I found the .css hack, but I also found complaints that it causes problems on certain websites.

I was thinking it might but I haven't encounted any sites with a problem yet.

Good idea. Actually this one should do it. Just change the blackify.href='http://www.jabago.com/tools/CSS/blackifyCSS.css' line, am I right?

This should work. I recommend putting it in a script button though, because it seems to resize the fonts, reguardless of whether there is a size already set or not.

Code: Select all

var avantbrowser_defaultFontSize = '10pt';
var avantbrowser_Inputs = document.getElementsByTagName('input');
var avantbrowser_Btns = document.getElementsByTagName('button');

function avantbrowser_loop (object)
{
	for (i=0; i < object.length; i++)
	{
		if (object[i].style.fontSize == '') object[i].style.fontSize = avantbrowser_defaultFontSize;
	}
}

avantbrowser_loop(avantbrowser_Inputs);
avantbrowser_loop(avantbrowser_Btns);

Faster than a speeding bullet. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's another of addonfan's scripts!

You know that your efforts will be wasted once Microsoft fixes IE8 to resolve the issue...

It's better to spend a few minutes to fix/workaround a bug that people are having troubles with, than to have them wait a month or more for an official fix.

I haven't really looked into it much but is it an IE 8 issue, or is it simply an incompatibility between the old code and the new rendering engine that can easily be fixed in HTML/CSS? I'm going to have to guess it's the latter.

If you just use IE it's easy to fix.

Go to tools > Internet Options > Advanced and unclick the option for enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages.

But this does not work in Avant. I tried. IE works fine but Avant is still tiny.

I've been using this other workaround since April without issue.

Oh....happyhappyjoyjoy....my text field boxes are back to normal...

I'm nowhere near being a techie, so have had to use Chrome and FF due to being unable to see my text entry fields to log into anything...I had even tried to go back to IE7 but noooo...apparently, thats not allowed...and don't even think of uninstalling IE altogether, or you take out half of your Microsoft programing...Very Funny. Not.

Anyhow...thanks for the quick fix...

I've been using
I have been looking all day long to fix this problem and finally did it! It was bugging me so much because I don't use any other browser but updated to IE 8 2 days ago just to have it. Used the IE fixed but still was having problems with Avant so happy to find your notepad ie8.css fix! :thumbup:
