Using the HTML Validator for Firefox, I have found that every page I open has errors, not just the ones I have designed; why?

Even using it on this page there are 5 errors geneated. I am using HTML Tidy. Is there something wrong? Am I using it incorrectly?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Could we add this to a bug with web compatibility team as well as in the support.mozilla.org component of bugzilla. http://validator.w3.org/unicorn/check?ucn_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fsupport....

HTML5 validation and Web Compatibility in Firefox is something we can strive for and there has been a site developed by a Mozillian to address these compatibility issues. http://dev.webcompat.com/about Please read more about this project and add a description to the bug you file for validation. You are not doing anything wrong, just to clarify.

I will also start a bug in the forum as improvements are being made this quarter and next. Thank you!

I checked and agree this page does not pass validation

That validator is an official w3.org validator

I suppose it could be expected these pages would pass validation. I will mark this for escalation lets see what HelpDesk's observations are on that.

I also note that html tidy appears to be a utility originating from w3.org

As for your own problems with web design that would best be discussed elsewhere.
Ordinarily I would say a Mozillazine forum may be a good place to try

Now that Webmaker have a presence on this forum it may actually be worth asking again and specifically asking from

IF you are attempting to use any Webmaker advice or product
