Firefox not recognising links as links

Hi all,

Wonder if anyone could help.

Firefox is not recognizing links in my header and left menu - it does recognize links in right menu and footer... can't work out why. Ie reads links no problem.

I've rewritten lots of the code, but nothing makes a difference. Rewrote css link styling, no difference - problem is not with the styling because the cursor doesn't even change into a hand when you scroll over links.

What have I left out or forgotten to close?

Thanks in advance.

T.

Hi there abhainn,

this answer will not make any sense to other members when
your link is removed by the censor but here it is anyway....


#sidebar {
z-index:1; /* or higher value */
.....
.....
.....
}

Thanks a million, birdbrain, I'll try that.

I'd better check the rules then?

Hi there abhainn,

if you look in the "HTML Forum", you will see that
your post has also had the same treatment as this.

Of course, as you have already discovered, other
forums have different policies. ;)

z-index is a common issue when apparently properly coded links don't seem to work in all browsers. It's like covering a physical push button with a piece of clear plastic.
