Hello,

I've built a site that looks great in every browser except for FireFox Mac,

does anyone know of a conditional comment method that will target firefox mac?

any ideas would be great,

thanks in advance for your time!

Chances are if you site doesn't look the way you wanted it to in Firefox then there is likely something wrong with your code.

well it looks prefect in firefox windows, ie 6, ie 7, safari & opera.
just not FF Mac. I've gone over the code several times. and evrything should be fine.

so I'd say that there's some specific issue with FF on Mac.

but thanks for the criticism anyway.

FF/mac uses the same rendering engine as FF/win. Are you sure they're the same version of the browser?

I agree with Aero though, across the board FF has better standards support than any IE browser so I'd imagine it's a problem with your code.

Conditional comments are a proprietary windows construct that only applies to internet explorer, so you won't be able to target FF/mac that way. Also, of all the CSS filters that exist there's none that will target FF/mac and not FF/win (since they're the same rendering engine).

Your only option of singling FF/Mac out would be user agent strings, but I still feel like it's just a problem in your code.

Yes, both my PC & Mac are using the exact same version, but the FF on Mac is rendering differently. I thought they would be the exact same engine. but I guess not.

A link would be really helpful.

I believe I misspoke a little in that the CSS support for FF Win/Mac is exactly the same, but likely there are minor differences in rendering pipelines since they have to use slightly different code bases. Correct CSS code will render the same in both though.

Because of this, I still think the difference you're seeing is related to differences in error-case handling, or differences in how they're handling contradictory or inconsistent CSS usage.

You would really help yourself by sharing your code with us so we can help you, rather than dismissing our instincts of CSS misuse and trying to place it all on browser differences.
