Is the following caused by Windows 7...

I used FF6 now FF7 + IE9 on Windows 7

A friend is building a website, he posted me the link to check what he'd done so far and do a critiqué. At that time I was viewing it with FF6 on Win 7.

This is how the pictures looked...CLICK HERE

I told him they weren't centred and he didn't understand. He had viewed it using all of the following, in every configuration...FF6 - FF7 - IE8 - Chrome - Safari - WinXP and Vista. In all cases the pictures looked as he had intended, symmetrical.

So I updated to FF7 and tried again, the result was the same as it had been before...Pictures to the left. So I tried with IE9...

This how the pictures look...CLICK HERE...just as they were intended to look. I can only think it has something to do with Windows 7 but what, that's my question?

Unlikely to be anything to do with Windows 7, but without access to the actual URL it isn't possible to check.

Am puzzled, what's wrong with the existing site? - and what's with the 'dine india' bit?

The operating system isn't going to cause this kind of thing. The fact that you saw the page differently in two browser versions points to a browser rendering issue, but it could equally well be related to the way the page has been coded. Without seeing the page (and thus the HTML) I can't tell which.

None of what you see is directly relevent, only indirectly. He (my friend) has nothing to do with 'Deers Leap'. He is in fact a photograper, who was asked to take some photo's for advertising, prior to the opening of the said establishment.

The website he is setting up is a spoof, he is trying to improve on the other one. Because the owner of that establishment is intending to open another gastropub locally. So, my friend see's this as a possible opening for him to get into the web design business. By showing the proprietor his version. This has no relevence to or baring on my problem.

mgmcc and FE


He has since tried it on a Windows 7 OS and it worked as it should on that one too. It's just my FF7 - Windows 7 that it doesn't? I will add that he isn't techie in any respect or even literate. We associate by email, even though if we look out of our windows, we can see each others houses.

When I queried the scenario with him his response was exactly this...

"Strange, but power for the course. Could be your settings, I just try to get as cross browser compatible as possible, and leave it at that.

Doen't pay to try to predict computers and the internet.

At first time if writing this I got a BSOD, no reason!!"

Make of that what you will?

Graphicool1, sorry, I didn't understand. I just did a google for the Deers Leap to see if I could see how it displayed. The link I posted was what came up.

Thanx for that, in your defence you weren't to know. Although I wish you hadn't posted the link 'open'. It is quite feasable that either the guy who owns the pub or an associate could see it and it drop my neighbour/friend in it in some way. Still, what will be will be. At the end of the day I've vitually built that website for him. He did the bare bones, then sent it to me to critiqué. He'd make the corrections I told him then he'd send it back again and again. I've told him type face, colour's, music, picture transitions, speed etc, etc. It's all I did yesterday morning. My wife said I ought to send him a bill for consultancy fees.

'vitually' - virtually

Graphicool1, you could ask FE (when he gets back from Africa) to remove my link if you think it will cause problems. I don't want to cause any problems and I can see how it could be awkward if this came up in a search.

These are the 'Add On's' I have...

I tried disabling these, it made no difference.

When I disabled the Flash, I didn't get any pictures. When I disabled the QT no music.
