I am testing my website in Chrome. When I open "Join" page and try to make a new sign-up, the words on the left are missing: Username, Password, Confirm password, Email address, all missing from the screen in Chrome. This page opens normal in Internet Explorer. Is there something I missed, or its the software itself? Thanks.

Drat, I was getting this and I was hoping it was just my machine.

Google Chrome has developed a nasty rendering bug stopping lots of form fields showing. The fix is in global.css (Admin Zone > Themes > Edit CSS > global.css) to change:

Code

body .accessibility_hidden { /* {$,Contents should be made visible (or interpreted) for accessibly representation but hidden for normal visual display} */
   /* Shift it out of the viewport */
   position: absolute;
   top: -256000px;
   left: 0;
}
to:

Code

body .accessibility_hidden { /* {$,Contents should be made visible (or interpreted) for accessibly representation but hidden for normal visual display} */
   /* Shift it out of the viewport */
   position: absolute;
   top: -256000px;
   left: 0;
   display: block;
}

This works around the bug. Chrome is not properly keeping track of text flow.

In fact, it's not happening to me now. I was trying to make a test case to report to them, but I guess they auto-updated with a fix already.

One of my users had this issue, thanks for the fix. Will it be part of v8? or will i need to do the modification again when we upgrade?
