a:visited not working in Mozilla or Firefox

P: n/a
DM
I searched on this topic. Found others who mentioned it, but no
solution. I can't seem to get visited links to appear in a different
color in Mozilla or Firefox on the PC. It works fine in IE. My CSS is
copied below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

DM
td#footer a:link{
border-bottom: solid 1px #FFFFFF !important;

text-decoration: none !important;

The order must be
link
visited
hover
active

I tried changing it (see code below), but that doesn't work either. The code
below does not work in Mozilla or Firefox at my organization. It works fine in IE.

I've also noticed that on www.yahoo.com, www.cnn.com, www.taxes.ca.gov visited
links change color in IE 6, but not in Mozilla 1.7.3 or Firefox 1.0.2 for the PC.

I would be grateful to anyone who can shed some light on this.

td#footer a:link{
border-bottom: solid 1px #FFFFFF;
color: #FFFFFF;
text-decoration: none;
}
td#footer a:visited{
border-bottom: solid 1px #FFCC66;
color: #FFCC66;
text-decoration: none;
}
td#footer a:link:hover,
td#footer a:visited:hover{
border-bottom: none;
color: #00FF33;
text-decoration: none;
}
td#footer a:link:active,
td#footer a:visited:active{
border-bottom: solid 1px #FFFFFF;
color: #FFFFFF;
text-decoration: none;
}

The most important part of the order is to place hover below visited.
As you originally had it, it still wouldn't cause the problem you
describe.

Can you post a URL to the whole page ? It's not always possible to
debug fragments in isolation.

Read the link I posted, how it must be written,
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/selector.html#x35

And validate your css.

My CSS and HTML validate.

I also tried this code:

a:link{
color: #336699;
text-decoration: underline;
}
a:visited{
color: #993366;
text-decoration: underline;
}
a:hover{
color: #66CCFF;
text-decoration: none;
}
a:active{
color: #FF6600;
text-decoration: none;
}

It produces the same result. Other people using Mozilla and Firefox on other
computers apparantly are finding that the visited links DO change color. So this
is specific to certain machines.

Browsers on my machine are set to use the colors specified by the webpage. Is
there some other config setting that could affect this?

Tools > Options > Privacy > History
Remember visited pages for the last [ ] days

If that's set to zero than the browser keeps no record of which pages
have been visited and hence never used the :visited styles.

That is the solution.

Thank you.
