this is not working well on Firefox: display: inline-block; not recognized. Why?

I am not understanding Why this doesn't work

css/main.css
a {
  text-decoration: none;
}

#wrapper {
  max-width: 940px;
  margin: 0 auto;
}

#logo {
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0;
}

h1, h2 {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a {
  color: #fff;
}

nav a:hover {
  color: #32673f;
}

h1 {
  font-family: โ€˜Changa Oneโ€™, sans-serif;
  font-size: 1.75em;
  font-weight: normal;
}

img {
  max-width: 100%;
}

#gallery {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  list-style: none;
}

#gallery li {
  float: left;
  width: 45%;
  margin: 2.5%;
  background-color: #f5f5f5;
  color: #bdc3c7;
}

nav ul{
margin:0 10px 0 10px;
list-style-type: none;
padding: 0;
display: inline-block;
}

Karla,

My assumption is that you are trying to set the navigation's list items as inline-block? If so you'll want to add that declaration to the nav li selector instead of nav ul. It would look something like this...

nav ul {
  list-style: none;
  margin: 0 10px;
  padding: 0;
}

nav li {
  display: inline-block;
} 

If I'm off-base, please specify what the exact issue is you are encountering. Thanks!

I was thinking that Firefox was the problem. I had to create a new "nav li" instead of using "nav ul" with the display property "inline-block" and problem solved! Thank you :)
