Well, let's start off with the fact splash-screens are a big "no-no" in the first place.


Anyway, if something renders right in IE and not FF, then chances are you're doing something wrong (since FF implements the current specifications better than IE, in cases where IE renders differently it's usually when it deviates from or breaks with the specification)


We'll need to see your code. I hope you're not using tables for layout.

I'm not fond of splash-screen either. The boss wants to preview the site to select clients (although the site isn't done yet), and therefor instructed me to put a splash screen befon the wedsite loads stating the site isn't officially live yet.


Code follows:


I call this js file from my main:


var splashpage=
splashenabled: 1,

splashpageurl: "SubPages/SplashPage.aspx",

enablefrequency: 0,

autohidetimer: 4,


browserdetectstr: (window.opera&&window.getSelection) || (!window.opera && window.XMLHttpRequest), //current browser detect string to limit the script to be run in (Opera9 and other "modern" browsers)


    document.write('<div id="slashpage" style="position: absolute; z-index: 100; color: white; background-color:white">')
    document.write('<iframe name="splashpage-iframe" src="about:blank" style="margin:0; padding:0; width:100%; height: 100%"></iframe>')
    this.standardbody=(document.compatMode=="CSS1Compat")? document.documentElement : document.body
    if (!/safari/i.test(navigator.userAgent))
    this.moveuptimer=setInterval("window.scrollTo(0,0)", 50)




    if (this.enablefrequency==1){ //if frequency control turned on
        if (/sessiononly/i.test(this.displayfrequency)){ //if session only control
            if (this.getCookie(this.cookiename[0]+"_s")==null){ //if session cookie is empty
                this.setCookie(this.cookiename[0]+"_s", "loaded")
        else if (/day/i.test(this.displayfrequency)){ //if persistence control in days
            if (this.getCookie(this.cookiename[0])==null || parseInt(this.getCookie(this.cookiename[0]))!=parseInt(this.displayfrequency)){ //if persistent cookie is empty or admin has changed number of days to persist from that of the stored value (meaning, reset it)
                this.setCookie(this.cookiename[0], parseInt(this.displayfrequency), parseInt(this.displayfrequency))
    else //else if enablefrequency is off
    if (this.launch){
        if (parseInt(this.autohidetimer)>0)
            setTimeout("splashpage.closeit()", parseInt(this.autohidetimer)*1000)


    var re=new RegExp(Name+"=[^;]+", "i"); //construct RE to search for target name/value pair
    if (document.cookie.match(re)) //if cookie found
        return document.cookie.match(re)[0].split("=")[1] //return its value
    return null


setCookie:function(name, value, days){
    var expireDate = new Date()
    //set "expstring" to either an explicit date (past or future)
    if (typeof days!="undefined"){ //if set persistent cookie
        var expstring=expireDate.setDate(expireDate.getDate()+parseInt(days))
        document.cookie = name+"="+value+"; expires="+expireDate.toGMTString()+"; "+splashpage.cookiename[1] //last portion sets cookie path
else //else if this is a session only cookie setting
    document.cookie = name+"="+value+"; "+splashpage.cookiename[1] //last portion sets cookie path


if (splashpage.browserdetectstr && splashpage.splashenabled==1)



The splash-page (SubPages/SplashPage.aspx), is just a simple form with a label stating the site is in test phase and not live and a countdown timer. (redirecting in...) (the timer just counts down, it doesn't redirect, because it's already done in this js file.


Thanks for the help! It is very much appreciated!
