I noticed one glitch which I manage to reproduce across all browser Firefox Nightly 31 (with new profile), Chromium 36.0.1925.0 and IE 11.0.7. During whole time I was logged in with same account.


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open: http://www.neowin.net/
  2. Click on Settings: bv1zTRA.png
  3. Now try to click "Close" or "Cancel", opened dialog does not go away. jBmUnOK.png


Actual Result:

Nothing happens when click on Close or Cancel and dialog stays


Expected Result:

Dialog should go away.



Click away from the dialog does make it go away.


I hope you don't mind such small petty issue bug report but fix would be welcome...

I can confirm this glitch , the only way to escape it is to refresh the page.

However I bet this ain't Neowin's fault but the board's , I had the same issues when I tried uploading a picture on the forums (wich is fixed now).

IE 11.0.4 / Windows 7

Confirmed in Chrome (old version as at work)


The X and the Cancel link do not work


Saving settings does for me though and the box closes

this has been brought up a few times before if you looks through site/forum issues


just click somewhere outside the settings box and it will go away

In the past few months I noticed this issue only when not logged in but it worked fine once logged in.

Reported, but yes clicking outside of the dialog makes it go away (settings are saved when that button is used)
