Hello

I have two templates that look okay in Chrome (windows), but in Firefox they fill the screen quite differently.

In my next comment I'll give you the links.

The css appears to be the same.  But obviously it is not the same.

Looking for a CSS expert to solve the mystery!

Thanks

Okay!

Here's the two links.  Again they look ok in Chrome, but in Firefox (windows) there is a considerable difference in Firefox.  BTW my computer's screen resolution is 1600 x 900.

appears not as wide on the screen in Firefox
Appears "wider" in firefox

It appears that the width is controlled by container-fluid inner   But I think other issues may come into play here.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

they look the same to me. though i can only look at the windows FF version in browserstack, and the window size option only goes up to 1280 wide.

Hmmm.....   I will look at it in browserstack.

But the issue was pointed out to me by someone at the university -- and we saw that issue on his firefox browser there.

And see it on my local laptop.  Windows 8.1 Hmmmmm....

I'll check browserstack a little later on.

Thanks Kyle!  

I'll also do a screen shot on my local computer, etc.

Looks like someone pressed Ctrl+ on one of the examples.
That page is zoomed. Either by accident (holding Ctrl while playing with the mouse wheel) or trying to read it better.

Restore the zoom to 100% and it will look the same as Chrome.

HTH,
Dan

Hmmm.....

Is there a css or Javascript command that will force browser to 100 percent zoom?

Don't think so. You (or someone else) manually zoomed in. It's an accessibility helper.

If you could undo that programatically, then the people who need to zoom in to read your page would be pretty upset...

Just press Ctrl- until the zoom is at 100%

Hi Dan,

This is very funny.  I've gone nuts trying to figure out why this was happening.  I've looked at the code, removed the background image etc

And the "solution" was indeed just the zoom.  Which explains why I have had problems trying to recreate the problem.  It was so inconsistent.

Indeed Ctrl - got me to 100% zoom and all pages look the same.

Thanks to you and Experts Exchange for resolving this!
