View Full Version : Mozilla Fade Issue

I think this is the right piece of code..

It fades in Safari and IE but not Mozilla... any ideas?

Thanks so much!

<script type="text/javascript">
var currentimage = null;

$('.jcarousel-skin-tango').addClass('gallery_demo'); // adds new class name to maintain degradability

history : true, // activates the history object for bookmarking, back-button etc.
clickNext : true, // helper for making the image clickable
insert : '#main_image', // the containing selector for our main image
onImage : function(image,caption,thumb) { // let's add some image effects for demonstration purposes

// fade in the image & caption
if(! ($.browser.mozilla && navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win")!=-1) ) { // FF/Win fades large images terribly slow

// fetch the thumbnail container
var _li = thumb.parents('li');

// fade out inactive thumbnail

// fade in active thumbnail

// add a title for the clickable image
image.attr('title','Next image >>');

onThumb : function(thumb) { // thumbnail effects goes here

// fetch the thumbnail container
var _li = thumb.parents('li');

// if thumbnail is active, fade all the way.
var _fadeTo = _li.is('.active') ? '1' : '0.3';

// fade in the thumbnail when finnished loading

// hover effects
function() { thumb.fadeTo('fast',1);},
function() { _li.not('.active').children('img').fadeTo('fast',0.3); } // don't fade out if the parent is active


scroll: 10,
initCallback: mycarousel_initCallback


function mycarousel_initCallback(carousel) {
jQuery('#main_image').bind('img_change',function() {
var num = parseInt((jQuery('.caption').text()).split(":",1)[0])-1;
return false;

Well, you have only provided the fade function that isn't for IE. To make it compatible with IE and other browsers, use this code:

.style.filter = "alpha(opacity = what amount of opacity when used in fading here)";

After your object on the page (Id) you want to fade - in the script area.

Sorry. This is a very vivid explanation, but I'm sure you could ask me for a better one, or some other programmer on DD will emphasize. I don't have the time right now. Sorry, again!

That doesn't appear to be the situation at all. This is a script that is using the jQuery script library. It would probably work in FF if FF (and all Mozilla based browsers) under Windows wasn't being specifically excluded:

if(! ($.browser.mozilla && navigator.appVersion.indexOf("Win")!=-1) ) { // FF/Win fades large images terribly slow

If you changed all that to simply:


and there aren't any other exclusions for FF/Mozilla that your code snippet doesn't show, it should work out. However, the comment (green) may still be accurate (FF/Win has improved in recent years though), so you might want to consider leaving the code alone and just living with it not working in FF/Mozilla under Windows.

Thanks so much for the help!

I'll give it a whirl and see how it works.

Much appreciated, as always!
