Did anybody else notice the change in the look of the scramble view? now it's like this for me: [url=http://img411.imageshack.us/my.php?image=scramblerfirefoxgz5.png:1etbtzzw][img:1etbtzzw]http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/3858/scramblerfirefoxgz5.th.png[/img:1etbtzzw][/url:1etbtzzw] (firefox) [url=http://img411.imageshack.us/my.php?image=scramblervx3.png:1etbtzzw][img:1etbtzzw]http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/9315/scramblervx3.th.png[/img:1etbtzzw][/url:1etbtzzw] (internet explorer) it wasn't like that before...didn't have those squares in the grey part, as you can see in this video: [url:1etbtzzw]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYVAhxe20E8[/url:1etbtzzw] so, does it appear different to you?

Hi Pedro, Nothing was changed in this program recently. Maybe you updated your Firefox browser? Thanks, Ron

I have the latest version, 2.0.0.14 (there's a 3.x but it's still beta)...don't know why it changed

Yeah this is just a slight nuance in the way IE and firefox choose to handle table borders. IE will not put a border on empty table cells, while firefox will. I've had a few problems with this myself while generating tables. As Firefox is a relatively new browser, it probably tries to comply with W3C standards, while IE might draw on its own standards and try and generate the borders based on its own preference. This could be resolved easily by placing a border around individual images in the colored cells instead of the whole table. For example, changing border to 0 in: [code:17acwavu] s="<table border=1 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>"; [/code:17acwavu] on line 255, and adding a border=1 property to the <image> tag in: [code:17acwavu] s+="<td bgcolor="+colorList[colors[c]+1]+"><img src='http://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/scrambles/images/blank.gif' width=10 height=10><\/td>"; [/code:17acwavu] on line 263. As long as the scramble images themselves remain unaffected though, I dont think its too big of an issue :)
