Summary0000805: Tooltips not showing properly in IE 7 & 8
DescriptionWhen mouse-hovering over settings item in the page accessed through "My Info"-> "Edit preferences" -> "System configuration", the tooltips are displayed in white fonts over the light-gray background, missing the black tooltip background shown in Firefox, for instance.

I believe that would be true for all tooltips (I've seen it with those over the grid-views.)

Tooltips were readable and correctly displayed in release 2.2.
TagsNo tags attached.

I have the same problem. Unfortunately, IE8 is used in my Company under Windows XP.

It's a known IE8 issue with RGBA-color. I solved the Problem by add the follow code on the end of the stylesheet-file (/style/web2project/main.css):

/* Hack for IE8 (rgba-Problem) */
#tiptip_content {
background-color: transparent\9;

Ofcourse you must change the file main.css for every used style.

I have tested the fix with IE8. It works, but without transparency (fallback to rgba) and without Arrow. For me it's ok.

Thank you!
