Classic edit toolbar buttons fail in IE6 when WikiEditor automatically falls back
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Screenshot IE6 with error dialog open

WikiEditor does a little browser detection to automatically fall back to the classic toolbar when on some known-broken browsers like IE 6.

Unfortunately it looks like something in the behavior for the toolbar buttons doesn't get fully left alone; when clicking any of the buttons (bold, nowiki, etc) in this mode I get a JS error:

'$iframe' is null or not an object

Disabling the WikiEditor extension, this doesn't happen.

Tested on prototype r82004 and trunk r82002

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
