Description Guillaume Ferrero 2014-12-28 00:29:48 UTC
Most of the navigation menu on the Gentoo Wiki (present on all pages) is broken on browsers having full stylesheet support but no javascript support. Specifically, this affects the drop down menus (e.g. "User", "more"). This hinders access to many fundamental features, such as user login and page history, except when knowing the full URL in advance.

This problem appeared with the introduction of the "Tyrian" MediaWiki theme.

Tested on Firefox 24.8.0 and Seamonkey 2.31 with javascript disabled.

I was not able to confirm this on QupZilla with javascript disabled. But I do support the modern web standards notion that javascript should purely be used for enhancement, and never be essential for navigation.
Comment 2 Guillaume Ferrero 2014-12-29 01:51:33 UTC
I can confirm that this does not seem to affect QupZilla 1.8.4 with javascript disabled.
Comment 3 Guillaume Ferrero 2014-12-29 01:55:25 UTC
Please disregard my previous comment, it DOES affect it after restarting the browser.
Comment 4 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2016-02-06 09:27:06 UTC
I can confirm that this is also an issue with Firefox (38.6.0) and javascript.enabled=false.
Especially, "Log in" and "History" are not accessible.
