Wir unterbrechen das laufende Programm ...

For once a German blog post: Einfach für Alle warns against the Firefox update, since it seems to contain a few CSS bugs. I haven't seen this warning anywhere in the English blogosphere, and all documentation is in German.

The problem seems to be that floats with negative margins aren't cleared properly, and aren't properly contained in their parent element, either. (Source)

Good to know.

Firefox document.all caveat

Scott Andrew discovered that Firefox does support document.all, which it's supposed to ignore. So Firefox now executes supposedly IE-only code branches.
Annoying, but since we haven't needed document.all at all since IE 4 went down, it shouldn't be too big a problem for standards aware JavaScript sites.

developer.mozilla.org - alpha

Dedicated to providing solid information, documentation, and community for Mozilla and Firefox developers. Looks like an interesting initiative, and as far as I can see now the JavaScript and DOM pages might eventually take the place of the alas disappeared devedge JavaScript reference.
