Browser Detection Safari Versus Firefox - IF Else Statement
Jul 6, 2010
I am getting differences in the rendering between Safari and Firefox. I've tried to come up with a JS script to sort them out but I am not having much luck. Safari always produces "red", the same as FF or nothing at all (where I substitute 'vendor' for 'userAgent', etc). Here's my little test program to isolate the basic code:
<link href="testcss/ff.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
alert("the user agent is:" + browser_type);
if(browser_type != -1)
I'm going to make an attempt at coding a nice tree menu that is decent with browser support.
I want the tree to be displayed on all browsers (well, within a decent range). Of course, on older browsers, the menu won't be as functional.
Like, what if a browser that doesn't support objects period tries to run some object detection code? Also, which browsers support user defined objects?
Between the <head> tags but then it doesn't load. It only loads if I add them into the page. Above my slider: Code: <div id="slider" style="width: 400px ! important; height: 300px ! important;"><img src="[URL]frontpage1.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage1" /> <img src="[URL]frontpage2.JPG" border="0" alt="frontpage2" /> <img src="[URL]frontpage3.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage3" /> <img src="[URL]frontpage4.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage4" /> <img src="[URL]frontpage5.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage5" /><img src="[URL]frontpage6.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage6" /><img src="[URL]frontpage7.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage7" /><img src="[URL]frontpage8.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage8" /><img src="[URL]frontpage9.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage9" /><img src="[URL]frontpage10.jpg" border="0" alt="frontpage10" /></div>
I've have got this script, the only thing I want to be changed is the first part. It has to detect IE version 6 instead of just "Microsoft Internet Explorer". Can somebody help me out? I tried "Microsoft Internet Explorer 6" but that doesn't work.
I want to know the height of the viewable portion of a page (minus scrollbar) in Opera and Mozilla.
For Opera, I could use document.body.clientHeight. Unfortunately, this won't work in Mozilla because Mozilla also subtracts the sizes of the top and bottom margins.
For Mozilla, I could use document.documentElement.clientHeight. Unfortunately, this won't work in Opera because Opera returns the height of the entire page, not just the viewable portion.
So I have two options:
1) Use browser detection code to determine if the user is running Opera or Mozilla, and then use the appropriate clientHeight code.
2) Use window.innerHeight. This is supported by both Opera and Mozilla, however it returns the height of the viewable portion of the page *including* the scrollbar. Is there any way to determine the width of a scrollbar? If not, then I would have to make an assumption and subtract the hardcoded width of the scrollbar from window.innerHeight... but only if the scrollbar is present, is there a way to determine that?
Well after playing around a little I have created a solution that works although it appears a little chunky. The problem was finding the browser size to use the width as a variable for size conditional aspects to a site. Code:
I'm relatively new to jQuery and have just been learning the basics/playing around with plugins etc. I'm building a site that uses a jQuery page easing (where is scrolls smoothly down to an anchor element on the same page) - however, the script isn't working great in opera despite me trying all suggested fixes, so i have decided to have opera just page jump as per the default browser action.
My question is - Is there a way of a) detecting which browser the user is using and then if it's NOT Opera, writing the pageEase script to the page?
I voluntarily contribute on eBay's member-to-member Photos/HTML community forums along with a handful of other contributors.We often have eBay members that post on the forums that have trouble uploading images to eBay for the items that they want to sell. To properly help and diagnose these member's issues, we need to know information about their system, such as the browser that they are using, browser version, Adobe flash version, etc.
I've been seeking for an online tool that can detect info regarding one's system. There are various tools online to detect detailed info about one's system, such as this one, but they either give out too much information, or does detect everything I'd like to see answered.
I would like to have a custom script made that will detect the following information:web browser
browser version, including sub-version OS platform adobe flash version, including sub-version
the tool will detect the above information automatically, or upon user input, and send the info to a text box where the user can copy the generated info regarding their system and paste it on the forums for volunteer helpers to look at.
i've designed a site using firefox as my primary browser. (note: i'm on an old mac so limited to only what i can run on 10.2.8) i tweaked it for safari, and then took the stuff on a jump drive to the library and tweaked it for IE6 on a pc.
i've just spent two days--thursday and today since since 10 a.m.--trying to figure out first the js, and then the hack methods to no avail. (well, more, really over the past few weeks, but the two-day immersion has me totally fried.)
i'm reached the point where time is extremely critical. once i get this out in an acceptable form, i can spend more time on the learning curve.
I am using a script I found on a jQuery board [URL] and it works for them, but not for me because my syntax is probably wrong. And they also are just using 1 field and not near-unlimited dynamically loading fields like I am.How would I add in a fix to have the browser 'only' use the expansion if the user is using IE6 or IE7?

I have to open a new window when user closes the browser window. But the problem is that on browser close unload event calls and the same event is called with we refresh the page. So it is opening the popup window on both window close and window refresh.
I have some very strange problem on the Mac (OS-X) with the Safari browser 1.0 (v85). Some information in my form was not filled in... after I turned on debugging and checked the console it displayed some error messages.
The messages displayed were like:
(event handler): value undefined (result of expression trim) is not object. Cannot be called.
I have no idea what this means!!! Does anyone know where to find the solution for this problem? The page works fine on Windows with IE (and probably some more browsers).
