Website shifts when viewed in Firefox

http://www.vmrf.org/research-websites/gcf/indexbeta.html

When viewed in IE, the website works perfectly, you can click on any of the links and the table on the left stays put while the text on the right changes.  In Firefox however, links #4, #5, and #6 will shift the page over a little bit when you click on them.  I've checked my code and the tables are the same size so I don't know what gives.  Is this just a quirk with Firefox or can I edit my code to get this to work.

it's the scrollbar...in IE, the scrollbar ALWAYS shows...in Firefox, it only shows when it's needed.

so because your site in centered, when you click onto pages that don't have the scrollbar, the site shifts a few pixels to the right.

nothing you can do about it, just default firefox behaviour.

If you want to always show scrollbar in Firefox/Mozilla, try adding this tule to the CSS:

body { overflow: scroll; }

that actually puts a usable scrollbar...althought it goes the length of the window, and it puts a horizontal scrollbar as well.

i know i have played with this in the past and couldn't find a way to make Firefox mimic IE's behaviour...

I just added some blank space at the bottom of the pages that were moving so they would extend down and get that scroll bar to appear.
