    We are currently seeing an issue when attempting to put a Telerik RadButton inside a table when rendering the page with Firefox 2. The button will not render as a whole, instead the button left-hand-side will render above the button. All other browsers do not have this issue, especially the modern browsers. We're aware that FF2 is old, but the client is insisting support. We're not having any other rendering issues with FF2 with other Telerik ASP.NET controls.

    Also, if the table is inside a div we will see the right-hand-side of the button render below the button.

    I've attached a screenshot of the render issue, and I'm including the a simple markup if someone is interested in replicating the issue.

    Any ideas what's wrong?
    Should the Telerik RadButton support Firefox 2?
    Is there something we need to do in our style sheets to get Firefox 2 support?
    <%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="buttonTest.aspx.cs" Inherits="LAWA.Portal.apps.lawa.pages.telerik.buttonTest" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" TagPrefix="telerik" %>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

        <title>telerik button test</title>
        <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
            <table width="500px" border="1">
                    <td >
                        <telerik:RadButton ID="btnTest" runat="server" Text="Button Test"/>

    Hello Ben,

    Our support doesn't cover the RadButton under Mozilla Firefox 2 for several reasons. Please note that the official support for Firefox 2 ended in Mid-December 2008, as stated in this article. The RadButton control was added to the RadControls suite with the Q3 2010 release, on November 10, 2010 and since Firefox 2 was no longer supported, it wasn't taken in consideration. Furthermore, on that year the popularity of Mozilla Firefox 2 was around 0.4%, which is another well-grounded reason for excluding the browser from our support in this case.

    Please advise your client to update your version of Mozilla Firefox in order to be able to fully take advantage of the capabilities of the RadButton control.
