one is without the "www", go there and then click the header and you'll see what I'm talking about.  Not sure what is happening - but appears firefox zooms in some.

This is with firefox only, I believe on XP and win2000 both - haven't tried vista or 7.


PS: Please ignore the table layout - as hard as it may be to do so! :)

    Hello, I have firefox which is fully up to date.

    It seems to work fine for me.

    I would try removing any cookies linked to that website and make sure firefox is fully up to date. Worst case, try reinstalling firefox or another web browser.

    Are you on windows?  It did the same thing to me on two different pcs.  One xp one 2000.  It really isn't a big deal, but I hate not knowing what is happening.  Firefox actually updated itself this morning.  No change.

    Everything looks good on my end. No text enlargement when banner is clicked or by default.

    I give up - not sure what the problem is/was?  I managed to stop it from happening, by going there and clicking the header then in firefox - went to view, zoom, and hit reset - which it did?

    Now it seems to work, may be if I close firefox it will do it again.  Regardless seems like a configuration or option in firefox to blame.  Or user error!

    Hi Dan, thank you for the points reward.

    I think when you reset the zoom in firefox, it restarted that cookie that it saved for your website. Or maybe is something wrong with the settings that you normally use.

    I was using Win Xp and tried on win vista and server 2008, all worked fine.

    Really appreciate the follow-up.  I couldn't really figure out what happened, but it was settings for sure.  It isn't doing it anymore.  I think your right that it was just my settings or a cookie from previous visit.  

    Thanks Again!
