www.silverrose.net\help\firefoxhelpcss.htm

Please view this in Firefox.

The middle and right div tag do not extend to the bottom of the screen like they do in IE.

I tried Tony Asletts,

.celarfix:after {
content: ".";
display: block;
height: 0;
clear: both;
visibility: hidden;
}

that works on floats, but to no avail.

Please help I am furiously ripping out my hair.

Thanks

DiMM

That's because Firefox is

That's because Firefox is behaving correctly. IE has it wrong. Containers are not supposed to contain their floated children.

Go to the "How To" forum and read the sixth message on the list.

In any case where IE displays something one way, and Firefox another, then 99% of the time it is IE that is lying to you no matter that it looks "right" to you.

there is nothing wrong with

there is nothing wrong with firefox. where did you place the clearfix class?
It should go on the #pagewrapper div. You could also use overflow: hidden on the same id to accomplish the float enclosure.

You have way overdone this page. why did you class every dd then class every anchor inside each dd, then class not one but two spans inside that classed anchor within the classed dd within an id'd dl? The only thing you needed to target everything there is the one id on the dl!

You are telling me

You are telling me Wolfcry.

The page was created by an online company that handles our storefront.

I am not allowed access to edit the html, only to upload a css file.

I think they added all the superfluous tags to allow more customizable fields, but its a real pain.

Thanx for tips I will try it.
