    Unhappy opera bugs.

    I have a few opera bugs that I'm trying to wire out. I have a huge gap between my content and footer. It's kind of strange, but it's even rendering an entire image incorrectly. In the header it's showing a big read box in place of the lightning part of the image?!. Also, apparently it doesn't like image rollovers the css way. Any clues or hints?

    You didn't mention which version of Opera you tested against. Did you test against Opera 6 or 7? If you are talking about Opera 6, don't worry about it as it only accounts for 0.1% of web traffic. Opera 7 accounts for 0.5% of my web traffic (even when I used Opera regularly).

    The page listed above displays identically in Opera 7, Mozilla 1.5 and Firebird 0.7. From a user standpoint I didn't see anything that looked wrong. Personally I wouldn't worry about it. If you really want to fret over it, make sure you always define both margin and padding if you define one of them.

    I test it for opera 6.1 . Yeah, I know a very low percentage use opera. I just wanted to give it a whirl.

    Opera 6 had all kinds of problems as it didn't fully support CSS, DOM or DHTML. You might be able to fix the problem but it could require a lot of head banging or browser sniffing. If it doesn't break the site, I'd ignore it. Opera 6 will be total history within a year.

    Disregarding how much market share Opera has overall, most stats I've seen indicate that the majority (>80%) of Opera users are now on version 7.

    My logs show the same basic thing. If nothing else, at least most Opera users are rapid adopters of the latest version of Opera.

    Hi,

    the main problem seems to be, that the footer is not included in the container div.
    HTML Code:
    ...
    <div class="footer"></div>
    </div> <!-- end of container div -->
    ...
    After changing the code as shown above and some modifications to the footer/container borders the page looks fine to me in IE5.5, IE6, Opera 6.05, Opera 7.23 and Firebird 0.7.
