I apologize if this is the wrong section, support just seems appropriate.

I launched a website earlier this year that worked in all web browsers, but it seems like it doesn't work properly with Firefox anymore.

This is my website:
http://codeharris.com

I wanted to try something very different with a website, so it has all sorts of things happening in it.

The problem is the website doesn't center the main stream horizontally, it stays fixed. It will work correctly in any other browser.
You also can't scroll the website with the mouse wheel, but that's less concerning.

If anyone knows any possible reasons why this is only happening with Firefox, I'd love to know.
It might not have worked with Firefox at launch, but I'm sure I tested it for every browser.

Thank you.

I think you mean vertically?

Also does not work in IE9. Does it work anywhere?

Maybe something to do with this?

#work .sliders{
position:absolute;
left:520px;
top:220px;
width:430px;
height:300px;
}

It's also certainly possible that Firefox really doesn't like dealing with a 10,000 px wide image.

And of course, please don't force users to horizontally scroll. It's painful, unpredictable, and annoying. You wouldn't expect to turn the steering wheel in your care and have it speed up would you?

I saw this posted over at SUMO a few weeks ago, but I can't find the thread.

The intention is a wiiiiiide page, that on my monitor would be 12 or so monitors in width. I simply don't see the point in creating a web page like that. Then again I am well into my 7th decade and have trouble seeing new concepts.

The validator just loves it - http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http: ... arris.com/

I attempted changing that bit actually, it doesn't seem to like anything I put in there.

And perhaps, I could try making the image width smaller and test if Firefox is upset over it, but I highly doubt it.

Many people have horizontal websites, I've never had a problem with it, and people don't seem to mind it either. It's incredibly easy to navigate.

Like I said I wanted to try something different, and not be in the sea of people who do the exact same thing

Thanks Ed, I actually haven't run it through a validator, that helps me a lot.

Weird, because I see a sea of people trying horizontal layout because it's currently popular and i've yet to see a single website where it's intuitive or appropriate. Your site for instance if you hadn't mentioned horizontal scrolling I would have just assumed the whole site was just broken because there's absolutely no indication that it should scroll.
