CSS Element

by JaaBlaze / December 12, 2007 1:53 AM PST

Greetings. Heres the problem. I am trying to create a element that is 450w and 300h, and the overflow will scroll. This works fine for Firefox, however IE is not recognizing this at all. here is the css:

#box .content {
height: 300px;
max-width: 450px;
color: #0054a6;
padding-top: 15px;
padding-left: 10px;
overflow: scroll;
display: block;

Can anyone help me out? I'm kinda a CSS noob so any help would be appreciated.

i figured it out. instead of setting it as a class, i made it its own div. Once i did this it worked fine. I guess IE has a problem reading the classes of Divs?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
