2.7 UI elements with border-radius AND background-images fail in Camino

Camino respects the border-radius css property used in the WP admin area, but when combined with a background image, the background image shows through the rounded corners.

Detailed explanation can be found here:

i don't know of a CSS hack to target just Camino, or even if WP would use one if there was one.

  • Version set to 2.7

I am having the same issues with the 2.7 admin interface in FF, as reported in this WP forum post.

I have upgraded this evening to the latest build available through automatic upgrade (rev9617) and this issue still persists.

Given Firefox 3 supports the CSS properly, Is there a need to remove the background image for previous versions of FF?

Supporting old versions of FF/Opera/Safari/etc is a bit different from supporting old versions of IE, Most of the former, tend to upgrade their browsers to the latest version more often than those who use IE.

Rather than removing the background image, why not remove the rounded corners for FF2 and below? Opera doesn't support them at all, so users of FF2/below would see the same thing that Opera users now see.

I agree with your statement that most FF/Opera/Safari/etc users tend to upgrade to the latest version more so than IE users, but there are some FF plugins that I use that aren't available to me in FF3 the last time I checked, so that is the reason I haven't upgraded yet. FF2 isn't that out-of-date that it shouldn't be supported.

The latest nightly build (9621) has fixed the issue I reported with the rounded corners on the menu where the active section is at the top or bottom, and I can verify that fix in both the fresh and classic themes. Perhaps that fix needs to be applied to the buttons as well?

Hm, FF2's EOL is mid-december, I guess it should stay supported until at least then.

I personally see it as a browser bug, which should be dealt with by the browser rather than being worked around on WP's side.

If WP was to work around it, The only method would be to move all the rounded corner definitions to a seperate CSS file and enqueue it for certain browsers, In reality, that would probably make the code smaller and easier to manage changes to it

DD32 is right, this is CSS 3 property and proper support for it will eventually make it in all browsers.
