So, I was working on making my webshop IE and Edge ready an stumbled on the following problem in IE: my background would not y-repeat and would only take the height (as it seemed) of the screen. After stackoverflowing my question (because I assumed it was pure a HTML/CSS + IE issue), someone mentioned something about setting the height of my page-wrapper to
auto. When I did this, it still not worked while it worked for him in IE. So, digging into the code, I saw that Magento created a
.ie11 class to my
page-wrapper with only the following style:
height: 100%. I overwrote the style with
height: auto and now everything works fine.
My question is: why does this happen in Magento 2 and what is the reason that the style
height: 100% is applied to it?
