Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

The web site:http://oklahomaconcealedcarry.com/Caliber_Ammo_Selection.html displays bad with Mozilla Firefox 3.5.6 but it displays ok with MS IE version 8.0.6001.18702.

This is the only URL that I have visited that causes this problem.  


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I first went to http://oklahomaconcealedcarry.com/Concealed_Carry_Thoughts.html
2.Then I went to web site http://oklahomaconcealedcarry.com/Caliber_Ammo_Selection.html either by clicking Caliber and Ammunition Selection or by right clicking to open in new tab.
3.Indented paragraphs overwrite other areas of the display.  Some of the pictures display in the wrong area.  
Actual Results:  
When I copy and paste the URL http://oklahomaconcealedcarry.com/Caliber_Ammo_Selection.html into an open window containing Internet Explorer, the display appears ok.  

Expected Results:  
I expected the display to be bad with Internet Explorer (IE), but it wasn't bad.  It displayed ok.  

By the way, except for this, I really like the way Mozilla Firefox works compared to IE.  



I usually work with Tools> Add-ons> "Shockwave Flash" disabled.  I tried it both turned off and turned on.  The symptoms remained the same.

Unfortunately, the markup in this page was generated by Microsoft Word which has a long history of creating HTML that is only rendered well in MS IE. I just took a look at the markup and it is pretty weird. font tags inside other font tags that wrap images and such. Very strange markup. Not to any HTML spec - and full of deprecated tags and attributes.
