In the following code

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
<html>
<head>
<style>
tr
{
    background-color:red;
    font-size:10pt;
}
</style>
<script language="javascript">
function onLoad()
{
    var div=document.getElementById("divCont");
   
    /*****************************/
    var NumOfRows = 1;
    /*****************************/
   
    var s = new Array();
    s.push("<table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0>");
    for(var i=0; i<NumOfRows; i++)
    {
      s.push("<tr id='row_" + i + "'>");
      s.push("  <td>Row " + i);
      s.push("  </td>");
      s.push("<tr>");
    }
    s.push("</table>");
    div.innerHTML = s.join("\n");
   
    var row = document.getElementById("row_0");
    NumOfRows = (div.offsetHeight / row.offsetHeight);
   
    var s = new Array();
    s.push("<table border=1>");
    for(var i=0; i<NumOfRows; i++)
    {
      s.push("<tr id='row_" + i + "'>");
      s.push("  <td>Row " + i);
      s.push("  </td>");
      s.push("<tr>");
    }
    s.push("</table>");
    div.innerHTML = s.join("\n");
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="onLoad();">
<div id="divCont" style="position:absolute;left:10px;top:10px;width:400px;height:200px;border:solid 1px blue;">
</div>
</body>
</html>

I've create a table with the number of rows depending on the height of the "divCont".
In IE and Opera it works perfectly and the table keeps inside the div exactly, but in FireFox the rows overflow the div.

What can be happening and how can I fix it for FireFox?

Thanks

First of all, when you grab the height of the row, I would recommend getting the entire height of the table, especially since you add borders to the table. Thus, set an ID on the table and use getElementById() on that instead of row_0.

To fix for Firefox, make sure to set cellpadding and cellspacing in your second table to zero as well.
