Why do the rollovers on the website I have made do what I want them to in Chrome but not in Firefox or Internet Explorer?

I have just finished building this website... http://www.frankxcarter.com ...for a friend of mine. In Google Chrome the front page displays with no lines across the photograph and the link images {Journal, Photos, etc.) appear when you roll the mouse over the photograph. However, in Firefox there are thick horizontal white lines across the image and in Internet Explorer the rollovers don't display properly at all! Any advice as to how I can rectify will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Theo

Firefox restoring the wrong tabs

I have firefox (3.6.8) running with 20-30 tabs open, and sometimes when I close it, I fail to realize there is one small pop-up window running as well. The result is whenever I restart firefox, only the pop-up window is restored, and not the window with 30 tabs. Searching through my history works ok to retrieve some tabs, but some tabs were opened weeks ago, and I don't remember all of the tabs I had open. Is there any way to restore all of those missing tabs?

My browsers have ADD

How do I get my browser(s) to stop back tracking? When I use both Firefox and Chrome on my office computer, the browser will automatically flip back to the previous page (as if I hit the "back" button) after about 30 seconds. It will actually keep doing it until it gets back to the first page I opened in the browser. It doesn't happen with all web pages (Gmail and Metafilter seem fine), but it's particularly a problem with media sites (e.g. local newspapers, the Atlantic, Good Magazine). I mostly get around it by holding 'ctrl' when I click a link so it opens in a new tab and can't back track. But it's a pain in the butt. Is there a way to stop this?

Can't Display Unicode #0CAO -- Part of Emoticon Meme and Thus *Everywhere* -- in Mac Firefox. Help?

I can't get Unicode character 0CAO -- which is a part of a popular emoticon-based meme -- to correctly display in Firefox, despite, as far as I can tell, having the necessary fonts installed on the system. A picture speaks a thousand words, so: These are my Firefox font settings. This is how this page looks in Firefox. This is how it looks in Safari. This page suggested I needed Arial Unicode MS (which appears to already be part of the Mac OS X operating system?). I also installed a Kannada font from here. No go. Any ideas? It's not so much that I really love the meme; moreso that I really detest seeing those Unicode boxes pop up everywhere on God's green Earth when the character fails to display in Firefox.

strange Firefox problem

Using Firefox 3.6.3, Windows 7 Ultimate Edition. I have noticed over the past several days an error that makes reference to a script that is failing to run. I'm not sure how to replicate the error, but it essentially freezes Firefox, and I have to go into Windows Task Manager and kill firefox.exe and re-open it. Unfortunately I don't remember the exact wording of the error message. [more inside]

Make Firefox spell check a name

I find that I am consistently misspelling a certain proper name when sending mail to a friend who bears that name. I need a way to force the spell check built in to Firefox to flag the improper spelling. This is the exact opposite of the Firefox personal dictionary, which lets you prevent the spell check from flagging uncommon words you use that you know are spelled correctly. I've Googled extensively, and cannot find a solution. Can anyone provide an answer? I am running Firefox 3.5.9 on Ubuntu Linux 9.10 (Karmic Koala).

Dear Facebook Pop-up: Never darken my doorstep again.

Occasionally when opening pages that have the Facebook "Like" sidebar box thing (usually Wired or ThereIFixedIt), I get a pop-up that looks like the sidebar (like this--pictures and names blurred to protect random strangers). The address for this pop-up is usually in the form http://www.connect.facebook.com/widgets/fan.php?api_key=... I'm using Firefox with about a million extensions, none of which specifically apply to Facebook, Wired, etc. I have pop-ups disabled and neither Facebook nor any of the sites I'm getting the pop-up from have any exceptions in my pop-up preferences. I want to never see that pop-up again, what do I need to do to make this happen?

Is there a Firefox extension that will let you hover over keywords on the page and have it show a quick summary from wikipedia?

Is there a Firefox extension that will let you hover over keywords on the page and have it show a quick summary from wikipedia? I'm using a Firefox Extension from evri.com that does this, but it also comes with an ugly toolbar. If you hide the toolbar, the functionality goes away, but I really like it. (Example.) Is there anything like this? That maybe does it better? Most importantly is it bringing this data in dynamically without me having to spawn a new window or leave the page.
