Re: Table problems with Mozilla by Curtis Thompson on Sep 5, 2006 at 5:05:20 pm
[Paul Fechtmeister]"so it isn't always happening with Mozilla"
one quick point that i wanted to make - it's not so much "happening in mozilla" as it is that you started to do your design in ie, and are now seeing it in firefox, etc. - trust me that if you started the other way around, you'd have it working in firefox and you'd be here wondering how to get it so that it isn't happening in ie...there is a lot of cross-compatibility in between browsers these days, but there are some quirks. but to pick on mozilla isn't fair...both browsers have wacky little issues like this.
if you drop the "float: right;" from your nav css class attributes, this should go away. not sure why you want to float that table cell right, but that is causing your issue in that mozilla is parsing that a little too literally...
What I meant by container..... I was recently advised on a flash site that I was wanting to scale when the browser was scaled. In Dreamweaver I set it to 100% and it worked fine in IE. When previewed in Mozilla Firefox it was tiny and wouldn't scale.
A very astute COWer mentioned the container thing and it worked. I guess I was just thinking that this might be the fix here too but I didn't quite follow the earlier advice so was probing.
I suppose you're right about the Mozilla pick on thingy but I'm also having problems with this site's http://www.kdp-ne.com "Portfolio" link loading and mainly in Mozilla.
I'm not looking to pick on anything it's just frustrating enough to get something working only to have it "kind of" work.
Thanks for your feedback on the float right... I'll look at that. I was wanting the little button gif's to stay to the right on the page so that's why I did it.. probably would just get away with right align or something.... right?
I'm always very happy when someone responds because we all comment by our own free will here and that's why I love this site.
The code between the curly brackets are CSS Styles. You define them in
the Head and then call them in the Body.
They're a great way to position/layout a web page. They're clean and
work with most browsers.
You're defining the attributes in the styles and then you're placing
your swf in a container.
Good luck and don't hesitate to ask more questions.
Also, I did see your suggestion on the CSS and I'll try that.
