Why does is this highlighting in Firefox


A

Astroboy

Hi there.

I'm creating a site which I modified a wordpress Template for the
client. However, for some reason all the areas with potential links
highlight in Red. And it doesn't in Explorer. The it appears in
Explorer is how it is properly supposed to be.

The website is at :

http://www.chaudharylaw.com/new-site/


Any ideas as to why it could be looking all wonky in firefox?

The CSS is below :

Gazing into my crystal ball I observed Astroboy <[email protected]>
writing in 31g2000vbf.googlegroups.com:
I'm creating a site which I modified a wordpress Template for the

Are you using the SEO extension for Firefox? If you turn it off, your
links will not be red anymore.

Astroboy

Yes that was it!

LOL...Boy do I feel stupid, I don't really use firefox that much, only
for testing purposes...

Thanks for your help :)

... and wish more deziner's wouldn't perpetuate this practice... Ah yes,
lawyers so it must be fine-print!

First we are not allows to specify a font size, and now we shouldn't
even try to make different sized text at all? Maybe we should just
have one font and one size for text and only use black and white for
colors. And who the hell needs images, audio, or video. And Flash...
well we need not even talk about the evils of that...

At the risk of being heckled for not understanding your humorous sarcasm, I
have to speak up in agreement with Jonathan. The 75% declaration was in the
ruleset for *body*, so the whole thing is starting off 1/4 too small.

But since you snipped the body selector, I have to guess you're
intentionally pretending to misunderstand or to refute Jonathan's argument
with tongue in cheek. Er, right?

"Jonathan N. Little said:

I suppose the idea of body: font-size: 75%; *could* be elevated to the
idea of a difference in philosophy. Usually there must be some sort of
intelligent or vaguely intellectual idea behind the difference. So I am
not sure you are right Jonathan. But...

What could be the idea?

"We make websites that use the most advanced design techniques. We start
with that nothing should be readable from the word go, nothing as a
matter of principle! While this might seem counter-intuitive, it
actually sets a very compelling tension as the curtain goes up. The
audience is very nervous, agitated, they have come to read and not work
too hard, what is in store for them?

"The curtain goes up and there is an h1 {font-size: 150%} heading, all
bold like and actually readable. A huge sigh of relief from the punters
will be heard. They have been given a readable morsel, they are now
*enormously grateful* and a few more crumbs of readability here and
there and we have them in our grips! They will accept almost anything
now.

"They will buy anything you offer them now in this mesmerized state..."

Hehe. Your light humor always gives me a chuckle in a dark way. But to

soapboxing for Flash or something.

The beings from the planet I come from are sexless. Sexy maybe, but

I don't know, here boobs are tits, we keep it simple.
Hmm. Looks good to me here. Not sure what you're referring to without
diving into the markup.


Just make your browser narrower."at so wide as" refers to a reasonable
width like 800px.

By the way, as a Martian of the opposite sex, I meant to ask you
something. I was having a discussion with a female (human) friend of
mine the other day about language and idiom, particularly in the USA
regionally.

The topic was boobs. I called someone a boob and then said: "Well,
that is much too kind a word to use to describe him. I mean, boob is a
good thing!"

To which she replied (I'm from Pennsylvania she's from Texas
originally): "Well, I always heard it as "boobie."

So I got to thinking, is "boob" or "boobie" used in other countries? I
mean, slang and idiom can be so different from culture to culture. Just
curious.
A boob in UK can mean mistake. "I've made a bit of a boob!". Boob is
also a shortened Boobie, or breast. And Boobie is obviously a bird. To
describe someone as a boob, although I've heard it, is quite rare over
here.

It is like that here really. I was not attending closely and wished to
pass over the subject. I was mildly entertained by the idea of Ed
Mullen, without the useful male harness, having trouble as he leapt at
speed over the sharpish edges of an athletic hurdle stand.

bras tax? Obama's imposed a new tax on bras? Ok, now there's a good
idea! Make them too expensive and women won't wear them! I like it!

It's just an expression meaning "to get down to the bare facts". I'm a
crotch-man, myself, but, disappointingly, there ain't no expression
like "to get down to panty tax". Of course, one could always try to
popularize a new idiom but I'm afraid the idiots of the world just
wouldn't get it (-like they're getting anything now...) Anyway, I was
simply meaning to put Travis' tantrum to rights with a response of calm
beneficence.
