It has been brought to my attention that using Chrome some icons do not appear correctly or at all.

Since i never use Chrome, i didn't notice. Everything shows well in IE, Firefox, Opera. Not in Chrome.

In Chrome images like



have a problem.

Yes a couple of other AF 5 i checked i didn't see that problem.

I'm it only me, maybe something with the skin or the container.

You've got an auto height set on IMG coming from somewhere, that appears to be doing it

I disabled the client resource management and i will try to find from where it comes.

Thank you

It looks like the Tidy skin had max-width:100% in the IMG tag as well, I think that, in combination with the height:auto was causing it

Also had this problem with Active Forums using the Gravity skin

Removing the max-width:100% under the IMG tag fixed this for me - it was located in both of the bootstrap CSS files.

Please note that discussions are not happening any more on this site. All discussion has been moved to GitHub located at

However, removing the img max-width:100% isn't necessarily the best way to accomplish this. Something like .activeForums img{ max-width:none;} does a better job as it will ensure that not all images on your site are prevented from resizing.

However, there have been some major advances in Active forums since all of this information has come out. Please join in on the discussions at our new github location. The most recent version of AF is now fully responsive and these issues don't exist any more.

thank you! I did end up replacing "100%" with "none" but as you say the .activeForums img{ max-width:none;} is the correct solution. much appreciated.
