Please see attachments and source code.
I have TAB navigation sample which works perfect, however when I shrink window size, I would like to make sure that TABs are getting under each other automatically if there is not enough room and ont staying outside of the firefox window see second attachment.

What do I need to change in the CSS.

Thank you

in that case you'll need to remove the static width off of #nav to make it collapse. You'll need to generate the background color another way...an absolutely positioned div would do it.
