    hello. i've been working on a website and everything works/looks fine except when viewing the site with firefox on a mac...

    one of the pages has two frames that should work at the same time when a link is clicked on the page. however neither appear. i have another page which has only one frame and it is working fine. so i'm thinking there must be something in my code which is making it impossible for the two frames to work smoothly in firefox. i hope this makes sense...


    here is the problem page (with two frames, one to the left of the links and one above the links):



    and this page works fine (with one frame to the left of the links):



    if anyone can shed some light i'd really appreciate it, thankyou.

    Frames now-a-days are frowned upon and are something to avoid, especially if you are to pass the "W3C Validation Test" and follow set conventions - which yours didn't with 42 errors just on your homepage!

    I'd check your site using http://validator.w3.org/ and work your way through the errors.

    This is the exact reason conventions and this validator were put in place - so the same webpage would look identical across several different types of browser and platforms.
