[Pro] Firefox issues?

Is anyone reporting display issues with Firefox? My site is fine with the latest versions of Safari and Chrome, but on the latest version of Firefox most of the pages are, to use the technical term, catawampus ; )

This isn’t specifically a FF issue - it is a construction issue.

Your site is constructed using a mix of Divs (layered items) and Table based items.

What you are seeing is different browsers rendering text at different sizes. This causes some of your text boxes to expand and overlap.

You can see this in Safari - go to the View menu and Enable ‘Zoom Text Only’ then while viewing your page(s) use Apple+ to increase the text size by a couple of notches - what happens to your layout?

To fix: First update to the latest version of FW 5.6.1 (not essential but it doesn’t cost anything) then go through your pages and make sure that all your items are layered. (Green bounding box) - if you select each item in turn and look in the item inspector there is a tick box to enable/disable layers.

Then apply the RPL action to your pages (Relative page Layout) and test.

An alternative is to make your pages with all Table based items - these cannot occupy the same space as others and will push each other around when you resize text.

And there is also the third option of using an inline construction - sometimes referred to as the ‘Box Model’
