some web pages do not come out right when using Firefox.


I use Mozilla Firefox 5 all the time.
But certain web pages do not show up right when using this browser.
For instance,
http://sxmislandtime.com
I get a large gray border with a large white middle and the text headlining the news is to the right of the page, half in the white section, but more than half on the gray so you can't read it.
I use Firefox and thatís what I see.
when I use IE, all the text for the stories is in the center white background and I can read the text.
so it seems it does not work right on Firefox.
There are other sites too that happens on. Also some sites seem to have text superimposed over pictures but when I use IE, that does not happen.
Does anyone know why this occurs and what I can do to correct it?
Thanks
B

Not my area of expertise, but FWIW the page displays perfectly in IE8 and Firefox 3.5.3 - latest update. Guess Firefox 5 is a typo?

sorry
yes, of course firefox 5 is a typo.

I am using 3.5.3
and you say that web site display perfectly in 3.5.3?
you can read the text? it's not to the right and half in the white background and half in the gray?
then why am I having that trouble? is there a setting or something I can change?

Doesn't render correctly in FF 3.5.2.
Here's why:
<meta name="generator" content="Joomla! 1.5 - Open Source Content Management" />
along with buggy javascripts used there.

It's not a FF issue, it's an issue caused by non-standard code/conflicting scripts.

Hi all,

I noticed that on the toolbar, for this site, to the far right is three A's that allow for a font size preference. If I change or set this for the large font, the text on the site shifts to the far right as you described. Try hitting the A's and downsizing on the font choice (small-or medium).

Alternatively try adjusting or resetting Firefox's own "zoom" setting to a smaller setting.

thnaks for the tips but none of that works. I do not get a page like Pete shows in his thumbnail. my text is all the way over to the right even if I decrease the font. but how do I change FF zoom setting? I will try that if I know how to do it.

OK, I think I figured it out. FF help says Some sites do not display properly with a minimum font size, so you should set minimum font size to none.
I did that and now the page displays properly. only problem now is when I go to some other sites, the font is so small I can barely read it, since my vision is not so good.
now what?
Maybe I can't have it both ways?

Image zoom in Firefox. This works for me in Firefox 2 and ver 3.5.2. Don't know about ver 3.5.3

Hold down the CTL key and press the plus key (+) to zoom in. Hold down the CTL key and press the minus (-) key to zoom out. It also works for me to hold down the CTL key and use the scroll wheel on your mouse to zoom in and out.

I'm curious what you have for your settings in Firefox >"options">content tab>"fonts and colors category including the settings noted when you click the "advanced button".

For example mine is:
Default font "Times New Roman" size 16

click on the advanced button and settings are:

Fonts For: Western
Proportional: Serif
Serif: Times New Roman size 16
Sans-Serif: Arial
Monospace: Courier New size 13
Minimum font size None
A check is in "allow webpages to choose their own fonts"
Default character encoding Western (iso 8859-1)

If you have fiddled with this, in the past, you may have caused more aggravation for yourself than relief.

----------------
You have no menubar>view>zoom>reset?

mouse Shortcuts should work as relayed earlier by Gordan:
control/+ increases
control/- decreases
control/0 resets

or hold the control key down and use the scroll button on mouse.

you might want to try the NoSquint add-on. NoSquint allows you to adjust the text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels as well as color settings both globally (for all sites) and per site.
