Wordpress site won't load menu correctly

We developed a website 18 months ago, and all of a sudden people are saying the menus don't look right.    Everything I check on multiple browsers and machines looks fine.  (See Pic 1).  

However, on some internal machines it looks like Pic 2 (only first menu is loading).  

Then they said on an external Mac machine it looks like Pic 3.  (last menu Contact Us isn't loading)

Why is it doing this???  

Here is the site.  www.7thwavelabs.com

Thanks!

Using a Mac and Chrome, I indeed see the issue mentioned or shown in pic3...

If I play around with following:

#header ul.menu {
clear: both;
float: left;
margin: 19px 0 0 4px;
height: 31px;
}

Open in new window


Which is in style.css:163

The menu shows up normally, the contact menu gets pushed under the main picture/slider, so something changed apparently ...

It ended up being a padding issue.  Thanks for your advice though.

Once we fixed the Padding, their internal machines don't load the menu.  The rollover is off by one.  I looked at it for over an hour, and can't find why.  

Pic1 is from the users machines.
Pic 2 is from my machine and others that work correctly.

I noticed that their tab also says "Waiting"

I can't speak for the menu glitch yet, but for me the menu is still not fixed (Mac with Chrome), if I change following setting in the css I mentioned above;

margin: 19px 0 0 4px; to margin: 19px 0 0 1px;

Then I can see the full menu... So yes, it was padding ... But I still see the issue?

If I change the left from 4px to 1px, then on IE it hangs out to the left.  Again, thanks for your help.  I am an Access programmer, not a web programmer. So, I am can't figure it out.

I wanted to mention that Firefox on Mac doesn't show this menu issue ... I'll see if something else sticks out.

Thanks spravtek.  Actually I changed the Padding on the buttons, which fixed it.  Which was like your suggestion, expect yours made the menu hang out to the left.  However, you guided me in the right direction!
