Problem with header in Firefox - SOLVED

  • Dec. 16th, 2007 at 12:22 AM
I've switched to Holiday Ornaments Red, one of the Expressive Winter layouts, for Christmas, but there appears to be a problem the the way the header displays in Firefox (and also Flock, which uses the same rendering engine). There's an extra red line at the bottom of the header image, as if the header, which doesn't have a straight edge, has a red box round it. It doesn't show up in Opera or IE, though.

So I was wondering if there was anything I could do to get rid of it, as it's rather irritating. I have a paid account and am quite happy adding developer area customisations, if that's what's needed.

Thank you very much.

See if this gets rid of it:
#header {background-image: none;}

Sadly, that didn't help, unless I'm putting it in the wrong place. I tried both the custom CSS box and straight into my layer but either way the line still stuck around.

I've done some more poking around, and it seems as if the image in in #header-inner, I can turn it off by changing your code. Then the background is the dark red colour that I'm getting the line of - I assume it's just showing underneath the image.

Is there a way to change that colour to be white, which should make the line invisible? It doesn't seem to need to be coloured in order to make the image look right - it's complete in its own right.

Thank you very much for trying to help me out with this, it's such a stupid little thing, but it bugs me.

It works. :-)

I found the original css style sheet and copied out and altered the background colour to #fff, which got rid of the annoying line.

Sorry to bombard you with messages, and thank you for starting me down the right path - I've learnt a lot.

No problem. #header has both a background color and a tiled image, which are actually different colors, but I wasn't sure which one was showing up. I also have no idea why it's only there with FF, not IE.

I see what you mean about the tiled image - and yet both it and the background colour appear to be completely invisible when you actually look at the layout. (Apart from the stray line - which actually appears on all of the Holiday Ornaments layouts, in whichever colour the header background is.)

I have seen it mentioned that IE and Firefox do things slightly differently when it comes to showing borders and padding, so I suppose it's something to do with that. Given that the background colour doesn't show up at all, do you think it would be worth reporting the problem to LiveJournal as a bug in the layout? I'm probably not the only FF user bothered by it, and it should be fairly simple to fix in the screen.css.

Thanks; it's been submitted as a bug, although I can't say how long it'll take to fix, or what form the fix will take.
