    Default Most functional UI theme for Web Client

    Hi all,
    We're noticing many differences in the web client behavior based on browser, theme, plain text vs html, etc. Sometimes the cursor blinks, sometimes not. Sometimes the tab is predictable, sometimes not. Sometimes the initial position of the cursor in a window is appropriate, sometimes not.

    We've decided upon Firefox (current) for the browser and now, for our rollout, were contemplating one theme for starters so we can predict it's behavior. I need to figure out which themes works "the best".

    Has anyone already gone to the trouble of comparing themes and their idiosyncrasies? Or have a better suggestion than plugging through them option by option to figure it out? If so, please share. Thank you.

    Not exactly new-there are a bunch of little bug fixes requested

    I know what you mean about tab-in calendar quick add it skips over all the actual field options, and I think in both places it skips over the time section.

    Same for the cursor-doing a quick add/double click etc (not the ~ and not the normal 'new' button), forces me to click the subject and use my mouse for every action.

    I do notice border differences and what not on themes
    CSS is handled differently for IE vs Firefox VS Safari

    Safari is a little behind all together-solutions are being worked on-but it's especially dysfunctional in the calendar.

    I'd be interested to see a detailed list as well-but I don't have the time
    (be sure to start with a cleared cache every time!)

    I see these problems in Firefox as well. The tab key does not go where it is suppose to most of the time, so I have to keep clicking in the next box with the mouse. Also, it does not help that the cursor does not show up in most text fields either.

    Oh I wasn't trying to single out safari, but ya tabbing definitely needs to be fixed.
    It's been a bug for a while:

    I didn't mean my post as rebuttal of yours mmorse.

    I was just pointing out that I too was seeing it, and the cursor issue is very irritating.

    I work in an organization where everyone is technically competent enough to navigate their entire desktops without mice-and it was the first thing they noticed -"we can't tab to these fields"
