HTML links not working in firefox.
Hello everyone, this is my first post here and i would just like to say hello to everyone.
i have just launched my site using godaddy here is the link.... http://www.limegreenlizzard.com/
now my problem is the site is very basic and does not have that much functionality but still i have issues with firefox. I use microsoft webmatrix and the site runs great on all browsers when testing from my localhost but now that i have the site live on Godaddy servers Firefox wont access some of the content because it is in folders or there is a "/" at the beginning of my src attribute because IE and Chrome both require it to work. when that "/" is removed Firefox works great.
now for my question.... is there a way to link it to one source for IE and Chrome and another for Firefox??
Should be :
<img src="\Pics\9and10news.gif" alt="9and10news" id="9and10" class="sponsors"/>
Just one example of slashes going the wrong way.
<img src="/Pics/9and10news.gif" alt="9and10news" id="9and10" class="sponsors"/>

However, on a *nix/Apache system that's not the case. All of those are different files and filepaths. Best practice is to use all lower-case folder/directory and file names. Also make abso-dam-lutely sure you are using / instead of \ in your file paths. Larnt both the hard way years ago. I even use lower-case names for files that will only be used on Windows systems just to be sure.
HTML linkss works everywhere..... kevin is right there is slashes issue
