Hey chaps - long time no see!
I've got a problem that I just can't figure out and I'm hoping you can shed some light.
The site concerned isn't finished - still some DB work and a bit of tweaking for a small IE issue but the problem I'd really like help with is that when you click on the Skip Link, the primary navigation menu squishes upwards and becomes unreadable - but only in FF.
I can't for the life of me figure out what's going on - any suggestions?
Well, I loaded it in FF
Well, I loaded it in FF 22.214.171.124 PC and clicked the skip to contents. It just goes to an anchor. Nothing changes.
I'm using FF 126.96.36.199 too
I'm using FF 188.8.131.52 too and although I go to where the anchor is, the top nav bar folds up. See attachment.
I'v never seen this sort of behaviour before (except in IE!).

But, I see the page uploaded is now as I posted it, and clicking the skip doesn't cause the problem anymore.

Thanks for that - it was the overflow hidden that did it! I've removed it and, after updating the clearfix thingy for IE7 it all seems calm now.
thanks to everyone who looked.

I used scrapbook to download your site. It removes the xhtml end tags (a bug).
