Browser Inconsistency?


See attached images; view of same site in Firefox & Chrome.

Both zoomed to normal (100%).

Why the difference?

Both those images show a blocked image.

What do you mean, a "Blocked Image"?
Must have been an EE thing.

Whats the site URL (I should know it but not looking thru your old questions)

The site is Try in FireFox & Chrome.

You mean I can't upload images to EE any more? That would reduce it's effectiveness significantly.

To Gary,

Just for fun I tried it in IE. Looks JUST LIKE Chrome.

Normally FireFox & Chrome look the exact same, IE often hiccups.

FYI, it WON'T work on an iPad or Safari device, uses Flash. That's why I'm doing this whole project, I'm ALMOST there.

On this computer, looks the same in Firefox, Chrome and IE8.  Press Ctrl+0 in Firefox to reset your Zoom settings (it does not have a 100% setting).  The current version of Firefox is 32.0.3.
i see a slight difference in the fonts, but that is down to how the different browsers render fonts and there is nothing you can really do about it. FF shows a slighly larger font, you should not design a websit based on font size
But the FF screenshot does look zoomed by 10% as it is not what I am seeing.

But using Flash in this day and age is a sin...

The image thing must have been a distribution issue.

To all,

I am talking about the orange background that appears in FireFox; see attached.

I did Ctrl+0.

My project is to replace the Flash. I am using CSS & Jquery to do so (some of the details as provided by Gary & Dave Baldwin on other EE questions.I am 95% of the way there.

My non-flash version DOES NOT show the orange either, I am concerned that the customer will say "it's not the same" as it used to be
The only way to replicate that is to zoom the browser. Double check you have reset the zoom

To Gary,

My FF says 100%. It is Version 32.0.3
In the top menu click Zoom and Reset
If not working try in Safe Mode, maybe you have a plugin zooming it.
