One issue which is NOT fixed (I could not find the solution) -

- previously it was possible to hide the column using width:0 css

.active-column-1 {width:0}

This code will not work with Firefox 1.5 - instead you should use

.active-column-1 {display:none!important}


obj.setColumnValues([0, 2, 3, 4]);

Just want to give a feedback:

Scrollbar visibility bug, key navigation bug, columnheader with scrollbars bug: all are solved!

Thank you very much!

Best Regards...

I agree, it solves all the important grid problems introduced by Firefox 1.5.

One tiny problem remains: Firefox 1.5 complains about an unknown property text-overflow, in active-row-cell in grid.css.

Earlier firefox versions quietly ignore text-overflow, which only IE seems to support.

I downloaded the fixed library, and it is indeed much better in FF 1.5. A couple of remaining problems remain, however:

1) The bottom few (2?) pixels of the heading buttons are being cut off by the top of the first row of data, so the buttons work but they still look wrong.

2) The mouse wheel doesn't seem to scroll the grid vertically any more.

IE does not show either of these problems. We too are looking at a commercial license to use with IE and FF, and it's surprising how much this two pixel difference makes--the grid goes from great to unacceptable!

The demo's look okay on my machine, so there should be something in some style somewhere that I can make to fix this, but I have no idea what it is.

I found that this release still have problems with FireFox 1.5, namely column width resizing and style text-overflow:ellipsis.
I don't know how to fix the last one, but column width resizing issues can be fixed by replacing
<object>.style.<something>width=NNN or <object>.style.<something>width=<variable> with
<object>.style.<something>width="NNNpx" and
<object>.style.<something>width=<variable>+"px", correspondingly. If you are interested, I can send you the exact places where I implemented these changes.
