Firefox overriding CSS values for link colors



All hyperlinked images are appearing with a linked border-style colorization. Border-style should be none for all <a href="..."></a>.

a { border: none; } a:hover { border: none; } a:link { border: none; } a:visited { border: none: }

The above code is all being used. I have firebug and, even after inspecting the elements, see no properties set to display a border style, width, or color. Firefox is the ONLY browser incorrectly displaying these pages.

More Information

I've tried overriding with CSS and with HTML. The only thing that makes a difference is when I go through Firefox preferences and change the color there. I have the box checked that says website are allowed to define their own colors and that those sites will override Firefox, but Firefox is obviously still overriding my webpages.

Thanks a bunch Cor-El.

That forum has the answer. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=1188135&sid=d4b70caa58ad9a482f96418087cf0ce0

basically you just have to add the following code to the CSS:

a img { border:none; }

This fixes all.
