    Richfaces 3.3.3 not working on IE 8

    Sascha Janz Master

      we use Richfaces 3.3.3 with JSF 1.2.12.

       

      On some PC's we got trouble with several richfaces components not working.

       

      i also tested with the live demo.

       

      http://livedemo.exadel.com/richfaces-demo/richfaces/contextMenu.jsf?c=contextMenu

       

      the right click on the image does bring up the normal browser menu, not the contextmenu.

       

      if i try to navigate with th links on the left side to an other component, this also doesn't work.

       

      the browser version is internet explorer  8.0.7600.16385

       

      any ideas what the problem is?

       

      greetings

            on the same page i got also a dropdownmenu, with same(!!!) menuitems. this works quite well.

             

            it is defined as

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

             

            <rich:dropDownMenu value="#{Text.get('BUTTON_MYWF_EDIT')}">

             

            <rich:menuItem target="/wfindex.xhtml" id="openwflink2" status="globalStatus" submitMode= "ajax" value="#{Text.get('MENU_SHOW')}" limitToList="true" reRender="globalmessage" action="#{Bean.gotowf}">

             

            <a4j:actionparam name="currentstate"assignTo="#{Page.currentstate}" value="read"  />

             

            </rich:dropDownMenu>

             

             

            and rendered as

              Do you consider migrating to 4.x? RichFaces 3.3.3 was shipped quite ago ....

                yes, i do consider migrating to 4.x.

                 

                but some components which i really need were missing. that's the reason why i not already migrated. but now this handicap with the latest version  doesn't exist any more.

                 

                but anyway, i also tested the richfaces 4 showcase on that browser version and got similar problems. context menu doesn't appear at all. Links on the left side, for browsing through component's don't work.

                  Sascha, hopefully my migration guide will be useful for you as it covers all the compatibility issues between 3.3.x and 4.x
