    Firefox and Safari not displaying 2008 entries

    Ok folks... this is a weird one.

    I redesigned this site: www.oconnellfuneralhomes.com

    To the bottom left are a list of obituaries and under the tab are the corresponding obituaries. Using IExplorer you are able to view the website without issues. However, if you use Firefox or Safari, (both mac and windows) the listings stop in December 2007. No 2008 obituaries are listed for the user.

    I did not write the PHP for the website, I simply used what was already built as it served its purpose. This is the only time this has come to the attention to the client.

    Any ideas as to what may be causing this or where I need to look in order to debug this situation?

    I know I should probably displaying some of the PHP code, but, there are many files that make this work, and I am not sure exactly which ones you gurus would want. Available upon request.

    Thank you in advance for your answers and advice.

    new year

    If the years shown are truly different in diferrent browsers (which isn't true as far as I can tell, I see no 2008 dates in IE or Opera either), then I suspect the mess of conditional comments is invloved.
    HTML Code:
    <li><a class="menu2two" href="philosophy.html">About Us
    <!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
    	<table><tr><td>
    	<ul>
    	<li><a href="staff.html">Our Caring Team</a></li>
    	<li><a href="facilities.html">Our Facilities</a></li>
    	<li><a href="logo.html">Our Meaningful Logo</a></li>
    	<li><a href="memorial.html">Dan O'Connell Memorial</a></li><!--<![endif]-->
    	<!--[if lte IE 6]></a><![endif]-->
    	</li>
    	</ul>
    	</td></tr></table>
    <!--[if lte IE 6]></a><![endif]-->
    </li>
    <li><a class="menu2three" href="obituaries.php">Obituaries
    <!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
    <!--[if lte IE 6]></a><![endif]-->
    </li>
    <li><a class="menu2three" href="prearrange.html">Prearranging
    <!--[if IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
    <!--[if lte IE 6]></a><![endif]-->
    </li>
    But I'm more suspicious of the obituaries.php file, in particular the code that deals with the "show" GET variable.

    I agree, and as for the HTML:
    HTML Code:
    <li><a class="menu2two" href="philosophy.html">About Us</a>
       <table>
          <tr>
             <td>
                <ul>
                   <li><a href="staff.html">Our Caring Team</a></li>
                   <li><a href="facilities.html">Our Facilities</a></li>
                   <li><a href="logo.html">Our Meaningful Logo</a></li>
                   <li><a href="memorial.html">Dan O'Connell Memorial</a></li>
                </ul>
             </td>
          </tr>
       </table>
    </li>
    <li><a class="menu2three" href="obituaries.php">Obituaries</a></li>
    <li><a class="menu2three" href="prearrange.html">Prearranging</a></li>
    You should have no browser problems with it.

    However, it is apparent that it's a PHP problem, not a browser issue.
