First off, thanks to everyone who pitches in to help resolve this headache. Sheesh!

Problem: The Header image and text do not display properly in Firefox: The content does displays properly in Chrome, Opera and Safari. By the way: I have read and attempted all the applicable troubleshooting suggestions Firefox has supplied without success.

Website: The page in question is

Note: I coded the site myself using largely a w3.css framework. Admittedly, the source code is messy. I'm still chimpin' around (experimenting) with things.

Incredibly, am unable to upload two 137 kb screen captures of the problem for visual reference - an endless spin wheel for 12-minutes. Wha..? In that case, please visit my site in Chrome and then Firefox to see the difference. the site again:

TyDraniu, THAT'S IT!!! You have no idea how long I looked at this problem like an ape looking at fire for the first time.

It never dawned on me that a browser to browser quirk could be so specific. So, this is one quirk of Firefox quirk: The height property must be specified as 'height' instead of 'min-height'.

Thanks much to the Mozilla Support Community generally, and TyDraniu specifically, for pouncing on my problem so quickly.

Life is good!!!!
