Internet Explorer 8 CSS flicker problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone and thanx for reading this post about the BIGGEST CSS headache I've had in my career as webdeveloper!


To explain the problem in short:

I've made a website for a client that for some strange reason flicker on refresh in IE8. If I hit the refresh button several times, also background images partly disappear(See the image below.. (and where backgroundimages disappear is random each time..))




I've tried to remove all JavaScripts: Does not solve it!

I've tried to partly remove CSS classes and ID's: Does not solve it!


I'm, for the first time in my career, completely stuck! It could be something in the XHTML markup thats causing it, or a combination of the CSS and the XHTML..


If you wish to help me, you can download a static html file and a few folders stuffed in a zip file. See the url below.

You can also see the working website with the bug at htt p://w ww.yndestadferi e.n o/


Thanx a MILLION for all help I can get:)

Terratuner, could you tell me how you fixed this problem?

I've been stuck on the same problem for weeks now and it is already a real pain in the ass.


The strangest thing is that often background images are only partly missing.

Just switching between windows with alt-tab is enough to let ie8 fix the broken parts.




edit: Also this only seems to appear with windows vista / ie8 and compatibilitymode off.
