Can we get some more details please. So far, I am unable to recreate the situation shown in the screen shot.

Doug Smythies (dsmythies) wrote :

O.K., I have re-created the issue on my test 17.04 desktop (VM) and my 16.10 test Laptop using the default firefox web browser.

The issue does not occur with any of 3 different web browsers from my windows 10 laptop.

14.04 Ubuntu desktop with default firefox does NOT have the issue. (45.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1)(not up to date, and I see firefox in the update list. Will report back later after updates).

Yep, it seems to be a Firefox issue. I attach an image showing what it looks like for me.

So now my 14.04 desktop VM has firefox 52.0.1+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 and it has the issue.

@Gunnar : I get what you get, which I figured was close enough. Anyway, not a docs issue.

I'm not so sure... IMO we should keep it as a h.u.c issue for now. I
suspect that tweaking the CSS file might help.

The attached composite is screenshots segments from different browsers on different OS's.
The boxes under Ubuntu with and up to date firefox are way bigger than they should be and so they go beyond the overall containment box, which we define, and wrap around to the next line. Why? I think, but am not sure yet, that the two boxes inside our defined overall box are filled out by the call to google cse (Custom Search Engine). Why would those boxes be different in, so far, that one case?

I have tested 4 different browsers with windows 10, 2 different browsers with an apple, and an old old version of firefox with Ubuntu desktop, and all worked fine. Newer firefox with Ubuntu desktop doesn't work.

This is a two screen shots composite from an old test google cse (Custom Search Engine) that Gunnar and I used one time. It seems to work o.k. with Ubuntu and firefox.

Answer: Give us a few days.

We can make the box bigger, but I want to understand what is wrong. The attached is with this difference:

may be problem in difference between default size of elements in browsers. in FF input width: 200px
in Chrome width: 150px;

the adding to css:
input[name="q"] {
    width: 150px;
}
I think may fix this one

As far as I remember there wasn't a problem (when viewing the help with Firefox) a week or two ago. The problem may have only appeared with the latest update to Firefox (52.0.1), which appeared in my list of updates two or three days ago (Ubuntu 16.04). The problem occurs for all (HTML) versions of the desktop help (12.04, 14.04, 16.04, 16.10, 17.04).

Doug Smythies (dsmythies) wrote :

@Pavel: The problem is that we do not define the query box or the adjacent button box, we only define the overall containment box (or lack thereof, as is the subject of this bug report). They are done via a call to a Google CSE (Custom Search Engine). I'm trying to get access (for Gunnar and I) to the CSE.

Maybe something in the show_afs_search.js file might help, but it is an almost impossible to read and understand file. I did try a newer version of it last night though.

I think so too.

We don't currently, so let's do so. Please consider my latest commit to the desktop guide trunk:

O.K. Gunnar, Pavel, I now understand what I was not understanding before. It looks O.K. on my test web site. I'll assign myself the serverguide, no use fixing the 12.04 serverguide.

Thank you for your cooperation. I'm newbie here and I do not understand whole functions of the this site, so please let me know (In detail) if I need to do something.

@Pavel: There is nothing else you need to do. You both reported the issue and provided a solution, and that's much appreciated. We're about to implement it. (The pages are the result of a build process, so there are a few things to consider.)

Thanks again!
