People picker popup box dosnt' work with firefox

  Asked By: Carmen    Date: Oct 02    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3388

I am hoping there is a KB out there I couldn't find.

When a user is trying to lookup a person via the picker popup, we can seach for
users no problem, however, when the user is selected the pop up goes away and
the people field is not populated.

Our uses all use firefox 3.0, and we are using moss enterprise. Does anyone know
how to make this work?

It's known issue that is resolved in SP2. It affects more than just the people
picker. It's any pop  up window that is open using showModalDialog. From our
research when we discovered the bug last year, we found that FF 3.0 and Safari
3.0 started supporting the JavaScript function showModalDialog. That threw off
some js logic that Microsoft used to determine how to open the proper window.

Had this issue when we customized our master page but the cause was that the
picker is a hack done with client side script and not really an ASP.NET object.
It is a custom control object and somehow I shifted the tables so that when the
JavaScript was render it displayed in the wrong area. I was lucky enough to find
the code mistake I made, but foxfire, IE, Safari all render different tags and
scripts differently, if it renders the tag / script at all.
