@JimmyJazz Ok I am back, I have just took a quick look at this, now when I add the jquery Tabs to a blank page and add the latest version of the extension using the lat&long already in the properties and just add two pins for images it seems to work as it should. One issue could be is that you are only setting the size of the map to 400px x400px instead of setting the size to fit the area of the Tab area that it is resting in. Another thing I also noticed is this, can you say what version of the jQuery Tabs are you using? looking at the source it looks like you are using a very old version of jQuery ie 1.4.2 were the version I am using is 1.7.2, on another note it may also be a conflict with the discus script that your using. As I have said I have just quickly looked at this, what I would ask is this, try inserting a jQuery tabs on a blank page insert the map extension and see if it still gives this and let me know...as always I will do what I can to assit.

Hi Baconfries,

jquery is same as yours 1.7.2 (live site maybe older version as when it was installed but the issue is still exactly the same)

I tried what you suggested & created a new page & placed some text on 1st tab & a map inside the 2nd tab without any html boxes or disqus & found the following browsers rendered the page:

chrome - success
IE 8 - success
opera - success
safari - success
firefox v18 - failed

I made the map 95% the tab width & the icon still does not display in FF (i must drag down to the right)

I'm unsure if this is connected, but, I also found that Disqus does not work on firefox when nestled inside jquery tabs

Just wondering, were you able to replicate (on ff) the issue I described?
What version ff & was it success?

@JimmyJazz I will need to look at this further, on testing the map with the jQuery Tabs you can insert the map in the first with no issue it on on inserting in the second that it loses focus. If needed i will contact Pablo asking for his input to maybe why you can use on thr first and not others.

@redbadnap looking just at the screenshots alone (As I cant view the code of the page extension used on) it looks like you have not entered and height and width for either the map pin image and the shadow this would explain why it looks odd in various zoom.

@JimmyJazz I have found a little workaround insert the following in Page HTML Between <head></head>tags let me know if this works for you.

<style type="text/css">
.ui-tabs .ui-tabs-hide {
position: absolute !important;
left: -10000px !important;
display:block !important;
}
</style>

BF;
Is there anyway to "Skin" the Google Maps? I have seen on some sites where it is skinned to suit the overall look of the site. like this
