View Full Version : FF hover cursor hand question

05-04-2011, 09:39 PM
I had a moment to drop in and ask a question.

Is there a fragment of code I can add to my CSS to make sure the hover hand (cursor) in FF always shows? On my page -- which is in progress -- there are some links that hover with the hand and some that hover with the vertical select cursor. I do not like that vertical selector.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

cursor : auto;
Use cursor : pointer; instead.

PS: You've some errors in your CSS too, see http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?profile=css21&warning=0&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theeagleextra.com%2Fsophie1.html

Hi abduraooft,

How did you get w3c to run that validation? I simply use the test built into my software program or I click on the logo on my page.

Thank you for your post. After I finish delivering my newspapers and mailing them, I'll be back on the page later this afternoon. With the rain, I won't be doing any garden tilling. I had four of them scheduled for this afternoon after work.

Thank you for the code fragment. I will implement it.

I'll also correct the errors you found. Thank you for pointing them out to me. I appreciate it.

I tried your cursor code fragment and it worked! Thank you for that.

Also, I corrected my errors. I didn't know there was a separate validation process for the CSS. I'm learning more and more everyday and I have people like you to thank for it.

I notice that my outer border on my new page is about 4 pixels shorter in FF and Chrm than in IE9. I noticed it because my icons and content appear a little bit more cramped.

If you have any suggestions as to what could be causing it, I would like to hear them.

Thanks again for taking the time to teach me.
