As @mentosgum mentioned, that exercise has a known bug with Firefox. You have two workaround options.

5/21 - Firefox gives Oops! try again with no other details.

  • Workaround 1: use a different browser.
  • Workaround 2: remove all of your code and leave only the style tags. You will need to replace your code on the next lesson.

I'm getting the same 'Oops' bug, using Windows 10 & Microsoft Edge.
Thanks for these instructions. I think they'll get me past this obstacle.


#5

Thanks for letting me know about that. I haven't had a chance to try that combination yet.

@albionsrefuge Workaround 2 works for me!
Good luck. xx


#7

Are you using Edge then?

I just delete all in that page, and only write:

style>
/style>

with respectives <

And send it. Of course I save all that I've done already in a notepad to paste it again afater send it. I don't know if I explain properly :confused: But it works for me, now Im stuck in to the ''Bright Buttons''.. This:

input[type="submit"] {
background: limegreen;
color: black;
}

I think is something wrong in my code or firefox :stuck_out_tongue:
