Please see photo attached. When viewing in IE9, there are no borders around the "upload file" elements or the "browse" buttons.

Can we have a link to the page Troy? Or the .fb file?

Sure.... http://www.localdogrescue.com/surrender.html

Looks fine in Firefox. Yet another reason to *cough* love IE...

You should see it in Chrome... lol

Try adding display: inline; into this ID selector. :P It may help.

#docContainer .fb-button input {
color: #777777;
display: inline;
font-family: Tahoma,Geneva,sans-serif;

No luck, that didn't work. I can't get the font in IE to appear as Tahoma either despite having changed every instance of it I can find. Does it look worse in Chrome?

*** The curiosity got the best of me so I installed Chrome. That is a little bass-ackwards, isn't it... lol But at least the buttons appear.

To be honest... I like the way it looks in IE better than FireFox and Chrome! I could try and help but I would need the .fb file so I can do the testing live. Instead of trying to guess. lol

I almost do prefer the IE look also, ideally would like a light border around the buttons and fields like the rest of the elements on the page as opposed to the old clunky looking boxes. I'll be tweaking the css borders and whatnot a little later in the day.

You can get the .fb file @ my domain/ldr-form.zip (if you can let me know when you get it so I can remove from server).

Thanks.

Got it. I will play around with it and see what I can do. :D

This fixes the issue... And should have no effect on Firefox...

Line 475 add border rule. :P
#docContainer .fb-button input { color: #777; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, Sans-serif; border:solid 1px;}

That produces a.... unique look to the boxes in IE9...lol. I used the following css, it produces the look as seen in the attached image. I kind of like the 'Chrome' look..

#docContainer .fb-button input {
color:#777;
border: 1px solid rgb(158, 158, 158);
-webkit-border-radius: 5px;
-moz-border-radius: 5px;
border-radius: 5px;
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;
}
