It is still working in IE. I have looked at the timer code and can't see anything wrong there (and there hasn't been much change since 1.4). Someone with more knowledge of dynamic positioning and firefox has to take a look at this.
From Gustav Delius (gwd2 at york.ac.uk) Friday, 16 September 2005, 04:34 PM:
I assume this is because absolute positioning (which is used to position the timer div) is not really absolute but relative to the parent element. Now that the page structure has become more complex, perhaps firefox has a different idea of what the parent element is from IE. Anyway, this is too complicated for me.

The workaround for the moment is to define elements static to give them a fixed position on the screen. FF does and IE does not accept fixed. IE still uses the JS.
For the timer three DIVs would be adequate. There is no need for that many tables with hardcoded style and layout. Gustav, will you rework the timer or shall I investigate?

Thank you Urs! Unfortunately I am horribly overloaded with work at the moment, so any improvement that you can make to the quiz module code will be very welcome.

Hi, Urs, is this fixed in 1.5 and 1.6? If so we can close this bug.
From Urs Hunkler (u.hunkler at elearningkontor.de) Monday, 31 October 2005, 04:30 PM:
I changed the timer once more to make it work the same in FF, MSIE, Opera and Safari. Because there were no complaints I close the bug.
