Thanks for addressing the issue. How can I panic when we have people like you ;)

Thanks for pointing this out, its now fixed for FireFox and Opera :mrgreen:

Let me just check I'm understanding this correctly - prepare for ascii art...
This is the way it normally displays

Code: Select all

|---Window size metric----------------------|
.|----------------------------------------------------------------|
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.|| First Post (Normal size) - normally, the text would wrap     ||
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.|| Page breaker post that goes on for far too long for the page ||
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.|| Third Post (Normal size) - normally, the text would wrap     ||
.||--------------------------------------------------------------||
.|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|---Window size metric----------------------|
This is the way it should display with the fix

Is this about what you're talking about? Because in my version of FireFox, it almost works, but not quite... the "normal" size posts are almost entirely inside the window, but not quite - the right hand half of the "Quote" image is cut off (meaning in some cases, the posts still wrap outside the window, meaning I still have to scroll horizontally to read the entire post!). In fact, the amount that is cut off from the right hand size is exactly the size of the left hand margin, so if I scroll horizontally, I can fit the entire post in... is this the intended design?

Oh it appears I havent fully fixed the FireFox side of things then :)

Rocketeer, you're one crazy guy - great ascii ;) :D
You got the jist of my post though so yeah what you said is correct apart from the small indentations of the other posts which you rightly pointed out.
