Hi all

Just a quick reminder that the WSG on-topic sphere doesn't include
software support , like broken extensions. In this case you will
probably get the best responses at the mozilla support sites.

Discussion of browsers and their standards support (or not) is, of course, on topic.

Cheers

  The Mac version of HTMLTidy doesn't work under 1.5, which actually prevents
 me from upgrading on my work machine, as I use this all the time as a handy
 shortcut for picking up validation errors (and puts this thread vaguely
 on-topic too). The PC version works, so I'll be upgrading my PC for sure.


Version which I got from
http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/download.html worked
on 1.5RC just fine.

I upgraded and so far I'm happy with it. :)

I did notice one thing right off the bat. I have one of those snow 
falling java scripts on my personal blog (I don't normaly use those 
types of java scripts on my sites.. and never on a business site), and 
the snow falls more smoothly in FF 1.5. It's not something anyone else 
would really notice, but since I go to my personal blog several times a 
day I noticed right away that the snow looks much better.

RE: [WSG] firefox 1.5 is official

I understand that much.

What I don't understand is why was this implemented as a new element. Shouldn't 
it be an Object?

From looking at the spec, it seems to pretty much replicates the capabilities 
of SVG, but using JavaScript instead of markup. Why not just use SVG, and use 
JavaScript + DOM if you want to add things dynamically?

 Does the Web Developer Extension run in it with your old profile without

 separate profiles for each.

 If you already have RC3 installed then you don't need to install this

I knew they were 8 days ago when it was announced among the Mozilla
developers that the release of 1.5 was expected to be no more than
renaming 1.5rc3. I've been running the 1.5 branch releases since they
were initially released as 1.5b1.

 The web developer toolbar has and update that works with 1.5

I did not install web dev in rc3, only in 1.0.7. I use two Firefox
profiles, one for the latest release, in which I have the latest web dev
installed, and one for some newer non-release version in which I never
install any extensions of any kind, that I have been using with the
pre-release 1.5's.

So, the question remains, does a release version profile with web dev
installed work without doing anything special when upgrading the release
version from 1.0.x to 1.5?

Bah, problems already. When you use dead centering in CSS (i.e.,

second center, even though it is perfectly valid CSS.


The coming soon page on my site (byzach.com) is an example.

Firefox 1.5 is correct according to css2.0. Firefox 1.07 was buggy in 
this.

Zach,

You might try making that page valid HTML, so that Firefox obeys CSS
standards instead of lapsing into quirks mode.

RE: [WSG] firefox 1.5 is official

2005-11-29 Thread Kevin Yank
The rendering you're seeing is because the body of the page has zero height
(a quirks mode behaviour, I suspect). Firefox isn't ignoring the second
center at all.

Simply typing this into the address bar fixes your layout:

javascript:alert(document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].style.height='100%
');

Set the height property of the body to 100% in your CSS to get the desired
rendering. Or as I mentioned previously, make your page valid HTML instead
of just a couple of disembodied tags.

2005-11-29 Thread adam reitsma
i don't think it actually ignores the second center... it just reads your body's height as 0px. Notice that if you have 'center top' it shows all of your background image, but with 'center center', it only shows half, as the background image has been vertically centered at 0px.
as a quick test - specifying the body height to 100% centers your image in FF 1.5 on PC.--adam--On 12/1/05, Zach
