Hello Peeps! Smile *waving*

Long time....but I haven't forgotten you.

This is not a site I'm writing or fixing (though I will be adding content) but for me the menu item 'Content' wraps to the next line in FF 12.0 on Mac OS X 10.6.8 - so I can't get to the drop downs from 'Partners'.

But I'm the only one! It's fine in Safari and Chrome on my mac, and it was fine on someone else's FF/macbook Wednesday.
I've reset Zoom and my minimum font is set to 14.

This is the site

Any idea what could be wrong please?

A picture is worth...etc....

Hi, Ducky

I don't see why the overflow li is centered. It should anchor itself to the left side. That's what you get, I guess, with an artsy-fartsy computer. Laughing out loud If it's just you, ignore it? :shrug:

Were it me, I'd set the ul to text-align center, and eliminate the float. Set the li to display inline-block with a fixed width that will fit the wrapper* instead of centering with padding, and don't float.

cheers, and don't be such a stranger,

gary

* Don't forget to allow for the word spacing between inline-block element. You can give the word-spacing property a negative value in ul to eliminate the space. Reset the value to "normal" in li.

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

Mmmm...I guess I just like things "balanced" Tongue

Thanks Gary, if it stuck to the left it wouldn't be a problem but oh no, it has to plonk itself under the only menu item with a drop down. P'raps I'll just use another browser Wink

That's IF I can change it but I guess I forgot the important question...does it do it for anyone else?

I've been thinking about you all but I guess that's not the same as showing up is it?
