Support » Fixing WordPress » What’s causing things to look different on IE and FF

  • Site:

    There are a lot of things that are displayed differently using firefox and IE on my site. I was wondering if somebody could tell me what in my code is causing these problems and how to fix them.

    Problem 1: I have an image right above where my post are displayed on my Index. I want the page to display how it looks on Internet Explorer with no gap between the Latest Movie Stinger News image and the posts. It puts a giant gap between the image and posts on firefox.

    Problem 2: The date and author text in Firefox is displayed in white how I set it by using a header; which is what I want, yet in IE it is grey.

    Problem 3: My links such as the Continue Reading More are displayed correctly on IE with a different blue color while on FF they are white like normal text.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!!

  • Internet Explorer also makes the width of the post content smaller.. Anybody?

    Different companies implement the standards in different ways.

    Some browser makers like to add things that are non-standard.

    Thats why it will look different.

    And any person viewing your site can change the font their browser views a page in.

    My suggestion is to clean up those 60 or so XHTML errors first. Then, get things working in Firefox, since it’s a standards-based browser. After that, clean up whatever mistakes IE throws at you.

    I’m having the same trouble; my google bar and header runs off the page on IE while on FF its perfectly fine. Unfortunately, FF is not an option and I don’t have much html knowledge. Is there a way to fix this in IE?
