Firefox Gradient Repeating issue

Posted on 2013-01-06
Last Modified: 2013-01-15
I am using the following CSS3 for my <body> tag:

    width: 100%;
    margin: "0";
    padding: "0";
    /* default background colour, for all layout engines that don't implement gradients */
    background: #ffffff;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    color: #000000; /* text colour (black) */
    filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient (startColorstr='#005595', endColorstr='#dddedf', gradientType='0'); /* IE based browsers */
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #006595, #dddedf); /* Mozilla (Firefox) based browsers */
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#006595), to(#dddedf)); /* webkit based browsers */

    FONT-WEIGHT: normal;
    FONT-SIZE: 9pt;
    FONT-STYLE: normal;
    FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif

IE works fine, but the background repeats when I scroll in Firefox. I can't figure out how to make it not do that. Please help.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply, but that's the code I'm using. In IE, the background stays static, as expected, but in Firefox, when I scroll, the background scrolls also. I apologize for not posting an image of the issue with the original post. Please see the attached image for a clearer picture of what is happening.

Firefox version, latest and greatest: v17.0.1.

As for the code, if I am looking at the wrong line, I apologize, but:
(their code)
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,  #ccc,  #000);

(my code)
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #006595, #dddedf);

I appreciate your help...
