I have this strange occurring bug in IE7.

On some articles, say 9100123862 (but for some reason not on 9137135120), in the gray information box (which is float:left) I can't double click to select text with IE7.

I tried setting a display:table-cell property on the ISBN fields, but that results in a need to triple-click! However, try double click or select Bandtyp: inbunden or Utgiven: 200909 --- it doesn't work because here I have not altered the display property.

The problem seems to be caused by the floating description text elements.

What I found did help was removing float: left; from div.productAuthor. A remnant from an earlier solution, now obsolete. It worked out well and will publish this week.

Lesson learned? Be wary of nesting floats, I guess.

It is indeed due to the float rendering bug of IE7. If you were to add this to the css class productInfo.

div.productInfo {
  /* along with your current styles */
  position: relative;
  z-index: 999;

You will find that you can select the text in productInfo with double-click. I do not know why on some pages, it worked, I can only guess that the wrapping on the productDescription div around the productInfo div is preventing the selection and it depends on the text within the description.

Hope this helps!

  • Soory to hear that. I worked on my side by hacking via the developer tool. Guess it's not good enough. o.k.w almost 8 years ago
