[Resolved] transparent backgrounds in Firefox

  • barishiman


    Ok, I posted something earlier about a background problem I was having with my website. I know now that it is some sort of transparency problem. I have a wrapper that has three layers floating above it. These three layers have transparent as the background color, even though that transparent is the default setting in CSS.

    In IE, the page is decoded properly but in Firefox doesn’t show the background. I have gone through my CSS and layers and everything has been re-validated. Funny thing is Firefox was decoding the page fine until last week.

    Any suggestions?

    Firefox isn’t showing #wrapper because the height is zero.

    HTML > BODY > DIV#blog > DIV#wrapper{
    height: 0px
    background-image: url(...wrapper_bg.jpg)
    background-repeat: repeat-y

    Firefox is calculating a zero height for #wrapper because its descendants or floated, probably — it’s not actually a background issue.

    You can use

    #wrapper{ overflow: auto;}



    overflow: auto works great, thanks
