Minor bug fix for GLT

With GLT, a side-effect happened in Firefox when using GLT for any link; the status text simply wasn’t shown in the web browser status field. This issue has now been addressed. Just download the new JavaScript file and things should work fine.

Please let me know if you encounter any problems.

    Sweet, it's fixed. Now that's called service πŸ™‚

    I'm not entirely sure this is a bug with GLT but it is some of the javascript your site, or maybe it's not a problem and I'm just seeing things.

    When the page has finished loading or thereabouts the text on the page gets slightly lighter/thiner. It doesn't do this with javascript disabled. It's doing it in both Firefox and Camino on my Macbook Pro but not in Webkit or Firefox Windows.

    Took some screenshots cause it's hard to explain so here goes looking at the first paragraph:

    Weird: Just after load text lighter than should be

    Difference: Selecting text returns it to normal for that line block

    Normal: Scrolling out of view and back returns text to normal

    Not sure what's causing it or if it's even your script I just noticed it on this site : )

    At your service! πŸ™‚


    Thanks for the screen dumps. I'm fairly sure that it has nothing to do with GLT, but it is still weird that it happens…

    For the time being, I'm clueless.

    Ok, done a brief test and it is GLT doing it. If you change "originalFadeLevel : 0.9" to 1 it stops doing it but I can't see why it's doing that. It's a little crazy, does it do it on your Mac?

  • Robert Nyman says:


    I'm sitting at work on a PC now, so I can't see it. But that's very weird. The fade level (i.e. the opacity set through the CSS) is only on the tooltip element, not on anything else in the web page…

  • Kanashii says:

    Wow, Mozilla has some really odd rendering bug going on here. I've tried a few things and it's has something to do with the glt div and it's opacity and Mozilla doing weird things but at least it's not the code so no bug in the javascript : ) Just for fun scroll down a bit and refresh the page as long as it's not at the top it won't dull straight away but where the glt tooltip shows up whatever is under it dulls same with selecting text. Ah well I'll live.

    Oh well, I guess have to accept this. Maybe it'll be gone in Firefox 2 (which should be released very soon).
