    initial v1  
    11Would you mind providing some detail as to the platforms on which you are experiencing a "badly broken Dashboard", or even a screenshot? The patched CSS works well for me on FF10 ESR, FF18, Chrome, Chrome OS, and IE10... regardless of the state of the menu, or it being toggled once the page is rendered.

    3 Under some circumstances the columns may overlap by a few pixels, but I do "badly broken" would not be a fair characterization of the situation, which is an artifact of different rendering engines handling CSS differently; it does not occur universally. Regardless, it is central to the whole purpose of this patch: The *user* should have the power to control their dashboard display, as they did pre 3.4. If a user wishes to sacrifice a small amount of "beauty" for functionality, they should be able to do so. If a 4-column interface is too muddled for them with their particular browser and window-size, they can opt to use 3 columns. This allows more people more options, versus the situation inflicted on users since 3.4, in which those whom have the ability to display 4 columns well (see screenshots) are precluded from doing so by arbitrary constraints.

    55The 3.4 change was made to remove JavaScript dependency. These patches preserve that, while restoring the full range of functionality previously available.
