I don't know if it's just me or what but in FF 1.5 while at the main page of the forums if i click the top link "CSS Forum Index" it will reload the page at bump all the forum titles over to the right one pixel and then if i hit the refresh page button on the browser it bumps it back left one pixel.

anyone else see this? :roll:

noticed something weird

I'm not seeing a 1 pixel movement - maybe it's my eyesight Crying

So I tried putting screenshots of original click and refresh screens in some graphics software and enlarging them but there seem to be the same number of pixels between the forum titles and the vertical left blue border in both screens.

However, I am seeing the Firefox shuffle caused by the vertical scrollbar. Is that what you mean? Firefox temporarily removes this and the loaded page length forces it back again. You can watch it happen. The same thing happens in IE but it is not noticeable because IE reserves the space for the scrollbar anyway.

If you are experiencing similar in your designs there are several threads on the forum about overcoming it, if that is what you want to do.

noticed something weird

When i click the link all the forum titles look like this

when i refresh the index they look like this

exactly one pixel to the left and the scroll bar is there both times

this really doesnt matter - just pointing out the fact that it's kinda weird

Hi Deuce,
You are very observant.
The problem is most likely a rounding error as the padding in the container is 0.2em.
If I was at all concerned about being a pixel out I could fix it using pixel values.
For now the problem will stay as it is, next time I change the site I will try to remember that pixel out of place. Smile

Same for me, always been like that for as long as I can remember.

Aye, but thought it might matter... since it's a CSS forum. Tongue Perfectionists gallore!
