firefox board layout problem, overlaying topic with right side menu

I just recently noticed in a board display, the right side menu overlays the topic lists.

This is with firefox 5 and 3.  When I maximize the window, no change.

Hi Dennis:

 

Yes, me too.  I believe it was yesterday (Aug 12) that I first noticed this using Firefox 5.0.1 [ which has been my browser of choice for years ].

 

Regards!

No problems with chrome, safari or IE8.

Chrome 13 - same problem, see attachment. It get better if you disable "Show folder icons for new posts and hot or read-only" in your profile (http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/user/myprofilepage/tab/user-preferences%3Adisplay) but does not fix it.

Hmm, I thought I checked chrome but perhaps it depends if you are actually logged in?

Indeed, it only exist as long as I'm logged in using Chrome (usually the first I do).

Same problem with firefox 6.

Though I have noticed that some boards are fine and others not.  Perhaps it has to do with the length of the tags, if someone writes a thesis?

Looks fixed for firefox 3.5.9.

 

And after I installed 6.0 on another laptop, that works too.

No fair.  I had to install 6.0, wait forever for the Microsoft .NET framework assistant Addon to hang, search the web to find Copy Plain Text that works on 6.0, etc...  ;-)

and 6.0

 

The world needs to know that I had posted this before Dennis edited his reply and added the 6.0 comment.  Trying to make me look bad again, Dennis?  I usually manage that all by myself, thankyou very much.

I see the problem on FF 6.0 on Windows 7.  Funny I guess I never noticed it before...or it never bothered me ;-)

Re: firefox board layout problem, overlaying topic with right side menu

I guess I should have been more specific.  I used to see it with FF 6.0 on Windoze XP.  I no longer do.

 

But you're right, it's not really upsetting - not when you consider all the other "features" of this wonderful, new platform.  That was sarcasm, by the way.

Unfortunately the fix may be worse than the previous problem since the window must be made larger or you have to move the bottom scrollbar:  :-(
