Help with CSS and Firefox

  • I designed this site using a CSS template and customized it. Overall it works great. However the footer jumps up a third of the way when viewing in Firefox (and possibly a browser used by Mac users) but works fine in Internet Explorer. I keep working on this but since my experience is low to moderate I am against a brick wall here. I use Frontpage to create and modify the design …it also does not of course present the problem there either. Please help 🙂

    That’s a mistake. Use only plain text editors, no wysiwyg editors.

    When display issues – always try to validate your site (it might not solve all the problems but it gets closer)
    http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.adventuresat50.com%2F

    Also, you should pick a less demanding document type than “Strict”.

    I’m using firefox on a mac and don’t see an issue.

    Validating is a good idea.

    There are some unconventional things going on so a transitional doctype will work better.

    If you could post a screenshot of what you want and what you see in firefox that would help.

    One thing I see: there is a table on the bottom whose only purpose seems to be to add a line. You could take out the table and add a style to the footer:
    border-top:1px solid #999;
    margin-top:30px;

    adding a margin top will increase the spacing between the body and the footer. Padding will adjust the spacing between the top border and the footer content.
