I try to make an svg file with GSAP embedded.


It works with chrome but in mozilla i have an error NS_ERROR_FAILURE on gsap code. 


How i could resolve it ?

Make sure you're not trying to animate (or set) properties on an SVG element that isn't in the DOM yet or has display:none because Firefox burps. That's not a GSAP issue - it's just a Firefox quirk with SVGs.

Thanks Jack,


'display:none' is really the problem with Firefox.

It works in IE, Chrome and Opera.


I will modify my code to no use display at all.

To add my two cents ;)


This is definitely a Firefox OCD thing. Firefox is real strict with SVG elements having CSS display:none property like Jack advised above. Since the Firefox rendering engine will remove anything that has a CSS style of display:none  from the rendering tree. See SVG display.


if you need to control the display on your SVG elements then use the SVG visibility attribute or its css equivalent visibility: hidden

SVG display: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/display

SVG visibility attribute: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Attribute/visibility
