From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; m18) Gecko/20001229 BuildID: 2000122920 The cascading style sheet effect for shadow does not work for any sites using that effect. Its a nice feature and adds additional coolness to pages. I did not see style sheets in the list for component so I chose I best one I could. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Just visit the site! Actual Results: No Shadow Expected Results: A Shadow
The shadow effect in question uses the filter: style rule which is an MSIE extension and is not in either the CSS1 or CSS2 specifications. So this is not a standards-compliance issue. Confirming the request for enhancement, however.

Summary: Shawdow CSS does not work. → rfe: implement the filter: style rule
There's already an RFE for implementing the 'text-shadow' property that *is* in the CSS standard: bug 10713.
I strongly recommend we mark this WONTFIX. 'filter' is not widely used, and we (Mozilla) have plenty of other fish to fry. In addition, implementing this is arguably bad since it is encouraging the use of non-standard techniques when standard techniques either exist (text-shadow, SVG) or are likely to exist at some point in the future.
Netscape's standard compliance QA team reorganised itself once again, so taking remaining non-tables style bugs. Sorry about the spam. I tried to get this done directly at the database level, but apparently that is "not easy because of the shadow db", "plus it screws up the audit trail", so no can do...

wontfix? do you realize that without the flipH filter, a user that will want to install a Hebrew (or any other RTL language) language pack, will also have to install a special theme with all the graphics flipped? not to mention the fact that we (the Hebrew l10n team) also have to develop this theme, in addition to making the language pack.
I'd suggest filing a separate bug for us implementing '-moz-img-flip' taking values 'horizontal', 'vertical', 'both', and 'normal'. That would be SIGNIFICANTLY easier than implementing 'filter' (or as it should be called, '-ie-filter').

What follows is just some thoughts. It is most certainly NOT intended to be criticism. Re Bug Report 222878 which has been marked as a duplicate of this: IE Image transitions don't really count as filters ! > It has already been decided not to support IE filters. That's a bit of a shame. I am finding more and more that IE doesn't support large chunks of the standards, especillay CSS. At the same time more and more clients are asking for this kind of functionality rather than use Flash. I even have had a request to implement a feature I had never heard of in IE. The ability to use an IFrame as an on-line web editor / designer !! But now M$ has decided to abandon IE and completely bundle it with the OS. This may mean no major update until 2006 !! So web designers are stuck. Why develop sites that are more standards / CSS compliant when IE doesn't support them ? Why not use some of these IE only features since, unfortunately, they are actually quite nice ! Sadly this, once again, appears to leave all other browser in the lurch. Which is slightly ironic since all other browsers do standards better than IE. > fwiw, this shouldbe easily possible with svg.. Please could you tell me how ? and is this possible with `photographs' ?

> I even have had a request to implement a feature I had never heard of in IE. > The ability to use an IFrame as an on-line web editor / designer !! We support that. Soon we'll be checking in some patches that bring our opacity support into line with the CSS3 spec. Once we've verified that they really work, we should be able to rename -moz-opacity to 'opacity' and you'll be able to use fully standards-based translucency. The new opacity support patches will make it much easier to support more general SVG/IE style filters. It's not beyond the realms of possibility that we could implement an extension that allows SVG filters to be applied to HTML elements. http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/filters.html
Hi, Maybe it is the time to change WONTFIX to OPEN? The statement was made 2 years ago. Now filter IS more widely used. 1. As 99% browsers are IE, the webmasters just don't care about other. 2. And as long as Mozilla will not support IE extensions it will not take more users. Why - because users are interested in final effect - not in standards. So again we are in point 1. I want to see such pages correctly. As I work with linux 99% time, the solution to use IE instead, is not for me!

>> I even have had a request to implement a feature I had never heard of in IE. >> The ability to use an IFrame as an on-line web editor / designer !! > We support that. I don't think so. Take a look at : https://www.enjudica.co.uk/gbhs/docs/maintenance/authentication/index.jsp?site=GBHS (uname= demo, pword= demo) to see what I mean. Apparently this uses a DOM element in IE called "designMode". See http://www.insidedhtml.com/tips/contents/ts12/page2.asp for more information. This is what I was talking about :-)
Image transitions would be excellent using SVG or anything else. However, it appears that most authors already know about "DXImageTransform", see http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/author/dhtml/howto/applyingtransition.asp This puts Mozilla in the same position as ALT tags ! I.e. no one is going to rewrite sites simply to comply with Mozilla when it already does what is expected in IE. Moreover, SVG won't address text DIVs and SPANs which "DXImageTransform" does cater for.

what a luck was that images are in w3c standarts becouse other way people which want to see images in their browser will have to use IE. STANDARTS is not only for folloing , standarts have to be created also. All this bugs about makeing thigs easer and are marked WONTFIX are bad.

WONT FIX??? Why? I thought you people CARED about your users??! UNLIKE bigger (cough microsoft) browsers??? :(
Because 'filter' is (a) non-standard and (b) used on almost no pages, despite being available for years and (c) would be hard to implement interoperably on multiple platforms. But don't worry: when Mozilla implements SVG filters, you'll be able to use those. And those are standard and everything.

Looking at the bug history we will see it in 2008 :) Just take a look at your comment #3. Any hint to do something like "opacity" with current mozilla. And have it working in IE too?
