Page Looks Screwy In Firefox

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know this is an issue with IE and not Firefox but I actually have it the way I want it in IE and wanted to know if there's some extra code I can put in my css file to straighten things out for Firefox users. If I have to start over, that's fine, though if I could use some of the code I currently have, that would be great.

 

Here's the page:

Another question, kind of unrelated: Anyone know how to control the indent on a list? Right now I have just the <li> without the proper <ul>. I want to, but it just indents it too much (though I know that's why the links won't show in Firefox).

 

I have so many other questions, but I'll leave it there for now, lol.

 

Here's the page code (yes, it's messy):

BTW, I have fixed a couple things in the css. Doesn't change the look, but thought I should mention it...

 

When using Firefox's validation tool, I got 51 errors. 19 of them were within the YouTube link and most others were because I didn't have the <ul> tags. The css page did validate (after fixing the 2 issues), however.

Yeah, I know. BUt even with those the page still looks wrong. Anyway, thanks for the replies but I decided to start over with a fresh template. This time I'm doing it piece by piece and checking with IE and Firefox. So far I've completed the left side and both browsers are displaying it properly.

sorry yea I realised I had got ahead a bit... what exactly is the difference between IE and FF... the only main difference I notice (IE 7 and FF 2) is that under the headings in FF the blue line extends for further, there is more spacing between headings and their subsequent text and there is very slightly less padding between list item points and the text

That's basically it. The whole thing just doesn't look very good in Firefox. Also, check out the links. Only the top 3 are clickable (is that a word?), the rest don't do anything (almost as if they're part of the background).

 

But I want to do this the right way and not plug in a quick fix to make everything look all nice. And I'm not in a rush as my current design displays fine on both browsers.

I've started over and so far, it's fine. I'm having other problems but since it isn't FF or IE related, I'm going to start a new thread.

 

A mod can delete this thread if they'd like...
