CSS Form Display Problem in FireFox

CSS Form Display Problem in FireFox

I'm trying out my first form using the new CSS Form Builder. I built a simple form that displays correctly in Internet Explorer 8, but not in Firefox 3.5.2.

In Firefox, the form deplays after the end of the left side bar. So there is a huge space in the main content area before the form is displayed. I'm thinking it must be some CSS setting, but for the life of me, I can not figure what it is. I tried wrapping the form in its own DIV, but that did not help. Any hints will be greatly appreciated.

You can observe this behavior at contact.php


Thanks,
Ken

From looking at it, it looks like a "float" issue on one of your divs. I would wrap the entire form in a div but make sure if you want to place t beside that other div, that it needs to 1). also be floated (you can float left or right and then determine the gutter space between the two using margin) and 2.) have the correct width set. If the width of the div is wider than the space allotted - OR - if you don't set a width on the floated div, I believe Firefox makes the assumption that the div is 100% wide if it is specified as a "block" element.

You may also have something clearing the float prematurely.

Best regards,

Brian

If you set the position to absolute on the:
#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content

css element, the form should be positioned correctly.

CSS Form Display Problem in FireFox

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for your reply. When I set the position to absolute for #outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content DIV the form did display in the upper left conner of the DIV along side of the sidebar. However the height of main content DIV was only as tall as the sidebar and did not continue. Thus because the form is taller than the sidebar, it displayed past the DIV and on top of the footer.

There is probably something I could of done to fix that problem as well, but I tried Brian's solution first and that is working.

Thanks for taking the time to respond,

Ken

CSS Form Display Problem in FireFox

Hi Brian,

Thank you for your response. I wrapped the form up in a DIV and then set the float to Left and that seems to have taken care of the display issue.

Thanks so much,

Ken
