(Core :: Layout, defect)

Windows XP
Not set

My CSS had the following Element code:

HR {
	color : #FF0000;
	background : transparent;
This renders properly in red in I.E. 6.0 and the thickness of the line is
somewhat substantial. In Mozilla the line is off-white and quite thin.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Mozilla treats HR as a block-level element and IE does not, so the CSS required
is different for each browser.  In Mozilla you have to set the background-color
to get a color change.

Try this for good cross-browser compatibility:

hr {
  background : #FF0000;
  border : 1px solid #FF0000;
  color : #FF0000;
  height : 1px;
Ian, do you think it would make sense to just use an inset border and set the
color of HR in ua.css?  That way setting both color and border-color from author
sheets will have the same effect....

And if that would make sense, don't we already have a bug on making
-moz-bg-inset a color, not a style?
Whiteboard: DUPEME
There is a bug suggesting we just nuke all the -bg- styles, making the HR colour
be based on the foreground text colour instead of the background colour. I would
not be opposed to this.

If we want to keep using the background colour, though, then yes, we should
change from using three styles to simply using the normal styles (inset, outset,
solid) and supporting a new color (-moz-bg-color) that works everywhere.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
