Dialog behaves badly if it is created from relative element in Opera

Blocked by: Blocking:

If the element from which the dialog is created has position: relative, the resulting dialog behaves badly. Mainly because there are several places where the relative sizing in Opera is handled specially.

  • When the dialog is resized for the first time, it will jump few pixels down/right.
  • When the dialog is shrunk from the left, the content will move right.
  • If the dialog is opened after being closed, only the title bar is visible until the dialog is dragged/resized.

Workaround would be to set the position of the dialog to static.

Shouldn't that be position:absolute instead of static?

Relative positioned dialogs aren't supported. Use absolute positioning.
