Port FF not reading some CSS

I've tried with a few browsers:
Opera
FireFox (standard)
Internet Explorer (that horrible thing...)

All work fine reading "visited" CSS colour links.

Example:
body a:hover {
color: #FFF; text-decoration: none;
}
^^ That works fine

body a:visited {
color: #112233; text-decoration: none;
}
^^ Portable FireFox doesn't read this, or atleast not on any of the pages I've tried, whereas standard FireFox does, don't supose anyone could enlighten me on this predicament could they?

This definitely should not happen

That is valid CSS.
Could be an extension. Get a virgin copy of FFP. (almost called it PFF)

Probably not a CSS problem

I don't think this is a CSS problem per se. I've seen the same behavior (visited links don't change color) but always assumed it was because history was disabled. If others are seeing this work if FFP then there's something wrong with my install. I tried disabling all extensions, but that didn't change anything. I'll have to play around some more.

Works just fine for me in FFP. But I have history enabled. You know, I never thought of it, but that makes sense. Firefox works differently from IE in this area: if history "days to keep" is set to zero in Explorer, that browser will still keep a history for the current session and just clear it on exit. Firefox doesn't even do that if history is set to zero, so it has no way of telling if a link has been visited.

Why I didn't think of that sooner is completely beyond me.

Okay, number one, Firefox Portable contains an unmodified copy of Mozilla Firefox, so there's no reason something would work on a local copy and not in FFP. The only thing I can think of is what rmccue suggested: an extension is causing the problem.

Tried all the above. Try it

Tried all the above.

Try it yourself, it doesn't work, I have no added extensions or anything, standard FireFox works fine, its just PortableFF for some reason.

If its unmodded at all, then I have no idea whats causing it, just try it yourself, you'll see what I mean...

Just was annoying me thats all, just thought I'd post it, wondered if other people had encountered the same thing.

Let me just make sure of something... are your local version of Firefox and FFP/PFF the same version? You should never do an experiment with more than one variable, or your observations will be misleading. Smile

Edit: Just tested it on my copy of FFP, and it works. I tried using both an external CSS file and embedded CSS. Both worked as expected.
