Bullets not displaying correctly in Firefox

Aug 7, 2012 9:58 AM

Tags: #firefox #bullets

Hi,  my bulleted lists don't seem to display properly in  Firefox. Sometimes the text is displayed underneath the bullets and sometimes the spacing between bullet and text is too large.

 

This issue doesn't occur in IE.

 

I'm using RH7.

 

I see others have had this issue but I haven't found an answer yet. Is there anything I can do or is this a Firefox issue?

    That is likely because the font for the numbering is not defined in your OL tag.

    Hi,

     

    The easiest way depends on whether you have more drop downs with or without an underline.

     

    With underline: Add the underline as the styling for the drop down hotspot. Select the drop down hotspot where you do not want the underline and click the apply underline button to remove the underline for that hotspot only.

     

    Without underline: In the css, set the drop down hotspot to not use an underline. Select the drop down hotspot where you want an underline and click the apply underline button to add the underline.

     

    Greet,

    Sorry for the late reaction, this post slipped my mind...

     

    You say there is no obvious pattern, but since it is software, there must be a pattern somewhere. Can you post the HTML code of some links that work and links that don't work in FireFox? (Don't reply via email as the forum doesn't get those HTML tags in mail.)

     

    When you have multiple dropdowns on a page, do all dropdowns exibit the same behaviour or do they react differently?

     

    Greet,

    The span is overriding your styling. The solution is to remove those span tags.

     

    As a temporary workaround, add the !important declaration to the underline in your css:

     

    a.dropspot {

      text-decoration: underline !important;

    }

     

    Greet,
