In Firefox, the upper right corner is jumbled with elements piled on top of one another. Only the twitter button appears to be active.

There is no call to action. Why would the customer visit this page? What's he supposed to do when he gets there?

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

hi Gary. I agree with your

hi Gary.

I agree with your comment about offering no reason why to go there. This is something I have not thought about but as you have mentioned it I will definitely work on it.

in regards to the jumbled elements. can you please provide us with screen shot as im not sure what you mean and I am also using firefox and it works fine my end.

thank you.

Window size

The jumble is a result of using absolute positioning and expecting a large window size. Reduce the browser window to 1024x768 and you will see what I mean.

Oh I see what you mean. if

Oh I see what you mean. if you have a look at the page again. what do you think?

I want to advertise on this page what we have available on our mobile site but i do not want to give the game away. do you have any ideas of how I can do this?

I was thinking of adding another box at the bottom saying who we work with and displaying the comany's logos. do you think that would work?

thanks for your help.

You still have the same

You still have the same issue, but with a different element, and for the same reason. Why are you even using absolute positioning?

Give the game away? Sorry, that does not compute. If people come to your site, give them what they came for. What difference does it make whether they buy/learn here or there? For every site that makes it difficult for the visitor to do what he wants to do, there are all your competitors making it easy — and getting the business.
