Why does my AJAX modal popup only work properly in IE. I want to keep the effect of dimming the background with an opacity factor but chrome & firefox always just grey out the entire background. Is there something I am not doing?
.modalBackground {



	opacity = 0.7;


Open in new window

    btw I am using masterpages if that makes any difference.

    resolved :)
    if anyone is having the same problem i wish i could tell you exactly how i fixed it. The only thing that seems to stand out is that it all came good after I put a code breakpoint on the sub that fires the modal popup, stepped through it then when I returned to the browser the background was opaque.

    really really weird.
