    Iframe problem in Firefox!

    clear_design
      Is there anything I can do to resolve my iframe not showing properly in Firefox? It works perfect in IE but then when i preview it in Firefox it's slightly out. I think it's maybe due to the firefox scroll bar being slightly wider.

      Also why is it puttng that horrible black line around it in Firefox?!

      Cheers in advance

            Nobody has the patience to wait for you page to load. Consider reducing the page weight by at least 5X. Also fix the validation errors:

              The page loads straight away what are you talking about? And what exactly do you mean by the page weight?

              And what validation errors do you mean?

                  <iframe src="welcome.html" marginheight="auto" name="frame1" frameborder="x"
                  height="480" width="465"></iframe>

                  Your frameborder is set as "x". Set your it to 0. That will get rid of
                  the black border which is what is pushing the iframe.

                    It loads right away for you because your browser has cached it. Those who
                    will be browsing to it to try and help you out won't have it cached and will
                    be waiting for everything to load for the first time.

                    I didn't get nearly the same result as bregent posted, but when I checked
                    out your page's speed report, it was still heavier than it should be. On
                    average, a user won't wait more than eight seconds for a page to load and
                    some won't even wait that long.

                    Have a look at your speed report:

                    As for the validation errors, you can see them all here:

                      Thanks loads for your help Heather! That sorted out my black border problem! The only thing now is that when i view it in Firefox it's shifted over to the left instead of being centred. Any clues as to why it's doing this? In IE it's perfectly centred.

                      Cheers again!

                      I noticed in the report you did for me it says 0.94 seconds for a T1 connection which is under 2mb. Most people these days have at least that if not more so i'm not sure it's that big a deal really. I do clear my cache everytime i test my site as well so that isn't a problem.

                      As for the validation errors, are these really that big a deal? Every single website i've tested comes back with at least 20 errors! Even Adobe.com is riddled with errors?!

                      Thanks a lot for all your help

                        Ive noticed why the whole thing has shifted over in Firefox. My margin doesn't seem to be having any effect whatsoever?

                        Works fine in IE but not in Firefox grrr!! Should i replace this with just a spacer instead?

                            I've added a spacer and all is well now. Take a look at the same address as before.

                            Cheers
