    Unhappy Same code works differently in Firefox and IE..Help!

    Hi, i am quite new to css and Jquery but i think this is a css issue.

    I have created a simple image slideshow with a fade effect using JQuery. The functions works fine in both IE and Firefox however, as soon as i added the function it made the clickable links on the entire page un-uasable JUST in Firefox (works fine on IE).

    I played around with this as i thought it had something to do with the layering of the element on the page, so i added a Z-index: -20 to this slideshow styles:

    ul.slideshow li {
    z-index:-20; float: right;


    This fixed half of the issue as now the content below the header and navigation is all clickable but the navigation still isn't. I can see this is due to the style related to the content below to navigation to have a z-index: -10

    div.content {
    top: 10px;
    left: 10px;
    float: left;
    display: inline;
    margin-top: 2px;
    margin-right: 10px;
    padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px;
    z-index: -10;

    So i played around with the navigation styles and the z-index but it didn't work. I have been working on this one issue for the past 3 days and is now driving me nuts! I am not sure that z-index is the right answer for this issue.

    I would be very grateful if someone could help me out, wherther they have come across the same problem or know a fix to make firefox work the same as IE. Thanks

    Heres the link to the page: http://code-thesalon.com/newsite/contact.html

    Here are the css styles linked with this page:

    (navigation styles)

    #navlist { position:relative; float:left; background-color:#FBDBDF; margin: 10px 10px 10px 10px; z-index: -25; }

    #navlist .container { padding: 0px 0px 0px; background-color:#FBDBDF; }

    #navlist .nudge {position:relative; left: -40px; z-index: 0}

    #navlist ul { float:left; width:auto; z-index: 0 }

    #navlist li {
    postion: relative;
    display: inline;
    list-style-type: none;
    padding-left: 15px;
    font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    z-index: 0;

    #navlist li a:link { color:#333; z-index: 0 }
    #navlist li a:hover { color:#FFF; z-index: 0 }

    (slideshow styles)

    .MainImgSizeSlide {

    width: 40%;

    float: right;
    z-index: 0;
