Firefox and IE Issue

4 New Member
Hi All,

Please check the code below as am having trouble viewing the same design in Firefox and IE7. It works fine in IE6 but gets all quirky in IE7 and FF.

The footer stays at the bottom of the viewport but then the text scrolls behind it in IE7 and FF. I need it to be at the bottom of the content at all times. Please help. Currently the styles are in the same htm file but will later be and external CSS. The design is center aligned on the browser and hence some divs have relative positioning. Here is the code:

From how I understand your question you are wanting to have the footer at the end of the content at all times, not at the bottom of the window.

If that is the case then the issue is the fixed position of the footer div. IE7 and Firefox have the correct implementation of position fixed which is that the element is positioned in a fixed position relative to the viewport, not the document and that the element remains fixed in that position and does not move when the document is scrolled.

Also you have the style tag is self closing so the code is not valid, the opening style code should be:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  <style type="text/css">
