W00t!

I've recently been blessed with an Ubuntu update that moved me up from FF 3.0 to FF3.5.6.

I look at the websites I've built for people, and look at my own web site... and, good lord. They look like a giant bird laid a giant turd upon my sites. I guess I've been happily oblivious in my FF3.0 world all this time.

Mozilla has decided to make my clients' sites look terrible, so that photographs on Flickr look, I dunno, more photo-ey I guess. Good going Mozilla. *applaud*

So when are they going to give me a nice letter (in layman's Dutch pls) I can give to my clients explaining why their sites look crappy and how to turn this obscure "feature" off that they can then pass down to every visitor of theirs?

Luckily my country is somewhat backwards and has high IE usage.

Hmmm...seems you're not alone

Hmmm...seems you're not alone Poes by the angst expressed in the replies. At least it explains why I have the image/CSS difference in Safari over FF3.0.11 - thanks, I think. (Can't update about to start a thread on it)

Mods and gurus – THANK YOU!
For your time, knowledge and experience so willingly and generously given.
Please come back tomorrow and sort us all out again Smile

Windows

Even worse: I never saw this in FF3.5 in Winblowz (though that one isn't yet 3.5.6...). So they are being sneaky, and specifically targetting the non-dominant OS-users. Aha, they figure we who use a minority browser on a minority OS will stay silent! Where's our MLK? Rrrrrrevolución, comrades! TO THE STREETS!!!

There's a shadowy cabal at Mozilla... do they wear hats like El Zorro? or Carmen Sandiego...
