Build ID: 20120312181643

Steps to reproduce:

I have the developed the following website: www.ActivaMune.com

Actual results:

With all other browsers, the right blue box looks great. IE, Chrome, Safari. Only on FireFox that section is stretched such that I get an extra space underneath it and the blue section shows a space that is viewable underneath the main picture.

Expected results:

That section should look normal like it does in IE, Chrome, Safari, etc. Only FireFox has this issue. It seems like it is stretching the font in that section. If you could please e-mail me and let me know if there is a fix for this, I would be very grateful.

I see no font stretching or blue space under the picture, the page looks identical for me in Firefox, Chrome, Opera and IE.

Before testing how a page looks in all browsers, it might be worth ensuring the page code is valid since a doctype has been used to make it render in Standards Compliance mode, yet the code has 131 errors:

This results unsurprisingly in differing results in our viewing experience, and the errors are due to using an inferior web authoring tool like Microsoft FrontPage. If WYSIWYG is the only way you can create webpages perhaps try http://bluegriffon.org/ instead.

Marking as WORKSFORME.

How to set Minimum font size to "None"

As the page is currently coded text will wrap to more lines if either the page is zoomed in, which can be reset by holding Ctrl and pressing 0
or if you've set a minimum font size in the options, which can be set back to the default of "None" as shown in the attached image.

Dear Mardeq:

Thanks again for your kind advice. However, my browser is already set on that setting and I'm still getting this annoying space underneath my picture on www.activamune.com. I tried with a friend's computer and the same problem persists. How come with IE and Chrome all is fine and only with FireFox this is happening?
