Viewing profile problem (text size)

  1. May 30, 2007 #1
    When I view a user's profile I seem to have the text shifted to the right and smaller size than normal under the "Biography," "Location," and a few others. For example, the following screen shot:

    I am using Firefox (whatever the latest version is, 2. something), and Windows XP.

    Doesn't show up like that with Safari or Firefox on a Mac. I can't help with determining if it's a problem with the Windows version of Firefox, Windows in general, or just you.

    By the way, what's Golden Age Hip Hop? (Saw that in your profile while checking this.) :biggrin:

    Nope, it does not show like that for me. I'm on XP, and using Firefox Version

    ASAIK, Firefox does work differently on different computers, don't really know why. But some add-ons work nicely on my cousins' computer (also in XP SP2), but somehow, does not work quite well for me. :frown:

    Basically, hip-hop from 1987 to 1993.

    Also check out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_age_hip_hop

    If you want to hear some examples check out:

    Eirc B and Rakim - Microphone Fiend -

    BDP (KRS One) - My Philosophy -


    I am using Firefox (just got an automatic update). Add-ons: Adblock plus, All in One Gestures, Forecastfox, Foxy Tunes. There are also other tweaks I have done, but those should not have any effect on it.

    I get those little profile fonts too. I noticed them after Greg did that minor forum upgrade about a week ago.

    I think it's a stylesheet issue.
    The source of the profile page has
    Code (Text):

    <dt class="smallfont"><strong>Age</strong>:</dt> <dd class="smallfont">21</dd>
    and the stylesheet https://www.physicsforums.com/clientscript/vbulletin_css/style-51c57b11-00005.css [Broken]

    Code (Text):
        color: #26353F;
        font: 10px verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif;

    After the upgrade there are some minor edits I need to do in the profile. I'll look into it.
