[Pro] Page Sizing Problems

I have a peculiar problem with Firefox that I can’t figure out. Only Firefox so far as I can see. The primary site at

http://toolemera.com

and the subdomain at

http://shop.toolemera.com

are both set for the similar page widths, font sizes, etc. etc. Yet the shop site blows up to display larger in Firefox.

Any ideas why this is? I’ve checked settings in Firefox and in Freeway and I can’t find any reason other than there’s been an eclipse on Mars or something.

Thanks.

Weird!

The main site shows to be 1000px while the shop site is 900px in FF 3.0.10

And that is the problem. I see the shop as nearly 25% larger on the monitor than the main site. I can’t figure it out. This is an Apple Cinema display, a Mac Pro tower running 10.5.7, the latest Freeway Pro and yet I can’t debug why this is happening.

I hate it when things like this happen and I can’t figure it out.

On the plus side, Mal’s is working perfectly.

How about IE - how does it look there - have you tried with NetRenderer Moved

The problem has to lie within Firefox, or at least the version on my machine. I may have to dump the preferences, revert everything to defaults in the Pref settings and see what happens. Possibly a font conflict or who knows what? The two sites look proper when viewed in Safari, Opera and on a Windows machine with IE 7. IE 8 is weird in any world. It renders everything very strangely.

Have you tried changing the code to be “More Readable” for both sites. When I look at your Page Source I see that one is set to 900px and the other is set to 1000px. It’s something in your document that’s messed up. For instance in the first link your PageDiv which is essentially the width of your document view in Freeway you have it set to:

<div id="PageDiv" style="position:relative; min-height:100%; margin:auto; width:1000px">

but in the second link you have it:

<div id="PageDiv" style="position:relative; min-height:100%; margin:auto; width:900px">

I’d check your FW document and make sure your page-width setting is correct. Also, yeah as I said, change them both to “More Readable” on the output.

How many websites you see these days with “More Efficient” set? :slight_smile:

I changed the settings to More Readable. That one slipped through somehow. The primary entry, or gateway page is 900 while the content pages of the main site are 1000. The gateway acts as a portal of sorts to a developing set of subdomains.

I’ll just rebuild the Shop site from scratch. Copy out the content into new master pages. I think something is funny in the CSS somewhere that Firefox just doesn’t like.
