Firefox bug

2009-05-05 21:21:21.802015+00 by Dan Lyke 11 comments

Whoah. Freaky. I'm unable to click on the sidebar links on Flutterby.net in Firefox 3.0.10. Opera & IE both work. Any suggestions on how to tweak the CSS or pages to let me do so?

Got it: The <div> that contained the content and the heading, which is invisible, was extending over the sidebar. Still not a very pretty design, but at least it works.

(Taking steps towards being able to update from the iPhone)

It works for me using Ff 3.0.10 on Kubuntu but I've noticed that sometimes on other sites using the back button made the links in some areas unclickable.

Vista 64 Home Premium, FF 3.0.10 not working. I was initially posting that I could, but I was clicking on the wrong thing. (someone needs to learn to read the initial post better)

I had the same reading problem as JT. It doesn't work for me in FF3.0.10 or Konqueror.

Failed on Firefox 2x, but if I go "View→Page Style→No Style" then I can click on the links. So it is a problem with the CSS. Looking it over, I see a spurious "n" in the CSS for div.imageleft, but I doubt that's the full cause.

Hmm ... I see you doing "border: solid 1px #000", but that's not the order I do it in---"border: 1px solid #000". Perhaps that's the problem?

I think the problem is that the left margin of the "contentcolumn" div overlays the "sidebar" div. In the CSS, changing "contentcolumn" left:0 to left:200px fixes it - then reduce your content left margins by 200px to restore the layout.

Should have used tables. ;)

OOOPS. I retract comment #2. flutterby.net is what you said. As JT said, somebody ...
