Fix for Tag Cloud Problem in Firefox 3.5

  • Jul. 7th, 2009 at 9:20 AM
UPDATE: This issue was fixed in Release 54.

As a few people have noticed, tags set to display as "cloud" rather than "list"
are not displaying properly to users who have upgraded to Firefox 3.5. It took a while to put all the pieces together, but I think I have come up with an explanation and a (cross-browser) solution. triadruid pointed out this entry listing CSS changes to Firefox, which mentions the :after pseudo-class now supporting the display: property. Some CSS at the bottom of the default Expressive stylesheet that uses the :after pseudo-class to "clear" floating element also is applied to list items in the sidebar. Since Firefox 3.5 now implements this pseudo-class properly, the list elements (i.e. the tag elements in clouds) now have display: block.

So, to fix it, add this line to your Custom CSS:
.widget-list li.item:after { display: inline; }

(If you don't understand or need more information, just ask in the comments.)
