[Plugin: FancyBox for WordPress] Possible bug in IE7 and IE8

  • Hello there,
    I have a note for an author of this plugin, we are using it on a majority of our websites and we probably found a bug that has some unwanted consequences in old Internet Explorer (version 7 and 8).

    Description:
    The following code is in this file: fancybox-for-wordpress/fancybox/fancybox.css

    Last 8 lines contain this filter for IE7 and 8:

    (filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader())
    
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-n { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_n.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-ne { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_ne.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-e { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_e.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-se { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_se.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-s { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_s.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-sw { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_sw.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-w { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_w.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }
    .fancybox-ie #fancybox-bg-nw { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_shadow_nw.png', sizingMethod='scale'); }

    This causes freezing on load in IE7 and IE8. It’s not for some short period of time but for about 8 seconds. It happens on every page load in most versions of this browser. We tried to remove this and it still seems to work fine.

    Can you please check it out? Thanks for a great work on this plugin!

  • Thanks for this, Jakub.

    Our site uses Fancybox and it was crashing in IE 8. We commented out these lines and things seem to be working in that browser now.

    Jared.
