Firefox no longer displays web page text.


Hello.

I made some changes to a web site (page) created with MS Front Page Extentions.

When the site was first created there wasn't any problem displaying the page in either IE or Firefox.

Now the complete page can only be displayed in IE.

The page comes up in Firefox but only the background displays...no pictures or text.

Any Ideas on how to solve this or where to look for further help will be appreciated.

I'm a newbie running Centos 5.

Thanks.

Take a close look at the change(s) you made to see what might make the page IE specific.

Did you save a copy of the pages before you made changes to them ? you could always compare the old and new code, or use a text/html editor with 'syntax highlighting' that may show unclosed tags etc.. in your page.


==============================

Better yet, quit using Front Page. The fact that it is a Microsoft product, should alert you that it will create horrid bloated and broken HTML code and cause problems for non MS browsers..

There are other options..
Quanta +
Blue Fish Editor
Mozilla Composer
NVU

Check the Linux Questions: Members Choice Awards for some other options.
