Image hover problem in Netscape/Firefox browsers..

Works fine in IE and Opera

Okay, I'm having a problem with my site in Firefox/Netscape Browsers, which is not a problem in IE or Opera. Images which have hyperlinks are moving out of place and causing the tables to be distorted when hovering over the hyperlinked images. Why is this happening (has it happened to anyone else) and what can I do to fix it? I've tried everything and can't come up with a solution, and it's very frustrating. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Hi ExtremeExports,
I think firefox is a lot of hype. I have encontered many problems with it. It appears to have a lot of problem with nested things such as nested iframes. the second iframe does not have the dimensions you give it. Also it can open 1 pop up but fails to open a popup within a popup(I don't have auto pupops but the ones that you have to click a button or link for). I wish they would fix it or people would stop using it. It's very hard to program for.

I've seen this Moz problem in my work and other pages as well, but every time the css was not declaring complete rules for images inside anchor tags. I suggest looking at all the margins/padding for images and all the a: pseudoclasses you've declared.

I almost want to put the following on auto-post ...

No one browser is flawless ... no one page layout/markup/etc. is ideal for all circumstances ... if all you want is to rant do it constructively ... otherwise:

It is always helpful if you include the following:

  • OS and browser(s) that show/don't show the problem.
  • Full DocType used.
  • Brief appropriate HTML code snippet.
  • Same for CSS, if used.
  • anything else that might have a bearing on the problem.

Without some details we are guessing in the dark ... perhaps helpfully, probably not.

I didn't know that the post was so uninformative. I thought it was pretty clear what I was trying to explain. But nevertheless, I figured it out. I have a border style in my hover class. I added a new class for the images with links, so that when hovering the border-style is none. It's fixed now, thanks.

Hi iamlost,

** OS and browser(s) that show/don't show the problem.
** Full DocType used.
** Brief appropriate HTML code snippet.

function WinOpen() {
<INPUT TYPE="button" name="Window" value="Click to suggest
a link or category" onclick="WinOpen()">

in the child window the following fails to open a new window:

<A HREF="addalnk.shtml?blahblah" TARGET="-blank" onclick="self.close()">Suggest a link</A>

Thought I'd add this also:
doesn't work in primary window and only works in a pop up. IE will close primary after warning.

also triple click in IE selects the whole line in FF doesn't.
