Soft shadows around photos on a particular website appear as heavy black frames in Firefox 5.0 although they look like proper shadows in Firefox 4.0 and in other browsers. How can I get the shadows to display correctly??

The shadow effect on two sides of the photos on this site looked fine in Firefox 4.0. When I upgraded to 5.0, the heavy black "frames" appeared in place of the shadows. No change had been made to the website between the time I looked at it in 4.0 and 5.0 (I know because I know the builder of the site). Indeed, it was only about an hour between my two viewings. So I figure the odd appearance has to have something to do with 5.0. But what? Is this fixable? Or do I need to wait for 5.1?

That is either a bug in Firefox 5 or the script has a problem with Firefox 5.
It works in all other Firefox versions like Firefox 3 and 4 and 6 (Aurora) and 7 (Nightly).

Thanks, cor-el. I appreciate your quick response. It's probably a bug in 5.0.

You're welcome.


Maybe someone on the mozillaZine forums knows about this issue.

OK, I'll try those sources. Thanks again.
