I attempted to replicate this issue in multiple browsers and on a Windows 10 machine running Firefox 42 with no success.

  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Let's consolidate #34604 and #33715 into here since this has a patch.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 4.6

I think the issue will also be fixed with a rewrite to how panels get represented in the DOM (#34391). /cc @delawski

That's right, @westonruter. This issue should be fixed along with #34391.

I believe the same issue has been reported in #35947, which has a 'dirty' patch that was not included in 4.5.

@delawski any concerns with ticket_34622.patch?

#13 @delawski

@westonruter - just as @ariwinokur noted earlier, I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. However, the patch itself looks reasonable to me and is a step in right direction.

The fact that I can not reproduce the error, does not mean that there is no error. There are in fact 3 tickets about the same thing.
Not sure, but I think that the half of all WordPress users can reproduce the error!
One half of all Internet users, surfing the Internet on mobile phones, the other half on a 27 inch monitor with large windows font.
The tendency is that those in the first group during the time be converted into another group, and not vice versa.
This is not only cosmetic error, but it makes Customizer almost not usable.

For those that have lost patience, add the following to your theme's admin CSS file:

.accordion-sub-container.control-panel-content {
	left: 100%;
	width: 100%;

.in-sub-panel #customize-info,
.in-sub-panel #customize-theme-controls > ul > .accordion-section {
	left: -100%;
	width: 100%;

In 37984:

Customize: Fix panel indentation in Firefox.

In Firefox on Windows the menus and widgets panel weren't fully visible due to a miscalculation of the width of a panel, caused by a visible scrollbar.

Props wpfo.
Fixes #34622.
