With the last couple of Firefox updates including 33.0, 33.01, 33.02 my lists have changed from discs to numbered.

CSS says

li { list-style-position: outside; margin-left: -1em;
line-height: 120%;
list-style-type:disk;
}

This works for old versions of Firefox, and current versions of Chrome and ME, but not for current Firefox.

Also, any suggestions about where would be a better place to post this?

thanks

Silly question perhaps, but have you tried if the proper "disc" spelling works?

Thanks Frenzie, that is what solved it.

Amazing that for at least 3 years it worked with Firefox, and it still works with IE and Chrome spelled the other way.

Thanks again!

I'd bet the misspelling was supported because of IE. Chrome tends to support weird IE-specific code that Firefox does not as it's a little more strict with CSS and HTML.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

It only works as "disc" in Opera/Presto, even in quirks mode.

This is for an unordered list (<ul>), right? It is highly illogical (IMHO) to default an unordered list to arabic numbering when there is an invalid list-style-type. It should default to a disc, right? Someone should file a bug on this...

As far as I can tell an unordered list simply defaults to disc when an invalid list-style-type is given.
