View Full Version : Scroll bar Firefox vs Safari

07-18-2011, 05:15 PM
Hello! Can anyone tell me why this scroll bar is not appearing in Firefox, but is totally fine in Safari!!! I will be eternally grateful.

This is driving me crazy!!


(The scroll is in the "spotlight" section)

Thank you!!!!!!!

I havent had time to test this but it might have something to do with in your html you actually have your overflow set to hidden.

<div id="spotlight">
<div id="spotlight_head"><span class="spotlight_header">*Spotlight</span></div>
<object type="text/html" data="spotlight.html" style="width:260px; height:340px; margin:1%; overflow:hidden;"></object>

Change that to overflow:auto; and see what happens. Like I said I havent tested but that was something I saw right away.

That's for the parent page, and I don't want that scroll bar to be visible...there is a scroll bar on the object page, which controls yet another object. The 2nd page scroll is the one that's disappearing. Thanks!

Anyone else have any idea? I'm still stumped!

nvm i get it now

try fixing your errors that you already have:

#mycustomscroll {
/* Typical fixed height and fixed width example */
width: 200px;
height: 280px;
overflow: auto;
/* IE overflow fix, position must be relative or absolute*/
position: relative;
background-color: #52c0bc;
margin: 0.3 em auto;
top: 60px;
padding-top: 0px;
padding-left: 15px;
padding-right: 15px;

3em not 3 em

from what i see, you probably forgot to close or left off an end tag
Iv never used an object with an object, but there could be a chance that you can not do that. Kind of like how you cant put a <!-- --> within a <!-- -->


this is firefox's inspect element, as you can see there is nothing in the object which means what I stated above.

There is also a chance that the server did not completely upload the files, which would be an issue you have to work out with your service provider (not likely in this case)

Thank you all. I cleaned up the code, and got rid of the object within the object, but the scroll still isn't showing up in Firefox!!! The thing is, I had this working perfectly before I made some minor changes to the object, and the changes to the projects.html page were minial. I just still can't figure out why what it is!!
