Topic: Fullscreen button being weird

Hi, I've just updated my site galleries with the latest simpleviewer.  Here is an example: http://www.bloodforthebaron.com/comics/ … index.html

The fullscreen button works beautifully using Firefox, the browser header is overwritten and the images fill the screen.  But when viewed in Internet Explorer all that happens is the background turns white.

Please could somebody help me fix this?  I admit I never use IE so I may just need to adjust my PC settings.

Re: Fullscreen button being weird

What version of IE are you using? In IE 9 the background stays black. You could also try giving your HTML file a doctype and fixing your HTML errors.

IE8 I think.  The background colour is the least of my worries though, does the fullscreen button work in IE9 please?

All of those apparent errors look to be in my navigation buttons, which work fine.

Re: Fullscreen button being weird

OK I've installed IE9, with no change.  If I hit the fullscreen button the browser borders are still visible and the background turns white.

Also, in IE the shaded bar at the bottom never fades.

Looks like you are viewing the Mobile (non-flash) player in IE. Please check you have flash installed in IE: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/155/tn_15507.html
