Just wondering if anyone is noticing anything funky about the http://www.geekculture.com/ page or others?? I've had a couple of people email and say the formatting is weird, in Leopard Safari and in others browsers...
" ...firefox, galeon, epiphany, and seamonkey align most of the images down the center (until the footer starts with the links to archived comics), and only konqueror and opera look "normal"."

It all looks fine to me, so I'm just trying to figure out what is up. (I think it is the Ghost of Netscape! [Razz] )

Thanks in advance,

Firefox has aligned all the images on the left to the center. The images from the left are also now placed above everything else.
IE has the images on the left still left aligned, but the center and right columns are still showing up below the left images.

If that's confusing I can always try to explain it in a more coherent way.

That's what I was trying to describe, only with the homepage.

I still can't get anything wrong. [cry baby]

I'm wondering if it's something funky in the ad javascript, that only certain people are getting due to geographical locations and targeting.

Snaggy ______________________ I am not sure if this is relavent to the discussion. Occasionly when running the slider bar up to get back to the top of the page. Firefox just goes away, this is happening on an old gateway that I have Ubuntu 6.06 lts installed upon. When I restart Firefox the last history is not there. I'm not blameing your site but it only happens here. Maybe it's from the next to last update I installed, because thats when this behavior started to happen. I usually update within a day of the notice that an update is available.

Snaggy,

I've reloaded your index page about 100 times (uh... sorry about the bandwidth, but at least I'm a superfan?) and every time it's gone wonky in Firefox, the ad below has been displayed on the left sidebar.

In Opera, this particular advertisment never comes up and, if you disable javascript, it no longer comes up in Firefox and the page layout doesn't go wonky.

Thanks Steen!

Yeah, i think tribalfusion has done something to their javascript that is making things funky... don't know if it will be just this ad or not, I'll try turning it off.

edit:
OK, another person who had the same problem had the same insweb.com ads... so I've blocked ads from insweb.com... let me know if that helped. Thanks

Edit again:
a third person confirms the insweb.com funkyiness... and the reports the site is working OK now that they are off. cool

Yeah...I was suspicious of ads...and it does work now.

However, I looked at that code and was quite frightened...ack! I imagine that's a good part of why Gecko burped. 'Tis very strange that WebKit rendered it alright...but maybe it wasn't getting the ad? I didn't pay attn to the ad when it loaded, but it did take awhile to repaint in place...it started out kind of b0rked...which makes sense, given the code (which says 'paint right, then left!').

it's been confirmed by Tribal Fusion as a javascript issue with that ad. Thanks everyone who helped track that down for me.

Dragonman: yep, the code stinks.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
