    FF is not working with me. The tutorial I'm doing is with the style sheet embedded. My raido buttons and check boxes are soupose to be red. My text area is soupose to be red, and I should have a red scroolbar in the form and the webpage itself. I fig there is no red scrollbar on the webpage because there just is not enough content and that does make sense to me. Even though my IE windows does have one. But I don't understand why my buttons or text area is not red or does not have a scrollbar it just makes the box bigger instead. Everything is working right in IE. I went back though my code to make sure it was not a typo on my side causing this and I can't find any. So I'm wondering is this one of those fubars where ff and css are not playing togather nicely? It appears to be just total ignoring it. :cry:

    Have you tried Opera and Safari yet? :twisted:

    Getting things to work as you would expect, across multiple user agents is one of the most frustrating things about web design.

    IE is usually the worst culprit at not playing nice with the latest standards, though inexplicable oddities can crop up in any one of the most popular browsers.

    Ive found this very useful when testing websites, http://browsershots.org/ - Browser shots it allows you to get a screenshot of what your webpage would look like in lots of different web browsers. Hope thats useful

    Opera is going to be my 3rd browser. Haven't downloaded it yet though. I think 3 is enough. After all the talk we had on wag thread. I was expecting IE to give me the hard time. I am really surprised that it is FF. Do you think someone ratted on me to ff and my true feelings? :ohmy

    I'm just going to copy and paste and the code directly from htmlgoodies in to a new notepad and open that one up in ff and see if does the same thing. That should tell me if it is me. Most time errors are the person typing. :oops:

    I feel for ya mitzsy -- when I was doing web stuff before, FF was always a problem. Of course, we all know who to blame for that, but that doesn't take away the pain :rolleyes: Its amazing how a 'standard' really isn't standardized, unless you're coding for IE (and even that doesn't hold true all the time). Keep on keepin' on, sis.

    Its them dam open source crowd who to blame fortch. If they just join the heard like the rest of us good little cows and walk off the bluff when prodded, I'd only have one browser to contend with and my brain would not be so put out! :twisted::biggrin

    Thanks for the encourgment Fortch. I'm starting to understand a little bit more so it is getting easier. And to be honest working with more then one browser I seem to be learning the code a little bit better. Who knew? :biggrin

    Checkboxes/radiobuttons and such are handled differently with certain browsers it can be quite a pain, scrollbar colouring is also something they handle different as far as I know only IE supports coloured scrollbars - its not a w3c standard.

    I use http://browserpool.de/ to check my sites.
    It works very well and you can actually brows your site live on a number of different OS and browsers.
