I have a situation where Firefox (and Safari) appears not to be reading some
style specifications. The example can be seen at
Please note: I do not have control of this page, so please don't criticize
me for validation errors or other problems.
I'm sorry to have to ask for help where it may be difficult for those who
are attempting to aid me. But this page is being delivered by a third-party
service. Essentially, I have the ability to add new style specifications to
override the service's stylesheets. The styling I add is written directly
into the page.
In Firefox, some of the input fields (such as Maximum Price and Minimum
Price) have a white background and different fonts and text colors from the
Please look at the embedded styles. The next-to-last entry is for
#ihfSearch10_MinPrice input, #ihfSearch10_MaxPrice input
.... and a few other input fields, setting the colors and font to match the
other input fields.
These settings are used by IE, but not Firefox, on either PC or Mac, or by
Safari.. Inspecting the application of the CSS in Firebug, these input
elements don't show any recognition that those embedded style specs even
exist. They simply show styling from the linked stylesheets.
Safari doesn't seem to read the color or background color specs on sny of
the input fields. And its reading of the font family appears to match
Firefox -- which is to say, there's a mixture of fonts.
Could someone suggest what might be preventing Firefox and Safari from
seeing these specifications? I realize that the situation of so many style
specs attempting to override each other is very confusing, but as I say,
it's something I cannot control.
Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.
