check the script source to see if it is coded for FF

checked the script @ tjdoyles.com/Spr….js and it makes no comments about FF, it won't work in my FF either ....

it maybe cos FF uses a different engine and DW came out before FF did

the menu bar works in FF - thats no bother (well, mine anyway), just not the snow effect

waaaay old code.

Its doing a browser check to see if the user is on IE4 or Netscape 4, then running the appropriate JavaScript to show the snow. FF is neither of these, so it does nothing.

looking at it, I reckon changing the bit that says

else if (ie4up) {



to

else {



might just do it.

DW is fine for JS, but its better if you understand what the code is doing so when you're using someone else's you can see whats going wrong :thumbsup:

i prefer to "mostly" write my own than use them off a web design software ........ DW is fine but i prefer to write the code myself and know what its doing

also dw is a little outdated now ..... but still serves its purpose

Actually CS4 is very good, I've always used dreamweaver although I don't use half of the built in features or code snippets, I just love the code highlighting and the way CSS is handled, I've not found anything else I work better in to be honest!
