    I have just finished my own portfolio site. Im having a few problems that I cant figure out the answer to myself. I was hoping some of you could help me.

    Problem 1
    outline in IE and Firefox on some images even when I have outline: none; on both the html and body elements in the css. Example can be see here Click any of the headings in Firefox or IE and an outline appears. Any ideas ?

    Problem 2
    return false; not working in Firefox. Go to click the contact link. A lightbox should pop up with the formstack form however it is opening the form in a new window. Any ideas ?

    Problem 3
    Dynamic Tabs (The code is from the Sprite Accordion here on the CSS Tricks download page) – They wont work properly in IE. Example can be seen here

    Thanks for your help.


    All of your links are broken


    not now…


    I get this when I try to few it in Firefox:

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

    In Chrome my entire browser chugs and it’s difficult even to scroll the site.

    I don’t see any of the outlines you mentioned in IE8.

    I’m not sure where the tabs are that you mention.

    It might not be the best to link to a validation service when your site doesn’t validate!


    @TheDoc Im not getting the same problems you’re getting in chrome and firefox. The tabs are on the services page. The whole site will be compliant when I have solved the above problems. The only part I cant get to validate compliant is the facebook like link.


    @TheDoc My bad – the tabs are on the portfolio page.


    The tabs in the portfolio section are working fine for me in IE8.

    Still can’t get the page to load in FF 3.6 or 4.0Beta.


    Im using FF 3.6 and its working fine both offline and online. I will have to test it on a different computer. Thanks for your help


    @TheDoc I tried the site on Firefox 3.6 on a different computer and experienced the same problem. A help article said to just clear your cache. I did it and it now works fine. It must a be a bug in firefox.


    But certainly if you sent a user to your site you couldn’t expect them to clear their cache!


    You’re very right. But I have no idea why it happens. Theres nothing overly complicated about the site that should be causing this problem.


    Having the same problem viewing the site using FF3.6 Mac. Googled it and found the following:

    “In case anyone gets this problem in future, the solution was strange.

    It turns out that Windows text files are saved with Carriage Return Line Feeds, which are different to standard Line Feeds. (Macs use CR, Window CRLF and Unix LF) I had my line endings as CRLFs which is what was causing the problem.

    Using Notepad2 I changed the line endings to LF and it seems to be ok now.

    Another thing that seemed to cause the same problem was echo statements, although I couldn’t pinpoint why they were causing it.

    If not this, then check your GZIP settings for your site”


    Don’t know if that might be helpful — good luck!
