Word Up – Firefox blows

I’m sorry to all of you FireFox fans. I know you think it is awesome either because it isn’t Microsoft or because it is safer or something but things don’t look right in FireFox. They just don’t. It’s behind the standards or something.

That nicely formatted list of bad foods I ate with caloric content in a nice, clean column runs into the margins in FireFox. It looks perfect in IE. All I did was use the ‘pre’ tag and make the font big enough to read.

I hate FireFox.

I also hate that I am getting up at 5AM on a Sunday morning to go for a bike ride. It had better be very, very scenic is all I can say.

On the plus side I was a really good eater today. Fruit, whole wheat bread, fish, corn, green tea. Yeah me. Oh- and a glass of wine. So double yeah.

    are you using Firefox on a mac or pc? Firfox really only works well on a mac. It’s my firm belief and I’m sticking to it.

    Mixing CSS and PREThe easiest way to handle the browser display problem is to add a style definition to your PRE tag. This works in all browsers.Here’s the same style definition we used in the previous section, but applied to the PRE tag instead of to a class:pre{font-weight:bold;color:navy;font-family:arial;}The only downside is that you lose the ability to control the width – but Netscape is the only browser that supports that anyway!

    i was just gonna say IE users of the world UNITE and bow down to the greatness that is Gates.then, i read jeanne’s comment.and, given that it is 6:36am and i wasn’t prepared for html in the comment section, my head quickly spun around 17 times, and i believe landed in another room.just 20 years ago, i got paid handsomely to write code like this, now we are all supposed to be fluent in html for fun?AUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGHHHHHHHHH!i give up.i hate everybody.but, i’m going running.because that’s what my plan says.(didn’t those words make a nice shape as they got longer)maybe i should cut back on the morning coffee.maybe, i should wait until after 7 to blog……

    Yeah, ditto what Bolder says – it’s Sunday and I don’t do html on Sundays. BUT, I’ll know who to go to (thanks Jeanne) if someone with Firefox complains at my site.

    I see what you mean! My beef with Firefox is that I lose all my bookmarks when firefox decides to update the version. I’m sure there’s a way to keep them, but the fact that it does this by default is annoying.

    I have never lost any bookmarks even on automatic updates…that’s weird.As for which is better, I tend to not have many problems with FireFox but I have it fairly well customized. I like the interface better than IE, and it actually has better standards compliance than IE, your problems just come from a lot of sites being designed in a non-standard way. Personally, it doesn’t bother me which browser you use or prefer. I like FireFox better and I feel safer using it since there are fewer security vulnerabilities being targetted by those up to no good, so I stick to it except when I am testing my own websites or updating windows.
