Leaving a reasonable time for addons, extensions and themes to catch up, we’ve now installed Firefox 3.0.
Immediately, an anomaly appeared on the front page of the Sibagraphics site – a bottom scroll bar. This turned out to be from the top flash animations, one of which was floated right and the other left from id css instructions within the objects themselves.
This was simply solved by removing the ids and putting them in divs around the objects!
The site validates and is similar in all browsers, even the annoying and insecure IE6 which 24% of viewers worldwide still apparently use. Many of these would be corporate users who have unique company software reliant on that dodgy old M$ version.
Rather than use the M$ Virtual PC software in order to run two versions of IE, we found the very handy free Tredisoft solution, which will install standalone versions of IE from IE3 – IE6 if desired. Works a treat and naturally is not bulky and cumbersome!
