Display Differences in FireFox / IE6



  • 1. Stylizing DataTips
    I have not been able to find documentation surround the stylization of a DataTip over a Graph. In Flex 1.5, is there a way to stylize the DataTips? I am looking to: 1) change the opacity of the background and maybe the color of the DataTips, 2) Change the border of the DataTips to be one consistent color no matter what the Barseries color is. Thanks in advance for any help. - Frank Dalton:D

 I have an example in front of me that I built with Flex Builder 3 in Eclipse, 
and when I open it in Firefox it looks just fine, but in IE6 it shows 
differences in the rendering.

 Is that theoretically possible, does Adobe Flash install different plugins (of 
the same version) in different browsers, or "does it have to be a glitch on my 
side" ?

 tia for your thoughts & experiences,

It would be nice if you would post a link so the rest of us could "see" the differences in our browsers, FF and IE.

Yes, we'd need to see it. This is not really possible. Flash should render the 
content identically, regardless of the browser, unless...
 1) Check which version of the Flash Player you are targeting in your 
application (under "Flex Compiler"). Hopefully, at least version 9.
 2) Are the fonts looking different on different machines? Embed them so they 
look the same everywhere.
 3) Is it merely your app's position in the html page? This could look 
different if the app is not taking up the entire screen. It's position would 
then be entirely dependent on your HTML page's code, and then subject to 
browser interpretation.

2.Text display differences in IE 6 vs. Firefox

Hello Group,

I am developing a web site using CSS.  I have a div that has a vert
scroll bar in it.  The div works just fine (scroll up and down, etc).
I have regular text (using <p> tags) in the div, as well as an
unordered list - with 3 or 4 list items.  The display of text in the
scroller div is just fine in firefox.

When I look at the same page using IE 6 - my li text is larger (font
size) than the text in the <p> tags.

this happens only with ie 6.  Is there some sort of "fix" that will
allow ie to have the same text display as firefox???  In my css i do
have this: but I think it just deals with the width of my divs (I
 this is from my secondary css file
* html div#mainContent {
	/* value for ie browsers  width was 310*/
	width: 310px;
	/* value for MAC IE browsers */
	w\idth: 290px;

I am using two css files, and a few lines of css in the document in

I have this code in my "top" css file:
html > body {font-size:small;}

I believe the rest of my css is "ok" since what I am doing is not
exotic - but I must be missing something between IE and Firefox.

Any suggestions,



3.Firefox vs. IE Display Differences

I have web pages that look good in Firefox, Mozilla, and Netscape. However with 
IE 6.0 there is a slight difference. I have form with a 3 column, 1 row that is 
being used a search routine and this form is positioned into a navigation menu. 
All looks fine and the same for Firefox, Mozilla, and Netscape. However with 
IE, the form seems to be about 5 px lower. Any ideas?
