Firefox displays forum wrong

edited September 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Forefox displays my forum not right. This screenshot is from Internet Explorer: And this one is from Firefox: Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you very much!

    There's very little we can do without a link to the active forum - just a screenshot is next to useless when diagnosting CSS/XHTML issues like this.

    Hmmm... Okay, I understand, but the forum is closed for non-members because my girlfriend uses it for conversations with her friends, you know, girl stuff... It's kinda private... I thought, since it is a often used theme, more people would experience it and there may be a solution. I didn't change anything in the theme's code.

    This screenshot which is from FireFox is as close to the original theme than this one which is from Internet Explorer!

    Something has changed in the theme files...

    Screenshot for the theme in FF and IE7:

    So try going back to the standard Vanilla theme, delete the Grace theme, download a fresh copy, upload again and then try enabling it once more.

    I followed your advice, Stash, but it didn't work. Well, I guess I have to instruct my girlfriend to use IE instead of Firefox... :-(

    Got any extensions installed?

    No, no extensions. When I try to install an extension I get an error message... Well, I gave up, I learned my girlfriend how to use IETab in Firefox! ;-) Thanks for your help!

    Sounds like you've got more than problems with this theme. It sounds like something's not quite right with your Vanilla installation (or directory permissions). This could well be causing the problem you're describing here.

    here's how we can help you:
    create a new category called "testing" or something.
    create a new role called "Tester".
    make it so that Tester (and no other roles) has access to the testing category, and Tester has access to only that category.
    now let someone here apply, and make them a Tester.
    this way we can see the bug, but we can't see the rest of the forum, and no other members will realize we're there.
