Bug report (1/25)


#1

I'm on CSS Positioning 1/25 titled "See it to believe it"

Mission objective: use the universal selector to draw a 1px dashed border of hex color #0000FF around every HTML element.

My code: * {
border: 1px dashed #0000FF;
}

Error message; "Oops, try again. It looks your border-width isn't 1px."

Note: I see a working, blue 1px border around every element in the preview panel.

I've also tried
* {
border-width: 1px;
border-style:dashed;
border-color:#0000FF;
}
This also displays the working border around all of the HTML elements in the preview panel, but I get the same error message of "Oops, try again. It looks like your border-width isn't 1px."

@leafaki,

As is stated in
https://www.codecademy.com/forum_questions/51e05de9631fe9439e0002b8

++++ reset of session *****************
under certain circumstances you can shoot your Browser in an
inconsistent state.

Therefor it is of an advantage to know that you have 2 reset facilities:

One is the use of the F5-key which does a refresh Browser

and

Two, select&copy your code
Then use the Reset Code button of the course-window,
then paste your code back in.

Addendum
General Notes:
Always refresh the browser after making corrections:
CTRL f5 ( if on Windows or Linux)
CMD r ( if on a MAC).
CTRL 0 to reset browser zoom

Thank you for your reply. I tried F5 and I tried resetting the code but the only answer that has fixed the issue for me is switching from Opera Browser, which had been working all day, back to Google Chrome.

I tried both of your methods, and they both didn't work. I also tried switching to three different browsers (Microsoft Edge, Firefox, and Chrome) and still nothing. My code is also the same as leafaki.
