Opera Browser Usage and Support Forum

Bottom Margin in Opera-->None.
Opera doesn't recognize bottom margin/padding.

Two quick ones:

Mozilla 1.1 has trouble displaying certain images:
The image “http://here/myimage.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Say what?

Also, if you have more than one screen of information in Opera, your content will sit stuck on the status bar- no amount of padding in the body or column div, and no amount of margin space to the last element or item will change this...

IE works- Mozilla reacts the same as Opera, so I'm guessing they're correct in their rendering.

Any help is appreciated.

I have both browsers and cannot duplicate what you're saying.

As far as Opera goes, are you using an older version? I used to have some problems in v5 with absolute positioning, but that's gone away (or perhaps it's because I stopped using some of the techniques because of this).

Maybe an example?

Hey- The link in my profile (if you'd like)...

The Contact Section...

In IE6- You can see space between the status bar and the footer box (in the middle column).

In Opera/Mozilla - You'll see it stuck like glue?

--> I may have to fiddle with my local server as far as the Mozilla images are concerned.

In your div#left, you have height: 100%; I didn't look at anything else, but on the page you showed, that's the CSS. That's the longest div I see on that page.

You have 4 css includes, but with a cursory look what happens if you put a padding-bottom or margin-bottom in there?

What bobriggs says, change 100% to 800px and it should render the way you want.

div#left, div#center, div#right all had height: 100%; I need that for the left and right <div>'s, however, removing the center height did the trick.

Nice One- Thanks you guys!
