The forums and Firefox .93 (Windows)


Just wondering if anyone else noticed that the forums get a little elongated with firefox .93 on windows 2k. It Basically extends the forums (in the message and thread screens only, to about double the width.) Kind of a pain to read the threads. It also only appears this way when I am logged on. Anybody else seeing what I am?

Never faced that problem on FF903; I used to have that problem with Y!Mail and Mozilla 1.6 or earlier ...

Oh, with Windows, FF093 crashes with a kernel.dll error... anyway never cared.

Using Firefox 0.9.3 here on our Windows Terminal Server and can't duplicate this problem. That's even with the window not fully expanded.

The forum pages look perfect, but the post reply page is still wide. Is this a firefox windows problem, or just me?

ps. thanks for the adjustment. I feel so special!

Edit, and just for grins I tried it on IE as well, and the layout is fine.

I use firefox on both Windows and Linux. I haven't had any formatting problems on either OS.

The only time I've noticed problems with the width is when there is a post where the author includes a CODE block with a long string on a single line, forcing the width to accomodate it.

These forums look fine on my linux box under both konqueror and safari .93, and under all browsers on my Mac.

Could just be this pc.

Hmm, it's definitely not what I thought then. Is anyone else running into this?
