Background colors in Firefox
Posted on 2006-11-03
Is there an explanation for why background colors in Firefox 2.0 using CSS don't seem to work? For example, choose a standard CSS layout template in Dreamweaver (I'm using the 3col_leftNav.css) and then set the background color black so the body style looks like:
In IE7, the page has a black background and works as expected. In Firefox it stays white.
Taking a look at the Experts-Exchange style sheet, I tried using a repeating graphic (a 500x500 black gif) so the background property is changed to:
background: #000 url(background.gif) repeat-y left;
Once again, IE7 has a black background and Firefox has a white one.
Any thoughts on how to switch background colors from white in Firefox?
