i have added a new FieldSet to the backend using model admin. Everything works fine. But some fields are not visible. Formfields after he TinyMCE's iframe are not in the vievport. If you use the tabulator they are visible. Can anybody give a hint to fix this?

Here is some Code:

function getCMSFields() {

$fields = new FieldSet(
new CheckboxField('anzeigen', 'Artikel ein-/ausblenden'),
new CalendarDateField('gueltigab', 'Anzeigen ab dem'),
new TextareaField('Headline', 'Überschrift'),
new TextareaField('Subheadline', 'Subheadline'),
new HtmlEditorField('Copytext', 'Artikeltext'),
new ImageField('Thumb', 'Artikelbild')

return $fields;

Greetings, Carsten.

TinyMCE uses up a lot of space, perhaps you could move your fields above it? Make sure your stylesheet is not changing the overflow in that frame/div.

Hi Dalesaurus,

the last two elements (HTMLEditorField and ImageField) are i-frames. I have tried to set an "clear:both" element befor the end of the form but it doesn't help. All CSS settings are back to the default values. I am Using FireFox 3.5.3.

In IE7 and IE8 it is working fine.

Greetings, Carsten.

That is some kind of CSS specific thing for FF. Sorry, but I am not that good with diagnosing/fixing styles.
