How to prevent stretched text when using scaleY(2)?

Hello, this is my first post! Great site!

I am stuck with stretched text as a result of applying transform: scaleY(2).

I have the following html:

<div class="item-box">
    <div class="category-item">
        <h2 class="title">
            <a href="#" title="Show product">
                label
            </a>
        </h2>
        <div class="picture">
            <a href="#" title="Show product">
                <img alt="Picture for product" src="path" title="Show product">
            </a>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

And the CSS:
 

IE CSS issues;

I have a site @ https://www.weedshopinc.com On that site i have some IE issues and believe it or not, some firefox2 issues. Let me start with IE issues:
In the boxes on the front page, you will see text like "News" and "Member Login". I have an image that creates the color behind that text in the boxes. Notice how the color (image) does not stretch to the right side of the box. It stops short in IE. In firefox2, that is not seen. Here is the CSS for those colors (images):

.box_header {
font-size:15px;
margin:0;
padding:4px;

I need an expert on CSS&HTML

Please don't say I should have multi line indented coding. My text editor allows deleting & copying a line very easily.

I have narrowed down my problem to the following;

/*1*/<style type="text/css"> .in { position: fixed; width: 100%; left:70%; top: 26%; } </style>
/*2*/<style type="text/css"> .sh { position: fixed; width: 100%; left: 40%; top: 26%; } </style>
 
/*3*/
 
/*4*/<div class="in"> <select name="inout" style="width: 10%; height: 5mm"; >
/*5*/<option value="">Select</option>
/*6*/<option  value="in">In</option>
/*7*/<option  value="out">Out</option>

CSS alignment issue. IE only

My website developed by the Bootstrap4, but the page is confusing on IE, is there any way to solve this problem quickly?

Custom Cursor in Big Cartel

I'm trying to put a different cursor on my Big Cartel site but have never done anything with CSS. I've been copying the CSS coding from various cursor websites and pasting it into the CSS on my Big Cartel site but none of them are working. Here are some examples of the codes that I'm putting in:
