Then I guess shouldn't tell you about how I banned myself the other day. 8O Now you can laugh.

Actually it was some glitch with the CrackerTracker MOD; banned everyone and anyone who tried to access the board. I learned about toolkit.php a little too late and ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the whole darn thing. Good fun.

Argh! I hate it when that happens.
toolkit was a really cool app that I download just cos it was available.
I never use it... except to find users with bad email addresses.

Does anyone else see a dotted line around a new tab when you select it? Bug?

No... that's Firefox... when you click on an item, including a link, or image link, it will always do that.
But you've probably just never noticed it before... it's quite normal. ;)

Yes but does not outline: none; in css remove it and make it look better? I will edit my CSS and see. If it does I will post as bug since it can be solved I think.

No... You don't understand... I'm serious, it's not CSS... it does it with everything... look at links when you click them (alt+click) to open them in a new tab, then check your page where you clicked the link... any site anywhere on the internet... it will have a dotted border around the link, image, or element you clicked on.

See?

Yes I know...BUT..since normally or in a lot of cases the link does a refresh you end up on a page without a dotted line around the image. On the permission screen as you do not fresh it stays and looks ugly.

Ok not the end of the world..but an aesthetic bug none the less as it can be solved with CSS.

See http://www.phpbbgarage.com/phpBB3/garag ... icle&CID=1

Click the tabs..notice no dotted line..

A simple

Code: Select all

	outline: none;
Added to a:visited does the trick and removes the ugliness.

However, it is bad for usability... especially if the CSS rules makes outlines disappear for :focus/:active which would make it hell for those attempting to navigate a UI via the keyboard. Things like this should be left up to the user to put into their user-side browser stylesheet.
