fresh install?
Any modules?

If I remember correctly it was a fresh 2.4.1 install, then upgraded to 2.4.5. Pretty sure it was all fine before the upgrade.

On Chrome or Iron the height of div (id=left and maybe id=right) seems to have wrong values. So all the javascript-actions made with fitToParent-function will cause a wrong height to children of 'left' (and maybe right)

so far so good. but i can't find the one, where the height of 'left' (and maybe right) is set.


possibly it's a bug of V8, instead.

ok, just a workaround:

load /sapphire/javascript/layout_helpers.js

the error occurs at the end of function getFittingHeight()
for me it starts at line 90. just don't let it return the value 0, and it works.

not a bugfix, but a workaround.
works for me very well in first shot, testing should be done on various browsers.

so far:
iron 11.0.700.2 (83001) - looks fine
firefox 3.6.16 - looks fine
IE 9.0.8112.16421 - looks fine
edit: chrome 11.0.696.71 - looks fine

edit: the error does not occur using chrome 11.0.696.71...

there could be some bugs with other elements using fitToParent or getFittingHeight.

hope that helps, regards.
