I have several sites where the 800 pixel fixed width content floats off-center to the left in the browser window. The page-content is in the middle of 3 overall layout columns with the left and right columns as width="x%" so the page-content will float with a bias to the left in the window.
This all works fine in IE because it reads all 3 layout columns before it starts writing to screen - so it positions the center page-content column in the correct place.
In Firefox the content columns starts by loading on the right side of the window and then jumps to the correct position after the 3rd column is read.
Is there a way to float a page-content column with a bias to the left in Firefox. The left column can't be a fixed width because the content must shift to the left to fit in 800 Pixel Windows. Is there a function of some type to keep firefox from displaying the page before it knows what the page layout is ?
