    It seems that there's a newly designed homepage at msn (www.msn.com) and it doesn't seem to display well on Firefox. Of course, it works fine on I.E.

    Have any of you noticed this?

    If it's just a fluke with my system, I guess I'll need some suggestions for a new homepage because I won't go back to I.E.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the response!

    The layout is all wrong. Some of the text seems to overwrite other text. Most of the page items are aligned on the left. This makes for one very loooong page.

    My other computer doesn't seem to have this problem.

    It's really strange.

    Thanks again!!

    Nothing that starts with the "M" word is allowed in my house, but I tortured myself to check the site for you, and it looks fine for me in Firefox, Opera, and Epiphany.

    Is this checked?
    Tools->Options->Content->Font & Colors->Advanced
    Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of my selections above

    Yeah, sounds like you have your preferences out of whack. Play with your font sizes.

    Thanks for the replies. The "normal" page layout seems to have returned, even though I've changed nothing. It's kind of weird. I wonder if it will last....

    I'll take a look at the iGoogle site....thanks.

    Thanks again, folks!
