FontAwesome element too large?

On http://live.clars.com/m/ I copied over the header from http://www.clarstestsite.com.php54-3.dfw1-2.websitetestlink.com/

For some reason the elements "#navigation ul.nav > li a" on the former are wider than on he latter design, but when I check the styles everything seems to be exactly the same.

I think I've narrowed it down to the "#navigation ul.nav li.parent > a:after" element which appears larger on the former than it does on the latter, even though when I check the computed styles in chrome developer tools they both have the exact same parameters as far as I can tell.

What am I missing?

If you mean the the menu at the very top, they are exactly the same size but in a slightly different position.

Nothing as far as I can tell.  I don't think you're finished with the 'new' version.  One has a scroll bar and the other doesn't and that makes the position shift slightly between the two.

That's just because one has more content. If you want to have a better comparison you can use

There are very slight differences but nothing I would worry about.

Then you may never finish the new version.  Work on something that makes a difference, that doesn't.

Can I subtract points for replies that do nothing but cost me time?

You started out by asking a question about a problem that didn't actually exist.   And now you want to punish me for wasting my time?  I suppose you can file a complaint about me if you want to.

The problem does exist and still exists and you yourself acknowledged it in comment 40554299. But what's worse is that you're now wasting even more of my time with useless comments.
