I'm trying to animate only the top-padding. but Firefox (and codekit and webstorm) don't like the dash in padding-top. so how would i do that?


TweenLite.to("#secondrow", 1, {padding-top:"50px"});


TweenLite.to("#secondrow", 1, {css:{padding-top:50}});

neither work.

It's easy to overlook this, but when using CSSPlugin you need to use the camelCase version of the CSS property as required by Javascript. In this case you want to animate paddingTop, so:

TweenLite.to("#secondrow", 1, {paddingTop:"50px"});

From the CSSPlugin API:
Note: a common mistake is to forget to use camel case representations of the properties, so instead of "font-size", you'd use "fontSize". "background-color" would be "backgroundColor".
I'm not sure how thorough this is, but here's a list of CSS properties in Javascript
