[Resolved] Fixed Column Width in Firefox = Variable Width in IE ?

  • IE views widths and heights the same way Firefox views min-width and min-height. Set a *hight* in a div, and Firefox will retain that number – if you set it to 100px, then in Firefox, by God, it’s 100px and no more. In IE, it’s 100px, unless the content is bigger, then it’ll push it down.

    To fix it, you have to set a conditional comment for IE and tell it *not* to display the “overflow” by setting “overflow:hidden;” Since this is happening in your posts, I’d say to do it on your entry class.

    It is much more advisable to resize your images before uploading! Anyway, posting multiple 80KB images in a post is very unfriendly behaviour 🙂

    Thanks doodlebee. The problem seems worse in IE 6 than 7. I’ll try your fix and see what happens!

    Moshu, I’d love it if all the users remembered to resize (and resample!) before uploading, but I’m trying to cover my butt so the site isn’t screwed if they do.
