How do I need to edit the style.css so the top banner on this page looks aligned properly in Firefox?

Right now, it looks fine in Chrome.

 View in Firefox - top right isn't aligned View in Chrome - to right aligns properly

Why would my Firefox show it differently?  What setting should I check?

Try deleting your cache. CTRL + SHFT + DELETE while in Firefox.

It is possible it is holding an old CSS cache.

After deleting the cache & upgrading to Firefox 4, I still have the same problem.  IE and Chrome look good.

I am working in Wordpress.
Here are the header.php and style.css files:

Thanks. Could you also load your page in firefox, right click and hit view source, then copy all of that and post it as well.

Thanks.

Also, are you using any type of cache plugin for Wordpress? Like WP-Cache?

<p><a href="http://www.transitionagingparents.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/man-woman-kissing.png" ><img class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-1709" title="man woman kissing" src="http://www.transitionagingparents.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/man-woman-kissing-150x150.png" alt="man woman kissing" width="150" height="150" /></a>It seems that Alzheimer&#8217;s is being talked about in every form of the media.  While the news is sobering, it&#8217;s very important that we confront reality and educate/prepare ourselves as caregivers to aging parents<em><span style="text-decoration: underline;"> and</span></em> as aging boomers.</p>

<p>If you&#8217;re are not being personally impacted by this disease, a natural reaction is to turn a deaf ear and ignore the whole issue.  Don&#8217;t!  The statistics are too compelling.  An estimated 10 million Baby Boomers (one out of every eight) will develop Alzheimer&#8217;s.  <strong>Most of America&#8217;s Baby Boomers will spend their retirement years either with Alzheimer&#8217;s or caring for someone who has it. </strong></p>
<p>Today, I want to highlight  a new report by the Alzheimer&#8217;s Assocation, <em>&#8220;Generation Alzheimer&#8217;s: The Defining Disease of the Baby Boomer&#8221;</em> and also the Larry King special that will air this evening at 8am,<em> &#8220;Unthinkable: The Alzheimer&#8217;s Epidemic.</em>&#8220;  Both the report and the Special can do much to raise awareness, educate us and call us to action against this devastating disease.</p>

<p>Let&#8217;s look at the<em> &#8220;Generation Alzheimer&#8217;s&#8221;</em> report first.  According to the new Alzheimer’s Association report, <a href="http://alz.org/boomers/popup.asp" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','alz.org']);" target="_blank"><em>&#8220;Generation Alzheimer’s</em>,</a>&#8221;  it is expected that 10 million baby boomers will either die with or  from Alzheimer’s, the only cause of death among the top 10 in America  <em><span style="text-decoration: underline;">without</span></em> a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression<span style="text-decoration: underline;">.</span> But, while  Alzheimer’s kills, it does so only after taking everything away, slowly  stripping an individual’s autonomy and independence. Even beyond the  cruel impact Alzheimer&#8217;s has on the individuals with the disease, <a href="http://alz.org/boomers/popup.asp" onclick="javascript:_gaq.push(['_trackEvent','outbound-article','alz.org']);" target="_blank"><em>Generation Alzheimer’s</em></a> also details the negative cascading effects the disease places on  millions of caregivers. Caregivers and families go through the agony of  losing a loved one twice: first to the ravaging effects of the disease  and then, ultimately, to actual death.</p>

<p>While modern science and medicine has made great advances in research and treatment of heart disease and cancer&#8230;that is extending longevity.  Unfortunately, there is a terrible risk associated with longer life.  We now have a growing elderly population at risk for Alzheimer&#8217;s and other dementias.  Of those who reach the age of 85, nearly one in two will get Alzheimer&#8217;s.  The sad reality is that although Alzheimer&#8217;s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the US, there is inadequate funding for research and for that elusive cure.</p>
<p>One of the most stunning points of this report for me is this, <em>&#8220;For every $100 the government spends on Alzheimer research, it spends more than $25,000 for care for people with Alzheimer&#8217;s and other dementias.</em>&#8221;</p>
<p><strong>What can you do?</strong> Reach out to your elected officials for increased funding for research to find a cure.  Remind them of how this devastating disease is affecting your loved ones. Sharing your personal story will put a human face to this terrible disease.  This country had made enormous progress in the fight against cancer, heart disease and HIV.  We can do the same with Alzheimer&#8217;s!</p>

