FancyBox and IE8 -- Fix the 2-4 second freeze after page load.


Recommended Posts

Under IE8 my osc2.3.1 store has been freezing for 2-4 seconds after page load, the entire browser freezes and becomes unresponsive for 2-4 seconds...

I have been trying to find out why for several days now (turning things on and off to see caused it) and finally found it's fancybox's CSS -- not it's javascript, it's CSS!


I googled around and found I was not alone in this.


basically edited the fancybox css file and commented-out (or just removed..) any mention of: filter: SomethingOrOther;



.fancybox-ie6 #fancybox-close {
 background: transparent;
/*  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='fancybox/fancy_close.png', sizingMethod='scale');*/


... etc.


Hope this helps at least one person! ;)


Dunno what those effects where supposed to be but they're causing a problem... however I've looked at the resulting image-popup under IE6, 7 and 8 and they look the same as before to my eyes... so whatever the effect was, it was probably wrong to begin with..
