Hi
I am making a site new.adpp-mozambique.org and in order to fix the red background after the superfish menu, i have added a "red" picture and it looks ok in Internet Explorer but not in firefox

Anyone has an idea how I can get this sorted so it sees the background picture in Firefox as well.
If possible I am looking for a CSS way to resolve it as i am not very good in creating new containers/divs etc in the Index.php file

The site is a Joomla site

Regards
Morten

In the superfish.css on line 3 you have the following style:

.sf-menu, .sf-menu * {

}

Use that... add your background color/image there.

Hi
The code:
.sf-menu, .sf-menu * {         }

Only change the background of the menu buttons. Not the white area to the right where you have the translation buttons, so that does not work. That white space is not conrtrolled by Superfish, unless I can add a code to superfish to fill 100% of the page

Regarding the picture if it has a space.
To be honest it might not be a picture. I tried that first, but think that I later found a way to set the background to red and it works in IE. I have been looking through for the last 2 hours, but cant find the place in the CSS file, however it only works in IE, not Firefox.

I am still looking into it and will post if i find out more

Any other idears?

Thanks so far
Morten

The sfmenu is actually filling in the whole width, but since the list items (<li>) inside of it are floated to the left, the sfmenu is not "aware" of how tall it is... so to speak.

Anyhow.  Ignore my last comment, and do this instead:

superfish.css - Line 11

.sf-menu {
  background-color: #C33;
  min-height: 2.5em;
  border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
  line-height: 1;
}
