Hi,

I have a website which works fine in IE but I need to make it work in Mozilla perfectly.

I need to do this really fast. It just has HTML,CSS and javascript.

Can anybody help me in this.


Thanks in advance

What are you expecting anybody to do given the scant information you have provided? What's going wrong? What sections of code aren't working properly?

Chances are you've used proprietary, IE-only code that is not working in standards-compliant browsers. But without a great deal more detail, I'm not sure what other help can be offered.

I need to build a house with wood, nails, and paint. How do I build a house that looks like the one near Fred's house?

There are an tons of houses out there with a guy named Fred in it. And there are a bunch of houses to the left and right of those.

You need to show us some code or give us a link to your issues.

Arundhati,

Two tips to be taken very seriously:
  • Develop in Firefox first, FIX for IE
  • Consider the Yahoo! User Interface (YUI)

  • The first tip is something that drives me crazy about most Java engineers, they develop in IE as if they are building a .NET app! HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are not technologies owned or invented by Micros~1. In fact, most of the time, Micros~1 gets it wrong. When you develop in Firefox (or Opera and Safari) you are at least getting Core support of DOM 0 and 1, CSS 1, 2, and 2.1, and better HTML validation. With IE, you get mostly broken implementations of these features. Additionally, most resources will address fixing IE, not fixing Firefox. Think about that, you'll get more resources for fixing IE!

    The second tip will provide you some sanity. The YUI is an open-source JavaScript and CSS library that follows a "Graded Browser Support" model that Yahoo! tests in all current browsers and, short of a guarantee or promise, makes every effort to be sure that layouts and code using the YUI library wil behave identically across most popular platforms.

    HTH, a little.

    Or better yet: "test early, test often!"

    I try to incrementally make sure that my code is working on all supported browsers before too much can go awry.

    Using a cross-browser library such as jQuery also helps eliminate a lot of the pain.

    P.S. In Firefox, be sure to have the FireBug plugin installed. It's an invaluable debugging tool.
