Website Bugs

Here I will talk about problems I have had based on the website coding, bugs in a browser and anything else I can think of. This will show what has caused delays in design, layout and maybe a wrong output.

I have made a table to show which browsers this site has been tested for. You can click on any of the links to find a browser bug, problem by date or the default few. You can view the list by Browser, Total and last month. Minor issues like height and width are excluded as many people would argue one browser has it right when another does not. Please see the below for the bug count:

Web Browser Total
Google Chrome 1 2
Google Chrome 2 2
Firefox 2 3
Firefox 3 2
Firefox 4 3
Internet Explorer 6 8
Internet Explorer 7 4

Safari 5 3

Shown below are the last 10 bug reports. If you find similar, don't stress over it. I have wasted lots of time trying work arounds. Some work, but others do not.
