Internet Explorer has the content/mid area tables displaying with a black background and greyish borders while FireFox has it almost all transparent (I tried going in and fixing it but made it look worse with little patches of black)
How do I make Firefox look like Internet Explorer ....I don't want Firefox to have a transparent background in my news section...it makes everything hard to read.
You will need to go in any give a background color to different sections. Either it has not been defined or defined as transparent.
The problem is Firefox is showing you what the CSS actually calls for. IE on the otherhand is simply showing you what you want to see. The CSS has problems that Firefox is showing you and IE is hiding from you. So clearly the CSS was written by someone for IE and not for standard compliant browsers.
You will have to play with it till you identify what sections are clear and then color them in.