<p>On to to Larry King&#8217;s Special this evening.  I hope you&#8217;ll be able to watch it live or later online.  In it, Larry will be joined by people who have been touched by Alzheimer’s  disease.  Either he or a guest will undergo a brain scan to detect Alzheimers; and the Special will highlight the 3 new stages of Alzheimer&#8217;s.</p>
<p>In Larry&#8217;s preview interview, he shares this staggering statistic.  By the year 2050, 100 million people are projected to have Alzheimer&#8217;s.  Larry makes a simple but profound statement, Alzheimer&#8217;s is a <em>&#8220;life of no memories.&#8221;</em></p>

<p><a href="http://www.transitionagingparents.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/kus021711001011.jpg" ><img class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-1701" title="kus021711001011" src="http://www.transitionagingparents.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/kus021711001011-150x150.jpg" alt="kus021711001011" width="150" height="150" /></a>I will never forget the experience of a colleague, &#8220;Mary&#8221;, as her mother (with dementia) continued to drive even after her children hid her car keys.  Mary&#8217;s mom would find yet another set of keys, get in her car, get lost and some stranger (finding her disoriented mother) would call Mary at work.  This happened several times before Mary finally sold her mother&#8217;s car.   What a confusing, upsetting and potentially dangerous time for Mary&#8217;s mother and her family.  I recall thinking at the time &#8211; I sure hope I never have to deal with this!</p>
<p>Let&#8217;s not just sit and hope we never have to face this dilemma.  Let&#8217;s not wait until our parents develop dementia or other aging issue that causes their driving to endanger the lives of themselves and others.  Let&#8217;s educate ourselves <span style="text-decoration: underline;">now</span>.  And, the good news is that there is a well-designed tool to help us do just that.  <em>&#8220;Beyond Driving with Dignity&#8221;</em> is a comprehensive resource designed to be used by families and their aging parents &#8220;together.&#8221;   Matt Gurwell (founder of &#8220;Keeping Us Safe&#8221; and formerly with the Ohio State Patrol) has done a terrific job researching the issues and challenges of seniors driving, and also of how to help seniors &#8220;retire&#8221; from driving, with dignity and with respect.</p>

<p>This workbook is more than a how-to guide.  First of all, it helps us (as adult children) to understand our underlying fears and concerns (both of our parents and ourselves.)  That puts all of us in a different, more empathetic frame of mind.   Then, Matt walks us through the various health concerns that can impact the elderly and their capacity to drive safely, including vision, hearing, memory, reflex and reaction time, medication, and more.  Each section is clearly laid out with an overview of the issue, a questionnaire for the family to complete and then a &#8220;list of concerns&#8221; to be completed.  As Matt shared in his recent interview on my radio show, it is important to filter out opinions and emotion, and focus on just the facts.</p>
<p>The second half of the workbook guides a family through an actual driving exercise with an aging parent.  A checklist is provided.  Readers are guided on how to assess driving concerns, and most importantly, guided through a simple but critical &#8220;risk reducing&#8221; decision process.  And, finally after the<em> conversation, assessment and observation</em>, then a family will know when it&#8217;s the right time (for the right reasons) to &#8220;limit driving, not limit living.&#8221;  The last section of the book provides a thorough discussion of how to find alternatives for transportation.  And, you won&#8217;t want to miss the poignant <em>&#8221; A Granddaughter&#8217;s Essay.&#8221;</em></p>

<p>I plan to share this important resource with my mother next month when she visits.  It&#8217;s a resource and a tool that I highly recommend to those with aging loved ones.</p>
