CSS, undesired line break

Please take a look at www.prowodev.com/links/q.html. You'll notice in the top left corner, there is a ticker that changes every few seconds. If you refresh the page and look closely at the ticker, you'll see that when that when the first one slides to the right, it breaks into two lines. It seems to only happen the first time; when it comes around again, it doesn't happen. You have to look closely to catch it. I've attached a screenshot to show you what it looks like. Any thoughts as to why this is happening? I've tried adding an explicit width (700px) but that didn't help. Thanks in advance for your help!

Not sure as there is some js setting the width initially, you could add this to override it, unless I can find the js responsible

#views_slideshow_cycle_teaser_section_top_ticker-block {
    width:100% !important
}

That seems to have done the trick! Thanks!

I think I spoke too early... Is there any way to re-open this question? The line break is still happening when the ticker gets to it's right-most point (again, only on the first time). You have to refresh to see it happen each time. Can this question be re-opened?

Ok. That seemed to break a lot of other alignments terribly. I had to back out the code, but here is a link to a screenshot of the results: www.prowodev.com/links/image001.png.

To make sure I'm doing the right thing, do I add that along with the previous code? So do I add both:

#views_slideshow_cycle_teaser_section_top_ticker-block > div {
    width: 100% !important;
}

Open in new window


AND

.views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame.views_slideshow_cycle_teaser_section > div {
    width: 100% !important;
}

Open in new window

No don't use
.views-slideshow-cycle-main-frame.views_slideshow_cycle_teaser_section > div {
    width: 100% !important;
}


The new one is more specific to the ticker box.
