Firefox 39 and map tooltips

Postby John Kirk » Thu Jul 09, 2015 12:08 pm

Firefox 39 does not handle spacing on a page with an embedded map properly since version 39. You'll see that map balloons do not function on mouseover unless you're the same distance away from it as the space on the page between the margins and the map. This doesn't affect full-screen maps, since there is no margin/border. I've filed a bug with Bugzilla, in case anyone wants to see the technical details: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1182139
Hopefully, there will be a fix for this in a near-future release, but who knows... In the meantime I may need to convert all maps to full-screen maps or redesign tooltips - haven't decided yet.

So this means if you're a firefox user and haven't updgraded to 39, if you want maps to work here don't upgrade yet. This does not affect other browsers.

Mozilla is taking the position that this is Google's bug, and that FF39's new X,Y offset change is correct:

Seems that it may be something Google has fixed on the 3.0 API (or this was working all along on Google Maps API v3). I updated the scripts on LoJ to point to API v=3 and they are as expected working now. I also updated the Mozilla and Google bug boards with this finding.
