Hello ayi, I see that you wrote:
position:absolute
well, I tested this and if you change that to position:fixed; it works fine, in my code I made a big green div to demonstrate the scrolling, here it is:

That should work (in Firefox at least).

Actually, it can't be done in a way that works on all browsers, screen resolutions, and window sizes.

The internet is not designed to look like a Windows program. There is no provision for using either the window size or footers. The web is NOT intended to be used in this manner.

What is causing this sudden demand for footers on web pages?

They have never been possible in a browser-independent manner. All of the tricks used to try to get this fail on at least one browser.

thank you

i change from absolute to fixed and it works perfect
