IE8 Mobile Layout Flash

  • # June 17, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    While testing my “mobile-first” site in IE8 I noticed this annoying flash of default layout (the layout that would be shown were it not for respond.min.js). Is that something those users will have to live with, or is there a way to fix that?

    IE8 runs on mobile?

    From the respond js github documentation

    > Reference the respond.min.js script (1kb min/gzipped) after all of your CSS (the earlier it runs, the greater chance IE users will not see a flash of un-media’d content)

    That is where I have it. I even tried to add it before the css, but it is still flashing.

    See second bullet point in “Support & Caveats”. https://github.com/scottjehl/Respond#support–caveats

    The reason there is a flash, because the script is testing for feature, then creating it, then it re-draws the page…

    Ok, that’s what I thought, just didn’t know if there was any way to get around it.

    Thanks.
