FireFox 3.6 losing text.

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Captain Paralytic, Feb 7, 2010.

  1. The page http://uk.osgeurope.com/ff36.html has 2 phone numbers, one
    above the other.

    When I look at it in FF 3.6, only the second one shows.

    However, if I prefix the first number with a alpha character (see
    http://uk.osgeurope.com/ff36a.html), then the first number shows, but
    the second one disappears???

    This has really got me stumped.

    Anyone got any idea as to what I am doing wrong?

    TIA

    I am not seeing this trouble. Anyway, how about a proper doctype
    etc...


    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

    Do you have Skype installed? Sometimes the Skype Firefox add-on does
    strange and unexpected things to phone numbers.

    If not, have you tried starting Firefox in safe mode to see if it is one
    of your other Add-ons that is causing the problem?

    No problem here, must be something specific to your machine...

    I see both numbers in both pages with ff 3.6 fine. You're not on a
    win95 box, are you?

    Nothing odd about that.

    That article is incorrect.

    In HTML, the <br> tag stands alone; it has no closing tag. In XHTML, all tags
    must be closed, and the proper form is <br />.

    The authors make exactly the same mistake WRT <hr>, <area>, <input>, and
    <img>.

    <br /> both opens and closes the tag.

    >tags in the same tag??


    It's the XHTML way.

    Thanks very much for that Nik, it was indeed the Skype addon. I had
    disabled it now. Never really wanted it in the first place!
