I have nero backup set for incremental backup at 1330 hrs weekly/sturday. After the backup Firefox report "Download Sort" and forecastbar as incompatible, where they were originally reported as compatible. Had to install roboform twice as site for downloading update was not up to date itself. This may have been part of issue as FF is sensitive to how may remove/installs it does in a session.

I had all sorts of problems getting styleable elements to work in Firefox 3.6. The below code works:



Test

 article { display: block; border: 1px solid red }



Welcome This is a test.



However, it works only because of:

display: block;

when styling the HTML5 article element. If I leave the above code out of the style then the red border is not displayed properly. This code works fine in Chrome and even versions of IE when the article element is added to the DOM.
