Viewing PCA in Firefox browser - odd format!

  CurlyWhirly 22:38 28 Oct 2005

When I logged on to PCA this morning everything was okay but since logging in after my work shift I now see the PCA forum in a strange format!

I *can* alter the magnification settings by pressing the CTRL key and turning the mouse wheel in which case I get the extreme views as in my 2 screenshots below:

click here

The Home Page looks like this:

click here

In the Home Page screenshot, notice how long the web page is by looking at the scroll bar on the right!
Is anyone else having this problem using Firefox?

As I said above, everything was okay this morning ;0(

No - I see click here

Mmm. Thanks for that VoG.
I *did* see your screenshot in the other thread but thought it better to start this thread rather than take that one OFF topic!

I may have t uninstall Firefox and reinstall it again to see if that fixes the problem as I can't view it like that as it's too much scrolling of the page.

Using Firefox, as VoG™'s screenshot, I just find the whole page presentation very dull and boring.

It may well be boring but Firefox is my main browser now due to continual security setting alerts and active X problems meaning that I can't download some files or view some online videos.

When I log off tonight I will reinstall Firefox and see if that solves the problem ;0)

p.s. the strange thing is that I *only* get this problem when viewing PCA as all other sites display correctly.

Finally before I log off for the night does anyone else get this format on the PCA Home Page?

I meant this page was dull and boring regardless if you are using F/F or IE or any other browser, it was a general remark and not a criticism!

CW, it looks fine here with FF.

A couple of things you could try, open FF and click on Tools > Options > Advanced and in the Browsing section put a tick in "Resize large images to fit in the browser window". Secondly, again in FF, type about:config in the address bar and type font in the filter field. Look through the entries and if any aren't set to default in the status column, right click the entry and select "Reset" to return it to it's default value.

CW, just a reminder. If you do have to totally remove FF, as well as using Add/Remove, delete both the FF folder in the Programs directory and your config folder, normally found at C:\Documents and Settings\"Login Name"\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\"random string".default

HTH mate, dagwoood.

No problem ;0)

It's just that I prefer Firefox now after having used it extensively over the last week or so!

  bretsky 23:28 28 Oct 2005

I went over to it a few weeks ago for the same reasons you use it I think it brilliant I love it's flexibility and also its speed and control also the tab browsing feature.
