View Full Version : Font colour changes in Browsers

06-14-2008, 10:28 AM
Hi, the CSS button links on my site work fine in IE but change and appear as red in colour on Safari/Fireworks despite the fact they should be white. Any ideas what could be causing the problem? I've checked all the properties in Dreamweaver and the colours are as they should be.

Can you post a link? Sounds like a job for... *drum roll*... FIREBUG !

It's a test site hence the long link.


All pages are affected. Thanks for your help.

I assume you mean firefox and not fireworks...

The links are white in my browsers (IE7 & FF)

I did mean Firefox! It's fine for me in IE but not Firefox nor Safari.
Any ideas, have you come across this problem before?

I can't see a problem - white links with a grey rollover.

I'll dig into the css and see if I can see where the red is coming from...

What's strange is this occurs only when I load it into the host server directory. When I edit the pages in Contribute it appears red but once I click on the text it appears white as it should. No where in the properties can I see a red font marked. Is it possible there could be something causing this in the host server?

You're not defining any of the link pseudo 'states'. a:link, a:visited, a:hover, a:active

Okay thanks, I'll take a look and define these and get back to you if it's still an issue afterwards.
