Welcome to WebmasterWorld Maria!

Whilst it is usually recommended to use CSS for adding a background color to a table, the

attribute on the
element should work as expected in Firefox.

You should start by seeing if there is any errors in your current markup which are stopping the background color from showing up. You can use the HTML validator:

  • W3C HTML validator [validator.w3.org]
