Minimal testcase, anyone (if this is a real bug)?
I'm not seeing this. Can you post a screenshot?

Also, what is your user agent?

Real example of the layout problem

The previous image was a TIFF not a PNG and as a result gave "The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors."

A screenshot of the entire page would be nice. :)

dupe of bug 288047 ?
(based on that screenshot, and the fact the site specifies 'Bitstream Vera Sans' in the stylesheet)
