Stumped on this one. The main nav and footer on this page look fine in IE8 on Windows 7. But in IE8 on Vista and XP the main nav and footer disappear. Is there a difference in the IE8 rendering engine across versions of Windows? Would obviously like to fix the IE8 problem on Vista and XP, without screwing up how the page correctly renders in IE8 on Windows 7.

Any guesses? Thanks!

(P.S. I should mention that although there is a footer showing up in IE8 on Vista and XP, it's the second level of the footer at the very bottom that has disappeared.)

I would start by looking in that lt7.css file. Is most of that code in there just to fix PNGs? If you kill the conditional link to that file, does it solve your problem (even if it creates a new problem)?

When I load the page in IE6 or IE7 on XP, it completely kills the browser - I get an error and the page disappears.

  • Thanks. Good thought @marcus. But even without the It7.css file the problem persists. But it got me thinking about some of the other off site files that are being pulled into the page. I'm going to start testing those, as at this point it's looking like more than just a simple CSS fix, especially like you mentioned, if the page is killing the browser. Andy Johnson over 6 years ago

Figured it out. Ended up being a problem with a javascript being used on the page. It adversely affected IE8 on Vista and XP. Fixed the javascript and everything is fine.
