jEdit Community - Resources for users of the jEdit Text Editor
In firefox, drop downs are not legible. They are close to zero width. Simple CSS fix.

The community web site, for ages, has had drop downs that cannot be read, because their width is screwed up.

The problem is by the following CSS rule (around line 38 of style1.css)

.box * {
max-width: 100%; /* make sure textarea's and inputs do not overflow the containing box */
}

The * makes EVERYTHING have this max-width, and it is not needed.

Removing it sorts it out. If you really want this just for text areas and inputs, then use this:

.box textarea, .box input {
max-width: 100%; /* prevent overflow of the containing box */
}

This is critical, for it prevents using the web site effectively under Firefox (which I imagine is a LARGE audience for this site) because you can't read the drop downs. User participation will hopefully increase when this is done.
