RT 4.0.5 and IE8 very slow with the new menu

Hi,

RT 3.8 works well on Firefox/Chrome/IE8 . RT 4.0.5 works well on
firefox/chrome but is very slow on IE8. Based on my first tests, it’s
due to the menu bar present in web2 and aileron themes. RT4/IE8 works
correctly with ballard theme (which hasn’t this menu bar).

Has someone already experienced this? Any idea where I can find (and
fix) the root cause?

Thanks,
L.B.

Hi Tim,

Thanks. Unfortunately, the fix described in the ticket doesn’t work (I
did flush my cache and removed mason data).

I hope the new version (4.0.6 ?) without PIE.htc will be released
soon, our migration from RT 3.8 is waiting for this :-/

If manually removing PIE.htc as described in the ticket doesn’t fix
your issue, I’m not sure that the next release will fix it, since the
branch doesn’t do much beyond that 4.0/remove-css3pie

I’d do some digging and make sure you fully removed it and don’t see
it being served to IE8 anymore.

It certainly worked for us… As Kevin says, check that you really have removed it and don’t have some extraneous cache layer somewhere still keeping hold of it.

I don’t know if it’s related to PIE.htc, but there are also annoying
bugs with IE, see attached.

This has been fixed in

Ok thanks. Sorry for mixing 2 problems in the same ticket. The
alignment is fixed now.

I continue my tests with PIE.htc and let you know.

github. It’s fast know, thanks !
