I have been experimenting with displaying a popup window when a button is clicked on my Firefox extension's toolbar.

My popup is a panel with an iframe inside it that displays the actual content. No matter what attributes I set to my panel and iframe there is always an ugly border between my content and the edge of the popup window. I have tried changing my iframe attributes like: frameborder, seamless, marginheight, marginwidth etc. but these seem to have no affect on the window.

Does anybody have any ideas on how to remove this border?

If you fight this problem for Firefox, specifically, it can be a waste of time: what to do with all other Web browsers your users may use?

Consider one the the good alternatives, both based on jQuery which I highly recommend. See:[^],[^],[^].[^],

First concept is the modal popup. Please see:[^],[^],[^].

Another one if the dialog:[^].

See also a set of solutions using both concepts:[^].

Thanks for the links. I'll have a look through those and see if they can help me.

To answer your question, the pop up is from a Firefox extension toolbar, and not a web page, so I am not worried about other web browsers in this case.
