Firefox a:link styling issue

I'm having trouble getting Firefox to style my links appropriately. It only picks up the style that is last in the document. This is so frustrating and I can't think of any way this css is wrong. I've validated it, rewritten it, blah blah blah, but no dice. This is such a simple thing too.

So, in Firefox, all of my links are white, but in other browsers, the styling is just fine, showing up in white brown and black.

ul {
margin-left : 30px;

h1 {

".sidenav2 a:link, a:visited, a:hover, a:active" means "a:link" elements that are a descendant of an element with the class "sidenav2" and all <a> elements that are visited, hovered or active (being clicked on) regardless of where they are in the document. What you really mean is this: ".sidenav2 a:link, .sidenav2 a:visited, .sidenav2 a:hover, .sidenav2 a:active".

I expect why it appears to work in other browsers is that the links are not visited in them like they are in Firefox.
