  • VB5.5.5 Status Icon with IE


    After I upgrade from VB5.5.4 to VB5.5.5, the forum status icon behave differently (aspect ratio not square) on IE 11.
    I notice this happens to this forum as well if you view this forum from IE 11. All other browsers seem okay.

    IE11 is six years old and approaching End Of Life status as of January 14th, 2020. I'm surprised anyone is still using it.

      IE11 is however still supported (for now) so it should work, and I cannot replicate the issue.

      Make sure the browser is not in compatibility mode.

        Hi Mark,

        Thanks for the reply.

        I browse with IE 11 on few different PCs, they all behave the same.
        Browser not in compatibility mode.

          I can replicate the issue and it is definitely a browser rendering issue. The most likely issue is that IE doesn't properly support SVG Fragments. The version of Edge shipping with Windows 10 has problems with them as well. SVG images are newer technology that older browsers like IE can have problems supporting. If you are using vBulletin 5.5.5, or higher, you can upload custom PNG, GIF, or JPG icons in the channel manager to work around this issue on your site.

          At this time, Internet Explorer should be considered deprecated. It hasn't received updates to the newest standards in several years. Unless it is a catastrophic issue, we aren't going to devote a lot of time to resolve it. I recommend that users upgrade to the Chromium version of Edge which will be replacing it early next year across most operating systems (Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, MacOS, iOS, and Android).
