8. Error msg: Set the border-bottom to '1px solid #dbdbdb'

Usually this message appears when your web browser’s zoom setting is something other than 100%.

Why? : When you increase/decrease your zoom you also increase/decrease the size of elements on your page. So a 1px line might now be 3px.

What to do? : Often, resetting zoom to default will do the trick. You can reset it with cmd-0 (Mac) or ctrl-0 (PC).

You may need to experiment to get it right with your browser:

  • Some people have reported that Firefox likes 80% zoom to give the right answer.
  • “I’m on Firefox and a Surface Pro 3; the resolution is so high that they shift the default zoom (ctrl-0) to improve readability. Ctrl+(-) ×3 “fixed” it.”
  • in Safari, uncheck never use a font size smaller than… ( thanks jrjinaustin )
  • I set to 67% zoom on firefox after experimenting for awhile & it finally worked. (thanks @sheilacm)

Never mind. Chrome set’s it to 90% if you choose standard.
it’s fixed.

Thank you very much :slight_smile:


I had the same problem but it was solved when I changed the browser.

I changed from Firefox to IE and worked fine,


Thanks for this post. I was getting frustrated. But this finally worked for me.


I got stuck at Mozilla and Google Chrome set me free.

switched over to MS edge browser and it worked for me. Thanks for all the advice guys.

Thanks. It was really troubling me. I had to set to 67%.

Thank you!! @albionsrefuge
