So I have checked my site and my CSS in tidy and w3 validators. All is fine and green.

Then I notice a little red ! icon in my Web Deveolper ToolBar when I wa on my newly remodeled pages. It was a CSS problem stating



CSS Error: Error in parsing value for property 'width'. Declaration Dropped.


That was the hover error. When I opened the console I found this one:



Expected ':' but found 'undefined'. Declaration dropped.


So that was weird and I have no ideas on those...

Then looking at page info box I clicked on the media tab and found my favicon, my Flash, and a none-icon.png.

The link was to "chrome://linkalert/skin/none-icon.png" which is weird in itself, but since I have an icon, it can't be a stand in... so where did it come from?

Some times I hate tools...

It sounds like a style set via script, or one hard coded inline, as opposed to one in an on page or external stylesheet.

Ya' gots a link to this?

I wouldn't worry about resources shown for the page, as long as it is displaying properly/as desired.

Yeah it happens Here (http://cleverwasteoftime.com) and also here (cleverwasteoftime.com/main.html) (Flash on both pages)

I have also seen it a lot over various other sites and the none-icon thing I think is a standard for the theme I am using as it is on every site... perhaps it is the fill in for when a site has no favicon?

Fixed broken bbcode link.

It's from the script swfobject.js. Which, as I imagine you know, is basically just one pretty long line of script code. I was able to track the error down to one of two spots in that code, it might even be caused by both of these spots working together, and only happens when you don't explicitly set the style and the script has to fend for itself in that area. It's only a warning though, so causes no real error.

You could replace it with this version:

Which 'looks before it leaps', but the editor may not be being faithful in rendering my changes due to the long line. Another way to avoid the 'error' is to explicitly set the style blank:


<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject("cwotNav.swf", "cwotNav", "550", "400", "8.0.0", "#323935");
so.setAttribute('style', '');
so.useExpressInstall('/scripts/expressinstall.swf');
so.addParam("quality", "best");
so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");
so.write("cwotNav");

</script>

I will test that out and see what I can come up with. Thanks John.
